When Mellie and Samantha were taken by Olivia and the team, he set nine bombs attached to drones, each one over a metropolitan area in the air space of nine different states to get Mellie and his associate Samantha Ruland back.

When Olivia won't give him Mellie and Samantha, he set off two bombs, one in Dallas and one in Philadelphia which killed approximately seventy people in order to alert Olivia that he will keep setting off bombs until she gives back the people he wants.
