As Tomas is getting undressed, Matt stabs a knife through his injured hand and tells Angela to leave. Matt asks Tomas where Rostov is. Victor grabs Matt and asks him what is going on and Matt throws him out and warns him not to come back. Tomas tells Matt he doesn't know where Rostov is, but tells him where they next attack will be. Victor and his friend walk into the room and Matt easily knocks down Victor's friend.
