Fitz was taken to the Blue Raven Ridge and interrogated because he was suspected of having helped the other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to escape. Fitz denied all the accusations but acknowledged that he was responsible for the death of Director Mace. He then offered to fully cooperate in order to locate the other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, being provided books to elaborate on multiple theories. While looking for his friends, Fitz sent fan letters to a football magazine. However, over the course of six months, none of them proved to be relevant and General Hale grew wary of Fitz's failed attempts.
Former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Lance Hunter began to receive coded messages from fan letters from Leo Fitz. Hunter disguised himself as an attorney to break him out of his prison. As Fitz attempted to discuss his own personal escape plan spanning over a month, Hunter revealed that he came up with his own and intended to break him out right then. After blowing out the wall to the prison, Hunter and Fitz left the building to immediately see Rusty Peltzer accidentally kill himself by crashing the helicopter they were supposed to leave in. Fitz and Hunter then escaped using Peltzer's RV.
Robin Hinton opened up that Leo Fitz was required to save his friends in the future where they were sent, and Enoch agreed to help him get there, revealing a capsule that could take him there. However, he also revealed it's at Blue Raven Ridge.
Lance Hunter and Fitz then worked together to break back into the facility, using false identities and ferrets as a distraction. They soon enough found the capsule, while also discovering the Zephyr One, which was also put into storage. After fighting their way through some soldiers, they escape with both the capsule and the Zephyr.
After they successfully stole equipment, Hale summoned Evans and Lucas. They feared that they would be downgraded because of their failures, but Hale simply executed both of them in cold blood.
