For the destruction of the Oberkommando facility, B.J. heads to Rosewell armed with a handful of atomic weapons. B.J. makes a diversion to Mesquite, his birthplace, after leaving the place forever.
Abusing dad reveals to him in Mesquite how justified his torture was. His mother was sold Germans, too, as he reveals to B.J. Nevertheless, after killing his dad, B.J discovers that he had been working with Engel. B.J.’s ancestral jewelry is taken by Engel when she arrests him.
