Moya, concerned that Brandon had not checked in asks Cole to locate the electrician. Cole makes his way to the alley Moya believed him to be in, but all he finds is Lynnae’s remains. Using his powers, Cole is able to see a vision of Brandon’s abduction, and is then able to follow Brandon’s residual neuro-electric energy to his hiding place in the sewers. Brandon is furious that Cole has tracked him down asking if Cole was seen, when Cole explains that he needs to get through the gate, Brandon refuses, stating that “The Reapers will kill my wife! No one is getting in here!”.
Cole presses Brandon, but the electrician would not be moved, “Screw you! I’ve jammed this thing up tight. No one is getting in or out until she’s safe!”. Cole then breaks the news that Lynnae had been murdered, Brandon opens the gate but in his grief asks Cole to “kill all of them”.
It is unknown if Brandon remained in Empire City after his wife’s death, but if he did remain it is assumed he died in the Empire Event. Template:SecNonCanon If Cole is evil, when Brandon refuses to open the gate for him, Cole hit's Brandon with an electrician blast so powerful, that it, not only kills the electrician, but also destroys the gate, giving him access to the substation.
