The couple rushes to the train yard and catches up with the train on a stolen jeep. Nate boards the train, and after fighting his way through Lazarevic's lines of defense, comes across Chloe, who is upset about how Nate had insisted that they take Elena and Jeff along with them earlier.
She refuses to go with him, instead, telling him to get off the train, and as the two argue Flynn arrives and shoots Nate in the abdomen. As he is about to fire again and kill Nate, Chloe causes Flynn's next shot to miss Nate by pushing his arm aside. Nathan takes the opportunity to flee back through the train. Nate escapes the crashed train and trudges through a snowstorm, eventually falling unconscious due to his wounds and exhaustion.

Elena is overjoyed to see Nate, believing that he was dead. She leads him to the sofa where he rests his head on her lap. She updates him on Sullivan's situation: he, Marlowe, and her crew are in a convoy heading into the desert. Marlowe had a two-day start, so catching up to them on foot or motor vehicle would be impossible.
Elena discovered that an airplane would be making a supply drop to the convoy, so she planned on sneaking onto the plane, dropping in on the convoy, and rescuing Sullivan. Since the plane wasn't taking off until dawn, Elena insisted Nate rest. Nate asked Elena if she planned on rescuing Sullivan by herself, to which she replied she'd do anything to save him. Nate tells her that he likes the way she thinks.

He finds that Marlowe's men have occupied the town, and is rescued by a Bedouin tribe. Salim , the Sheikh of the tribe takes Nate to his camp, telling him that his scouts have been tracking Marlowe's convoy for two days. Nate explains how Marlowe has Sully and in turn, explains that Sully knows the location to the lost city of Iram.
