They met on the terrace of a high rise building during a party or ball, hinting that although they seem to be acting like strangers, they do indeed have some sort of past and they embrace in a passionate kiss.
The Colonel told her that everything will be all right and with a silenced gunshot ended her life as he was told. The next day he collected his reward.Delia in his sisterhood of assassins. He tracked down her former lover, Jim. Jim noticed him stalking him and ran into Kadie's. He ordered a drink from Josie when the Colonel mysteriously appeared briefly nearby ordering "stoli martini, two olives". Then he was confronted by Delia, his ex-flame.
They go back to his place and make love. She then attacks him, and explains that this is her final test. She wants to become a hitwoman, and she must first kill the only man she ever loved. After killing Jim, the Colonel appeared, being there all the time. He gave her an assignment and she takes on the name 'Blue Eyes', which is what Jim used to call her.Delia fails to meet Eddie Dubois and instead meets Phil, bothered, she kills him. She meets up with the Colonel and Gordo at the entrance to the Pits. They open the trunk of Phil's car to put him inside and find his wife with six bullets in her belly. They throw him in as well and Gordo pushes the car into the pits. Delia explains to the Colonel that she has a train to catch in 3 hours, and she should do it instead of Mariah.
The Colonel is now running the organisation's organ harvesting and human trafficking ring. He was also threatening Commissioner Liebowitz' family.
