Reese is shot InTheBack.


* RealityEnsues: Reese follows a [=PoI=] to a remote location without cellphone reception. He knows that the [=PoI=] is either a vicious killer or the likely target of one, yet he still goes there alone, without any backup or means of calling for help. A moment's inattention get him shot and it's definitely not OnlyAFleshWound. While Reese is able to take the shooter down, he barely has the strength to retrieve his car keys and crawl to his car. Due to the cold, the car won't start, and Reese does not have the strength left to look for help or some other shelter. One of the show's biggest {{Determinator}}s is forced to sit in a freezing car waiting to either bleed out to death or more likely die from hypothermia.
