Brassel chided Ethan about the failed mission to Berlin. He questioned Ethan's prior recommendations regarding young trainee agent Lindsey Farris and her ability to be engaged in a failed surveillance mission. Hunt explained how their objective was only a limited one, to rescue Farris, not to capture any of Davian's men and that none of the dozen men there would have known about Davian's overall operation. Brassel criticized the operation planned by Musgrave as "poorly conceived and executed worse." The hard-drives in the damaged laptop computers taken from the warehouse were burned, scorched, and had holes, unsalvageable. Brassel described how they should have pursued Davian and that they have reminded Davian that he was winning.
Ethan retrieved a microdot containing a video of Lindsey warning him that she believes Brassel is working with Davian; Musgrave was later revealed to be the actual mole.
Following the completion of of the initial mission and the rescue of Julia Meade, Brassel congratulated Ethan and told him if he stayed with IMF that he would tell him what the Rabbit's Foot was before wishing both him and Julia well and to have fun on their honeymoon.
