No sooner have they said goodbye outside the hotel than Andrey sees Yelena being attacked by a group of unknown men who clearly are trying to kidnap her. Andrey rushes to help and successfully overcomes the attackers, who immediately run off. Andrey and Yelena try to figure out who the men were and what they were after, but it seems there are more questions than answers.
