As Chris is pulling up into Lower Heyford Air Force Base, he is seen talking to Jess over the phone. She asks her husband how MajorShepherd can keep extending his rotation, and Chris said that, as commanding officer, Shepherd can do what he wants. Jess encourages Chris to stand up to Shepherd, adding that she never gets to see him anymore, but even when she does, he is "a wreck." Chris implores her to hang in until the weekend, saying that they can book a nice hotel in London then. He then tells Jess that he has to go, and she, visibly worried, hangs up.
