Jennifer was chatting with others at the company when Andrew was stealing copyrighted software from Microsoft. Melanie came in and greeted her, then joking on Andrew that he would be caught someday. But Andrew suddenly found some encrypted codes that could corrupt the Internet. Melanie warned him to call the authorities. Reluctantly, Andrew went out for a coffee and called his friend Chloe O'Brian who worked at a government agency.
Unbeknownst to Andrew, the perpetrators traced his activity and sent hitmen Abdul Mahnesh and Kalil Hasan to eliminate the threat. They killed everyone present in the office except Melanie, and tortured her for information.
