Brian Dennehy is preparing to die for your sins.
“I’ve had six other hostage negotiators in here,” he’ll say, muzzle trembling at his temple, BDRI scrawled on his forehead in blood. “You’re not going down like they did. Not this time.”

“You will this time,” he’ll say, your finger between his and the trigger. “You’ll pay attention. Attention must be paid.”
