Why do people climb mountains, jump out of planes or wrestle alligators? Because they’re there. Because only by pushing yourself, mind and body, can you hope to make yourself stronger. Vlad, Jack and Olga need to be stronger. Strong enough to fight a war, strong enough to save their people, strong enough to save themselves.
