Buffer’s new girlfriend has decided to take a holiday, and since Buffer is not available she is going with another friend – a male friend. Buffer trusts her, but the banter of his shipmates soon make him question his trust and he starts a desperate attempt to try to contact her. On shore leave, and still grumpy with his ship mates who are continuing to wind him up, Buffer sees a person that he thinks is could be part of the rebel forces behind the attacks on Samaru, so decides to follow him. His pursuit leaves him locked in a cargo container which soon puts to sea. The following day, and Hammersley is due to sail, but no-one can find Buffer until Charge notices a voicemail from Buffer which goes some way to explaining his disappearance, and Hammersley sets out to find what has happened to him. The container ship with Buffer on board pulls into shore, and Buffer is able to get a short message to Hammersley, but with very little information about his location. Buffer decides to follow the mercenaries to their camp, and is surprised to see Ray Walsman is running the operation. Using his phone to take photos and gather evidence, just as his girlfriend calls and the noise alerts the mercs to his presence. Taken prisoner by the mercs Walsman orders him to be killed. Hammersley are in a desperate search to find him, knowing he is in trouble, but with little to go on, and all the while they are searching Buffer, with a gun to his head, has been ordered to dig his own grave.
