Intro Quote:

“Spies are trained to immediately when an operation goes bad. Every minute that goes by is another minute your enemy can use to regroup and get stronger but there are times when you have to remember that denying grief and loss and love can be dangerous too because in the heat of battle you have to know what your fighting for.” Michael Westen
