Soul Patch watches the surveillance tape at his desk and sees Nina and Kiefer struggling with the gun moments before. After he finds a tissue and puts the lube away, he notices Kiefer going to the closet and picking out the jacket for Nina. "Why did he give her a flak jacket?" he asks himself. Good boy, Soul Patch! You're finally being useful!
Back at the oil fields, Nina sits up and pulls the bullets from Kiefer's gun out of the flak jacket. She gets up off the bare ground, dusts herself off, and stumbles back to civilization -- as I imagine she does on many a morning, if you catch my drift. The time is 6:59:58...6:59:59…7:00:00 AM. Hey! No one died!
