Everything is black. 

Trust Issues

Everything goes black. When the team wakes up they are back in the circular white room. While Mahmoud and Andy lay on the floor, this time ECHIDNA is left to experience the situation through their senses. Alongside the duo are three more figures, quickly identified as Captain Boomerang Jr., The Comedian, and Elektra. As everyone pulls themselves to their feet the door slides open and Waller steps into the room. "Team, I have a mission for you. Two hours ago a business jet was hijacked and set down on a remote airstrip in Idaho. You are to deploy to the area, take over the operation from any local response, secure the perimeter, breach the plane, take out the hijackers, and turn the operation back over to the locals. You are to accomplish all of this before any media arrives on the scene. Questions?"

When Waller sees that no one has any further questions she steps out of the room and everything goes black again. As Mahmoud and Andy regain conciousness, ECHIDNA still watching from their eyes, they realize they are still in the white room. Captain Boomerang Jr., Comedian, and Elektra are all missing this time. The door opens and Waller returns. "As you are aware, I did not bring you in for traditional deployments. However, due to interference with my plans, I've decided that you will continue to deploy alongside the Squad until I can determine who's team you're playing for. As to not waste your unique talents or hinder your ability to work together as a duo I have secondary orders for you. One of the civilian passengers on board is Susanna Gould. You are to take her out along with the hijackers. Understood?"

Once Waller is satisifed that the team understands their orders everything goes black... again. This time only Andy wakes up in the white room, Mahmoud has been removed and ECHIDNA has been blocked from the standard Task Force X channel, though he still watches from the secure line provided by Checkmate. "One last thing, Andy. You have a special purpose. One above and beyond anyone else on the team. You were brought in to be our executioner. I expect you to eliminate Squad members who have betrayed the team. Tonight, while deployed, you need to kill Owen Mercer. Preferably during the breach of the plan, when blame can be laid to rest with the hijackers. Is this all understood?"
