They will pretend to comply with the Mercenaries warning to leave, but the Team, and Movie Crew will stay, and plan a surprise for the Mercenaries when they return. The Leader of the Mercenaries warned the Cast, and Crew to move to another section of the Town, or there will be trouble when they return in an hour. The Team chooses to ignore this guys threat.

Hannibal finds an International War Criminal name Ramon Jarraro. Jarraro had arrived in the Country sometime after Face had left days ago. Jarraro takened over the Country when he took many women, and children hostage including the Chief of Polices wife, and child. This explains the Chiefs attitude from earlier on.
