At first, he views Claude's refusal to answer as a betrayal of their partnership -- of their friendship, because for the past several years they have been friends. Good friends; possibly even best friends. They trusted each other; watched each other's backs, saved each other's lives -- and in the end foolish, stubborn Claude refuses to give him the information that would save his life.

It's not easy to do it -- he doesn't want to shoot his friend -- but in his nervousness his finger twitches and squeezes the trigger, and the loud crack of the shot makes both of them jump. And then there's blood and Claude's flickering and fading around the edges, and there's no going back now... More shots, and just like that his best friend is gone...

It isn't until he sees the looks in Claire's and Sandra's eyes when he tells them Claude isn't coming back that he truly realizes the betrayal was his.

It hasn't been the first, and he realizes with a sinking feeling in the pit of his stomach that it's far from the last...
