For other uses of this name, see Ryan (disambiguation)
Vala was unable to conceal her troubled past, even from herself, when she discovered she was capable of halting a two-man robbery in the restaurant. Ryan took her down to his precinct for a statement and found that she was unwilling to cooperate. Vala ultimately told him the truth -- but after a string of lies (and a failed attempt to sneak out the back exit) he could not bring himself to believe anything she told him.
After Ryan posted a picture of "Val" for circulation the Air Force responded with a positive identification, requesting that they be allowed to pick up Vala from the precinct. Unbeknownst to Ryan the Air Force was beaten to the location by agents from the [[Trust]. They posed as Air Force officers and took Vala only minutes before Samantha Carter and her team arrived.
Memento Mori - After a failed robbery attempt, Detective Ryan takes the amnesia-stricken waitress Val down to his precinct, and is surprised when the Air Force identifies her with words relating to national security.
