Nicole, concerned for Eric and his obvious nightmare, prompts him to tell her what he was dreaming about. At first Eric puts her off, but Nicole persists, even wondering if perhaps he has residual feelings for her that he feels in conflict with now. Eric softens, letting her down easy as he promises that's not it. He finally relents and tells her a harrowing story of his time in the Congo, revealing his guilt over the death of a priest who stepped forward to save an innocent life in the line of fire. Eric believes that should have been him - he should've been more courageous.
