Another piece of the Richard Drucker puzzle melts into place.
It is rumored that the enigmatic Richard Drucker is living among the monks of the Himalayas. Drucker has lived all over the world, but how did he end up in Bhutan? And why has he remained there to this day?

Summary

Fifteen years ago, Richard Drucker flies his personal pilot, Hampton "Goose" Connolly, over the Himalaya Mountains through a strong snowstorm. Goose looks ahead through his binoculars and sees Bhutan in the distance. He comments on its beauty as Drucker tells him that's good to hear because they're about to crash there, and sure enough, they crash right behind it as three monks look on in horror.

Goose tells himself Richard thought fate had called him to this place, and Goose had nothing better to do (not to mention he thought the women were nice), so they stayed there until the present day.

In his hut, Goose lies on his stomach as a man enters and tells Goose he thought they had a no-internet policy here, noting Goose's computer on the desk. Goose says rules are meant to be broken as the man, revealed to be Bob, cocks his gun. Bob tells Goose he isn't Drucker while Goose says he's not his masseuse.

Bob asks where Drucker is and Goose tells him he hasn't seen him since the crash. He says he should've never let an amateur pilot like Drucker fly in such rough conditions, and after the crash, the monks took care of him. When Goose went to check on him, he was gone. Disbelieving, Bob grabs Goose's wrist and slowly begins to turn his arm into gold.

Goose screams in pain as Bob asks again where Drucker is. He tells him Drucker's vanished, but Bob knows he's alive and asks one more time where he is, commenting that if Goose doesn't tell him, he won't be alive. Goose seems to succumb to the torture, telling Bob that Drucker left about a month or two ago, but he doesn't know where he was going. Bob asks Goose if he thinks he looks like a fool as he continues to turn Goose's entire body to gold.

A few Company men carry Goose's golden body away as Bob cleans his glasses. While Bob looks determinedly at a laptop, Goose's body is shown behind him in a vat of molten liquid.
