Before they reach the airport, he stops at the home of the banker Harry (James Fox), who gave him the tip. Bass kills Harry and again questions Dove about Logan. Dove again feigns ignorance as to Logan's whereabouts. The two leave and Dove is dropped off at the airport. Back in Spain, Harry pals around with his friends.
