Briefing[edit | edit source]
Without any other compelling leads to follow, Cate heads to Akron, Ohio to search for clues at the former residence of the notorious Melvin Blitzny. Blitzny, a vacuum cleaner salesman by trade, had been groomed to assume the identity of UNITY operative Tom Goodman as part of H.A.R.M.'s last despicable plot. He met his end at the hands of his own mentor.
Whatever trepidation Cate may feel at entering the domain of this treacherous man must be set aside if she is to achieve her goal.
Synopsis[edit | edit source]

An upset Dmitrij Volkov has no less than 18 H.A.R.M. Thugs thrown into the Man-Handler upon learning that Archer is still alive. The Director confronts Isako and instructs her to bring back proof she has killed Archer.
Back at UNITY Headquarters, Archer, Bruno Lawrie, Isaac Barnes and Morgan Hawkins discuss the information that was brought back from Siberia.

Further searching also finds correspondence between Mr. Smith and Blitzny.

As Archer follows her, the tornado picks up the mobile home and the battle continues in the air.
Scene 5: Carried Away[edit | edit source]
Another short cutscene plays. Archer proclaims that Isako is very determined. Isako tells Archer that she made a promise. The boss battle begins with the mobile home being ripped apart. Using only a Katana, Archer fights off Isako. When Isako is damaged enough she uses her Umbrella to fly off into the tornado.
Memorable quotes[edit | edit source]
"Diary of Tom Goodman, volume 5, December 9, 1965. A breakthrough at last. She wasn't good-looking and she smelled like a horse, but she was woman enough for me. The last obstacle to my success as a super spy has been conquered. As of today, I am no longer a virgin. Yeeeeeeehawwwwww!"
- -Melvin Blitzny (audio diary recording)
