Gael tells Kim she shouldn't have walked into this. He needs to ask her questions and reminds her that the room is soundproof so all she will do if she screams is make him angry. She asks what is he doing with her father. He says he is asking the question. Gael duct tapes her feet. He asks how long they are expecting her to be in there. She answers about 10 minutes. He duct tapes her hands to the chair arms and her mouth shut. Gael goes to the terminal and shuts down the file. It will take 11 minutes and 23 seconds to complete the process.
