Heidi: The facility housed 18 soldiers at a time.

We used their medical records to find men who had basic PTSD markers.

We delivered the medication to see if the memories were deleted.

You don't remember that?


SHRIER: You just took them?

You even know what they are?

You forced a-a second meal on Walter Cruz who'd already had his full dose?

He's gonna be f*cking incapacitated!

I have a situation here.

Somewhat urgent.

Gloria: What have you done to him?

Thomas: I'm looking into a complaint regarding Walter Cruz.

I just have some questions about a Geist program.


Are you familiar with that?

Not really, no.

Although that program's no longer operational.

You bring this thing home for me, I could see you moving up to Redwood.

And then maybe we get you out to the farm.

Meet Mr. Geist.

What were you doing at the Homecoming facility?

He's filing that complaint.

Okay, t-that's just reality, so we should focus on that.

Colin: T-the roller? Audrey, that's all me.

Audrey: Mr. Geist and I discussed all of that.

You talked to Geist?

Yes, at his farm.

Audrey: Have you been?

Shall we continue?
