He leaves another target and waits until he sees Marina opening the bottle. When Marina finally kills the target, Poe catches her right after that. Fortunately, Freya is there to help and she hits Poe from the back. Marina is able to get out from there. But Poe shoots at Freya, leaving her seriously injured.
