Six months ago.
Roxxon employees drill for oil in Galveston. One of the workers is frightened, says he knew it wasn't oil here. There's lightning or electricity coming out of the pump. The worker asks God to forgive them...
Cut to the present. Kaine's minding his own business, swinging through the city and bitching about the Houston humidity when a missile takes out the top of a skyscraper. Kaine saves a damsel in distress, who express her gratitude with...benefits. Kaine's thinking this is a mistake later, and boy is it, because when he asks what happened at the building, she's like, "It was all a blur after I fired the first rocket."
She thinks he was there for the same reason as her, because of something that happened at Galveston. And her name is Zoe. Some mean looking guys show up and Kaine bails out the window.
Roxxon claims the missile attack in Houston was a gas leak. Kaine does some corporate raider style research into things, which leads him to David Walsh....
And back to Zoe, who is sitting in Walsh's office.
Turns out she's Walsh's daughter, and he says they covered everything up to keep her out of prison.
Walsh warns him to leave before things escalate, which Kaine finds unlikely, until the Rangers show up...
