BRANDON: I disagree, sir. I think we should tell him.

COMMANDER: Brandon, his head needs to be in the mission. EXALT has to be stopped tonight or we may lose them forever. Once they realize we know the location of their base, they’ll disappear. 

BRANDON: And I get that, sir. I do. But Colonel Korenman has already sacrificed a terrible amount to be here with us. Are we really about to ask him for more?

COMMANDER: We aren’t asking him for anything. We’re just not telling him yet.

BRANDON: But it could help him fight harder. Give him something to hope for. 

COMMANDER: Everyone who has ever been taken was killed. What makes you so sure about this?

BRANDON: The way it happened. She wasn’t taken to be harvested. She was selected for something. We need to find out what. And the Colonel should know as much as we do. 

COMMANDER: I’ve made my decision, Brandon. Until such time as I deem necessary, Colonel Korenman is to learn nothing more about his fiancee.
