The battle between the Darkness

and the Light has waged eternal,

their armies fueled by

souls harvested on Earth.

The Lord of Darkness, Malebolgia,

has sent a lieutenant...

...to recruit men who will

help destroy the world...

...in exchange for wealth and power...

...and provide enough souls

to complete his army...

...and allow Armageddon to begin.

All Malebolgia needs now is a great soldier,

someone to lead his hordes

to the gates of Heaven...

...and burn them down.

Like him, I killed in the name of good,

but the violence of my life, pulled

my soul towards the darkness.

But I fought and freed my soul.

Now I watch for others like me.

Men are the ones who create evil on Earth.

It is the choices they make

that enslave their souls.

This is the test.

Josef as-Amifar, the leader of the

Algerian Revolutionary Front...

...was killed yesterday along

with 26 innocent civilians...

...in a vicious rocket attack

at an airport in Hong Kong.

There has been an outpouring

of anti-U. S. sentiments...

...sweeping across the globe.

Protesters in Libya,

Bosnia, France, Moscow...

...and the United States...

...are joining together to denounce this....

Simmons is the best.

Simmons is not the problem.

He's overseas killing the bad guys...

Like the hero that he thinks he is.

We made a deal, Wynn.

Where the hell is the ultimate

weapon you promised us?

This isn't a game we're playing.

Engineering a biological

weapon is an exact science.

You want it done right,

you do it my way.

This five-year plan of yours

just chaps my buttocks.

I'm making you a guarantee.

All you have to do is keep

certain agencies off my back...

...and make damn sure I get all

that I've been promised.

This is me you're taking to.

If I say you're the man, you're the man.

You do for me, and in no time

you'll be running this place.

And when the big piata

breaks, you'll get it all.

Just make sure you keep

your end of the bargain.

P.S...

There's one more item on our 'to do' list.

It requires your personal attention.

We need you to help recruit a

very special soldier for us.

Your all-time favorite killer, Al Simmons.

Simmons? He's doing a

great job where he is.

Why do you want him?

Why do you people always question?

Why ask 'Why', when 'How'

is so much more fun?

Oh... not again.

Hey, Wanda, do me a favor.

- Yeah?

Buy your man a watch.

He's on his way out.

Do me a favor.

What's that?

Make sure he's back for

dinner tomorrow night.

I'll do my best.

Make sure he's back for

dinner, tomorrow night, Terry.

Yes, ma'am.

Hey, Spaz.

Same routine, all right?

Guard the house.

Guard Wanda.

Great guard dog.

Here.

Hey, Al, what happened last night?

Look at this.

What a friggin' mess.

We were supposed to be

taking out the bad guys,

not innocent bystanders.

Another Jason Wynn special.

What do you mean?

Seems like an awful lot of Wynn's

ops have screwed the pooch lately.

Don't worry, Al. Lighten up.

I got your back.

Semper Fi.

Good to go.

All right.

I'm gonna keep my eye on Wynn.

Vehicle secure.

The airport kill zone was supposed

to be clear of civilians.

An unfortunate, but necessary sacrifice.

You want someone filling

body bags, you send Priest.

If you can't handle it, I will.

I will send whoever,

wherever I choose.

You will follow orders,

and do your job.

Got a problem with that, soldier?

Yes, I do, sir...

...and I want out.

I always knew you'd lose your nerve.

You don't quit us, son.

We are not the U.S. Postal Service.

Have you read your profile recently?

You are a borderline psychopath,
