He tries not to pay attention to anything but the road ahead of him, the cars passing by. His fingers tighten a little on the steering wheel. Martha's just as dead silent, in the seat beside him, and Jack glances up to the rear view mirror just to be sure Ianto's still there, he's being so quiet.
It's not like he hasn't seen it before with his team, time and time again. He knows the names of everyone in Torchwood's vaults, met most of them, cared deeply about a good number of them. He's lost more people than he cares to think about, working for Torchwood, in the worst possible ways. Suzie, twice, and both times right in front of him, her blood spattered on his face and coat. He should know to expect these things.
Jack clenches his jaw and stares straight ahead, at the dark road, at the headlights flashing in his eyes, and tries hard not to think. Tries not to think about Martha and Ianto's silence, Gwen's shaky breathing or the sobs Toshiko's trying to muffle. Tries not to think about Owen's body in the back of the SUV, or how long it's going to be before he loses the rest of them too.
