In the previous episode, Goode revealed that he was abducted by the lower-level secret space program (SSP) who performed a chemical interrogation wherein he inadvertently identified three SSP Alliance assets, one of whom was Lt. Col. Gonzales. In the past, Gonzales and Goode enjoyed friendly relations as colleagues in the SSP Alliance, yet after this event, Gonzales became increasingly hostile towards Goode. Gonzales was rescued by the inner-Earth Anshar group before suffering harm but the other two assets leaked were compromised, one being killed and the other having gone missing. The loss of Gonzales' associates, combined with a severing of communication with his superiors in the SSP Alliance and the loss of his cover life on Earth cause Gonzales to lose equanimity and become reactive. Although Goode is troubled by Gonzales' unnecessary aggressiveness, he realizes that Gonzales was emotionally reactive and not thinking clearly.
Before continuing with this aspect of the update, Goode shared that he was taken to a base in the Kuiper belt to see Gonzales and Kaaree some time after Gonzales was asked to leave the inner-Earth Anshar city. At this base, Goode met with a man calling himself the Wrangler, a Drill Sargent-type asset within the SSP Alliance given the task of motivating operatives who had fallen short in their eyes. During that meeting, Gonzales and the Wrangler provided sparse intelligence to Goode wherein it was revealed that the Cabal has been fleeing to secret bases in Antarctica and South America for several weeks. David Wilcock confirmed via his sources (Pete Peterson and Bruce) that the Cabal was moving technology and supplies to a safe location because certain Earth-based Alliances were making plans to take them out in North America and Europe.
