Ex-Navy SEAL Jonah Whitman was sentenced to six years in prison after nearly killing a man in a bar fight. Ten months into his sentence, he made his escape.
While digging up weeds on chain gang duty, ex-Navy SEAL Jonah Whitman found himself paired with a chatty new inmate named Casey. Paranoid and suspecting that his talkative new friend might be working for Alastor, a paramilitary group he used to be an employee of, Jonah decides to test him. He throws two quick punches at the inmate’s face. Casey blocks neither. Jonah then apologies to the man for what is about to happen. Before Casey can react, Jonah slams the butt end of his shovel into the inmate’s face, knocking him out cold. Jonah then uses the business end of the shovel to separate Casey’s foot from his leg, freeing Jonah from their shared leg shackles.
Still in cuffs, Jonah makes for the river. He dives in and avoids the guards’ fire by swimming 100 yards against the current without coming up for air. After climbing out on the opposite shore, he dislocates his own thumb in order to free his hands from what’s left of his chains, then disappears into the forest.
Jonah makes his way to the home of Chase Lansing, an employee of Alastor. He sneaks up on Chase in his garage, shoving him up against a wall and demanding to know who made the call that put him behind bars. Chase tells Jonah to get help. Instead, Jonah covers Chase’s nose and mouth, suffocating him. Jonah locates a bowling ball bag and an axe. He uses the axe to remove Chase’s head, and the bag to transport it.
Jonah makes his way to Alastor headquarters where he sneaks in using Chase’s head to open the optical scanner locks. He takes down several guards on his way to locate Greg Bleers, who is frantically deleting files. He forces Greg to copy all the files on the “Yemen Operation” to a flash drive, then kills him.
After meeting up with the last living member of his SEAL team and retrieving a bit of video evidence to use against Alastor, Jonah heads straight to the home of Kendra Park, Executive Director of Alastor. He finds two guards out front. The first he kills by slicing open his throat. He sneaks up behind the second and snaps his neck. Inside, he is shot by Kendra, but he still manages to engage her in an intense fist fight. She pulls a knife and stabs him, putting an end to the scuffle.
Ray shows Lloyd a new postcard from Damien. On the front is an image of ancient Babylon. The message reads, “I Persevere. I Excel. What’s your condition?” Lloyd eventually realizes that Persevere and Excel is the motto of NYU. Adding up Damien’s interest in Lloyd’s medical profession, NYU and Babylon leads Lloyd to ask Julianne to check the NYU library catalogue for any books on Esagil-kin-apli, the Babylonian Godfather of Pharmacology. The NYU library has one book that matches.
Lloyd tracks down the book in the NYU library and discovers a note inside with a clipping from his own arrest. There is a picture of him on his “perp walk” with the headline, “Student ODs, Professor Arrested.” The note reads, “Killing one COED is fine but more is better – D.F.”
Lloyd exits the library where Damien skillfully sneaks up and injects him with something that knocks him out. When Lloyd comes to, Damien is setting up a camera. He opens a footlocker and shows Lloyd the nineteen-year-old girl inside. He suggests they raise the stakes a bit.
Lloyd and Damien are face-to-face again, but now it’s Damien asking the questions. He puts the girl’s life on the line over a game of poker. Lloyd wins the game, but instead of letting the girl go, Damien reminds Lloyd that he is insane.
Damien calls 911, telling them who he is and what he is about to do. He moves to put an end to Lloyd, but doesn’t at the last minute. Instead, he kills the girl as Lloyd watches, restrained and helpless. Lloyd is left shaken. Damien escapes again.
Back at the bullpen Lloyd tells Ray that he’s done. He wants out. Lloyd Lowery quits.
