He takes her along on an assignment in Kenya and later establishes an "arrangement" with her in Amsterdam.

He is then assigned to Vietnam, tells Candice their affair is over and discovers that is more than acceptable to her as she as tired of him. Returning from a Vietnamese prison, he decides to return to Catherine, but discovers she has made a new life for herself.
