Boomer/Tyrol Projections:
Tyrol finds himself in a house. Someone can be heard humming. He finds Boomer in the dining room, wearing a dress. He wants to know where they are. Tyrol spots a wedding picture of the two of them. She says that it's their house on Picon that they dreamed of having after mustering out of the military. He tells her to stop.

Tyrol opens the doors to looks outside as Boomer walks up behind him and hands him a beer.

Tyrol walks inside. He looks in a cabinet for two glasses when he turns and notices markings on the wall. He looks at Boomer, who is standing beside the markings.

Tyrol walks up the stairs, opens the door and finds their daughter sitting on her bed. He walks in as Boomer follows behind him. He goes over and sits next Dionne as she reads.

Boomer and Tyrol kiss in the living room of their house.

Tyrol enters the empty house. He looks all around for Boomer. Tyrol walks into Dionne's bedroom and finds it empty. He falls to his knees.
