Orson’s window for contact is closing and his team is torn on what to do.
The panic code protocol Orson operates under has a two hour wait-time built in to prevent another form of panic making things worse. Experience has taught him that giving the agent time to solve things themselves also prevents the support team from rushing headlong into danger unprepared. The way Orson sees it, two hours gives the support team time to adequately prepare for a rescue, or to fully determine that a rescue isn’t worth the effort. The two hour wait has not been a popular part of the protocol with the team members under Orson’s command.
