As he tries to find his way back to Paris with the help of German-born Marie (Franka Potente), Jason starts to realize that his flashes involving a yacht and a dictator from the news, Nykwana Wombosi (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), and random outbursts that point to his skills not quite being on the right side of life.
