Pete: I’ve just had every drop of alcohol sucked out of my system by a magic spell, so I’ve literally got the hangover from hell— I’ve got the P.M., the J.I.C. chair, and the D.G.S. of Box and the S.I.S. on call-waiting at 4 a.m.— And I have no intention of bowing my head to, or even acknowledging the grief that’s engulfed us because we have urgent work to do. Say “sir.”Dane:Sir.Faiza:Sir.Pete: Nobody else’s family got hit. So you got two degrees of @#$% thrown at you. So they really want the wielder of Excalibur out of the game. So you stay in.Faiza: Sir.Pete: And that’s your codename now, “Excalibur”, because I want them to hear that. We move as a team. You won’t harm or pursue Dracula until you’re under orders to do so. And then you’ll harm him a great deal.Faiza:Thank you, sir.Pete: And listen, Faiza, Dane— We can’t find Jac. So we have to assume the worst there too. All kinds of worsts. But this is us. We’re on this. Our finest hour. It has to be.
