The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. They're there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something: to stop the people who don't want it badly enough.

He is threatened by Sienna who did not enjoy being abducted early in the morning and nearly drowned in the first trial. He is directed by Nathan Specter to set the simulator room to the highest setting which resulted in it being destroyed by Sophia Dimitrov.

Dream A Little Dream of Me

Ian has a confrontation with Arabella Martin after his class ends.  He is dismissive of her anger over the trials the students had to endure, but he is unable to offer any further insight into the threat they all face.  He scolds Arabella that his public classroom is no place to discuss such matters.
