As Cate Archer was attempting to follow the group, Baroness Dumas asked Gierchna for a status report. He cheerfully reported that some of the men had gotten into a snowball fight with some of the local kids and that McCoy received a bloody nose. Enraged, the Baroness asked for his name and then promptly fired him. When Gierchna asked why, she responded that it would make a scene if she had him shot right there. He stayed behind while the rest of the men left with the Baroness.
- Despite being fired, Gierchna will attack Archer if he sees her.
