Ok so Dragon talks Hemlock into doing one last kill, telling him they do not know the targets name but he will be on a international climb of Eiger mountain and will have a limp. They want Hemlock to go on the climb and kill the guy, probably making it look like a climbing accident.
So Hemlock goes to his old pal and asks to whipped into shape, which the guy does.
While training an old friend/foe? comes to the resort where he is training and makes an attempt on his life, which fails and Hemlock leaves him to die in the desert.
So now the climb is underway, Hemlock’s old pal came with and is watching from the base. He sees a storm approaching and realizes Hemlock is in trouble, he organizes and rescue.
While this is going on aunt Jemima and another assassin(they both work for Dragon the same fellow Hemlock works for) are chatting and he tells her Hemlock is the target, this whole thing has been a ruse just to kill Hemlock.
Thew storm makes conditions dangerous and everyone except for Hemlock dies in a fall, his old pal finds him and rescues him. Hemlock realizes his old pal is limping and realizes his old pal was the one he was supposed to kill, his old pal confirms it.
They get to the bottom, Jemima is there to meet him and she doesn’t say shit. Then Dragon calls on the phone and congratulates Hemlock, saying he obviously had the guts to kill all three guys because he didn’t know who the target was and says good job man.
WTF? Was the target Hemlock or not?!
If the target was his old pal, how did dragon know he would be on the mountain AND know he would be limping? The friend says the unusually cold weather has him limping because of an old injury, so dragon can predict the future?
