She realizes her cover is blown. She stops and he pulls a gun on her. She unbuckles his seat belt and drives donuts that pin him to his seat as she swats at his gun.

Joan quickly cuts her off and puts her in her place, saying her decisions are final.Outside, Annie finds Riva crying in the foyer. Annie reassures her Joan has made many people cry on her first day.

Downstairs, Jai plants bugs. Charlie shows Annie their telescope and suggests she hang out with his dad. He says their apartment is lame because his dad never asks for a raise. It starts to rain, but it's not 7:15p.m. yet so Annie asks for more food and eats a brat in the rain. They come downstairs just as Jai makes it out a window.Annie jogs with her sister and asks about her husband Michael, who's been traveling a lot. Danielle (Anne Dudek) admits she doesn't really miss him and isn't that bothered. Annie notices a young woman with a red braid who appears to be following her.

She tells Riva that's proof he didn't hate them. Riva tells her to move on. Annie tells her normally Auggie would encourage her to follow her instincts.

He's going to the jazz festival in Istanbul. The sexy stewardess (Rebecca Mader) helps him out and makes a date for later.In Istanbul, he gets an oyster seaside and explores a mosque, remembering what it looks like. He listens to everything around him. There's a parade of jazz musicians going through the city.He says hi to an old friend setting up one of the stages. He wants to set up his recording equipment to capture the experience. He takes in a concert, standing with the crowd.Back in his hotel, he listens to the recording while the naked stewardess sits in his bed. She thinks he's a music journalist and sound engineer. As he's listening to the tape, he recognizes a voice in the crowd. It's the man who blinded him.He plays the tape again and again to be sure.Flash back to 2007 US forward Operating Base, BaghdadHe tells the stewardess about life on the base, including football in the sand.Cut to a montage of shirtless dudes, including Auggie, playing.He gets called in to see the general, who tells him they've found a high level terrorist. He's sending Auggie's men out after him.Auggie tells us about the idea of working as a unit and rising in moments of crisis.Auggie calls Annie at Langley. He wants a favor. He tells her it's something he forgot to look up. He gives her the name of a Kurd named Khani and asks her to confirm he's dead. He asks her not to tell Joan (Kari Matchett).Back at the festival, Auggie asks his friend for additional recordings from a mike set up above the stage.Annie runs a search and gets an alert telling her a file has been removed. Without knowing what she's looking for, Joan suggests Annie check the file tree -- checking the files around the one removed.Annie tells Auggie that Khani was removed from the database, but she found his sister lives in Baltimore. Annie has a day off. He asks her to go.Auggie listens to the additional recording. The stewardess joins him, fresh from the shower. He tells her he needs her to be his eyes, but can't necessarily tell her why. She's game.They walk through a street market, where he identifies sounds, including rain. It's from a rain stick. Auggie tells her the man holding it is the other voice on the tape.Back in Iraq, 67 kilometers from Tikrit, Auggie and his unit drive. His driver Billy (Jeff Pangman) plays jazz.They stop when a man on the road blocks their path with his goats. They see what looks like a dead dog in the road. Auggie tells Nassir to check it out with him. They talk to the old man and give him some money.Nassir says not to take another step. He shoots at the dead dog. Land mines explode all around it in the distance. They get back in the humvee to look for another way to Tikrit.Auggie and his stewardess tail the rainmaker in a car. He's driving a super fancy Mercedes, clearly not something he could afford on a merchant's earnings.In Baltimore, Annie goes to see Layla Khani for a manicure. She talks about her sister to get Layla to mention her sibling. She says her brother is dead.Annie leaves Auggie a message. Outside, a black SUV pulls up next to her. It'sFBI Agent Rossabi (Noam Jenkins). He tells her to get in. She continues not being CIA. He tells Annie that Layla has been informing on her brother for three years. He's been targeting American forces overseas. He's not dead.Rossabi mentions a special forces unit even went after him during the war. Annie takes note.Auggie and his stewardess follow the rainmaker until he goes into a café. Auggie puts a bug on her and sends her in to order a coffee and get the lay of the land.Back in 2007, Auggie's unit reaches Tikrit. They pull up to a building, with kids and women outside. It's the Jack of Diamond's safehouse. Before they can get out, they take fire from above. Billy is killed.They get out and fire back, but the shooters have better positions. Another member is hit in the leg.Auggie asks for cover and makes a run for the house as the shooting from above continues.Inside, Auggie creeps quietly through the house. A man fires at him from the top of stairs. Auggie shoots back and hits him. Another appears and he takes him out, too.Auggie makes it to the roof and takes out the shooter. He compares the picture he has of the terrorist and confirms it's the right guy.Back in Istanbul, Auggie listens to the rainmaker tell another man, Khani, everything is set for the cargo and his flights, eventually leading to Washington.Auggie calls Annie, who tells him about the FBI. She knows it was his special forces unit who went after him.He apologizes for everything he's put her through, but says there's something he has to do. He says good-bye, which strikes Annie as odd.Annie goes to Joan, telling her about the favor she did for Auggie and how that led to the FBI. She confirmed Auggie is going to a town with one airport and a cargo flight leaving for Lima. She's worried Auggie is up to something. She tells Joan the terrorist's name. She knows it.Back in 2007, Auggie hears a terrorist say over the walkie talkie he's setting the trap. He sees someone throw something under his humvee, where his guys are. He races downstairs and runs at them, screaming they have to get away. He's running at it as it explodes in a giant fireball. Everything goes black.Back in Istanbul, Auggie preps for his solo mission. His stewardess got the airplane specs from a stewardess friend, who says the cargo is textiles and carpets. She reads him plane measurements.Annie meets with Rossabi, asking, hypothetically, if they have enough evidence to prosecute the terrorist if he ends up on US soil. He assures her they do. They follow up all anonymous tips. She tells him to wait by the phone.Auggie says good-bye to his stewardess, making plans to meet up with her again in a month in Barbados. Her phone rings. It's a blocked call -- from Annie. The stewardess thinks it's Auggie's wife.She tells him not to do what he's about to. She tells him the FBI has enough evidence to prosecute the terrorist, shutting down his network. They're ready to reroute the plane to Washington. She tells him this is what they do. He says it's too late and hangs up.The stewardess lets him into the airport hanger. He thanks her and heads out. He climbs into the cargo hold.Inside, Auggie puts on headphones and uses a super sensitive mike to listen to the cargo hold. It's filled with giant crates, covered with tarps. He hears metal clanking together and walks down the aisle, feeling his way. He stops when he hears someone breathing. He turns up the mike and listens.We see a man sitting in one of the crates.Auggie throws something down with the sounds of gunfire. The man runs. Auggie waits in the aisle and tackles him. They grapple back and forth, with the man recognizing Auggie and getting the better of him. He throws Auggie around. He soon realizes Auggie can't see.Auggie tackles him and throws him over his shoulder, then on the ground. He punches him and holds his head down. Auggie takes out his knife and raises it over his head, but then sheaths it and settles for just punching the man again.Dulles Airport The plane lands and FBI vehicles race up. The terrorist comes rolling limply out of the cargo hold.Joan and Annie watch a live feed as the FBI collects their cargo and drives off. They watch Auggie walk out of the cargo hold.Back in 2007, we see Auggie receive the Purple Heart. He never told anyone because he wasn't happy about being injured and losing his friends to earn it. He tells Annie. She assures him he did the right thing.He tells her even though he's blind, he still remembers every detail of that picture one day after playing football. He carries it, even though he can't see. He shows it to Annie.

They want Annie to use her relationship with his widow Safia to get his last bit of intel."You want me to go to the house of a grieving widow whose husband was just murdered and ask her where the classified documents are hidden?" Annie protests.Joan says it's more complicated. Safia didn't know he was CIA. Joan thinks they should respect that. Arthur over-rules her and tells Annie to tell the widow the truth.Auggie tries to cheer Annie up with a fancy microscrope for reading a microdot. It's the size of a period but contains a page of text.Auggie advises Annie to be direct breaking the news to Safia. Annie thinks the news will shatter her.Annie arrives at his wake, bearing lilies. Safia, who is Pakistani, greets her in Urdu. The house is full of people, including a couple of Ramsay's other former students.Later, Annie and Safia take a walk. Annie's carrying an envelope.

Mark gave it to the CIA and told them to recruit her. Annie was on the agency's radar long before she applied.Joan tells Annie to stay out of things until they find Safia.Auggie finds Annie at her desk. Auggie says he was recruited because he could write unbreakable code and won his state wrestling tournaments. There's no trace of Safia yet.Auggie knows he's not supposed to tell Annie to investigate on her own, or give her the code to the annex where Safia's stuff is. But he does anyway.Annie looks it all over. She looks at a postcard from Maine and a ferry pass.Auggie gets a call from the Smithsonian. Danielle is there looking for Annie. Auggie heads over.

Mark knew his house wasn't safe.At Langley, Joan wants to know why Arthur is retasking her people to the Ramsay investigation. Arthur is frustrated they're stumped. "Don't do this," Joan says. She thinks he's worried it could have been him. He says he's not worried about himself. He's worried about Joan and their team.On the ferry home, Annie tries for a cell signal, but gets nothing. Annie sees Safia talking to someone on the boat.At Langley, Jai cross-referenced Rabina the PWA woman's contacts with Ramsay's and found Tommy, the nerd from the wake.

Safia's in the audience with Annie.After the ceremony, Annie tells Auggie she wants to tell Danielle. He tells her to go ahead. He eventually had to tell his brother.

She's watching Rosabi get his coffee when Eyal approaches her. He invites her to ride with him.

She tells him she's glad he came to her.Back in the car, Annie asks Eyal for more info. The man's code name is "Cardinal." He's not an asset, he's a Mossad agent.

He's pissed at Annie.At FBI HQ Rosabi is really angry at Joan and Jai for ruining a three year investigation. She wants to ship Eyal home, but won't say who he is. Jai says he's Mossad. He tells Rosabi pointedly that they want to be helpful, even if it may not look that way from all of them. They're putting Eyal on a plane home.Rosabi keeps Annie to debrief.When they're alone, Joan tells Jai he's undermining her personally or his promotion has affected his better judgment. She reminds him to speak to her privately next time or better yet. keep his thoughts to himself.Annie returns to Langley. Auggie tells her the FBI caught one of the shooters. The bureau will take down Eyal's man tonight. He's not a Mossad operative like Eyal said. He's a Yemeni hitman. Auggie says there's chatter that he might have been involved in the 2002 Golan Heights peace talks massacre. Annie takes note of the date and runs off.Annie finds Eyal at the bar she recommended, drinking Sazerac. He had been placed on a commercial flight wjere the Federal Air Marshal was a friendly former Mossad agent who let him go.Annie calls Eyal out on his mission. He confesses.

He questions why she cares so much and whispers something to her as he walks away.Annie joining him in his room, then in his bed.But she stops him by zip-tying him to the bed. She assures him she'll let him go after the FBI gets the hitter. Eyal's not angry, but impressed by her technique.She borrows Eyal's phone and calls Auggie. Everyone's looking for Eyal and Cardinal wasn't where the FBI went to find him. Annie tells Auggie she has Eyal and what hotel they're at. She's startled when she sees "Cardinal" and two accomplices walking in. She tells Auggie.Up in his room, Eyal works to get free from the ziptie. She realizes Eyal knew they were coming, which is why he stayed. Auggie tells her Jai has a team in the field and not to handle it alone.Annie runs up the hotel stairwell. She sees Cardinal and his men get out on Eyal's floor and prepare their guns fitted with suppressors. Auggie tells Jai to hurry. He and his men enter the lobby."Cardinal" and his men shoot their way into Eyal's room. Annie watches from the stairway and runs to the room.

Fourth of July in DC
Annie (Piper Perabo) makes Fourth of July cupcakes for the office. Danielle (Anne Dudek) tastes one and they're terrible. Luckily, she made back-up cupcakes for Annie to take in. She reminds her to take an umbrella.
Auggie (Christopher Gorham) is back from Eritrea. Everyone is in full patriotic mode. Annie finds a note on her desk to meet at a diner at 10 a.m. Alone.
She goes there. Jai (Sendhil Ramamurthy) joins her. He tells her he has an opportunity for her. He has something to tell her about Langley and the system is b.s., but he doesn't want to talk there. He's acting nervous and stressed. Annie agrees to go with him.He heads out to his car. Annie turns around to get her umbrella.
She's leaning over to get it when outside in the parking lot, Jai turns the ignition in his car. It blows to smithereens. The windows of the diner are blown out. Annie is knocked to the ground and bloodied. There's no way Jai survived.
Back at Langley, everyone reels from Jai's death. The explosion is being spun as an auto recall. Arthur (Peter Gallagher) wants Auggie to take over Jai's Office of Special Projects. He wants Auggie to figure out what got Jai killed and report to him directly. He knows it will be hard to take over Jai's team, but he tells Auggie to deal with it.
In the morning, Annie checks her car for finger prints and looks underneath it before warily getting in and starting the ignition. She arrives at work, which is a blur of activity.
Joan (Kari Matchett) tells her she's being reassigned. "I'm sure it seems capricious, but around here movement is progress," Joan tells her.
Annie is summoned to Polygraph.
The questioner is stuck on the fact she conveniently forgot her umbrella. Finally, on the third time around, Annie has had enough when she thinks he's insinuating she killed her friend. She rips the sensors off and demands of the one-way mirror why she's being transferred. She's about to storm out when Lena Smith (Sarah Clarke) comes in.
"I'm your new boss, you've had a rough couple of days. Let's go get a drink," she says.
Cut to Annie and Lena at the bar. She's impressed with Annie's track record and says she was being under-utilized.
She knows how Annie is feeling, she was in the Nairobi embassy bombing in 1998. She promises to treat Annie as an equal.
"One of Langley's double standards that does not exist in my division is a false hierarchy," she says. She also cites the fact male operatives are encouraged to sleep with assets for intel, but females aren't, they get too "emotional."
She wants Annie to do security clearance on a person of interest named Simon Fisher. She gives her a passcode.
"I know you've only known the DPD but there's other ways of doing things. You'll see," Lena says.
At home, Annie gives Danielle her umbrella back and thanks her, not mentioning it saved her life.
The next day, Annie kickboxes with Auggie. He knows Lena was the youngest person ever to win the Intelligence Cross and they built an entire division around her.She only does "big wins."
She asks Auggie about his investigation and he reassures her Jai's death is not her fault.
Annie runs into Joan in the elevator. She reminds Annie to trust her instincts.
Annie goes to her new floor and finds it's set up like a mobile command with no cubicles, just a bunch of people bustling or staring intently at computer screens. Annie doesn't have a desk. Lena believes operatives should be out in the field.She tells Annie not to discuss what they do with her former coworkers.
Annie gives her report on Simon Fuller, a venture capitalist. It boils down to: his mother was a spy for the KGB. Lena says his kill patterns indicate he trained with the Russian Navy SEALS. He's highly dangerous. Annie also found hidden purchases of land in Western Africa.
Russia has been buying up land in poor countries all over the world. She asks Annie what her next move is. Annie wants to meet him.
Cut to Annie in Marrakesh.She's driving through town when she slams on the brakes and gets Simon to rear end her. She acts flustered and overwhelmed. He takes charge.
Over drinks, while Simon is distracted talking to German tourists, Annie checks his bag. He tells her about traveling the world with his mother as a child. They compare passports to see who's been more places. She asks him about the valley where she knows he bought land then says that's where she was heading before they crashed. He offers to take her tomorrow.
Joan drops in on Arthur, ticked he took Auggie. He assures her she can handle it.
Annie calls Lena, who tells her she doesn't have to worry about checking in. She wants to run Simon's passport, even though it's likely fake. She also thought the German tourists felt off. She wants a sweep drive to get the contents of Simon's tablet.
Auggie asks his new team for case files, but learns there isn't much paperwork . About 50 active operations were in play.
Annie goes to Lena's contact to get the sweep drive. She's walking through the market when the German tourists start following her with guns. She runs to lose them.
Auggie calls and can tell something is wrong. He offers to help, but she says she's fine.
She calls Lena and tells her about being chased. Lena knows protocol but asks what Annie wants to do.
She wants to play it out. Lena encourages her to go for it.
Annie gets off the phone and turns around to find Simon waiting for her. She gets in his car, where he makes no attempt to hide the gun in his glove compartment.
Out on the road, Simon and Annie flirt over eating dates.
Back at Langley, Joan visits Auggie packing up his office. He's looking for the number of a lawyer because Jai was a complicated person. He wants to make sure he goes into things with his eyes wide open.
Annie notices Simon misses their turn. He tells her he's taking her to an oasis nobody knows about. He takes her to a picnic, then tells her he owns 40,000 acres and intends to turn it into a preserve.
She goes to the car for water. She notices the gun isn't in the glove compartment. She takes out her sweep drive and puts it on Simon's tablet.
He runs back to the car saying they have to go. There's a giant sandstorm coming.
They race across the desert road in front of a wall of sand, but he stops when they can't outrun it. Annie asks for his scarf and wraps it around her head. She goes to the back of the car and puts the scarves in the exhaust.
She comes back, announcing the sand would clog the exhaust. He knows that, but asks how she does. "Summers in Tuscon," she answers quickly.
He's impressed. He wipes the sand off her gently, then kisses her.
Later, they drive back into town and to his hotel room. She watches as he punches a code into the hotel safe and puts his tablet in. He goes to take a shower. She turns on the TV for noise.
She takes the sweep drive out again and puts it on the safe to scan. It finishes. She's about to leave when she sees the passports of the German tourists on the table. She's holding on to them trying to decide what to do when Simon comes out of the shower and asks if she's leaving or cares to join him.
She thinks, then decides to stay. As they have sex in the shower, the TV news says two German tourists were found dead.
Back at Langley, Auggie hears the report and tells someone to look into it.Someone brings him coded files. One box is marked with a square with a line coming out of the top.Cut back to naked Simon in the shower with Annie. He has the mark tattooed on his shoulder.

Port of Barcelona, Spain:
A Canadian couple gets off a cruise liner but run when they see security types waiting for them. They are cornered.
At Langley, an anonymous star is chiseled into the wall of the fallen for Jai.
Annie (Piper Perabo) returns to her new office with the contents of Simon Fischer's tablet on her sweep drive. She thinks the whole thing came about too easily. Simon (Richard Coyle) might have intentionally left the German passports out in the open.
Lena (Sarah Clarke) asks non-judgmentally if Annie spent the night with Simon. Annie tells her she did. Lena just wants to make sure Annie isn't attached to anyone that would care.
They're both summoned to the DCS's office where Arthur (Peter Gallagher), Joan (Kari Matchett) and Auggie (Christopher Gorham) are waiting. Auggie and Annie wait outside at Arthur's direction.
Inside, Joan explains this morning in Barcelona, Spanish intelligence detained a Canadian couple who came to purchase a computer virus from "Red Rover," a hacker whom they've been tracking for three years. The Canadians were fronts for the Chinese.
Joan wants to send a couple in to pose as them and get the virus so they can reverse engineer it in order to inoculate any America computer systems which might be targeted maliciously. Annie and Auggie were investigating Red Rover.
Lena doesn't feel like sharing Annie. Joan says it'll take 36 hours. Lena says Annie's enthusiastic but "she's picked up some bad habits along the way."
Lena lets her go. Annie and Auggie will be posing as a couple.
Back home, Annie unpacks and repacks. Danielle (Anne Dudek) knows Jai died yesterday but thinks it was in a rock climbing accident. She starts pestering Annie for details. "It was a rock climbing accident... wasn't it?" Annie stays mum.
Annie meets Auggie at the airport. She can't figure out what she's doing there. Auggie thinks Joan's fiefdom is under attack. She's sending a message by pulling them back.
Auggie asks about working with Lena. Annie thinks she's a lot more approachable than Joan. Auggie busts her for lying about her last mission. He knows she was in Marrakesh.
At Langley, Joan thanks Lena but Lena thinks Joan's gloating. "You've always been so remote, it's hard to read you sometimes," Lena says.
"Oh, I think you read me just fine," Joan says.
Lena doesn't get how Joan runs her department, telling Joan she thinks it's worth hurting the big picture to chalk up a win. Lena reminds her they're not young girls in Nairobi anymore. It diminishes both of them when she runs to a man, her husband Arthur in this case, to solve their problems.
In Barcelona, Annie and Auggie wait at a café for their meeting. Auggie kisses her hand to sell the façade. A waitress gives them a note from some guy changing the meeting spot.
They head in that direction and answer the nearby ringing phone. They're directed to throw money in a passing motorcycle sidecar. Despite their reservations, they do. Red Rover hangs up. They think they've been played, but the digitally disguised voice calls back and directs them to look under the phone. Their package is there.
Back at the safe house, Auggie runs diagnostics on the virus. He's impressed.
At Langley, Arthur goes to Joan. He thinks the Chinese know what they're up to. Three MSS operatives were just spotted in Spain.
Arthur thinks Joan was being passive-aggressive asking for Auggie.
She wants to know how he got the photos of the operative so fast. She busts him for micromanaging the op.
Auggie tells Annie he's going to ask Parker to marry him, as soon as possible. He was going to go back to Eritrea but the mission came up. He's had the ring in his pocket for four days.
They've only been dating three or four months and she doesn't know what he does yet.
Annie asks if maybe it's a reaction to what happened to Jai. He doesn't care if it is.
Joan calls Annie to tell her the Canadians who were in separate custody have just been found murdered. Annie looks out the window and sees men gathering outside. They head for the elevator as one of the men walks by. They take a different elevator, but he stops it from closing and gets on.
He starts to pull a gun and Annie gives Auggie directions on where to fight, knocking the man out. They head for the fire escape. Auggie makes Annie go ahead and check each floor. A man runs out behind Auggie and slams into him. He drops the case with the virus in it. Annie sees the case below and Auggie being pummeled several floors above and goes to help him. Another grabs the case and runs off. Auggie's attacker leaves.
Auggie is OK, but mad at himself for dropping the case.
They check in with Joan and Auggie tells her as much as he can about the virus. He wants to stop it by finding Red Rover and turning him.
Joan doesn't like their chances and tells them it's her fault for sending them in with bad intel and not enough support. She tells them to come home.
Arthur meets with Henry Wilcox (Gregory Itzin), who's in good spirits. "They say the food is the worst thing about prison -- it's the golf," he says.
Arthur offers his condolences for Jai and tells him the memorial service was dignified.
Arthur tries to convince Henry to cooperate with the task force. Henry's bitter he wasn't allowed to go to Jai's funeral. Arthur suggests some people think he was involved in Jai's death. Henry isn't feeling cooperative.
In Barcelona, Auggie is angry Annie is prepared to follow Joan's orders and go home. He thinks Joan is his only champion. He doesn't want to disappoint her.
Lena calls Annie, telling her Simon is in Munich and suggesting she stop by. They got nothing from the sweep drive, which Lena suggests Annie got it "too easily." She winces over the idea she got nothing for sleeping with him.
Lena suggests if Annie gets intimate enough with him, he'll tell her everything.
Annie doesn't commit to going, saying she has to wrap something up. When she gets off the phone, she realizes Auggie is gone.
Annie goes back to the café to talk to the waitress and finds Auggie was just there. Annie gets her name and goes to her apartment. Auggie is waiting outside.
Annie was being overly cautious because she already lost one friend this week. Auggie chalks it up to their first "married" fight.
The waitress returns, but doesn't want to talk to them. She's a Lisbeth Salander-type. She pulls a taser, so Annie politely shows her her gun, saying they just want to talk. She leads them in to a warehouse apartment with a ton of computers set up inside.
She's "Red Rover."
Paul with NSA is leading the Task Force looking into Jai's death. He drops by Joan's office to tell her in the weeks before Jai's death, Arthur paid to have Jai followed.
Back in Spain, Pilar (Ana Claudia Talancón) tests Auggie's blindness by changing in front of him. Auggie tells her she's an extremely talented programmer and compliments her exchange.
He urges her to join them. She laughs in his face.
Annie offers to double what they paid her before, she immediately counters: "Triple!" Annie agrees.
She closes up shop, but sees men outside on her surveillance. She leads them out the back .
They run, but get separated from Pilar. Auggie pulls Annie out of the way of a moving car. When it turns around and doubles back, she fires on it.
Pilar speeds around in her motorcycle with a side car and picks them up.
Back in the US, Joan meets them at the airport, prepared to yell. They introduce Red Rover.
Annie likes Auggie always expects the best of people.
He asks her to point him toward a ticket counter. He runs his ring by Annie -- it's a pearl because he couldn't go along with the blood diamond trade. Annie tells him if Parker doesn't like it, she's not the right girl.
Off he goes. Annie tries not to be too upset. She contemplates the Departures screens and heads for Munich.
She gets dolled up and knocks on Simon Fischer's door.
3The Last Thing You Should Do
24 Jul 2012Description ▼
Previously on 'Covert Affairs': Annie was reassigned and introduced to her new boss, Lena Smith. Auggie met Parker, who was headed off the to the Peace Corps, and Auggie prepared to track her down so he could propose.
'The Last Thing You Should Do': Annie is relaxing in a bath when Danielle interrupts her and tells her Michael is in town and wants a divorce. He didn't say that, but she knows and is worried about her girls.
Auggie and Parker are out on a yacht enjoying "a week in paradise" as Auggie tags along with the Peace Corps group. Auggie and Parker make out on the beach and he gets a moment to propose. She's stunned and happily says yes, telling him they're going to have three kids. They kiss a bit more but are interrupted when one of Parker's friends calls for help on the yacht. Debbie, a woman on the boat, fell and hit her head. They're going to head back and the other man on the yacht, Wade, says he already put in a distress call. Auggie is worried, saying distress calls in this part of the world are not usually a good idea. Sure enough, a boat with three armed men soon approaches pirates.
The pirates circle and Auggie tries to calm everyone while the pirates board the yacht. While the pirates scour the boat, Auggie quietly asks for a phone and tries to covertly slip the ring off Parker's finger. One of the pirates catches him and takes the ring, while Auggie tells the man in his native language that he means no harm. Auggie, meanwhile, is dialing something on the phone behind his back. The pirate also sees the phone, which he takes and drops into the water. We see Annie answer her phone, with Parker's name on the caller ID, but there's no one on the line. The whole group is now on the pirates' boat headed toward shore.
Lena catches Annie looking at maps of the Red Sea and Annie goes on to tell her about the suspicious phone call. Annie reports that Auggie and his group are off the coast of northern Sudan, and her check on Wade Moore the other man on the boat and his father is a defense industry contractor who just made a $200,000 transfer to Topaz Security, and KNR is Topaz's speciality. Lena understands that Auggie is a good friend of Annie's and they need to make a phone call.
Back on land, Auggie calms Wade as they take his injured girlfriend Debbie away in a truck to get her medical attention. A woman with an American accent shows up and talks to the pirates, then comes over and explains to Auggie, Wade and Parker that their friend is free to go. She'll get medical aid, then a trip home. "She can get a parade, a book deal, go on 'Dateline' they love pirate stories," she says. She assures them that she and her cohorts aren't about hurting people and it's purely a business transaction. Auggie says she's American, and the woman recognizes that Auggie is blind and says, "Blind man walks down a dock in Africa there's a joke in there somewhere." She tells them to call her Annalysse. She'll negotiate on behalf of the pirates and their future depends on the actions of their loved ones.
Arthur talks to Joan and is upset that Auggie was out there in the first place. Joan lays out the plan for taking care of it, and Arthur says the ransom money is "being handled." She asks who's on point.
Joan next goes to Lena and asks in front of Annie if they can talk privately. Joan warns Lena that if she's thinking about boxing her out "again" she isn't going to let it happen. Lena assures her this isn't happening. They go back out of the office and Lena tells Joan to pull up a chair. She then asks Annie to loop Joan in on where things stand. Annie awkwardly hands over the file.
Auggie, Parker and Wade are taken to an abandoned house. Auggie announces to the pirates that Wade and Parker are engaged and since Wade's family is the pirates' money source so they should not be separated. Annalysse comes in and tells the group she needs to assess their value, and Wade assures her his family will pay. Annalysse looks over Auggie and sees his military tattoo through the back of his shirt. She says she has a phone call to make and leaves.
Lena, Joan and Annie go through theories and Lena goes to piggyback on French satellites for eyes over Sudan which Joan calls "bending the rules." Lena goes through the estimates of what the pirates will value each hostage, with Parker coming in at $1.1 million, Wade at $1.5 million and Auggie "nominal." But Annie reminds her that Auggie is ex-special forces, which increases his value. Joan suggests they acknowledge Auggie's ex-special forces status, but Lena disagrees and Annie takes her side.
Lena gets on the phone with Annalysse to negotiate, and Annalysse makes a reference to what Lena used to drink. Lena puts her on hold and tells Joan and Annie that she knows Annalysse, a former U.S. oil executive who can get emotional and a couple of her hostages of died recently. Lena offers $2 million for all three hostages and Annalysse tells her she's a far cry from $8 million. Annalysse says she knows one of the is special forces and could yield a lot of money from other interests. Annalysse says she's prepared to offer a package deal, but since Lena wasn't up front with her about Auggie's special forces background, she's now asking for $10 million. Lena says they're standing at $2 million and hangs up, then she tells Joan and Annie it's "a little like buying a car."
Wade and a pirate tussle when the pirate tries to take Parker away. Auggie calms the situation and realizes the man is just taking each of them to the bathroom. He ends up taking Wade first and Auggie gets a moment to reveal to Parker that he's CIA. She wonders when he was going to tell her. He says the next time she was in D.C. He tells her he understands it's hard. She wonders who she's marrying and Auggie apologizes for having compromised her trust. She says she's sorry, too. Auggie holds out his hand but she doesn't take it.
Wade comes back into the room while Auggie and Parker sit in silence. Parker goes away and Wade confides in Auggie that he's spent years trying to prove himself to his father. Wade hands Auggie the ring he'd just given Parker. He says he found it on the ground and it might have fallen out of the pirate's pocket.
Back at headquarters, Joan is worried things are too quiet. Annie gets a phone call from Simon asking about the phone charger she took from him in Munich. She confesses she took it and he wants it back. He offers to fly her to Paris so she can return it. She declines. Annie comes back into the main room and asks Annie, "Was that ?" And Annie says yes. Joan seems a bit uncomfortable with this new inside communication going on between Annie and Lena.
In Africa, we see some armed men come toward the house where Auggie and the others are behind held, and they try to force their way in with guns and bombs. Auggie hears the explosions but we quickly find out, back at the CIA, that the armed rescue attempt hit the wrong house. Annalysse calls and says it was a big mistake, the price is now $15 million and she'll now lose a hostage. Lena knows it was Angus Moore, Wade's dad, who sent the rescue team. Joan blames Lena for losing control and taking risks with her operatives, saying nothing's changes. We get into some history here, where Lena tells Joan that whatever she thinks happened in Nairobi, the last place they worked together, didn't. Joan says Lena blew her asset, someone died and Lena left town. Lena insists that asset wasn't who he said he was and got himself killed.
In Africa, the pirates take Auggie, Parker and Wade away, load them into a truck and drive them away. Parker asks why they're being moved and Auggie says it means they need to escape.
Parker says she's "frozen" and can't go through with an escape, but Auggie assures her they'll be OK if she trusts him.
Back at the CIA, Annie says they should move forces into a nearby city. Lena is dubious about moving in on an entire city. Joan agrees they can't put more people at risk until they know where Auggie is. Annie says she knows Auggie will find a way to escape. They tell Annie it's her call because she knows Auggie best. "Send the team," Annie says.
In Africa, the truck hits a roadblock and Auggie says it's time to make a run. The second they see daylight, they go. Wade and Auggie immediately tackle the two pirates and knock them out. Wade grabs a gun and fires straight into the air before they run into the alleys of the town.
Auggie calls Annie and tells her they need a ride. She says they'll be there in 20 minutes. Auggie says they need to find a roof. Meanwhile, the pirates are still chasing them. They get to a roof but there are towers on it. Annie can see this, too, as they now can see Auggie and the group on satellite cameras. Auggie says they need to jump to another roof, which terrifies Parker.
Wade makes the jump first, then Auggie and Parker prepare to do it together. They count off their steps and make the leap. They land as Annie tensely watches them on the screen. A military helicopter arrives.
Lena tells Annie she did "good work." Annie turns to thank Joan, but Joan is already well down the hallway. Later, Lena and Annie toast with some whiskey and Lena tells Annie they're going to accomplish a lot of good things together. Lena tells Annie that if she wants to move up in the agency she needs a "story biography." She tells her that Joan was a chapter, and that she, Lena, will be another chapter. Annie says nothing, but Lena tells Annie she's impressed that Simon's calling on her knock line. Annie says she took Simon's cell phone charger and is having S&T mine the data. Lena laughs and says Annie is adding to her story already.
At an air base, Auggie proposes again and tells Parker he should have trusted her. She accepts the proposal again and they hug. Auggie says he told her his only secret. He promises her they're going to be happy and they hug.
Annie gets home and finds Danielle drinking wine. She says she's good and that she and Michael decided to give it another shot. Danielle says she realized that chapter of her life isn't over yet, and she doesn't want it to be. She also says they're moving to California because Michael got a job in the Bay Area. Annie says it's amazing but she's going to miss Danielle.

Annie (Piper Perabo) and Simon (Richard Coyle) wander romantically around Paris, then return to the hotel and get in bed. Annie asks casually about his business in Edinburgh, but he says its boring. He plugs his phone into the returned charger.
RDI Industries, Reston, VA:
A cat burglar sneaks into a heavily secured lab, through lasers and key pads. He opens several metal boxes and removes the contents. His watch counts down and as it hits zero, the alarms go off. He leaves the vault as the door closes, sealing the guards inside. He easily knocks over another who tries to stop him.
Annie comes to work to find Lena arguing with someone on the phone. It's about the intel she got from the bugged charger. Simon contacted Mike O'Leary (usually referred to as "Mike O"), a cat burglar in DC.
Two days ago, RDI reported a burglary. The company makes microchips for centrifuges and other defense-contracting high-tech providers. Every agency in DC wants on the case.
Annie asks for permission to reach out to another agency. Lena (Sarah Clarke) says she's done enough. Annie calls Agent Vincent Rosabi (Noam Jenkins) at the FBI anyway.
She meets with him and wants info on the break-in, saying the agency can provide valuable intel.
Annie reports to Lena that she gave Mike O's name to the FBI. Lena worries it might lead the FBI to Simon. Annie thinks its fine because he's in Edinburgh.
Auggie (Christopher Gorham) gets ready for work and Parker asks what he's working on. He gently tells her he can either ignore the question or lie to her and assures her they'll get through it.
At work, Annie tells Auggie about Danielle (Anne Dudek) moving to California. He knows how hard it must be on Annie and suggests drinks tomorrow with Parker.
Joan (Kari Matchett) goes through her polygraph about Jai, including whether he got along with Arthur. Or if Arthur told her Jai was after her job, which he did.
At home, Annie helps oversee packing at Danielle's. She steps outside to order pizza. Simon calls. He's in DC outside the Smithsonian.
Annie's game plans with Lena, who wants her to find out when Simon is making the exchange with Mike O., but not let Simon cross paths with any other agency.
Annie comes down the stairs at the Smithsonian to meet Simon. He was hoping to stay with her. She suggests they see the sights first as she surreptitiously texts Lena.
Lena puts her team on creating a vetted apartment with personal photos. Lena texts Annie the address. On the way there, Annie notices they're being followed and loses whoever it is by running a red light.
At the apartment, Annie texts for info on the keys and gets the name "Taj." At the front desk, he greets her by name and gives her her mail.
Danielle calls Annie, who's irritated Annie left without saying good-bye. She hears Simon in the background and thinks Annie blew her off for a guy. He asks where the wine opener is. Annie tells him the wrong drawer.
Simon asks who she was talking to. She says she feels like she's letting a friend down. She feels like she misrepresented herself because its easy to pretend away from home. He kisses her and says he has a pretty good idea who she is.
Auggie comes home late and finds Parker is still up. He walks into her suitcase. She tells him she can't marry him. She's not sure what their relationship is based on since they met in grief and she doesn't feel like she knows him. He begs her to stay the night so they can work it out like adults.
Annie wakes up in the middle of the night and goes through Simon's things. He finds her with her hands in his suit pocket.
She claims she's a neat freak and wants to hang his suits up.
In the morning, Auggie wakes up in bed with Parker. She's wearing her engagement ring, but there's a honk outside, followed by another.
He suggests he take the day off work, but realizes it's a cab honking. Parker gives him his ring back and gets up to leave. He pleads with her, telling her couples have arguments and work things out, they don't quit. She leaves. Auggie is distraught.
Lying in bed, Annie traces Simon's tattoo. She recognizes it as a constellation. He says no one's ever figured it out before. He says it was based on the Keats poem "Bright Star." He asks about going to breakfast.
At breakfast, Simon steps outside to take a call and Annie sees Agent Rosabi. He joins her. He denies the car trailing her was FBI, but says Mike O. checked out. He was supposed to meet a buyer in Scotland but bailed because he thought the TSA was on to him. Rosabi knows the European buyer is coming here, but they don't know who it is. They heard the buyer was meeting Mike today at 1 p.m. Rosabi invites her.
Simon comes back in. Annie is forced to introduce them, saying they're in the same field. Rosabi realizes Simon is foreign.
After Rosabi leaves, Simon tells Annie he has a meeting at 1p.m
Back at her place, with Simon in the shower, Annie checks in with Lena. They don't want him to get busted at the meet because they'll lose their "in" into his world. Lena tells Annie to seduce him or break a wrist, but keep him from the meet.
Annie tells Simon she doesn't think he should go. She feels like he's been evaluating her the whole time he's been there and not opening up.
"We really can't talk about this later?" he asks.
"Not if you walk out the door," she says.
"I'm sorry then," Simon says as he leaves.
Auggie calls Annie from the bar, wanting her to join him now. She tells him she can't right now. He's upset and hangs up on her.
Annie meets Rosabi at the meet and tells him the buyer is a CIA asset. She asks him to stand down, but he points out other agencies are there, too. He can't call them off. She tells him she's invested more than ever before with this asset and she doesn't want it to be for nothing.
Rosabi tells her the deal is for substrates, used to make microchips.
They watch as Mike O. arrives. Annie sees a man in a suit walk past him and make the swap. Her heart sinks as the agencies go after him. She sees it's not Simon.
Mike O. takes off running. Annie chases after him. She follows him into a topiary maze and tackles him through a hedge.
Rosabi finds her. He's pissed because the substrates weren't in the briefcase. Rosabi was also expecting Simon. He tells her she burned a bridge today, but she doesn't know what happened.
Meanwhile, Simon makes the exchange with the security guard from RDI who wasn't knocked over when Mike was escaping.
At the bar, a girl starts talking to Auggie and her boyfriend gets jealous. He gives Auggie some friendly advice to be more careful who he talks to. He eggs Auggie on until finally Auggie smacks him over the head with a bottle.
Back at Langley, Lena points out to Annie the mission is over, her cover is blown. She ran the plates on the car tailing them. They weren't government . . . which leaves Simon.
Annie got played.
Lena tells Annie she's being sent back to work with Joan in the DPD. Someone else will continue the operation on Simon.
Annie brings her stuff back to Joan's department in a cardboard box. Her voice mail to Auggie plays over Auggie being put in the back of a police car.
Annie goes home and finds it empty.
Annie thinks she's gone, but Danielle comes in. Her flight was delayed. She's all packed, but there's ice cream left. The spoons are packed, so they share a spatula.
"We don't have to say it, do we?" Annie asks.
"I don't want this to be the end," Danielle tells her.
Later, Annie walks down the street at night. Simon pulls up next to her.
"I like you, quite a bit more than you might believe. I'm tired of playing games, hoping you feel the same way," he says.
Annie thinks about it, then gets in his car.
5This Is Not America
14 Aug 2012Description ▼
Auggie (Christopher Gorham) sobers up in jail. Arthur (Peter Gallagher) paid his bail, even though Auggie didn't call. He's not sympathetic to Auggie getting dumped. He takes the special investigation away from Auggie and sends him back to DPD.
At Langley, Annie (Piper Perabo) tells Lena (Sarah Clarke) they need to talk. She thinks she has a way in with Simon. Lena doesn't want to get involved in a turf war with Joan (Kari Matchett).
"I have privileged access to a top FSB operative, are you telling me I should walk away because someone decided to move my desk down the hall?" Annie shouts.
"Have you developed feelings for this guy? Because you're fighting very hard with this," Lena says.She tells Annie again it's over.
Annie is happy to see Auggie back in his office. She notices his busted up knuckles. He doesn't want to talk about it.
Joan has a mission for Annie. Operatives in the field have discovered a piece of an Iranian missile copied from American designs.
Annie butts in to Joan summarizing the situation, assuming Israel is involved.
Annie's supposed to help survielle the architect of the technology, an American scientist named Isaac Reiss. Saul Berkowitz with Mossad will be running point. Joan mentions Annie's old flirt buddy Eyal (Oded Fehr) is out of the country.
Annie steps off the plane in Israel and finds Eyal waiting. Saul Berkowitz got sick."The ten beers I bought him last night didn't help," he says.
This is his chance to show her everything is better in Israel.
Over dinner, Annie is worried they're not following the right guy because their intel is more than two days old.
Reiss has been taking long walks around the city during the daytime heat. Mossad thinks he's doing dead drops.
Eyal flirts heavily, but can tell Annie is conflicted about taking him up to her room. He thinks there's a man in her life. She assures him there isn't.He thinks she wants to talk about something. She doesn't trust him yet.
Back in DC, Auggie reports to Joan's office, where she tells him he's being sent to mandated therapy. He thinks if he shows weakness, he'll be gone.
Annie and Eyal meet with Dr. Isaac Reiss to offer him a fake job to see how he reacts. Annie wants to build a more complex profile, but Eyal urges her not to over-think it.While he's away, teams bug his office.
Eyal tells Reiss they're building the next Concord and they want him to design it. They tell him he'd have to leave immediately. Reiss hesitates.
Eyal pushes, saying they need his answer now. Isaac freezes. Annie tells him to think it over.
Annie tries to talk to him casually, getting him to talk about the woman he's dating. Eyal continues to push.
When the meeting ends, Eyal tells her Isaac was lying. They've been following him and he's not dating anyone.
Back in his room, Annie and Eyal watch Isaac from across the street. Annie doesn't see why he'd lie about having a girlfriend and doesn't think he's a villain. Eyal accuses her of being too emotionally close.
In therapy in DC, Auggie tells the shrink he doesn't need therapy. She urges him to talk to deal with anger to avoid another incident, but says she'll sign off on his form if he wants her to. She's surprised when he takes her up on it and walks out.
In Israel, Isaac makes a call, telling someone he has exciting news that could change "everything for us."Eyal thinks it's code. Annie tells him to quit looking for conspiracies. He called a woman with an unlisted number with no outgoing message. Surveillance has never seen her. She's convinced him to keep their relationship secret at work.
Annie realizes he's dating a spy. He probably doesn't even know she's stealing the technology.
Annie wants to read Isaac in and make him an asset. She brushes off Eyal's objections. He tells her it's imperative she follow his lead. He confesses Langley wants him to run a profile on her in the field."My agency's investigating me?" she asks.
He says they're just worried about her. It's common practice. She realizes he thinks they're right to be concerned. He knows about Jai being killed and assures her it's OK to feel whatever she's feeling.
He says he doesn't know who ordered the assessment.
Annie picks up the phone and has a non-informative conversation with Joan, but avoids confronting her.
When she gets off the phone, Isaac calls. He asks her to meet alone at 4 p.m.
Arthur meets with his ex-wife Gina (Rena Sofer), who informs him he's on the short list to be the new ambassador to China. It was something they wanted to do together. She says that doesn't matter now.
Annie meets with Isaac, who explains leaving his company after all they've done for him is scary. He just has to convince his girlfriend taking the new job is a good idea. Annie asks about her. Isaac explains she doesn't like him talking about her to people he works with. Annie points out they don't work together yet.He talks. Her name is Lana. She's a scientist, too. He shows Annie a picture of her.
Shots ring out. Annie takes off after the shooter with Eyal behind her. He dodges traffic and runs through town into a parking garage. He fires at her, then jumps off the second story. Annie climbs over to follow as Eyal shouts at her to stop.
She jumps down and loses her gun. The gunman grabs it and has her dead to rights -- but suddenly he's plowed over by a passing car.
Annie gives the shooter's phone to Eyal. She thinks he's going to tell Langley she's a loose cannon and she'll be done. "I know this life is so easy for you, but it isn't for me!" she says.
He takes her to a kids' soccer game and points out his young son, whom he only gets to see from afar. "I struggle with this life, same as you. How strange it is, the cost. But you're working towards making this world a better place and you're not alone," he tells her.
"It doesn't always feel that way," she says. He asks again what's bothering her. He gets a text that they found Isaac.
Auggie pounds away on a heavy bag, trying to work out his anger. Then he goes back to therapy, but says it shouldn't be taken as a sign of growth.
Arthur gives Joan the good news about the possible ambassador post. He put a word in with the East Asia desk and she could run the Bejing station. She's annoyed he talked to them before her. She doesn't want to go back in the field. He says he'll need his wife on his arm."Then you married the wrong kind of wife," she says.
Back in Israel, Annie tells Eyal the name Simon Fischer. They find Isaac. He just figured out his girlfriend was a spy. Annie says he can help them bring her in. He agrees.
Isaac waits as agents wire his room. Annie tries to keep him focused. They just need him to call her and ask to meet.
Isaac tells Lana about getting shot at. She says she'll come over in an hour. He goes on, asking if she'd move back to the US with him. Annie and Eyal are trying to get him to wrap it up when Isaac looks down and sees her on the street below. She runs. Everybody chases.
She hides behind a pillar and gets the jump on Eyal. She pulls a knife and pins him. Annie flies out and decks her. They take her in.
Back at the airport, Eyal tells Annie he gave her a good review. And he has a file for her, even though Mossad is not in the business of sharing information.
Annie thanks him and tells him she hopes they meet again under happier circumstances.She turns to leave. He stops her and tells her to be careful. He looks concerned.
Back home, Annie closes her blinds and pulls out the file. It's Mossad's file on Simon Fischer, including photos of her with him. She calls Simon and asks to see him.

Sana'a, Yemen:Office of the Prime Minister
The Prime Minister plays chess with his chief of staff on his balcony when suddenly he grips at his chest and goes rigid.
Langley, Virginia:Joan (Kari Matchett) briefs the troops. The PM is being allowed into the country only for surgery following his heart attack. The CIA is staying out of it. Annie (Piper Perabo) guesses the State Department is trading the medical access for lower gas prices. In front of everyone, Annie says she wants to try to turn the PM's chief of staff, Sayid al Moukri.
He was a grad student at Oxford.Tthere was an unsigned editorial condemning the Cole bombing attack, Annie thinks he wrote it. She claims he's ambitious and being under-utilized at home and wants a way to contribute.
Joan rejects the plan as too risky.
Later, Annie drops by Joan's office to make her pitch again, saying she has a lot in common with him. Joan finally says OK, telling Annie not to get caught and to bail at the first sign of trouble. She'll have three hours during the surgery.
Auggie (Christopher Gorham) intercepts Annie. She asks about Parker and his bar fight. Annie thinks Joan was behind the cogent profile Eyal was ordered to do. Auggie doesn't think it's the worst idea.
He tells Annie what she's trying for is a huge gamble. It's OK to bail.
Sayid and the PM arrive at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, heavily guarded by the State Department. The surgery starts, along with Annie's three hour countdown.
She grabs a magazine and sits down in the waiting room. When Sayid goes for a cigarette, Annie twirls her lighter and offers to show him a secret place where it's OK to smoke. She takes him to the roof. She greets him by name. He immediately knows she's CIA.
She quotes his editorial. He denies writing it. She tries to convince him to just talk, saying she's not part of a government conspiracy. She fought hard to be able to come personally to talk to him.
He thinks there can be no dialogue given that she knows everything about him. He knows nothing about her. She gives her name.
He tells her not to approach him again and leaves.
This is the moment she's supposed to go home. Instead, Annie goes downstairs and finds State Department people closing in on her.
She makes it through a door and thinks she's safe, but runs smack into Steve Barr with the State Department. He calls Arthur (Peter Gallagher) and Joan while he detains Annie. Arthur apologizes while Joan defends. Arthur agrees to send Annie home.
State personnel walk Annie out of the hospital. She calls Auggie to play "what if," asking hypothetically what she should do. He suggests she's barred from the hospital. She uses the time she has left to get Sayid out of the building to talk.
Auggie goes to his psych appointment and suggests a field trip.
Annie goes to the nearest convenience store and buys all the cigarettes.
Back in DC, Auggie takes his shrink outside to teach her how to cross the street blindfolded so she understands him better.
Sayid conveniently comes into the convenience store for a pack. Annie tries again, telling him he seems like a leader. She objects to him seeing her as the Agency but admits her country is only interested in his because they have oil.
Annie goes back to the article again, quotes part of it from memory and suggests they build a bridge between their two nations.
Annie sees a State department SUV and tells him his being off hospital grounds is a violation and puts them both at risk. They run.
Annie and Sayid race across traffic to a neighborhood and down and alley. They duck into a mechanic's garage as two guys in suits follow. They hide behind cars and duck out as the State guys look around.
Back in DC, Auggie gives Suzanne (Daniella Alonso) direction as she attempts to cross the street. She veers off course and gets honked at, but he makes her cover her eyes again and keep going.
Once across, she's ready to do it again.
Annie leads Sayid to a diner so they can talk. He says he doesn't like Western food, but then gets a burger.
Back at Langley, Joan tells Arthur she and Annie both showed initiative. She reminds him he hates State Department people. She thinks he's acting like he's halfway out the door on his way to the Chinese Ambassador job.
"The choice I made today was the right call given the facts that I had," he says. She tells him he'll make a great politician.
In the diner, Sayid tells Annie how his parents were friends with the PM and he moved into the palace when he was 12. He helped nurse an injured bird back to health but remembers learning the lesson of not releasing it before it was ready. Annie thinks it's a progressive political thought for his country.
Annie tells him she's disagreed with her mentors many times, but they believe in her. He suggests what it would feel like to lose that. "Is this how the CIA works, you talk to people like they are on Oprah's couch?" he asks.
Annie walks him back to the hospital. There are still State people out front so they circle the block. He tells her he's sorry it didn't work out. He just wants the PM to recover.
Annie tells him he must not have written the article. The author had courage and vision. He's full of fear and caution.
"How do you convince someone in 10 minutes that you believe in them more than they believe in themselves? Be grateful for what Azem has given you, but look for ways to realize your own potential. I am one of those ways -- we are, right now," she tells him.
He tells her he can't. She walks away. He calls after her, asking questions about how they would keep him safe. He asks about protecting his family. Annie says she'd have to check. He memorizes her number and burns her contact card... it's printed on flash paper... then walks away.
Annie calls Joan. She learns the PM had another heart attack. Annie races to catch Sayid as Joan tells her to get on a plane and avoid an international incident.
On the street, Suzanne asks Auggie how he keeps going. He tells her about having his own street corner moment five years ago. He got frustrated, tossed his cane and walked into traffic, but he didn't get hit.
He announces their session over. She accuses him of always trying to manage people and situations.
Annie sneaks into the Mayo Clinic. She grabs a set of scrubs and goes up to the PM's floor, but gets spotted by State. They chase after her.
She races away from them and gets into an elevator with Sayid, stopping it between floors. She tells him not to confuse the PM's second heart attack as a sign he has to stay put. She tells him her mentor (Joan) said they couldn't protect his family. She disagrees.
He thinks she should understand his position. "Only a fool confuses fate with destiny. Fate is what happens to us, destiny is what we make in spite of our fate," she says, again quoting the article.
He admits he wrote it and asks how she knew.
She says it was courageous.
He restarts the elevator and gets off. The State people grab Annie.
Back in Langley, Annie watches news reports of the PM's death. Sayid is back in Yemen.
Auggie tells Annie it's not her fault. Annie thought she had him. She worries about how angry Joan will be.
Joan summons her.
Instead of yelling, Joan asks Annie if she has any questions about why she couldn't grant Sayid's request. She tells Annie it's ok to be mad at the CIA, and even at her.
Annie announces she's put in for a transfer and leaves.
Heading toward her desk, Annie gets word. There's a Yemeni man on the Asset Line for her. She takes the call.
7Loving the Alien
28 Aug 2012Description ▼
Annie tries to get info from Simon about his upcoming business trip. He suggests she come -- to Cuba.
Annie goes to Lena's house and tells her she wants to go. Lena reminds her the Agency couldn't come get her if she got caught. Lena can't approve it, but she can't stop Annie either. She tells Annie she'll fix her up with a new passport so the Agency can't track her.
At Langley, Auggie asks Annie about her trip and she claims vacation. She tells him she's going to babysit for Danielle's girls. He can tell something's up.
Lena picks up Annie's fake passport and brings it to her.
She gets through customs in Mexico without no problems, then on to Cuba.
At the airport, Simon and Annie hop on his waiting motorcycle. At their vacation house, Simon takes her passport to keep it in the safe. Annie hands it over, hoping she's not making a huge mistake.
Back at Langley, Joan asks Lena if she's seen Annie, mentioning she asked for a transfer. Lena suggests Joan ease up on the micromanaging.
Auggie asks Arthur to get let back in to Jai's investigation. Auggie wants to talk to Henry Wilcox, but Arthur think it's a waste of time. "Operatives who get arrested in bar fights don't get to question their boss' judgment," Arthur says.
In Cuba, Annie is moved by a street singer singing about taking chances in life. Simon wishes he could see the world the way Annie does.
Joan reverses course and tells Arthur she supports him going for the Chinese Ambassador job, she offers to host a dinner.
Over dinner, Simon tells Annie about defecting from Moscow when he was eight. A man eyes them. He asks Annie about moving around as an army brat.He leaves Annie at dinner for a meeting, saying he'll meet her back at the house in an hour.
Annie follows him, walking down the streets of Cuba. When he hops on his bike, she buys one from someone on the street and follows.
At his meeting, Simon meets the man from the restaurant behind barbed wire. Annie climbs up rocky cliffs to get a view of them. She trips and knocks a stone down the hill but they keep walking away from her. She comes upon a giant array in the hillside.
She calls Lena, who knows from her directions she went to the KGB's old largest listening station. Annie says it's operational. With the chips Simon stole, they can turn it into a cellular jamming station, interrupting FAA and all kinds of signals.Annie tells her about her locked up passport. From Annie's description, Lena recognizes Hector Serrano as FSB's top man in Cuba. He's a former FSB hitman, Lena tells Annie she's not safe and to stay away from him.
Annie goes back to the house. Simon notices the cut on her ankle and introduces their dinner guests, Blanca and her boyfriend Hector Serrano.
Blanca tells Annie they get to see Simon every few weeks, because of a deal he's working on with Hector. She mentions it's almost done. Annie compliments Cuba and Hector finds it condescending. He tries to drag Annie into a debate about the embargo.
Joan and Arthur prep for their dinner guests. He's also getting into flyfishing to impress a crony.
Petersburg Prison, VirginiaAuggie visits Henry Wilcox (Gregory Itzin). He starts immediately by accusing Henry of withholding information. Henry shuts down the interview and leaves.
Blanca apologizes for Hector. She says most of Simon's girlfriends want something from him. She says she's never seen Simon so happy.
Later, the couples dance. Hector eyes Annie and tries to cut in. Simon says no, but Annie tells him it's OK. He starts in with the intimidation, telling her he's never met a mid-level museum worker with so many opinions about international politics. He asks her what her sister Danielle does for a living. Annie is visibly thrown since she never mentioned Danielle. She cuts short the dance.
Later, speaking Russian, Hector tells Simon that Annie is not what she seems and she poses a serious problem to their business deal. Simon says he has it under control, but Hector tells Simon he'll do something about her if Simon won't.
Simon finds Annie in the bedroom. She tells him what Blanca said. He agrees, saying he's never met anyone like her. She asks if the trip was too much too soon. They agree to go home tomorrow. But first, they spend the night in bed.
At Joan and Arthur's dinner party, they charm their guests, who tell him he's a shoo-in for the nomination and will sail through the confirmation hearings. He mentions that the timing for Arthur "couldn't be any better" because everyone knows his investigation has turned up nothing. He suggests Arthur can take the job and leave the mess to the next guy.
Arthur bristles and insults his guest, ending the dinner.
Later, while cleaning up, Arthur starts throwing china.
In the morning, Simon tells Annie they're going sightseeing with Hector before their noon flight. She gets into a car with them looking very concerned. Hector sits in the back seat behind her as they drive out into the countryside. They pull up to a warehouse, Simon bribes the guard and shows Annie in, explaining they don't allow talking in the floor. It's a cigar-rolling factory, where women work in silence as a man preaches.
Annie grabs a tobacco cutter while Hector isn't looking. Simon shows Annie to the storage room and insists she go first. He locks her in. She looks through the peephole as he takes out a knife and slits Hector's throat. He lets her out, telling her they have to go. They get back in the car and he takes her to the airport.
He tells her he'll see her soon. He gives her a postcard of Cuba, just like her dad used to get for her after each move.
"Love makes u s do remarkable things," he tells her. He gives her her passport back and kisses her good bye.
Back in Petersburg prison, Auggie summons Henry again. Auggie tells Henry about meeting Jai for the first time and being impressed by his unstoppable thirst for knowledge and interest in solving puzzles. Henry asks what he could get for his information.
"Nothing," Auggie tells him, saying Jai's murder will go unsolved if he doesn't help.Henry gives up the location of Jai's safehouse.
The next day, Joan asks Arthur about him tanking the nomination. He doesn't want to leave the investigation into Jai's death unfinished. Joan wants to know what's going on, but Arthur shuts down.
Annie debriefs Lena, who can't believe Simon killed his handler, the ultimate spy transgression. She thinks Simon is in love with her and that means they can manipulate him to do whatever they want. Annie tries to look excited about it.
04 Sep 2012Description ▼
Annie and Auggie pay a visit to Jai's safe house. Auggie tells Annie that Arthur expressly told him not to talk to Henry, but he didn't want to feel like he failed.
They enter apartment #317 in suburban Fairfax. There are boxes of papers everywhere.
Outside, a car is racing down the street.
There are maps with dates and times on the wall.
The car keeps racing.
They think they're looking at what got Jai killed.
Annie opens a file and sees a photo of Simon Fischer, her asset/boyfriend.
Arthur gets out of the racing car, he pulls up to the same apartment building. He knocks on the door. Annie answers, she called him.
It's 3 a.m.
Arthur takes in the surveillance photos. He knows Auggie talked to Henry. Arthur tells Annie to pack everything up and bring it to his office.
Annie looks at the photos of Simon, full of questions.
Back at Arthur's office, Joan has joined them. Jai believed that six of his 50 mission were blown because of leaks. Annie remembers Jai claimed a connection outside of Langley.
Arthur mentions Fischer. They know he's in DC. They think Fischer killed Jai and want to find him. Annie tells them she's been developing him as an asset and the relationship has turned intimate. She tells them he killed his handler in Cuba for her.
They meet with Lena (Sarah Clarke), who says Annie was following her orders. She says Annie's work on the case was remarkable.
Arthur wants Annie to set up a meet so they can grab him. Instead, she says Simon is a man of integrity and will listen if they approach him with respect. She thinks she can bring him in willingly. Arthur goes for it.
Annie calls Simon but gets his voice mail. She tries again and reaches him. She asks to meet him -- now.
Joan and Lena run into each other in the elevator. Lena compliments Joan for training Annie well. Joan's not mad at Annie, she's mad at Lena for bending rules. She expects fallout. Lena says Annie just needed someone to trust her.
Joan visits Arthur, concerned about the small team he's sending. But he thinks secrecy is the way to go until they know who to trust.
Arthur heads to Petersburg Prison to visit Henry (Gregory Itzin) to find out what else he's holding back. He says it's not about what he wants.
In the van, Annie realizes she'll be on her own with Simon because the meet location will be packed. Auggie outfits her with a lapel mike and he and Annie make plans for drinks after the mission.
Annie goes to meet Simon in the mall. Joan and Arthur listen to her miked audio back at Langley. Annie waits, getting nervous. Finally, Simon shows up.
Annie tells him he's not safe in DC. "My employer is willing to offer you a deal," she tells him, and asks him to come in with her.
He claims he knew who she worked for when she hit his car that first day.
She asks him directly if he killed Jai. He says no, but she thinks FSB did. He points out he's not exactly working with them anymore.
He's a man without a country. She asks him again to come in with her, so they won't have to say good-bye. He asks if he can trust her. "Always," she says.
He asks if she came alone. She says it was a sign of good faith.
Simon sees someone following him, pulls out his pistol and shoots. Annie grabs Simon and they run down the escalator, leaping off to get away from someone else. They head into a department store and into the back, where they escape out the back door.
Annie tells them they don't have a lot of time. Simon starts to talk but she stops him, silently pointing out her microphone and taking it off, then stomping on it.
In the van, Auggie loses his connection.
"This may have started out as a mission, but it turned into something more. I don't want to lose you and if you come in, we could still be together," she tells him. He considers her, but tells her good-bye and sorry.
She tells him she's not sorry. He walks away.
Back at Langley, Annie feels all eyes on her. Auggie says the shooter wasn't Agency sanctioned.
Joan and Arthur want to follow the shooter to find Simon. They pull up security footage. Annie recognizes him from the diner the day when Jai was killed.
Though the CIA soon identifies him as explosives expert and free-lance assassin Leo Brewer and links him to the bomb that killed Jai, they still don't know who Brewer is working for.
Annie insists on going to the motel where they've traced Brewer to. She reminds the tactical team he has to be taken alive.
They storm the motel. Annie sees him walk out of a room and jump over the balcony, holding his wounded shoulder where Simon had shot him. Annie scales the fence and follows him. She corners him. He turns around with the gun in his hand and looks at all the agents facing him. After a pause, he puts the gun in his mouth and pulls the trigger.
Auggie listens to the last few seconds of audio from Annie's mike before she crushed it and realizes what he's listening to.
Annie visits Joan, who is not mad at her. Joan wants to focus on linking the shooter to Simon. Annie asks about staying in Joan's division but Joan says the decision is out of her hands.
Annie visits Auggie, who plays her the audio of her crushing the mike. He asks her if she let Simon go. She doesn't answer. Auggie asks her if she loves him. She doesn't answer.
Annie leaves Danielle a message asking her to call.
Arthur visits Henry in prison again, showing him a picture of Brewer. Henry says made Brewer and last he heard he was rotting in a South American prison. Arthur tells Henry that Brewer killed Jai, on orders from the Russians.
Annie visits Lena, who says she's proud of Annie. Lena points out that even if Simon got away, Annie uncovered a jamming device in Cuba. Lena says Annie did exactly what she would have in her place and she'll be recognized for it as a top operative.
Then Lena takes her report to Arthur, saying they need to talk about Annie.
Annie drives home and gets a call from Auggie telling her to come back to Langley, there's a team going through her desk. Annie looks in her house and sees Simon waiting for her. She hangs up with Auggie.
"I don't want to lose you, either," Simon tells her. But he doesn't want asylum, he's tired of playing the spy game.
He asks her to come away with him. He has a small island off the Maldives that's reachable only by boat and is off the grid. He has been cultivating a false ID there for a decade and invites her to join him. She doesn't think it would work, but he says he's thought of everything. "Will you come with me?" he asks.
"Yes," she says.
She goes through her room and packs up her passports and photo of her nieces. But she stops on the photo. She calls Auggie and tells him she's coming in.
She goes back to Simon, saying they have to talk.
He sees Lena in the doorway first and moves to protect Annie. Lena fires two shots at him, killing him. She shoots Annie twice in the chest next (no surprise to anyone who remembers the first two seasons of 24). Annie drops to the kitchen floor and lies there.

As the life of one the Agency's best hangs in the balance, the team works to discover the truth after it's revealed that one of their own might not be who they thought.
18 Sep 2012Description ▼
Annie checks her scars and gets ready for some sneaking around in black, with a gun. She scales a fence in full cat burglar mode and breaks into a sealed crime scene, Lena's apartment. She goes downstairs and finds a piano. She taps on the keys and a strike team comes in, telling her to freeze."Tell Joan Campbell I need to see her, I figured it out," she says.
Annie meets with Joan and Arthur. She tells them an FSB operative named Dmitri who was in Nairobi when Lena was, his code name was " Rachmaninoff" - he was a talented concert musician but also was believed to have killed two people with piano wire. She went through the 1998 cables and found his name in one from Lena.They think Lena has already fled to Russia. Anne has found a Dmitri working in a music store in Moscow and thinks it's the same one. She wants to approach him for intel on Lena.Arthur and Joan are against it- Lena has killed every agent they've sent after her. They're pursuing diplomatic channels.
Annie trains with Auggie in the gym. He heard about last night and thinks she needs to take it easy. She punches again and ignores her bullet wound when it starts to bleed.
Later, Joan stops by Annie's house. Annie is packing. Joan realized Annie wasn't asking for permission earlier, she was telling them she was going. Joan is willing to support her, but tells her to only take a picture of Lena then come home. She's on her own if Russian authorities catch her. Joan reminds Annie that Lena knows her and is hoping her feelings for Simon will cloud her judgment.Joan tells her to stay focused, then hugs her -- a first.
The next morning, Auggie joins Annie on her ride to the airport. He gives her a plane ticket and a stern warning to be careful. She can't have any contact with Langley in Russia."I am here for you no matter what," he says."That means so much for me, I hope you know that," she says.
Annie arrives in Moscow. She uses the key Auggie gave her to the apartment of a former CIA asset, now dead.
There's a note from Auggie and a backpack full of cash waiting for her. There's a knock at the door, a woman named Katarina with the mail for the former tenant, who she doesn't know is dead.Annie burns the mail.
The next day, she goes to the music store, introducing herself as Pinja Stanis, the former asset. She asks Dmitri for piano lessons. He says no.She asks again, then asks to see her hands. She plays for him. He tells her to stop, then says no lessons.
The next day, she goes back again. He ignores her. She trains in the apartment and goes back the next day. He ignores her. She paces the apartment and gets antsy."Screw it," she decides.
She goes into a café and speaks English. She notices Simon's tattoo symbol in her tea cup. She leaves, expecting to be followed.When she is, she runs into a restaurant to get away. She comes out the back, but is grabbed from behind by Dmitri, holding a piano wire across her throat."Who are you?" he demands."I came for you, Rachmaninoff," she says.
He looked into Pinja, she was left handed, and Annie played with a dominant right. Annie tells him she wants to talk about Lena Smith.
He tells her they met in Nairobi in 1998 after the bombing. They started dating and he thought he'd turned her. But she made a deal with her bosses to get a promotion and turn him in.So he returned to Moscow, no Lena and no job.
Annie tells him Lena took something from her, she came for justice. He says he can't help and asks her to leave him alone.
Back home, Joan confesses that she's backing Annie on her trip. Arthur points out he could fire her for going against him."How's it going to look if she dies?" he asks."How's it going to look? I don't know, but it will feel terrible," she says.
Back at the café, Annie tells the waitress, Zaria, that she knew her brother, Simon. She knows about her, Simon spoke of Annie often.Zaria was his "bright star," the one he got his tattoo for.Annie tells her that Simon was happy before he died.
Annie finds Dmitri again. She tries to urge him to make a difference, skipping all the spy tricks and telling him honestly that she needs him.
He takes her to a cage match to talk to Sergei, the only one he stays in touch with from those days. He's very nervous to talk to her. She stares him down, then shows him her giant backpack of cash as she asks about Lena.He tells her the apartment where Lena is living in the penthouse, ferried to and from biweekly debriefings. He says Lena can't be gotten to."I need a gun," Annie announces.
Dmitri gets her a small pistol -- his own. She takes target practice, but her wound flares up. He sees her bullet scars. He advises her to go home.She wants to stick to the plan to get the picture tomorrow."Trust me, no good can come of this," he says."I'm not looking for good," she says.
The next day, Dmitri and Annie stake out Lena's Mercedes. He gives her a countdown and she rushes out with spikestrips. The car hits it and screeches to a halt. Annie runs over, breaks the window and aims her camera and gun at the backseat. But instead of Lena, she's facing a man with an automatic weapon. She turns and runs, he fires and chases her.
Dmitri picks her up and they drive off.
Joan gets notice from Seth from OIG that the State Department heard about Annie's operation. It doesn't look good and people are saying it could be the end of Arthur.
Annie and Dmitri go back to his shop. She pulls a gun on him.
"I should be dead right now, so you need to start talking," she says.
Annie wants to know why the guy in the car hesitated.
He tells her he thought he was being followed soon after Annie came for lessons. Then Lena reappeared. He choked her, she kissed him. "Pure emotion -- I could feel again," he says.
Lena wanted to use the ambush to discredit Annie. He tells her that Lena wants Annie alive and wants to see her.He tells Annie where to find her. She leaves.
Joan visits Arthur, turning in her letter of resignation. He says he'll take it under consideration.
Auggie calls Annie to warn her that the police are looking for her and she needs to get out."This isn't the agency calling and I'm not Joan. There things that I need to say to you face to face, important things. Please," he says."See you soon," she says.
Annie pays Simon's sister a visit in the café and they share a cup of tea. Annie followed by several men as she leaves.
They catch up with her in the Metro and stop her -- but it's not Annie. It's Simon's sister.
Meanwhile, Annie sneaks up on Lena at her lake house. Lena is waiting for her, defenseless."If you pull the trigger, you'll never know the truth about Simon," Lena says. "Were Simon and I friends, colleagues, lovers?"
They never met face to face. She picked Simon because he was her type. She expected Annie to fall for him, but didn't expect him to fall for her.Jai was onto her, so she had Leo Brewer take him out. She needed somebody to take the fall and Annie was available, vulnerable and ready to prove herself.She suggests Annie become a double, like her, to experience power.
Annie sits down at the table with Lena, who points out she had the power to summon Annie to the woods. Lena wants her to show her the game.Lena tells Annie she'll never make it out of Russia and the worst part will be the knowledge that she killed for malice.We see the gun down the back of Lena's pants as she stalls and dares Annie to fire.Finally, Lena makes a move for her gun. And Annie shoots.Lena drops dead to the floor.
11Rock 'n' Roll Suicide
16 Oct 2012Description ▼
Annie pulls the trigger in the Russian lake cabin, leaving Lena dead on the floor. Her phone rings, it's Auggie, wondering where she is. She goes outside, telling him she's coming home, when she hears movement in the woods. She runs. Shots barely miss her.
She takes the SIM card out of her phone and throws the phone. She runs, hiding from Russian police on ATVs. One speeds toward her and she steps out and whacks him off his ride. Two more men come out with guns and she puts up her arms. Then she attacks, disarming one. She keeps fighting as more men come out of the woods until one comes up behind her and knocks her out.
Later, Annie is lead shackled and blindfolded through a dank Russian prison. She's led into an interrogation room, where a man named Alexei questions her. She sticks with her cover ID, speaking in Russian, but he claims she's Annie Walker, sent here to murder her former CIA boss.
He takes out her phone and says the last number was to Mingus, who he says is her handler. He takes out a diagram linking Mingus to Auggie Anderson. She realizes there's no point pretending.
Back at Langley, they meet to figure out a contingency plan. It's been four days since they heard from Annie. Worst case is that she's been captured and can't hold up under interrogation.Joan is confident she will, but she has to review the operations that Annie knows about.
Later, Joan accuses Arthur of being impersonal about it. He tells Joan her resignation isn't the only one being discussed. He assures her they're working on what to do about Annie.Joan worries that Annie didn't understand the implications of "will deny all knowledge" before she went.
Joan pops a pill.
In her cell, the Russians play an irritating high pitched white noise to drive Annie to the edge. When she uses her mattress to block out the noise, they take it.Alexei talks to Annie again, asking what Simon told her about his missions. She gives him nothing.
Back at Langley, it's now been two weeks since she disappeared. Auggie busts into Arthur's office demanding they do something. He suggests a rescue operation to the prison where he guesses Annie is being held, which Arthur calls a suicide mission. He says he's had teams working up plans since she disappeared but none of them have been deemed feasible. He tells Auggie that until facts change on the ground, he can't do anything.
In her cell, Annie busts up a rusted piece of bed and wraps shirt cloth around it to make a weapon. In interrogation, Alexei thinks he's getting through to Annie and uncuffs her so she can write out answers to his questions. She attacks, but he almost immediately disarms her.He tells her now is when they introduce harsher interrogation methods, but not on her -- on Simon's sister, Zaria.
Annie paces in her cell, holding in rage and tears. When she lies down, she hears gunshots outside her cell. Someone tosses a gas mask through the door. It opens, she puts it on. He leads her out, past bodies on the ground. She pauses to get Alexei's pocket watch from him. Her rescuer leads her out through the prison walls and up through a street grate. The heavily fortressed prison is in the middle of a neighborhood lined with trees.
Her rescuer takes off his gas mask. It's Eyal (Oded Fehr), her old Mossad spy friend. "Sorry to drop in unannounced. I didn't have your phone number. You weren't doing anything today, were you?" he asks.
She hugs him, collapsing.He drives her to an apartment. He gives her a change of clothes, checks her passport and gives her her go bag. She's in stunned silence. He tells her to take the 14 minutes they have to take a shower.
He gets online to establish protocol. He's not there on Mossad business. "Just know that you have at least one really good friend back home," he tells her.
He posts on a dog chat room. "Found: One Female Collie. House-trained. Not Spayed. Contact E."
Back at Langley, Auggie gets the message.He goes to see Arthur.
"Let me get this straight, you staged an unsanctioned off-book one-man jailbreak with an operative from a competing spy service? That's what you took from our last meeting?" Arthur says. Auggie hasn't had the chance to tell Joan yet, she's not in her office.
Arthur guesses the Russians will now plan to shoot Annie on sight. Annie will take the train to Helsinki with a clean ID. There will be too many road blocks so Auggie knows they'll need help. There are no operatives in Moscow since Lena burned them, so they'll try to get some in from Helsinki, which gives Annie and Eyal a few hours on their own.
Eyal tells Annie they have a train to catch, but she wants to get Simon's sister safe first. He tries to point out how dangerous it is, but she's not listening.
Annie and Eyal stake out the café. She goes inside. Zaria is glad to see she's alive. She grew up around spies and has a packed bag waiting. Annie is dismayed to see her passport is in her real name. Annie gives Zaria hers, cutting out the picture and replacing it.
Zaria gives Annie the key to her family's steamer trunk, the one Simon told her about, telling Annie she is her family now. They hug good bye.
Annie joins Eyal waiting nervously outside and they head to the train station. There are cops everywhere. As they walk past, Eyal kisses Annie to hide her face. There are FSB at every train entrance. Annie sees Alexei on the platform. Annie and Eyal jog and Alexei chases them. They cross tracks in front of a moving train and get away, but get separated.
Annie hides, waiting for Alexei. She disarms him but he fights back. He pins her, but she throws him off, getting his gun. He disappears and Eyal finds her.
Back at Langley, they've lost contact with Annie. Joan finally joins Arthur and Auggie after having been unreachable.
Annie and Eyal regroup at the apartment, where she confesses she gave her go bag to Zaria. He points out that was their only lifeline and suggests if she lost the will to live in prison, she better shake it off. She says she's ready to go home.
Auggie posts on the chat room.
At Langley, Auggie locates the transponder of a cargo plane. Both pilots are loyal to Poland, they've planned to keep the cargo bay door open until 7 p.m. to give Annie and Eyal a chance to make it on board.
On the road to the airstrip, Annie looks at the pocket watch she lifted from Alexei. Eyal is surprised at the name, their intel said a guy name Olag would handle her interrogation.They stop where the map says.
Eyal asks what Annie was asked. She tells him it was about Simon's ops, but she didn't know the answers. The scariest part was he didn't believe her.
They find the airstrip, it's fenced and heavily guarded. Eyal is open to suggestions.
Back at the car, Annie sits beside it like she's hurt and two guards come to investigate. One sees her photo on his wanted poster and is about radio in when Eyal knocks him out.They take the car and their uniforms. The plane leaves in two minutes.
At the checkpoint, the guard waves them through.
They drive to the cargo plane and climb on. The bay door closes. Inside, Annie asks Eyal if he took the mission because he felt guilty about giving her the file on Simon. She says not to, she knew made her own choies.
"I'm Jewish, what do I know from guilt?" he jokes. He says he was going to be in the neighborhood anyway.
Back at Langley, they watch the screen, watching the cargo plane taxi down the runway.
Suddenly, the plane stops and the cargo door opens. Alexei stands outside, surrounded by armed men. They have no choice but to surrender.
Alexei takes Annie and Eyal back in a transport van. He doesn't know Eyal's real name. His passport says Mark Sanderson.
Alexei contemplates his pocket watch. She says it shows sentimentality, and it also shows he's not Olag. She accuses him of stepping in to interrogate her at the last minute out of fear over what she might say, that Simon told her Alexi was a traitor who was double dealing.Alexei thinks she's bluffing.
Eyal follows her lead, saying it's all in the file they were assembling. He says he's Mossad.
Annie knows Alexei is in trouble if even part of what she's saying is true. She suggests he take the clean Mark Sanderson passport and start a new life where the FSB can't find him.He asks what happens if he shoots them both.
Annie says the details of the ID will be sent to the FSB if they're not safe in 24 hours.
Alexei stops the van. He takes them into the woods and fires over their heads, saying they'll be reported dead. He tells them to head to the nearest port 20 km north.
Annie confesses to Eyal she made a calculated guess to bluff him.
Eyal and Annie head to freedom on a shipping vessel. He brings her blankets and asks when the last time she slept was. He's reminiscing about their close call when she drifts off.
23 Oct 2012Description ▼
Culpeper Regional Airport, Brandy Station, VirginiaAnnie returns to US soil and gets in an SUV. The driver won't tell her where they're going but suggests she get comfortable.They pull up to a farm.
A man in shirt sleeves named Gary welcomes her to the farm, an agency "safe" facility. She wants to go back to Langley, but he says they'll get to that.He pours her juice and they sit at a table in a barn. They'll be going over timelines and events."And if I'm contrite enough I get to go back to my desk?" she asks.
The man asks if she fell in love with Simon Fischer. She says yes. "So you were unable to separate your personal life from your professional life?" he asks.
She points out the Agency wanted her to blur them, and she's very good at it. Someone brings him a note. There's been a change of plans.
Annie returns to Langley.Auggie's waiting for her with a hug. He asks about the farm.She wants to know why she was only there for two hours.
She remembers there was something he wanted to tell her face to face. He suggests she settle in first.
Annie returns to stares from everyone. Joan informs her they're going to Code Orange, which means uncleared visitors.
Eyal walks in with Rivka Singer, with Mossad.
Yesterday, one of their assets, a Swiss national named Karina went missing in the U.S. Mossad wants the CIA's help finding her using their voice recognition system. They offer in return to share their intelligence from Karina, who works on private jets carrying Saudi oil men. They gave her a watch that can read all their data.
Annie talks to Eyal, who wants to meet Auggie, the one with the plan to save Annie. Eyal bear hugs him.After Eyal and Rivka leave, Joan tells Annie she's back provisionally. She'll have to get a new safe house and cover ID, she'll no longer work at the Smithsonian.
She tells Annie that Rivka only came because Eyal couldn't negotiate this on his own. She wants Annie to bring the watch to Langley, but not share the intel with Eyal. Joan says they have to assume Mossad isn't telling them everything.
Annie takes Eyal to the hotel where their voice recognition placed Karina."Just because I saved you out of a Russian prison doesn't mean you owe me," he says."I didn't say I did.""Why not? I saved you out of a Russian prison," he says.
They go in the room, Annie hears someone hiding in a cabinet. She helps Karina out. She's relieved Annie isn't Israeli, then she sees Eyal.
Her purse was stolen and when she came back her house was ransacked, but nothing was taken. She thinks it was the weird man who came up to her on the plane and asked her how she started working for the airline.She says she wants out, but Eyal says no.
Annie tries to smooth things over and asks about the watch. Eyal offers $500,000 for it. Karina says it's her only leverage. Then she clutches her stomach in pain and drops to the floor, dead.
Back and Langley, Joan says the ME says Karina was poisoned 24 hours ago. Annie asks Rivka if she can share anything about the intel. Rivka gets angry, calling the question inappropriate and insulting Annie as an operative. Eyal sticks up for her.Annie suggests they can continue the mission.
Arthur calls for Annie to tell her she's getting the Intelligence Metal of Merit, the award with the cash payment. He says they're proud of her. He tells her Joan was deeply distraught while Annie was in Russia.
Meanwhile, Joan has lunch with Seth. She's worried about Annie. "I see her falling into all the same patterns I did," she says.He suggests she talk to her."How can I do that without... compromising my position?" Joan says.Seth puts his hand on Joan's and reassures her she'll reach Annie.
Annie visits Auggie, who has ID'd the man Karina described: Griffin Kohl, ex-CIA. He uses ricin. Now he works for Khaleed Ansari, son of one of the most powerful oil men in Saudi Arabia.
Annie takes the info to Joan, who says Khaleed is untouchable -- his dad plays golf with the vice president. Annie wants to move forward but Joan wants to call it off.
Annie now thinks she can find out what Eyal is after and get to the watch first. Joan worries Eyal is handling Annie.
Annie drives to the last place Karina visited yesterday morning, per traffic cams Auggie hacked into. She's about to use her metal detector when Eyal strolls up. He left a GPS in her car. Eyal tells her Mossad thinks Khaleed is using charities to funnel terror funds and they think that info is on the watch.
They search and Eyal digs. In Mossad, when you return home after capture, they throw you a feast in the desert. He asks what the CIA does."Pay you off," Annie says.Eyal hits something and takes out a small box with a key in it.
Joan tells Rivka they can't use Agency resources to break into the safety deposit box without alerting other agencies and blowing their cover. Annie offers to pose as Karina. Rivka hates the idea, but Joan offers to wire her.
Eyal worries about Annie being unprotected in the vault and Karina's killer coming after her. She points out they might already be onto it with the contents of her purse.Rivka agrees, but Eyal doesn't like it.
Annie tells Joan what Eyal said, Annie believes him.
Privately, Rivka chews out Eyal for involving Annie and defending her. He says he's protecting the mission. Rivka asks if he's sleeping with her. He says no, and she says why not, it might speed things along.
Auggie finds Annie cramming to pose as Karina, wearing the key from Simon's sister around her neck. She comments on her weird day, starting out at the farm.
Arthur sees Joan coming out of somewhere at Langley in front of Seth. When Arthur asks, she pretends she didn't see Seth.
Annie goes home to her empty house, where Lena killed Simon and shot her. She has trouble going in the door and heads to a hotel instead. She says she'll be staying for awhile.
Metropolitan Bank, Alexandria, Va.
Annie goes into the bank and gives all Karina's details. The first signature doesn't match. Annie signs again and it goes through. Mossad's feed cuts out as she enters the vault, as they expected.
The bank manager leaves Annie alone and she opens up the safe deposit box. She takes out the watch. She's locked in the vault when Griffin Kolhl strolls up demanding the watch. He tapped into the bank security and knows Eyal is her only back-up. She takes the watch box out of her pocket and hands it over. She yells to be let out of the vault and the manager comes.
Eyal sees Griffin leave out the back and follows him. Griffin goes up on a roof and puts on rappelling gear. Annie runs up and grabs the watch case from Griffin, but he struggles with her and rappels down awkwardly, landing funny on his leg. He limps away.
Annie tells Eyal he got away. Then she tells him she's tried keeping secrets from people closest to her, but it didn't work. She shows him she's wearing the watch. "This belongs to both of us," she says.
At Langley, Annie accepts her award from Arthur.At the cocktail party later, Joan tells Annie she's confident they'll find Griffin and analysts are going through the intel from the watch now.
She races to talk to Annie before Arthur comes over, saying she knows Annie is close to Eyal. "I know that kinship can be comforting, but he works for a competing service, Annie," Joan says.She's worried about it being a pattern.
"What I mean is, the people you can count on are here," Joan says. Annie doesn't seem to get her message. She leaves before Auggie can say good-bye.
Annie comes back to her hotel and finds Eyal waiting in the lobby. He tells her it's depressing and to go get her bag.
Joan and Seth walk into the secret room they were coming out of before. It's a Narcotics Anonymous meeting.
Eyal leads Annie to an apartment, his place in DC. He offers to let her stay until she's back on her feet. He says he has a flight to catch, but she asks him to stay and eat with her.
Auggie goes to Annie's place, but can't see that it's dark and empty.
Eyal asks Annie how long until her supervisors realize she shared her intel. She doesn't care. They paired them because they work well together, they don't get to have it both ways.Eyal says she could have never told him she had the watch and asks why she shared it with Mossad."I didn't share it with Mossad, I shared it with you," she says as he puts on his coat to leave.He says good-night and leaves.
Later, he gets in Rivka's waiting car. He gives her the intel from the watch, saying Annie gave it to him."So, you are the right man for this job," she says, asking if he'll initiate the next phase."Like we discussed," he says.She asks where Annie's staying. "At her place," Eyal says.
13Man in the Middle
30 Oct 2012Description ▼
Annie wakes up in Eyal's apartment. She's looking for coffee when there's a knock at the door. Someone slips a file under it.She opens it. Inside there's a note that says "One Mitzvah deserves another."
Auggie wakes up to Parker at his front door.
After her NA meeting, Joan turns down Seth's offer for breakfast. She reminds him the program discourages same sex sponsorships, especially when the people used to be involved."Can you honestly tell me that you're out of the woods on this relapse?" he asks.Seth asks her to tell Arthur, but she says she can't in a place that polygraphs as much as this.
Auggie asks Parker to cut to the chase. She explains that the military support payments her parents were getting after her brother Billy's death stopped and the bank is about to foreclose. He's hesitant to get involved but says he will.
Joan finds Annie waiting for her. Joan reminds her she was supposed to go back to Blue Bonnet Farm. The file shows that Khalid Ansari has a secret meeting within 12 hours. Annie thinks she can turn his girlfriend to find out where it is. But Joan doesn't want to look into Khalid Ansari and can tell from the file that Annie shared the contents of the watch drive even though Joan explicitly told her not to.
Joan calmly tells Annie she's concerned her judgments are being affected by her personal attachments.Joan sends her home.Instead, Annie goes over Joan's head and calls Arthur.
Annie goes to meet with him. He immediately recognizes the man Khalid is supposed to meet with as Kamal Al-Mazri, the brains behind the Brothers in Allah network, behind the London hotel bombing. Arthur wants to track the meeting.
Khalid's girlfriend is Megan Carr, Staff Director for the House Energy and Commerce committee. Annie assures Arthur than Eyal can be trusted. He gives her the go ahead to talk to Megan.
Arthur handles Joan, who is naturally upset he overruled her. But he knew who Al-Mazri was because he's getting updates she's not getting anymore. "People on the seventh floor" think Joan's lost focus since sending Annie to Russia. Arthur agreed with the decision, he thinks she hasn't been herself. She started disappearing late at night and during the work day.He asks again what's going on but she focuses on him undermining her.
Annie finds Megan Carr at a DC restaurant and works up to mentioning her secret boyfriend and the fact dating him would be a conflict of interest. Megan agrees to talk to Annie, guessing she's CIA. She assures Annie he's not who they think he is. Megan says you don't choose who you fall in love with, no matter how much baggage they have. She walks away without agreeing to help.
Annie goes back to Arthur asking for permission to show Megan some of the evidence they have against her boyfriend. Arthur questions the validity of her Mossad information. "You're willing to stake your reputation? Your career?" he asks.Annie says yes and he grants her request.
Auggie intercepts her coming out of Arthur's office and suggests she do some fence mending with Joan, reminding her she might need her one day.
Back at the DC restaurant, Annie walks by the same man in the lobby.Megan is able to dismiss the charities that are terrorist fronts that Annie shows her, then Annie shows her a picture of the man sitting in the lobby, and another of him following Megan another time, saying Khalid hired him.Megan points out it's illegal to conduct surveillance on American citizens, which Annie knows. She points out Megan has been very trusting of Khalid, but he hasn't shown her the same courtesy. If she calls Khalid like they're asking, it'll either prove she's right about him or she'll know to end the relationship.
Megan texts Khalid. When he calls back she has to keep him on the phone for 40 seconds for the CIA to trace it. He can tell she's stalling, he asks if something wrong and she says she's just tired of all his unexplained absences and mysterious trips. He promises to take her somewhere nice. She successfully keeps him talking for 40 seconds.
Back at Langley, Arthur catches Joan up to speed. Al-Mazri is No. 17 on the terrorist kill list, so if they get a clear shot, they have the OK to send in a drone. By virtue of meeting with him, Khalid would become a viable target, too, despite his State Department protections. But they have to run it by legal, Seth, first.
Auggie goes to the Department of Veteran's Affairs on Parker's behalf and learns her parents forgot to sign a form a few months back so it's in a backlog. Auggie asks for a favor and his contact happily obliges. He did a tour with Operation Proper Exit to feel better about coming home, a group that takes wounded vets back to Iraq. He suggests Auggie do it as a "battle buddy."
Back at Langley, Arthur lays the case out to Seth. They've tracked Al-Mazri via satellite to near the coordinates of Khalid's call and there are no schools or anything nearby.
Seth worries about targeting Khalid. "I don't need the Secretary of State and two former Presidents asking me why I killed the son of their favorite golf buddy," Seth says."We can't let terrorists go free just because their dads have a ten golf handicap," Arthur argues.
Seth agrees to get a revised order.When Seth leaves, Arthur asks what's going on between Joan and him. Joan says she needed someone to talk to. Arthur asks why she hasn't come to him. She goes back to him taking her off a clearance list. They leave things unresolved.
Auggie gets Annie, telling her a drone strike has been approved and she gets to watch it.Annie goes to the secret room in the basement to watch.
They have satellite imagery confirming Khalid and Al-Mazri are both on site. Joan makes a public pitch that the drone strike is the wrong move with Khalid and they should try to develop him through Megan instead. Annie backs Joan up, saying that's possible.
But Arthur and the other voices in the room think they have to take out terrorists when they have the chance and the strike is approved.
Seth comes down to report they have approval to hit both men. The drone is 20 miles away.
Arthur makes a pointed comment to Seth that it's amazing how fast our friends become our enemies and there's always collateral damage.
The drone flies to its target and Arthur gives the "go" order. Annie and Joan watch anxiously. The missiles are fired and close in. The target is destroyed. They all turn away from the screens when Annie notices a jeep speeding away. It's Khalid.
Because of the satellite delay, they can't shoot until he stops. Annie realizes he's heading straight into the center of town, where they can't fire because of all the civilians. He gets out and runs into the crowd.They triangulate his cell phone, but it's still in his car.
Annie goes to the concert performance where she knows Megan will be. Megan just talked to Khalid, who she says asked about their earlier conversation. Annie warns Megan that Khalid is going to come after her.She asks Megan to come with her.
Parker comes by Auggie's and he gives her the good news that her parents will get their check by the end of the week. She goes to hug him but he holds her off.She admits she wanted to see him. She says she wanted their relationship to work and is sorry it didn't. He says this needs to be the last time they see each other.
Sitting at her desk, Joan contemplates her bottle of pills. She calls in for a refill, but her usual pharmacist isn't there.
Megan is angry and blames Annie, but Annie says Megan put herself in the position by dating Khalid. Annie starts to lead her away when they notice the man from before approaching them. Annie runs upstairs to the scaffolding above an empty theater. The man follows, taking out his gun as he walks along the catwalk.
Annie crosses to him and throws a weight against him, knocking his gun away. She fights the man off as Megan crawls for the gun. Megan fires and Annie is able to push the man over the edge.
Back at Langley, Joan calls Annie into her office. She tells her DNA checks are being run on Al-Mazri and they're tracking Khalid.
Annie expects to report to Blue Bonnet but Joan says that might not be an option, the failed drone strike was acting on intelligence Annie brought in. Annie realizes she's going to get blamed for everything.
Joan blames Eyal, too, but Annie defends him, saying he saved her life."Annie, we are always here for you," Joan says.
Annie thinks about that for a moment and unloads. "When my friend died in a car bomb, you let me get reassigned. When I got thrown into a Russian prison, you let me rot, without a shred of hope. Eyal got me out. And now, you're questioning my integrity, of my relationship with him? A relationship you encouraged me to exploit as long as it was convenient for this agency?"
Joan doesn't react. "You know what? I'm done. Our relationship is clearly more broken than I thought it was," she says.
Annie tries to explain she meant the agency, not Joan, but Joan thinks Annie said exactly what she meant. She suggests Annie follow up on the transfer she asked for awhile back. Annie leaves.
Joan goes to Arthur's office. He gives her the number of the hotel where he'll be staying "to clear his head."She tells him she can't handle him leaving right now.He says he needs distance.She says there's something she needs to tell him.
Annie finishes her report for Joan. Auggie calls, trying to convince her to come to the bar. She tells Auggie the fence-mending with Joan didn't work. Annie looks at the surveillance photos and sees something amiss.
She goes to Arthur's office and busts in on Arthur and Joan, who is wiping away tears.Annie announces the photos were doctored, Al Mazri was never at the compound."Mossad played us," Annie says."No, Eyal played you," Joan says.

Rosslyn, VirginiaAuggie calls Annie to tell her the photo of Al-Masri was definitely doctored. Annie drops by Megan in protective custody. She's angry at Annie for the fact she lost her job, apartment and boyfriend.
In Arthur's office they're in full crisis mode. None of the DNA from the drone strike victims matched Al-Masri. Arthur's being hauled before a Senate Intelligence committee hearing in a matter of hours. Annie doesn't understand why Mossad would doctor evidence and alienate them as allies. Annie asks Joan what she can do to help, and Joan tells her to go back to Blue Bonnet for her Russia debrief. She also tells Annie not to contact Eyal, just in case it needs to be said.
On the road, Annie notices she's being followed. Her phone rings. It's Eyal. He's the one behind her and tells her to pull over. She asks him if he knew there was false intel in the file when he gave it to her. He swears on his son's life he didn't.
He tells her they intercepted a call from Khalid saying he wanted revenge on the person who sold him out.Annie rushes to check on Megan. The guard outside her door says no one's been there. Annie goes in and finds a chair knocked over, a window open and Megan gone.
They check outside security camera footage and Annie sees Griffin Kohl driving by. She calls Auggie. She doesn't want to tell Joan or Arthur until she has something solid.
Outside the hotel, Annie catches Eyal up to speed. He wants to follow the car to West Virginia because Kohl is a Mossad target.
Back at Langley, Arthur is in crisis mode. He blames himself for missing something.
Later, Joan tells Auggie they need ammunition against Mossad. She's bringing Rivka in later.
Annie and Eyal reach the location on Kohl's lo-jac, a warehouse garage in an industrial area. Annie thinks it means bad news for Megan. They check the car, but it's empty. They both get a bad feeling. They see a photo of Megan in the front seat. Annie opens the door, but something beeps. They run as the car explodes.
Annie checks in with Auggie. Joan hears and asks to talk to Annie. She explains why she's with Eyal and makes a case to follow up on Megan. Joan is livid and fed up. She tells Annie to do whatever she wants and hangs up on her. Auggie tells Joan that Annie is just trying to win her respect back and being sent to Blue Bonnet feels like punishment. Joan says it is, and she can't get her out of it, but Auggie doesn't believe it.Joan changes the subject.
Back with Eyal, Annie gets a text from Auggie that Kohl has a brother five minutes from where they are.
At Langley, Auggie explains they tried to track where the Al-Masri photo was taken from by tracing satellite paths, including an Israeli one. Israeli satellite photos have a telltale bad pixel mark that appears on the Al Masri photo.
Outside Kohl's brother's house, Annie and Eyal approach him. When she mentions his brother, Daniel runs. They chase him and tackle him.
He says he hasn't seen his brother in two years, but he's clearly lying. Eyal tells Annie to check the house. When she's walks away, Eyal sticks his gun in Daniel's cheek. Daniel says he lent his brother his car to go to a nearby airport, but he doesn't know anything about Megan. Annie sees the whole thing.
Back in the car, Annie questions Eyal's methods.
Eyal tells Annie about meeting Johanna Peterson in Amsterdam, a woman who was perfect to insert in Khalid's organization.In flashback, we see Eyal in bed with her as he talks about her natural spy talents. She fit in easily with Khalid and was a great source of intel until one day it stopped. Khalid called offering her life in exchange for being taken off Mossad's target list. The next day, they found Johanna had been poisoned.
Just like Rina, the last woman Kohl poisoned. He says he understands Annie wanting to find Megan now.
Before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Arthur explains the intelligence they had. Flipping through the file he sees the name Zamir Gerson, the Israeli Minister of Agriculture. He cuts his testimony short, saying he hasn't had time to prepare. They give him two weeks. Arthur tells his people to get him everything they have on Zamir.
At Langley, Joan lays out the satellite evidence to Rivka. She looks at it and says she owes CIA an apology, that they were both duped. She gives Joan a file on Eyal.
Auggie calls Annie, who's in the car with Eyal. As she drives, Auggie explains that Rivka is saying Eyal went rogue, wanting to get Khalid over the death of a woman in Amsterdam. He's being decommissioned as a Mossad agent. Annie cuts things short and pulls over.
She confronts Eyal .He admits it, but she doesn't believe him."You're sacrificing yourself to protect them," she says."You're wrong, I acted on my own," he says unconvincingly.
Annie asks if he had to use her to get what he wanted. He tells her her trust in people makes her weak and a target.
Annie drives off, leaving him in the road.
She arrives at a nearby airfield and sees Kohl in his brother's van. Annie crashes the gate and drives in front of the private jet to stop it. She pulls her gun and orders the pilot to open the hatch.
She searches the plane, which appears empty. Kohl walks out behind her with his gun, Annie drops her. He says he gave Megan a plane ticket and a fake passport, she went to see Khalid.
Annie sees Eyal step onto the plane and takes the distraction as an opportunity to strike Kohl. He gets his arm around Annie's neck and is struggling with her. She can't get free, but she yells at Eyal to take the shot. After a moment's hesitation, he does, nailing Kohl between the eyes.
Auggie goes to meet his friend Kip from veteran's affairs. He introduces Major James Wild who wants Auggie to come be a "Battle Buddy" to replace someone who was supposed to leave in 10 days. Auggie hesitates, but Wild gives him a week to decide.
Annie tells Eyal he might be right that she needs thicker skin but she still doesn't believe he'd give her doctored photos knowing what would happen."I'm saying I'm giving you one last chance to save our friendship," she says."There's nothing I can say," Eyal says.
Back at Langley, Arthur hasn't made any headway. Joan has been thinking about what he said about taking responsibility for the bad intel.
She points out he got the intel because Annie felt the need to go above her head. "I think I've lost control of my department and my operatives because I haven't been the supervisor they've needed. I set a poor example of how to do this job... I've run myself into the ground.""What do you want to do about it?""Something that I've never done before: take a few days off, starting now," she says.Arthur loves the idea.
They're interrupted by Arthur's secretary, who tells them Henry Wilcox's sentence is being commuted. Arthur goes back to Zamir's name and asks to schedule a meeting with Henry.
Eyal meets with Rivka, who thinks things have gone according to plan. Eyal feels awful about betraying Annie. When Rivka offers him a desk, he quits. He's done some questionable things, but this was too much. He trusted Annie, she saved his life five times, even though she only counts three, he notes.
"What is happening here is much larger than you know. We've all had to play our parts. We've all had to pay a price," Rivka says.He asks what she's lost."You," she says.Eyal leaves.
Auggie gives Annie the good news she doesn't have to go back to Blue Bonnet. Joan changed her mind.
Megan is brought to see Khalid at whatever opulent hotel he's hiding out in. She's glad he could explain everything. "Now tell me about the woman who approached you," he says."Her name is Annie Walker."
Over beers, Annie obsesses over how to find Megan Carr. She finally gives Auggie the floor."I'm deploying to Iraq tomorrow, Operation Proper Exit. They've assigned me as a battle buddy to PFC Pete Downey," Auggie says. Downey has PTSD.Annie thinks it could be great for Auggie.In the office, Eric Barber checks in with Annie on Megan Carr. She was found strangled in a hotel in Luxembourg. She had a flash drive on her. They haven't been able to find her sister yet to make the notification.Annie asks if he knows how to make a fake ID.Cut to Annie landing in Luxembourg. She passes herself off as Megan's sister and goes in to see the body. But when she pulls back the sheet, it's not Megan. Annie leaves the morgue and sees the attendant running away on the video monitor. Annie runs as a man shoots at her with a tranquilizer gun. She hides until he walks past her then bashes him with her Louboutins to get away.Out on the street, she sees an SUV pull up.She calls Langley for an action plan and with Joan out of the office, Auggie's replacement, Linda, tells her it'll take a half hour to come up with her extraction plan, even after Annie explains they're trying to take her hostage.Annie ducks into a parking garage, but is cornered when the stairs are locked. She climbs into an unlocked car's back seat and watches on the rear view as a man searches for her.She calls Eyal to ask the best way out of Luxembourg, knowing she can't take trains or planes. He tells her what roads to take and says he'll meet her in Zurich. She hotwires the car and crashes through the gate.U.S. Forward Operating Base Camp VictoryAuggie lands with Downey. He tries to engage him, but after orientation, Downey says he's beat.Petersburg PrisonArthur pays Henry a visit to ask about Zamir Gerson, the Israeli Minister of Agriculture, who personally signed off on the training compounds they targeted. Arthur wants to know why the Minister of Agriculture was involved, he knows Henry knows Gerson from Princeton.Henry tells Arthur he's trying to make things right. "All you need to know for now is the drone strike was not a failure. You made the right call," Henry says, adding there's a reason his sentence was commuted.He assures him they're right to target Khalid."Don't worry, you'll come up smelling like a rose, Arthur. I've been assured. You'll see," Henry says.ZurichAnnie goes to the apartment where she knows she'll find Eyal. He's already having a passport made for her, but she's not planning to leave.She wants to get to Khalid before he gets to her. "Can I use you?" she asks."Use me," Eyal says.Annie wonders why Khalid wants her alive. With his accounts frozen, they wonder how Khalid is paying his henchmen.Eyal is in Zurich following Omar Ansari, Khalid's father. He knows Omar got 50,000 Euro in cash and went to a club to make the drop, but Eyal didn't see to whom.They expect there to be another drop. Eyal's banker contact calls, Omar got 250,000 this time.IraqThe soldiers are brought to Hero's Highway, the place where many of them were medivac'd out. Downey is reluctant and walks away. Auggie follows.Downey tells Auggie him coming back was his wife's idea. He got a Purple Heart, but all he got was a concussion and his lieutenant died saving him. Auggie tells him every soldier that got one feels guilty about it, but it's OK to have some trauma from battle. Downey is unmoved by what Auggie says and leaves.Back in Zurich, Eyal visits a jeweler to get 100,000 in clean diamonds. But the man won't give them to him without clearing it through Rivka. When Eyal objects, the man pulls a taser on him. Eyal is about to strong arm him when Annie pulls him off.Outside, he admits he quit Mossad. They need the money to bribe their way into the club to see who Omar is passing money to and follow the courier to Khalid.Annie buys a new phone and calls Joan for a favor, 100,000 Euro in cash in less than an hour. Annie catches Joan up.Arthur asks for more DNA evidence from the drone strike. His assistant tells him the Senate hearing has been cancelled, they're satisfied.Eyal and Annie prep. He hopes they can patch things up.They get a delivery, "compliments of Mrs. Campbell." It's a briefcase full of cash.At the club, Omar pulls up on time with his satchel. Outside the club, Eyal tells her the dining room is for men only. He plans to stick the courier with a tiny GPS that they can trace.In their best fancy club finery, Annie and Eyal pass the cash off to the attendant and head inside. Annie waits downstairs and Eyal goes looking for Omar in the dining room.When Eyal is seated, a waiter comes over and tells him Omar has invited him to join him since they're the only two dining alone. Eyal does, using a fake name.Auggie goes looking for Downey with a beer. He mentions he saw a shrink after smashing a guy's head with a bottle. Downey says no one who hasn't been to Iraq understands what it's like. Auggie tells him about a young Iraqi boy who stayed by his side after he was wounded and waiting for the medics. He kept him alive by telling him about his new soccer ball. Auggie thinks he wouldn't have made it, and gotten his Purple Heart, without the kid.ZurichIn the club, a man sits down near Annie and watches her. She gets up and walks away.Omar tells Eyal he's had a standing lunch date with his son every Thursday for the past 11 years. "I built so much for him, yet he seems incapable of claiming his rightful place," Omar says.He gets a text and the waiter comes for the satchel.Eyal is stuck there as Omar tries to figure out why he looks familiar. He texts Annie one word: "Waiter."Annie sees the waiter come downstairs with the satchel and watches as he hands it off. Annie walks toward the courier, a blond woman.It's Megan.Annie asks where she's going with the bag. She notices Megan's giant new engagement ring, but warns her he'll get rid of her when she's no longer useful. She tells Megan about the dead body standing in for her in a morgue in Luxembourg. Megan is still angry about the CIA taking her old life away, and plans to stick with Khalid.Annie tells her it's her decision and wishes her luck. She sticks her with the GPS tracker and lets Megan walk away.Eyal meets her downstairs and they catch up, but they run outside when they hear gunshots. They go out to find a car driving off and Megan lying dead on the ground. Eyal picks up the satchel and they lead.Iraq, the soldiers stop on the road to Tikrit. They're warned to stay close, but Auggie wants to head down a street he remembers. Downey says it doesn't even look like a bomb went off there. When kid kicks his soccer ball over, Auggie calls him over in Arabic and gives him his Purple Heart."Think that kid could have been the one that talked to you?" Downey asks."They all could have been," Auggie says.ZurichAfter going through the contents of the satchel, Eyal finds no good leads. Annie is upset over Megan's death, but says Megan refused all her offers to help and there was nothing she can do. "Not everybody can be saved, it's not my job," she says.Eyal hopes what he said to her in West Virginia didn't stick, her empathy is one of her greatest talents and she never knows when she might need it. They hear cars pull up outside. Khalid's guys have found them.They're five stories up with no way out. Eyal suggests they climb down to the next balcony. When Annie goes onto the balcony, Eyal locks her out. She watches through the glass as he sticks himself with the GPS tracker and goes to surrender to Khalid's goons.IraqIt's time for them to head home. Auggie hears Downey talking happily to his wife on the phone. He hangs up and they both walk down Hero's Highway to their ride home.AmsterdamAnnie arrives at the train station, following Eyal's GPS signal. She follows it to a park bench next to a canal, but doesn't see Eyal. Instead, she finds a cell phone with the tracker stuck to it under the bench. It rings. She answers it.
Annie answers the ringing cell phone outside the Amsterdam train station. Khalid (Haaz Sleiman) is on the other end and sends her a photo of Eyal with today's newspaper. He's alive and will remain so if Annie gets him the names of the CIA assets in his company. Annie protests that she doesn't know if they have any and she doesn't have access to it.Annie meets with an asset recommended by Eric Barber (Dylan Taylor) back at Langley. She can get Annie access to CIA files, but only from inside the US consulate infirmary, where the computer has access to the web.Annie calls and leaves Auggie a voice mail, saying she's facing a situation and there are a thousand reasons not to proceed, but her gut says she should.Annie walks down the street and is cornered by two men. They jump her and she fights them off, but they get a few good licks in. A shop keeper sees and runs them off.Annie goes to the consul, saying her name is Danielle Brooks and she's been attacked and needs help.In the infirmary, Bob the vice consul sends the nurse away. He wants to know how she got into the country, she says through the Greek islands. He knows the Greek database is notoriously out of date. He says his questions can wait and she can stay there.Henry Wilcox (Gregory Itzin) is released from prison. Arthur is there to meet him with a name, Romi Hadad, the real target of the drone strike.Henry told everyone Hadad had been killed six years ago. He thinks things have been set right. Arthur points out the toll of assets burned and other lives lost.Outside Amsterdam, Khalid has Eyal tied to a chair in his luxury apartment. Eyal has a bandage on his leg where the GPS tracker was removed. Eyal thinks Khalid is desperate, but he points out Eyal is the one working with a spy from a rival agency. Eyal tells Khalid he's betrayed Annie so many times he doesn't even know if she wants to save him.In the middle of the night in the consul, Annie gets up and breaks into the infirmary to access the computer and the CIA database. She uses the drive from the hacker to access the Ansari Company files and gets 16 names, which she downloads.She goes back to her room in the infirmary and is shocked to see Auggie waiting for her in the dark.Joan put him on the first flight out of the Gulf after she heard Annie's voice mail. He tells her to let Mossad get Eyal, but she tells him Eyal quit and that means they're not coming.He asks her if she has feelings for Eyal. She wonders why he keeps asking.He has an idea that doesn't violate agency protocol. "This is a mistake, but at least we'll make it together," he says.At Langley, Arthur brings Joan word of a declassification ceremony to put Jai's name on the wall that Henry made happen. Joan thinks they should do it for Jai and everyone else.Annie meets with the hacker again to get the files she downloaded. "Tell your friend he's got one heck of a right hook," Annie tells her, so we know the asset set up the beat down.Auggie goes to a coffee shop and is greeted by his old friend Joost (Seann Gallagher), who has a small arsenal in back. He says Auggie's request was odd and specialized, then gives Auggie a revolver and box of ammunition.Khalid calls Annie, who won't go with his terms. She instead suggests a crowded public place.Auggie reassures her, telling her to focus on one positive thought, or one thing she loves.Annie heads to the meet in a public square. Auggie waits nearby.Khalid leads Eyal through the market. Annie tells Auggie where to find them and he takes out his cane and walks into the man guarding Eyal, loudly asking for directions to Pier 10. The man shoves Auggie aside.Khalid meets Annie. She coldly tells him the flaw in his plan was counting on her feelings for Eyal. What's in the file is what Eyal is worth to her alive. Khalid opens the file. It's empty.Annie takes out the revolver and shoots Eyal, who falls to the ground.The people in the market scatter and Khalid and one bodyguard chase after Annie as she makes her escape.The other body guard checks on Eyal, who pops up unharmed and tackles him, taking his gun. Eyal flicks the blood packets off his shirt and takes off. He finds Auggie at Pier 10."This is a ridiculous plan," says a relieved Eyal. Auggie agrees.Annie hides from Khalid and his man in a bicycle lot, ducking between the bikes. They don't see her and keep running. But they hear her footsteps above them and follow. They find a bike turned over. Annie runs the other direction.Eyal and Auggie wait for Annie on a boat, but there's a back up plan if she doesn't make it. Auggie says he'd never leave her, neither would Eyal.Annie comes running around the corner with Khalid and his thug on her heels. She tells them to start the boat. She leaps on as they're pulling away from the pier.The thug jumps, too, but Eyal shoots him midair. Khalid is left watching on the pier as they motor away.On the boat, Auggie tells Annie he was worried about her.Arthur calls, wanting to know the status of Khalid. The Saudi government made a deal with the Dutch to allow him to return to Saudi Arabia, where he'll be safe from US prosecution. He leaves on a helicopter in one hour. Annie says she understands.She tells Eyal and Auggie and then concludes the CIA wants her to kill Khalid. Arthur told her exactly where he would be and when. She thinks that's why they sent Auggie, to support her as she cleans up the mess.Auggie argues she's wrong.Annie goes into the boat's hold, takes Eyal's gun and sneaks off the boat.She goes to Eyal's guarded luxury apartment and sneaks in. She creeps through his house finds him upstairs smoking. He goes for his gun but she stops him and takes it."Killing you would be the easiest thing in the world right now, but that doesn't solve anything," she says as she lowers her gun.She says she's there on behalf of Megan. He thinks the CIA killed her."When I tell you who did it, you're going to realize how insignificant you are," she says. She shows him part of the CIA file on her dad's company, the page on the man who killed Megan. It's Khalid's dad's bodyguard.His father (Erick Avari) ordered it.He goes through the file on his father and begins to believe her. "You want a list of the names that betrayed you, look no farther than your father. He's the root of your problem. What you do with that information is up to you," she says, leaving.Eyal and Auggie pick her up outside. She didn't kill Khalid.Annie says good-bye Eyal, who is planning to get on his 40-foot boat in Greece. He invites her to join him, but she wants to get home and put down some roots.He tells her someday they'll be somewhere looking at a sunset, thinking about nothing at all.She says good-bye and he says thank you.Annie and Auggie take the private jet back. Auggie suggests they get a drink when they get back, not the bar. He was thinking some place nicer. They make plans for Friday at 8:00 pm.At Langley, Arthur speaks at the declassification ceremony for Jai. He tells Henry he's sorry for his loss. "No you're not," Henry says.Annie goes to her desk after and finds a letter waiting for her.She goes back to the diner where Jai was killed. Henry is waiting for her.Henry tells her he's there to try to make things right. He says it's about Arthur and Joan.He asks why she didn't kill Khalid in Amsterdam."I gave Khalid all the information he needs to kill his father, or force his father to kill him. Either way we get a piece off the game board and cause havoc in their ranks, and it can't be traced back to the agency," she says.He commends her on her spycraft and hands her a file. "I knew you were the right person for this," she says.Without looking at it, she says she won't go against Joan and Arthur. He urges her to take a look. She opens it and is stunned. "I'm in," she says.She takes the file home and goes over it with a beer late at night. Auggie comes to her place. It's not Friday.He tells her today's ceremony got him thinking about their lives and what they do. He tells her timing is everything and he wanted to talk now. She asks about what and he reaches for her. He kisses her."I'm glad we're having his talk," she says. They get back to kissing.
16 Jul 2013Description ▼
Over the phone, Auggie frantically tries to talk Annie out of doing whatever she's about to do, saying it's Henry Wilcox's fault. She rides an elevator up. "I never should have read you in that morning in bed, I should have just said 'I love you'," she says."I love you, too....Come home," he says. "I can't, it's too late for heart to hearts, good-bye Auggie," she says, hanging up the phone. The elevator doors open and Annie pulls her gun. A man (Hill Harper) is waiting for her with two guns, he aims at her. A shot is fired. 10 Weeks Earlier Annie and Auggie make love at her place. After, she tells him about meeting with Henry the night before. He gave her financial records on Arthur that indicate he might be funneling money to the ALC terror group in Colombia.He also showed her pictures of Arthur meeting with a woman in DC, and he has photos of the same woman meeting with the ALC terrorist code named "Puma." Auggie opened the account for Arthur using one of his aliases. Flashback to the night before. Henry predicts that tomorrow the DO will begin a routine investigation into Auggie's security clearance, within a week Arthur will resign and within a few months everything will blow open. Back at Annie's place the next morning, Annie resolves to travel to Colombia and follow the money to prove Henry wrong. At work, Annie and Auggie are basking in their afterglows when men from the DO's office come to review Auggie's security clearance, just like Henry predicted. They're taking all of his equipment and downgrading his security clearance. They go outside and Annie reiterates her argument for going to Colombia. Auggie assures her everything will work out, but he doesn't want to go to Arthur or Joan, in case what Henry is saying is true. He argues that Henry Wilcox thrives on creating confusion and driving wedges between people. Annie leaves a note for Auggie with Eric Barber. She's going to the bank, i.e. Colombia. ColombiaAnnie walks by the man from the opening, he follows her. Annie waits outside Banco Medellin, then approaches an assistant bank manager. She wants info on an account and has looked into him for leverage. She knows about his wife and two girlfriends. She makes plans to meet him later. Auggie calls Annie, he's not mad she went to Colombia. In fact, he's there, waiting for her at her hotel. Back at Langley, Joan sees that Annie and Auggie are both gone at the same time and she remembers pulling the same thing with Arthur in the beginning of their relationship. She thinks they're dating, and seems really happy about it. She tells Arthur they're in Colombia. In Colombia, Annie and Auggie wait for the assistant bank manager at the zoo. He says they have to be as honest as possible to make the relationship work. Annie sees the manager and follows him, but loses sight of him. The round a corner and she sees him dead on the ground. Another man creeps up on them, but before they can react, a shot rings out. It's the same mystery man. "I strongly suggest you come with me," he says. Later, over drinks, he introduces himself as Calder Michaels, the station chief in Medellin, the youngest ever in South America. He's extremely ambitious and angry they didn't let him know that they'd be in Colombia or what they're up to. He metaphorically pees everywhere to mark his territory. When he leaves, they figure Michaels won't tell Langley what they're up to because he won't want to risk angering someone with a higher security clearance. Back in Langley, Arthur takes a cell phone out of a secret drawer to call someone and ask the status of Annie and Auggie. Arthur calls Joan and says he's swamped with work, canceling their weekend away. Joan is at a doctor's office. She gets off the phone and gets news: She's pregnant. Outside the bank in Colombia the next day, Annie and Auggie wait to follow the courier. Auggie is tapped into the bank account and gets an alert when the transfer goes through. Annie goes inside and puts a bug by a bank window. Auggie gets an alert that the money is being withdrawn, Annie follows the man walking out. Annie and Auggie follow the man through the streets of Colombia, when he rounds a corner Annie only has half a second to register that he's turned on them with a gun. He shoots, hitting Auggie in the shoulder. Annie helps him, but before they get far, masked men with semi-automatic weapons pull up in a truck, aiming at them. They force them to an apartment, where more men with guns await. A man warns them to be careful who they follow. He looks at Auggie's wound, then sterilizes a knife over the stove and in alcohol then gives Auggie a spoon to bite down on. The man digs into Auggie's shoulder and gets the bullet out. "What were you doing trying to access my accounts?" he asks.He's "the Puma," but his name is Teo Brava. Annie says they have a friend in common, but he tells them to leave Colombia. He writes directions on a piece of paper and gives it to Annie. Outside, Auggie confirms he's the man he opened the account for. Annie looks at the piece of paper, it says: "Meet me here at 6 p.m." Back in DC, Joan tries to break her news to Arthur over dinner, but he leaves to take a call. Henry Wilcox comes over to Joan and tells her it would have been Jai's birthday. He brings her a drink made with Colombia rum. Back in their hotel room, Annie stitches up Auggie. He thinks Annie likes the idea of going toe to toe with Henry Wilcox. He suggests they skip the meet and go home. She agrees. They're leaving the hotel when Calder Michaels stops them in the lobby. Annie excuses herself to get something from her room, but sneaks out the back. Calder throws more bluster Auggie's way and sort of offers to help. Back in the restaurant, Joan notes how odd it was for Henry to show up. She mentions the Colombian rum. Back in Colombia, Annie meets up with Teo. Before they can start talking, men speed by on a motorcycle and open fire. They duck behind a car. "You tell Arthur Campbell that the blood's on his hands, not mine. He made promises to me, he said he'd be there for me... I'm done with him." Teo says the account is burned so he doesn't need Arthur, but won't give Annie any answers. Calder leads Auggie toward the gunfire. He watches them hug hello and then tells them their game in Colombia is over. Arthur meets with the woman from Henry's photos."The situation has changed, there's too many eyes on us, we need to end this," he says.She doesn't like it, but he says she of all people should understand. Calder leads Annie and Auggie to the airport. On the flight home, Annie apologizes for leaving Auggie with Calder.Auggie tells Annie that Teo is Arthur's son, from when he was stationed in Cartagena in the Navy. He didn't want to tell Annie until he was sure, but hearing Teo's voice confirmed it. He doesn't think Joan knows. Annie understands, secrets are part of the job. Annie says they have to tell Arthur about their trip and about them. He agrees. Back in DC, Auggie and Arthur meet on the Mall. He asks Arthur's permission to read Annie in on everything. Arthur says he can't and Auggie knows it. Arthur asks if Auggie loves Annie and he says he does. Arthur reminds Auggie that Auggie is keeping secrets, too. At Langley, Annie and Auggie go to officially give word of their relationship, but everyone is filling into the auditorium. Arthur announces that the press is about to reveal he's had an affair, so he's resigning, effective immediately. Joan is nowhere to be found.

Annie returns home from work and sees the door to Danielle's house is open. She goes in with her gun drawn and finds Arthur Campbell waiting for her in her kitchen.She shows him the file from Henry Wilcox gave her. The woman in the photos is Theresa Hamilton, a cut out. He tells her Teo was conceived on his first overseas tour, with a woman named Anna Sophia. He didn't know she was pregnant when he left, and now he wishes he'd proposed then. Her parents didn't approve of him and cut him off when she died. Joan doesn't know about Teo. They had challenges conceiving and he didn't want her to know how much he enjoyed being a father. Arthur tells Annie to find out if Henry knows Teo's his son and to tell him Athur's funding the Puma to build some trust. Annie meets withHenry the next day. When he asks if she was able to determine the extent of Arthur's relationship with Teo, she thinks he doesn't know he's Arthur's son.Henry knows Auggie went with her to Colombia. He won't give her any more information. After the meeting she sees Henry on a pay phone and reports to Arthur that the "fish has taken the bait." She calls Auggie to trace the phone and tells him what she's up to. She follows him down into the Metro. At Langley, Joan feels everyone's pity stares following Arthur's news. Her NA sponsor Seth drops by to offer support and awkwardly ask her to dinner. She demurs. Auggie traced Henry's call to Langley's main switchboard. She follows Arthur down onto the train. Joan comes to Auggie for a favor. Ordinarily, it'd be her job to look into a CIA officer's affair to ensure there were no security breeches, but she can't because it's Arthur. And he's refusing to say who his mistress is on the grounds that she's covert. Joan remembers their dinner date the other night and is sure she saw a second cell phone on him. She asks Auggie to look into it off the record. Annie follows Henry off the train, up to a building where he gets on an elevator. He goes to Solstar Oil's office and checks in at the front desk. Annie calls Auggie who tells her Solstar pumps oil in Colombia -- or did until the Puma's terrorist group bombed their pipeline. Annie taps into their audio mainframe and tapes sketchy transmissions. She takes the recording to Arthur and Auggie. Arthur listens and thinks Henry knows Teo is his son. There's a voice they can't ID that they think is an agent. Auggie wants to tell Joan what's going on. He's figured out that Arthur made up the affair to protect Joan. He only needs his story to hold up til tomorrow, after Joan passes her polygraph. When Annie leaves the room, Auggie argues for telling Annie everything. "From my vantage point it looks like you want her to find out so you don't have to carry the weight. Sack up," Arthur says. Later, at Auggie's place, Annie asks why he's upset. Auggie says he doesn't like having to lie, to Joan or to anyone. Annie assures him they're not Joan and Arthur and don't have to fall into those traps. The next day at Langley, Joan checks in with Auggie, who says he didn't find anything from Arthur's second phone. He lies and says he didn't find anything. Then she says one day they're going to talk about what he was doing in Colombia with Annie. Joan is on her way to her polygraph when morning sickness hits. Annie is in the bathroom and sees her throw up. Annie guesses she's pregnant. Joan does her polygraph. Annie reports to Auggie that Salazar is headed to Colombia for a conference his week All Auggie knows about their mystery voice is that he can say good afternoon in Spanish. Seth tells Joan she's aced her polygraph and she's in line for Arthur's job. She takes him up on his earlier dinner offer of Yucatan food. He says good night in Spanish as he leaves. Auggie hears. They report back to Arthur. They know Seth leaked to Henry. He and Seth were both dating Joan at the same time early on.Annie wants to search Seth's place while he's out with Joan. They have to convince Arthur to wait to come clean to Joan until after her dinner, even though he worries about her going out with an ex. Later that night, Annie breaks into Seth's. He has a framed picture of him with Joan. Joan starts to get ready for her evening out, but has a change of heart. She apologizes to Seth when he gets there. He's understanding and heads home. "I can't comprehend anyone ever taking you for granted," he says.He leaves. Back at his house, Annie goes through his files. She sees a flash drive on his desk, but hears him come home and has to hide in the closet. She moves some books as she hides. Seth comes in on the phone, saying he'll bring it to the person tonight. Annie sees the bookend about to fall and catches it. She thinks she's safe, but Seth saw her and attacks.They fight all the way down the stars, with her knocking over furniture to get free. She gets to her car and drives off. Seth grabs a baseball bat and follows. He cuts her off and smashes in her driver side window. She drives to drive off, but he gets a hold of her and pulls her out of the car. He starts to choke her, but she's able to throw him off and over the side of a bridge. He hangs on for a second then falls into the water below, seemingly dead. Joan goes to see Arthur, slapping him hello. She has figured out that the affair was fake and he kept her in the dark so she's pass her polygraph. He tells her about Teo. She tells him she's pregnant. At Auggie's place, they figure they've got 48 hours before Langley starts looking into Seth's death.Henry texts, asking for a meeting. The next day, Henry tells Annie that he's heard the ALC is planning an attack on American interests. He wants her to go to Colombia and stop him."Are you asking me to kill him?""You've already told me twice that you are in, without reservation. Time to back those words up, Ms. Walker," Henry says.

30 Jul 2013Description ▼
Annie meets with Arthur, Deep Throat-style, in a parking garage. She asks where Joan stands on things. He's told her about Teo. Which is good, because Annie invited Joan to the meeting; she arrives. Annie shows them the file from Henry about the bomb threat from ALC, Teo's group.Arthur confesses that there's more to the story: Teo is a double agent inside ALC. The group was responsible for his mother's death years ago, so Arthur trained him and he infiltrated the group, killing one of their members to prove himself. But Arthur stopped hearing from his regularly, so there's a possibility he's gone rogue.Arthur thinks he's working his cover, but Joan isn't so sure. Arthur tells Annie to exfiltrate Teo to their safe house in Panama, Arthur will meet her there. Joan says she'll keep Teo separate from the other investigation, but Annie has to act on any real bomb threats. She gives them 48 hours. At home with Auggie, he worries Arthur is asking too much of her. He gives her a prototype for a phone he invented that's totally untraceable. He volunteers to talk to Joan about Seth's death. She packed his favorite t-shirt. In Medellin, Colombia, Annie contacts Teo through a courier who brings a package with flowers on it to a door and leaves it there. Back in DC, Joan faces the Senate Intelligence Committee. Senator Pierson implies that Joan got where she is only thanks to Arthur. Then she asks why they should trust Joan to find threats against the country when Joan didn't even know her husband was cheating on her. Joan can't defend herself without revealing that Arthur's "affair" was a cover. In the hall, Joan runs into Eric, another candidate for the DCS job. They exchange good wishes. Auggie waits for her. They take a walk and Auggie tells Joan that Seth Newman was a mole for Henry and Annie had to defend herself against him. They think his body is somewhere in the Potomac. Joan takes it well. Joan realizes someone needs to go sanitize Seth's place and they can't rely on a CIA cleaner who might be in bed with Henry. Annie can't, Auggie can't, Joan has to do it. In Colombia, Teo finds Annie after a dead drop. He returns the package to her -- it's an Agency exfil package. She tells him they know about the bomb threat and he needs to come in. He throws the package to the ground and disappears, but Annie has managed to get a GPS tracker on him. Annie checks in with Auggie. Joan puts on gloves and breaks into Seth's place. She begins repairing all the damage from his fight with Annie, and scrubbing out the blood stains. She goes to his hidden wall safe and guesses the code on the third try. It's full of cash and files and a gun. There's a file on Senator Pierson. She takes the framed picture Seth had of the two of them, then she packs up and leaves. Auggie traces Teo to the jungle with a dozen other people. Annie's not going in alone -- she goes to Calder Matthews, the Medellin bureau chief who's not her biggest fan. She'll give him the location of the ALC stronghold as long as she gets Teo. He agrees. In DC, Auggie goes to Arthur, angry that Annie is taking a risk for him. He's also upset that Arthur wouldn't let him tell Annie everything, then he told her himself. Arthur warns him again about dating a spy and the risks of having to keep secrets in a relationship. Annie and Calder hike through the jungle with a team, looking for Teo and the ALC. She reiterates she wants Teo taken alive. They surround the camp. A helicopter closes in from above and they lay down cover fire as operators repel from above. The terrorists run as the CIA team closes in on them and takes them down. Several terrorists are killed. They find a stockpile of bomb materials. Calder gets to Teo before Annie does and she has to stop him from shooting him. Calder takes Teo into custody. At a CIA Black Site in Colombia, Calder strings up Teo and interrogates him about the bomb target. He beats him. Annie watches, unable to say anything. When Calder gets ready to electrocute Teo, Annie intervenes, asking to talk with Teo alone. When they're alone, Annie tells him Arthur told him about his mission and if he tells her the target, she can help him. He says he has no idea what she's talking about, then kicks her over and tells her to kill him or get out. Annie calls Joan and describes him as "combative." Joan authorizes extraordinary measures. She also tells Annie she knows about Seth and she has her support. Annie finds a flyer in the warehouse that interests her. She's about to go back in to Teo when she sees him escaping. She runs after him, with Calder close behind her. Teo gets away. Calder arms up his men and prepares to go after Teo, but Annie stops him, saying she knows what the target is. The brochure is for Jardin National hotel, where Solstar executives are arriving today to meet. Calder calls in his bomb squad. "I so do not trust your ass," Calder tells her. Back in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Joan prepares to make her closing statement. She hands out prepared materials. There are compromising photos in the packet she hands to Senator Pierson, whose entire demeanor changes after looking at the images. Unsteadily, she recuses herself. (We don't see who is pictured, only that they involve naked people in bed.) In Colombia, Calder's teams swarm the hotel. Annie eyes the surrounding buildings, spots a quick glint and goes into one with a good vantage point, finding Teo setting up a shot with a sniper rifle. She closes in on him with her gun drawn. He apologizes for kicking her, saying CIA black sites are wired and he couldn't risk blowing his cover. But he won't put down his rifle, saying people will die if he does. He asks her to trust him. Annie has to decide whether o shoot him or let him shoot. He shoots a valet, then explains he's one of ALC's top guys. Down on the ground, Calder finds the dead man was wired with explosives. Annie suggests Teo stick with ALC as they expand. She gives him her untraceable cell phone. She wants real intel in exchange for letting him go. He gives her the names of two Chinese nationals in DC who move the money for the guy he just shot. Annie joins Calder on the ground but doesn't tell him she found Teo and that he killed the bomber. Calder is highly suspicious that the bomber just happened to be shot dead. Annie thanks him and prepares to leave the country. The gifts pour in for Joan, including one from Henry Wilcox. Joan disdainfully puts it in the trash. Annie joins Arthur. He's disappointed Teo isn't with her, but she assures him Teo is still working his mission. Annie buys a new cell phone and calls Auggie. She flies home and makes it back to Auggie's waiting arms.

5Here Comes Your Man
13 Aug 2013Description ▼
Back in the elevator from the beginning of the season. Annie gets off the phone with Auggie, the doors to the elevator open and she and Calder Michaels face each other down with guns drawn. He fires first, she goes down. He radios someone to report that "Operative Walker is dead." It's Henry Wilcox. Six Weeks Earlier Annie wakes up to hear Auggie coming home. He just had drinks with Amy Jacobs, a legislative director for Senator Pierson who used to work in the DPD. He was looking into Calder. Amy told him that Pierson has a tight relationship with Henry Wilcox and they talked two days ago about Calder. They think Calder is Henry's new mole. At Langley the next day, Calder Michaels addresses the troops, promising he's getting rid of red tape for vertical communication that will push them out of their comfort zone. He's planning to meet with everyone one on one to "evaluate your job efficiency." He promises egos will be bruised. "Let's be smarter and more aggressive than our enemies," he says. Later, he tells Auggie that he got outplayed on the Chens. Auggie is planning to analyze Wendy's SIM card, but Calder already did it and found a wire transfer to a Greek arms dealer named Dion Stavros. He takes full credit for finding it even though Annie got the card. Two months ago Stavros escaped from the Spanish police and now he's in Vienna. Calder is sending Annie to Vienna with a new cover as an importer-exporter that plays off her Smithsonian cover. When CNI (Spanish intelligence) raided Stavros' apartment, they confiscated his art collection. It was reported that it was stolen from lock-up, but in fact CNI is getting it to Annie to use to approach Stavros. Calder tells them that he's Annie's new handler because they're having a sexual relationship and it's not safe. He also tells them not to communicate on this mission because it could lead to "emotional decisions."Annie's flight leaves in three hours. In the parking lot, Annie is inclined to go silent for the time being so that Calder will trust them. Auggie worries it's a trap. In Vienna, Annie spends the day shopping to sell her high end cover. Calder calls. He left her a Faberge egg that belongs to Stavros that he wants her to use to approach him at the opera tonight. Annie is worried she's not comfortable with her cover yet, but Calder says they have intel that Stavros has missiles he has to move quickly, so they're moving up the timeline. Auggie visits his old friend Tyler at the State Department, hoping for more background on Stavros. He learns he was a CIA asset until '09 and was feeding them intel on the uprising in Niger. He puts the info on a flash drive. Arthur and Joan meet for lunch. She tells him about the Pierson-Wilcox link. Arthur wants to find a way to learn what Henry's doing before he does it. Auggie goes for a walk in the woods, up to something. He calls Annie and tells her that Stavros was Henry's asset. Annie's confident she can handle things. At Langley, Calder sees Auggie return and wonders where he's been. He mentions a long range biometric project named Hummingbird that Auggie wanted to work on. It didn't get approved because DST was working on something similar. Calder approves it, then tells Auggie if he finds out he's calling Annie they'll have some real problems. In Vienna, Annie goes to the opera. She looks up info on the woman Stavros is with and uses it as an excuse to approach them. She shows off her knowledge of opera and impresses him. He asks her to go to another next week, trying to convince her to stay in town. She says it depends on her business. Back in their seats, Stavros gets the egg she left for him. After the opera, Stavros and Annie sniff each other out. He thinks she's Interpol or CNI. She lets on she has all his stuff. He offers $300,000, but she asks $500K and tells him to meet tomorrow. Calder calls her to check in. He likes the way the mission is going, but warns her he'll transfer Auggie out of the DPD if they talk again. The next day, Annie waits for Stavros under a bridge. He shows up with muscle and a briefcase full of cash. She calls for the truck. Annie suggests they work together, that she move things for him without detection. In response, his muscle pulls a gun. He looked into Annie and found her Smithsonian history, but is worried that no one he knows has heard of her as an importer-exporter. She stares down the gun and tells him one of his paintings, worth $500K, isn't in the truck and he'll never get it if he kills her. He gives her 24 hours to find a buyer for his missile launchers or he'll kill her. Annie calls Calder, who says he knows an agent who can buy the launchers, Tarel Birkin. At work, Auggie gets a text that says "I hear the woods are nice this time of day," then a request for info on Birkin.Auggie steps out to call Annie. He tells her that Tarel is very inexperienced. He suggests she get out Vienna. Annie decides to go ahead with the op. Back at Langley, Auggie goes to Calder and tells her he wants in on the mission, revealing he spoke to Annie against orders. He loudly says that Calder is putting her life at risk. In Vienna, Tarel arrives. Annie quizzes him on his cover as a Kurdish terrorist. He flubs a couple answers and Annie tells him her 24 hours are up, she's aborting the mission. Annie goes outside to hail a cab and sees a goon coming at her with a gun. She runs through the streets of Vienna with him on her heels. He corners her in an alley, but she's able to kick his gun away. She fights with him, but he's much bigger and stronger and gets the upper hand. He throws her to the ground. A man shows up and apologizes for being late. It's Teo Braga. Annie rolls with it and tells the goon to tell his boss to be a little less paranoid, the buyer is here.Auggie called Teo. Back in the hotel room, Teo says he was "nearby" when Auggie called. Annie meets with Stavros, who is impressed she was able to set him up with Teo, the Puma. She asks for his business going forward. He promises her the number of a friend in Africa when they're done. Teo joins them. After Teo hands over his payment to Stavros, he takes out a gun and shoots Stavros and his goon dead. Teo says he couldn't let Stavros sell weapons to the ALC.He takes out his cell phone and smashes it, then leaves. Back at Langley, Annie leaves Teo out of her story to Calder. She says Stavros' goons took her to the apartment and she killed them in self defense. She's surprised to learn there were only 20 missile launchers, not 25. Calder informs her he's keeping her in her cover, she'll be moving in to a new apartment. Later, at Auggie's, she's not sure if it was a trap or not. Auggie thinks Henry is testing them. Annie gets a text from Henry, who knows she was in Vienna at the opera at "La Traviata," which, he informs her pointedly, translates to "the woman who strayed." He tells her Seth Newman was found dead (which she knows because she killed him) and the FBI is on it. Henry seems to think she did it. Henry walks away into the night. A woman in what looks like a brown wig follows him.
6Space (I Believe In)
20 Aug 2013Description ▼
It's pouring in DC when Joan, Annie and Auggie meet secretively to discuss how to get out of the Seth Newman mess. With the FBI handling the case, they've already lost control, and they can't take it to DCI because they don't yet have proof that Seth was a mole working for Henry Wilcox. Joan suggests she cry national security to attempt to get at the FBI's evidence, hopefully including a flash drive Annie saw on Seth. But they have to do it without alerting Calder Michaels, who they now assume is working with Henry. Joan can put Annie into the investigation as the CIA liaison, but she's on her own getting the flash drive. Annie reports to FBI HQ to begin work on the case and runs into her old frenemy Agent Vincent Rossabi. He's not in a friendly mood and thinks if she's there, there must be more to the case. He's not going anywhere. He takes her down to the morgue and shows her Seth's body. Signs of a struggle mean they're investigating it as a homicide. She asks about personal effects, but a flash drive isn't among them. Then Rossabi drops the bombshell: there was skin under his fingernails. It's already been sent to the lab. Annie calls Auggie with the bad news. He tells her not to panic, thinking they have a few weeks until the results come back. Calder visit Joan, irked that she appointed Annie liaison, which he says should have been his call. He insinuates Joan's judgment is clouded on the issue based on her past relationship with Seth, which isn't a secret. In the car, Rossabi tells Annie that using water flow charts and calculating the height from which Seth fell, they were able to back track where he died. He drives her to the bridge where Seth died, which is crawling with forensic teams. She remembers Seth going over the side and trying to grab for him as he fell. Rossabi shows Annie a drop of blood on the cement railing, which he thinks is from the victim. Rossabi gets a call. They head to Seth's apartment, which doesn't have a single fingerprint, not even Seth's. Rossabi is suspicious. Rossabi asks for the DNA results to be fast tracked. Outside a tech brings him Seth's jacket, which was fished out of the river. The flash drive was in the pocket. Annie watches as it's taken away to FBI evidence. Later that night at Auggie's, Annie is angry at how clean the apartment was -- not Joan's doing. Henry sent someone in after to sterilize it, which looks completely suspicious. Annie finds a hard drive to match Seth's and Auggie puts some files on it then soaks it in Potomac river water. She tells him the bad news, that they only have 48 hours. Auggie gets started trying to hack into the FBI servers to alter the results. Annie gets a call from Henry Wilcox. She meets him at the headquarters of soon-to-be Lexington Global Consulting and Risk Management, his new endeavor to train elite spies. He invites Annie to join him. When she declines, he tells her she's already done work for Lexington, in Colombia. He gives her a check. He asks her to get the flash drive, but won't tell her why. Annie brings evidence to be entered into the FBI evidence room, but an agent offers to do it for her. She insists on going with her to watch, then fakes a phone call to get the other agent out of the room. She's about to make the flash drive switch when Rossabi finds her. She takes the drive out to confiscate it, but Rossabi takes it back and says he's taking it to Calder Michaels personally, at Calder's request. At Langley, Rossabi overdoes his appreciation for Calder's offer of cooperation, to make a point to Annie. When Joan joins them, he mentions pointedly that she's been dodging his calls and Calder takes note. Rossabi has a few questions for Joan for his investigation and puts Joan on the spot, asking Calder and Annie to sit in. They checked Seth's car's GPS and Rossabi asks why he was at Joan's house three weeks ago. She tells him about their canceled dinner plans. Then Rossabi brings up them both being in Narcotics Anonymous, which is news to Annie. Joan says Seth was doing well with recovery and Annie ends the interview. Later, Auggie worries about Calder having the flash drive -- but Annie gives him the real thing, obtained with sleight of hand. That night at home, Auggie tries to hack the drive, but it's incredibly complex and slow. So far all he has is a corner of a picture, which looks likes a jungle somewhere. Annie gets anxious about the DNA results. She wonders if she should take Henry's money to pretend to work for him. Auggie's against it. Annie suggests they pull Henry's car GPS to see if they can prove he met up with Seth. To get him away from his car Annie calls Rossabi with phone records and points out Henry's name. That night at Henry's new HQ, Annie tells Henry that tech ops has his flash drive. She "warns" him that he's going to be called in for questioning.He doesn't buy it. "You're here out of self interest, scared I'll turn you over to the FBI. Don't worry, your secret is safe with me," he tells her. The next day, Annie watches Henry park his car on a surface street outside the FBI HQ. She calls Auggie. Barber and another guy pull up and tow Henry's car to get at the GPS. Inside, Annie and Henry pretend not to know each other for Rossabi's benefit.Henry says Seth gave him legal advice. Seth's last call was to Henry."I don't think he expected it to be his last," Henry says. Annie pulls Rossabi into the hall to try to get him to press Henry more, stalling for time. Rossabi doesn't bite. Auggie doesn't have Henry's car back in place as Henry is leaving the building, but it's waiting for him when he gets back outside. After Henry leaves, Rossabi accuses Annie of stalling. But before he can press her more, he gets word someone just used one of Seth's credit cards to buy pizza. They drive to Marlon Higgins address. Rossabi finds it weird it took him three weeks to use the card. When they reach the apartment, Marlon Higgins sees them and runs. They search his apartment. He runs into Rossabi and tackles Annie. He gets a gun and Annie dives for cover as he shoots. Rossabi tackles him and the force of the hit propels both men out a window and off the second story onto a parked car below. Rossabi lands on top of Higgins. Annie watches with a mixture of shock and relief as Rossabi rolls over, alive. After he is patched up, he insists to Annie that there's no way the junkie he just landed on top of was responsible for Seth's death and clean-up. Annie insists it fits. He thinks the CIA is behind it and is waiting for the DNA results to confirm it. Back at Langley, Auggie wasn't able to hack the FBI to change the results. Nothing in Henry's car's GPS matched Seth's, but Auggie found a dozen trips to parkland in Virginia. Annie and Auggie head out there. Annie ignores Rossabi's call. He leaves her a message telling her he found her number in Henry's phone records.Rossabi visits Lexington HQ. He accuses Henry of colluding with Annie."I hear you're a man of honor, Vince. May I call you Vince?" Henry says."No.""Have a seat, Vince. We have a lot to talk about." Joan calls Calder on the carpet for going against her orders and interfering with the investigation. She knows he's the only way Rossabi could have known about her being in NA. "Dig too deep in this building, Mr. Michaels, and you're only going to bury yourself," she says. He mentions her saying Annie had a great relationship with the FBI and Rossabi saying otherwise."You're choosing sides, Joan. I hope you choose wisely," he says. Annie and Auggie arrive at a wooded meadow with a river. There's nothing there. But Annie sees an old Camp Hillcrest sign, where Henry took Jai as a boy. She thinks he was paying his respects. Rossabi calls for the fifth time in 20 minutes. Annie assumes the results are in. She visits Rossabi at the FBI. He tells her the skin under Seth's nails matched Marlon Higgins. He was a dealer, Seth was a junkie, it adds up just like she said it would. He mentions her friends in low places, disgusted with her and himself. Annie visits Lexington and storms into Henry's office. He convinced Rossabi to change the results and says he's surprised Auggie didn't fix them for her. Henry used Rossabi's alcoholic past against him. "Any person can be influenced, turned completely, by the contents of a single piece of paper. The only trick is finding the right piece of paper," he says.Annie is upset, calling Rossabi a good man. "Is that what this is about, getting me in to trouble so only you can save me?""You needed to see what I'm capable of," he says.She asks why he's dragging her down with him.He gives her one last chance, which she turns down.She tells him whatever he's doing won't bring Jai back.She has the flash drive and is going to take him down. He tells her to ask Auggie about his ex, Helen Hansen, who is supposedly dead. He suggests she's not and that Auggie has spoken to her recently. "You've chosen the wrong side Ms. Walker, now you're going to burn with them," he says.

Annie returns to home to her cover apartment, empty and undecorated. She debates calling Auggie.There's a knock at her door. It's Auggie. He has their next mission, based on his photo of Henry in the jungle. He wants to keeping working together.He shows her the CCTV feed from Edinburgh he accessed using Project Hummingbird, giving him access to encrypted systems he could never access before. She's proud of him. He's located Teo and wants to use Teo to get Eduardo to talk about why Henry was in the jungle.She agrees. Lauriston Castle, Edinburgh, Scotland From Langley, Auggie watches surveillance at the castle and relays Teo's movements to Annie. Annie follows him inside the castle but doesn't see him. Surveillance finds him in the tunnels. Annie finds a secret door and follows, even though something doesn't feel right. She walks through the dark tunnel and sees a crawl space. Teo comes out in a stable and Annie is there waiting for him. He says he's following a lead about which port the missiles are being smuggled out of. Annie asks Teo to talk to Eduardo about Henry. He's still bitter at Arthur, his father, but Annie tries to convince him Arthur's looking out for him. Back at Langley, Calder Michaels has surveillance photos of Annie with Teo in Vienna. He brings them to Joan in a snit and wants to open an investigation into Annie. She warns him that's a serious step and says she'll handle it. Calder isn't satisfied and wants to investigate Teo by interviewing Eduardo. Joan says he's becoming too focused on Annie and says right there that she's transferring her out of his department so he can focus on other things. Jefferson National Forest, Millboro, Va. Annie brings Teo to see Arthur. Teo is angry and thinks Arthur sent Annie and Auggie to find him, even though they went to Colombia on their own. "You're the worst mistake my mother ever made," Teo tells Arthur.Arthur tries to convince Teo he just wants to help, but Teo doesn't want him in his life. "It's too late, you made me a spy and I have a mission," Teo says. Arthur wishes Annie luck on their mission tomorrow. Grey Owl Motel, Boones Mill, Va. Annie and Teo hole up in a cut rate motel. He talks to her about the difficulties of doing deep cover with ALC and becoming brothers with the men he is spying on. Sometimes he wishes he could save them all. And then it's time for her to hit him, he wants her to make it look real. Before she can, there's a knock at the door. It's Joan. She brought the signed letter from the DCS they'll need to transfer Eduardo. Joan tries to convince Teo that Arthur was trying to protect him. She tells him he has a place at the agency if he wants it. He agrees to talk to her about it some time. Outside, Joan tells Annie she transferred her out of the DPD and out from Calder's clearance. Inside, Annie gives Teo the black eye he wants to sell their story. Back at Langley, Calder watches the footage of Annie with Teo. He tries to pull up Eduardo Vargas' file but is denied access. He calls his old friend Martina in the CIA's Bogota office to find where Eduardo is being held. She promises to get back to him. The next day, Annie drives Teo to a barn out in the woods. He's dressed in a prisoner's orange jumpsuit. She gets in a transfer van that had the keys left in it and drives to a secret, heavily guarded CIA holding site out in the woods. She tells them she's taking Eduardo to a holding facility in Jasper, Indiana.The guards load Eduardo into her transfer van. A helicopter is landing as Annie reaches the gate. Calder gets out. He's asks to speak to the person in charge. Another guard takes Annie's paperwork to go over it yet again. She nervously watches Calder in her rearview.The gate lifts and she drives off. Calder learns Joan transferred Eduardo and he just missed him.Annie stops to pick up Teo and leaves the two men in the back together. She listens in. Eduardo insists he told them nothing, but Teo says he heard he made a deal with a gringo. Eduardo mentions Henry Wilcox and says he's been giving them money and asked for missiles. He wants to destroy the US Embassy in Bogota. Annie sends a text with the info and passes a black SUV as she drives down back roads.Eduardo tells Teo he trusted Henry because he funded some of their best missions, including the bombing at the Plaza de Turbaco, where Teo's mother died. Suddenly, the black SUV is on Annie's tail and pulls up behind, ramming her transfer van. She pulls out her gun and tries to run the SUV off the road as Eduardo and Teo get bashed around in the back. The SUV knocks the van off the road and it tumbles down an embankment. Annie is dazed but frees herself and grabs her gun. She opens the back and tries to uncuff Teo. The engine is smoking as she races to uncuff him. She frees him and tells Teo to uncuff Eduardo while she covers him. A man fires at Annie from above on the road, trying to hit the gas pouring from the van. Eduardo sees that Teo knows Annie and calls him a traitor, kicking him. Teo won't leave without Eduardo, wanting answers about the bombing at the Plaza de Turbaco. Annie yells at Teo to get out and he finally does. They run for cover, leaving Eduardo cuffed inside. The assassin firing at them finally hits the van and it burst into flames. Annie has never seen the man before. Teo is ready to go hunt down Henry Wilcox. Annie tries to convince him to come with her, pointing out that if he does that he'll become the terrorist Henry wants him to be and he'll never be able to work legitimately for the CIA. Teo can't listen to reason and when Calder and guards pull up on the scene Annie can't hide from them and stop Teo.He leaves, telling her to tell Arthur he's sorry. Annie calls Joan as she runs away. Joan sends someone for her. Annie returns home to her cover apartment to find it picked apart, even her wall safe is missing. She goes to Auggie's. "There's no time to explain, they're going to be here any minute," she says. She tells him to clear his electronics. She knows a CIA sweep team ransacked her apartment. Calder pulls up outside with a team of men.Auggie hurries Annie to leave, saying he'll be fine. "I think Helen was wrong. We made the wrong choice," he says. Annie understands he means that he thinks they can be spies and be together.She kisses him and goes out the back as Calder bangs on his door. Calder comes in with men with boxes to get all his electronics. He says he's investigating Annie, so he's looking to Auggie for answers. When Auggie won't tell him where his safe is, he starts tearing the walls down. They find the safe. Seth Newman's flash drive is inside. They take Auggie in.

Joan and Arthur meet Annie in an airport hangar. She's on her way to Copenhagen on the trail of Teo Braga, who's on the trail of Henry Wilcox. Joan promises to look into whatever Calder Michaels is up to with Auggie. Arthur asks her to make sure that Teo knows he didn't know anything about Henry's involvement in the bombing of the Plaza de Turbaco, the bombing that killed Teo's mom, even though Arthur worked for Henry at the time. On the flight, Annie reviews Henry's itinerary, her cover and loads her gun. In Copenhagen, Henry arrives for his conference. Teo checks in under an alias. At Langley, Calder is nowhere to be found. He's holding Auggie off-site. He brings Auggie water and sunflower seeds and gives him back his cane, telling him he's free to leave. If he does, Calder will call the FBI, NSA and DNI office, per protocol given that he found the drive. He tells Auggie what he knows about Annie's involvement, including that an ALC operative just died in her custody while she was transporting him. He wants to know where Annie is, what Teo is planning to do with the missiles and what's on the flash drive. Annie arrives at the conference in Copenhagen and tracks down Henry and the Solstar Energy people. Arthur goes to visit a woman at riding stables. She's Bianca and he's hoping she'll act as his attorney, he wants to confess his sins. In Copenhagen, Annie goes out onto a plaza where Henry and the Solstar men are posing for a photo op. On a balcony above, Teo sets up a sniper rifle. Annie looks for the best vantage point and sees Teo lining up his sights. She fires a shot into the air to scatter people from the plaza. When Teo comes down from the nearby building, Annie follows him on the streets of Copenhagen, trying to track him on cobblestones and through vendor stalls. He races back into a building and she finds him on the roof. She asks him to come with her. He says, essentially, that she'll have to kill him to stop him. She draws her gun and tells him there's another way and she won't let him kill Henry. Teo won't listen to her pleas and jumps off the side of the building... into the river below. She can only scream and watch him swim away.Security guards run up on the roof. Annie tosses her gun off the side and surrenders. Arthur talks to Bianca, who finds his story pretty unbelievable. He's hoping to make people understand why he did what he did, making up an affair and resigning. He insists Teo is undercover and not really a terrorist and he's never killed a US citizen. He just wants to make sure no one else is prosecuted; he'll take the fall. Calder checks in with Auggie again to see if he's ready to talk. Auggie is tired of his bluffing and calls him on it, convinced he's going to destroy the flash drive like his "boss" (Henry Wilcox) wants. Calder insists he just wants the truth."Prove it," Auggie says. Calder takes Auggie back to Langley, where Auggie is surprised the drive hasn't disappeared yet. Auggie tells them how to decrypt it then waits as Calder sees the surveillance of Henry with an ALC terrorist. In Copenhagen, Annie refuses to speak to the police, and then is told she's free to go. Henry offers her a ride outside, promising to tell her where the Stinger missiles went. When she won't get in the car, Henry has two goons get out and intimidate her in. He takes her to an office building and points out the irony of her working so hard to save his life. He tells her she's failing to see the whole chessboard. "To show you how much I respect your counsel, I'm going to change my mind and let Teo kill you," she says dryly. At Langley, Joan makes an angry call, failing to track down Annie. Calder and Auggie report to her office. Calder tells Joan the truth about finding the flash drive at Auggie's and that he held him to get answers. Joan gives Calder a good tongue lashing and sends him out. Joan and Auggie are befuddled. They assumed Calder was working with Henry, but him pushing to get the flash drive disclosed doesn't square with that. Joan get a call from Bogota -- four missles have been found, but one is still unaccounted for. In Copenhagen, Henry shows Annie a group of Solstar energy executives about to board a helicopter flight out to a deep sea rig. The US Undersecretary of Energy is with them. Some of them were targeted by ALC last month. As Henry talks, it becomes clear that Henry is about to frame Teo. Annie looks across the plaza and sees Teo on his knees under the control of one of Henry's men, then knocked unconscious. Years ago, the DEA wanted more men in Colombia, so the CIA planted bombs, including the one in Turbaco that killed Teo's mother, to force the Colombian government's hand. Henry is convinced he can explain away the satellite photo of him in the jungle and what he's about to do will fall back on Teo and Arthur.They let Annie go. She's racing down to the plaza when Henry's assassin launches the Stinger missile into the helicopter. It explodes and crashes to the ground in a giant fireball. Teo is left unconscious by the launcher. Annie wakes him up and gets him on his feet. They race through the building looking for a way out as police flood the area. Down in the garage, Annie hotwires a car, but sets off the alarm. A police officer hears and comes to investigate, but she speeds off with Teo as the officer fires. Teo is hit in the thigh as they drive off. At Langley, Auggie repeatedly calls Annie's phone, but gets nowhere. Auggie hears about the Stinger missile on the news. Six people died. Annie helps a wounded Teo into his car and out of her stolen one. Bianca sits down with Arthur to talk to an assistant attorney general. She encourages him to simply be truthful. But before they can begin, Arthur gets word about Copenhagen. Annie calls Joan. Teo is badly hurt, but Joan asks if they can make it across the border to a base in Germany, about ten hours away. Annie relays that the guy who fired the Stinger is the same one who ran her off the road in West Virginia, killing Eduardo Vargas. They hit the road. To keep Teo awake, Annie asks him about his earliest memory of Arthur. He remembers how much Arthur loved his mother and how there was a gravity and seriousness to him. Teo sees that same look in himself, and misses feeling carefree. At Langley, Calder comes down to tell Auggie he and Annie are being placed on review, he heard it from the DCI. Auggie asks if he's gloating, but Calder says he's not playing sides. Annie brings Teo onto the Army base. Arthur caught the first flight over and meets them. They rush Teo into surgery. As Arthur is paying attention to his son, Annie slips away. She calls Auggie from the train station. He thinks she should come in and tell her story, but she worries about Henry's connections. Having studied his itinerary, she also wonders why Henry had a 36 hour layover in Frankfurt on the way to Copenhagen when there's a flight every hour. Annie wants to find out who he was meeting. Auggie warns her she's a wanted fugitive, but she says she knows what to do. At the base, Arthur sees Henry on TV talking about how he was supposed to be on the helicopter. The doctor comes in to Arthur, looking grim and says only, "I'm sorry."

24 Oct 2013Description ▼
Annie and Sana race through the streets on a motorcycle until Annie pulls over at a swank hotel and makes a beeline for the bar, where she charges two shots of Patron to "Andrew Goodman's" room. She has his phone, Henry's been texting him nonstop. She also lifted Goodman's ID and she's counting on that and the fact he was good at his job to mean he'll stay a John Doe for a little while. She checks the room number on her bar tab and heads up to begin ransacking for answers. She finds the wall safe, telling Sana to turn the TV on loud. Annie bashes into the wall next to the safe with a fire extinguisher and shorts it out to open it. She takes out a flash drive and hard drive and they leave the hotel. Sana reviews the story she's going to tell David: She followed Annie to calm her down when she left the meeting, worried she'd blown it. They got a few drinks but they'll both be at work tomorrow. Sana thinks Annie has no idea how to handle Henry. "He's better at this than you," Sana says. Annie sees yet another text from Henry to Goodman requesting the status. Annie goes to see her landlord, Reese. She tells him her "ex-boyfriend" got rough with her and she had to defend herself and he's dead. (He's sympathetic because his step-dad beat his mother.) She asks him to say he hasn't seen her for a few days and he agrees. Auggie's back-from-the-dead wife Helen drops in on him. She says the Campbells asked for her help with Arthur's defense. He doesn't believe her and is still stung by watching her "die" seven years ago and learning recently that it was all a lie. She tells him she never stopped being his wife and still wears the necklace he gave her. He suggests it might be time to stop. "I'll let you know what I find out about Henry," she says. The next day, Annie tells Sana she found files on Goodman's flashdrive that were designed to set up David, to make him look like he knew about the attack in Copenhagen. The hard drive is too encrypted. She's uploading files to David's computer as she talks to Sana on the phone and tells her she's working on a plan. She texts Henry: "It's a go." When David talks to Annie at work, he has been convinced by Sana that the meeting falling apart was Goodman's fault, not Annie's. At Langley, Auggie brings Barber the new hard drive he's been requesting, then casually mentions that he heard Braithwaite opened a blue file on Henry.The gossip spreads quickly. In the hallway, Auggie checks in with Calder, saying they'll know their whisper campaign is working when Henry comes to talk to Calder instead of Braithwaite. Joan sees the two supposed enemies talking. At David's office, Interpol agents come for him. When he's gone, Sana yells at Annie for not preventing it and Annie explains she had to upload the files herself because that's what Henry was expecting Goodman to do -- and if it wasn't done, Henry would know something was up with Goodman. Annie has a plan to follow how Henry moves his money around. Sana has very little faith in Annie's skills. Sana isn't pleased.Annie tells Sana that the person who set the bomb in Jai's car was a former operative that Henry had turned his back on. Henry has been projecting his guilt on Arthur and destroying lives. Sana's on board. At a fancy cigar shop in DC, Henry ambushes Eric Braithwaite. He asks about the blue file. Eric insists he didn't open one on Henry, but Henry doesn't believe him. With Annie's coaching, Sana calls Henry and tells him she's been thinking about what he said in Frankfurt and that David is in trouble. He agrees to hop on the next flight out to Geneva. Joan drops in on Auggie to ask why he was talking to Calder. Auggie says he can't talk about it. Joan confirms that she and Arthur hired Helen to look into Henry and Helen is following him to Geneva now. Joan reminds Auggie that they're the only two left. Auggie struggles with keeping her in the dark about Annie. In Geneva, Annie tells Sana to tell Henry everything he wants to hear. Annie plans to throw a wrench in Henry's world during their meeting. Sana is feeling skittish and tells Annie she's not a good handler. Annie doesn't have the luxury of time to make her feel comfortable. Annie listens to Henry and Sana over the phone as she goes to a hotel. Henry tells Sana he can keep her safe. He asks about new visitors to the office.Annie plants something in the hotel room as Henry tells Sana his new company will do the CIA one better. Henry gets a text from Goodman insisting he return to his hotel room. Henry is annoyed, but goes. When he's there, Annie texts as Goodman demanding $3 million or he'll tell Sana everything. Henry leaves an angry message, telling Goodman he'd hate for something to happen to Violet. Annie doesn't know who that is. Henry finds the map of Copenhagen that Annie planted and is angry. He texts that he needs 6 hours, Annie gives him 3. Annie explains that once Henry transfers the money, they can locate the origin electronically. If they follow the money, they can prove Henry was behind the Copenhagen attack. Sana is dubious. Henry calls Nelson to have him wire the money. Auggie and Calder meet outside the building. Henry has asked to meet with Calder in two days, without Braithwaite, just like they were hoping. Auggie tells Calder that Henry is in Geneva now, but he doesn't want to reach out to Annie -- she has to get through the mission on her own. Nelson calls Henry, telling him he has the money to transfer. A Swiss man calls Henry. They meet and the man tells Henry that Goodman is dead and has been for at least a day - he was found in a woman's apartment. The money transfer deadline passes. Annie gets a call from Reese saying they need to talk right away. Annie goes to his club but gets a bad feeling. He mouths "run" to her before she gets too close. The police who had been staking out the club follow her, but she knocks one over and gets away. She gets a text from Henry to Goodman's phone. "Whoever you are, I'm going to find you." With a picture of Goodman's dead body. At Langley, Auggie asks Joan what Helen has found in Geneva. She hasn't heard from her. Joan has heard the rumor about Brathwaite and Henry being on the outs and commends Auggie for starting it. Back in Geneva, Annie returns to Sana in the empty office where they've been meeting. Sana continues to complain that Henry was a better handler than she is. Annie tells her she's been compromised and has to leave Geneva. She doesn't get far, because they hear a noise and Annie hides. Henry walks in. Sana keeps him from finding Annie and asks him if he's gotten anywhere with finding out what's going on with David. Henry suggests that David might be guilty. Then Henry's demeanor changes and he accuses her of betraying him and mentions the name Jessica Matthews. He tells her the authorities are looking for an Indian woman in the death of Andrew Goodman. He promises her he'll ensure that David never gets out of the mess with Interpol. When he brings up their son, Sana calls him a monster. "Fine, I'm going to find Jessica Matthews. And kill her," Henry says. When Henry leaves, Annie tries to reassure Sana, but Sana can see their only plan has fallen apart. Sana completely gives up on Annie, saying she's a monster like Henry. Annie leaves, angry at everything going wrong. Outside the building, Annie put on her helmet and rides away - as Helen watches her from the shadows.

Annie steps off a bus, back on American soil. Helen pounds on Auggie's door at 5:30 in the morning. She's back from Geneva and tells Auggie that Annie was following Henry -- she's alive. She realizes he knew already. It doesn't change the fact Helen wants him back, but he asks what else she learned in Geneva. Annie steals a motorcycle. Helen tells Auggie about Henry's call to Nelson, his money guy. Auggie is pleased that Henry sounded rattled, it means Annie's play was working. Helen promises not to tell Joan, Helen of all people, understands what Annie is going through. Henry requests an off-campus meeting with Calder Michaels, to tell him he's about to hear about the death of an "extremely deep cover operative," Deric Hughes, who reported directly to DCI. His missions were all off-book. Henry tells Calder that Hughes was killed in Geneva by a woman named Jessica Matthews. Henry says Eric Braithwaite isn't the man for the DCS job, but suggests maybe Calder is if he helps Henry. Calder comes back to his car to see a note apologizing for a scratch. It's written on the back of a church flyer. Calder heads to the church and finds Annie. He's peeved Annie is contacting him. They compare notes. Annie gives him Andrew Goodman/Deric Hughes' laptop. He tells her to get out of town, because if Henry figures out she's Jessica Matthews, they're both dead. Later, Calder gives Auggie the laptop, but doesn't tell him it came from Annie. He tells Auggie to analyze it at home. Annie goes to her storage locker which holds the classic car Auggie gave her, and is looks up Violet Hughes -- she's Deric's daughter. Helen briefs Joan on her trip and tells her she wants back in to the CIA. Joan says it isn't the time. At home, Auggie and Eric Barber go through Deric Hughes' laptop looking for anything that mentions Copenhagen or Medellin. Auggie finds a coded email from one of Henry's operatives, but they need the cipher key to decode it. Barber finds a list of contacts and thinks he can crack it. Later, Auggie meets with Helen to tell her he found out Nelson's last name is Smith and he's in New York. Auggie thinks Annie might be able to find the source key to decode the message. Auggie asks her to follow Calder to find Annie. Annie goes to a dorm at George Washington University to talk to Violet. She says she's with a life insurance company, but Violet quickly figures out she's lying and grabs a backpack and heads for the door. Annie correctly guesses that her dad gave it to her and told her to run if anyone asked about him. Annie assures Violet she's not there to hurt her, and asks where her dad told Violet to run to: a cabin at Hillcrest. The man who owns it will supposedly help her. Annie tells her not to go, it's safer for her here. She promises Violet she won't tell anyone she saw her. Annie rides out to Hillcrest, to find the cabin. It has surveillance cameras out in the middle of the woods. Annie sneaks around and sees Henry inside. It's a rustic old log cabin -- with super high tech security. Annie watches as Henry leaves, then takes pictures through the window. Joan goes home. Arthur learns his trial date is set for six weeks. He wants them both to retestify and tell the truth about Henry to try to sway the prosecution. Calder gets another flyer for the church on his windshield and speeds there in his sports car. Helen follows. Calder notices and takes off. He doubles back around and comes nose to nose with her car. Helen speeds down the road backwards. He comes to a stop, gets out and pulls his gun. She speeds away backward. Calder meets Annie at the church and she shows him her cell phone pictures. Calder tells her he was followed. She doesn't think it sounds like Henry. She realizes it must have been someone doing it for Auggie, he would have put two and two together with the laptop. She wants to contact him, but Calder reminds her to follow her own rules. Joan gives another deposition and is forced to answer that she authorized Annie to torture Teo even when she knew he was Arthur's son. Calder meets secretly with Auggie to tell him that Annie doesn't want to see him and he has to let her go. "You're putting us all in jeopardy, her most of all," Calder says. Back in her storage locker, Annie makes herself a new ID and thinks about Auggie. Joan comes home and has to answer to Arthur about authorizing torture of Teo. She explains she was trying to prevent a terrorist attack. Auggie gets a text with directions on where to take a city bus. He gets on and Annie sits next to him. She doesn't say anything. She's surprised when he gets off the bus and goes to meet with Helen. Helen takes him to her cover apartment. She says she doesn't want a cover anymore, she wants a life. She gives him a quick tour. She tells him she lied when she said their marriage was a cover -- one of the lies she had to tell herself to stay dark. He's glad she's alive. She kisses him.It quickly progresses and they end up in bed. In the morning, Auggie is already full of regret. She knows he's still in love with Annie. He tells her what they had in Rome was real, but for him it's over. Eric Barber calls Auggie to tell him Calder is leading a team out to a cabin at Hillcrest. Calder leads a team. They start with disabling the security system, but as soon as they open the security box, the cabin explodes. Back at Langley, Calder tells Henry he didn't know it was his cabin and he followed Jessica Matthews there. Henry is suspicious and reminds him he wouldn't put anyone in a job that he couldn't get out. Henry orders Calder to find Jessica Matthews, and not to worry about bringing her in alive. Calder meets with Annie at her grave to catch her up to speed. He thinks the pressure they're putting on Henry is working. When he asks if she's off to New York to follow Nelson Smith, she says it's better he not know. He gives her a gun with no serial number. "It's not a question of if he finds you, it's a question of when," he says. When Calder leaves, Annie hears a noise. She draws her gun and orders whoever it is to come out. Helen steps out. She asks Annie if she has any info on a source key for the email, but Annie doesn't. Helen tells Annie that Auggie's still in love with her and if she has any desire to come back, she shouldn't wait too long. Henry checks his security footage at the cabin and sees "Jessica Matthews" creeping around, but never sees her face. Calder comes to Auggie's apartment with the photos Annie took through the cabin widows. They're looking at book titles for a key to the email. The Bible in French strikes them both, Calder remembers Deric Hughes had the same thing. At tech gives Henry the surveillance footage from a bridge near Hillcrest, which shows Annie arriving. They zoom in until they have the motorcycle plate. (Annie has a helmet on so he can't tell it's her.) Back at Auggie's apartment, the algorithm to crack the email finishes working. It's from Deric Hughes and says: "Stinger secured. Need ten million more for Copenhagen. Old account not viable. Send new instructions to receive funds." It's the proof that Deric was involved, but they still need to link Henry. Annie rides her stolen motorcycle to the bus terminal and buys a ticket to New York. Henry walks up to the bike outside as Annie goes to board the bus. He walks inside and follows her out to the bus. Annie gets a bad feeling and walks around the front of a bus. Henry follows, but then sees a woman with dark hard and similar clothes behind him in the bus's review mirror. He turns around. It's Helen Hansen. She can't bother hiding. She tells him she knows he's guilty for what happened in Copenhagen, Medellin and Geneva and that he'll never get Sana back. He calls her Jessica Matthews. She pauses for a moment and then says, yes, she is. She's telling him it doesn't matter, they have enough to get him, when he pulls out a gun with a silencer on it and shoots her. They're between two parked buses in the dark, and no one sees. On the bus as it pulls away, Annie sees Henry standing over a body. She gets off the bus and sees who it is. Later, she goes to Auggie's apartment. She knocks, but starts to walk away. They stand there, on opposite sides of the door.

Auggie answers his door for Annie, and knows immediately that something is wrong. "Helen's dead, I just saw her shot at the bus terminal," Annie says. She's pretty sure Henry killed her. Annie needs to find Nelson Smith, Henry's money man. Annie asks Auggie if he knows where Helen was staying. He doesn't mention he slept over there last night. At Langley, Eric Braithwaite summons Calder, telling him they have a problem, it's about Helen. At Helen's apartment, there are still two wine glasses on the coffee table and the bed is unmade. Annie finds notes in Braille hidden in a package of spaghetti. Nelson Smith is a customs official. Annie tries not to react to what she sees. the evidence that Helen hooked up with someone. Auggie asks her to help him clean up her things. She lets him find the bed unmade and realize that she knows. He tells her it's not what he wanted. She says she understands, she chose this course of action and forced it on him. They hear someone at the door. Auggie sends Annie out the fire escape and he opens the door for the bald man trying to pick the lock. The man says he must have the wrong apartment. Joan gets good news at her maternity check up, but she's due the week Arthur's trial starts. "His first son just passed away and I really don't want him to miss the birth of his second," she says. Outside, FBI Agent Rossabi meets Joan. His interaction with Henry didn't sit right and he thinks he's who got Annie killed. He says he has evidence on Henry, but he can't do anything with it. A week ago they intercepted the flight of a diamond industry consultant named John Mailing on his way to Johannesburg. He was carrying a lot of cash with serial numbers unaccounted for by Treasury, he thinks they're from the CIA presses, which Joan, of course, denies. Mailing called Henry's Lexington Global before he boarded his flight to South Africa, then two days ago he turned up dead.Rossabi gives Joan a few of the serial numbers. Pelham, New York Annie stakes out Nelson Smith's suburban home and follows his minivan to a boarded up business with a locked gate to a bunch of shipping containers. Nelson opens the gate to let three vans in. Calder and Auggie compare notes about Helen. Calder doesn't know anything about her, but Auggie tells him she was following Henry. Auggie wants to go after him, but Calder warns him to be smart. Even though Henry killed her himself, the victim died seven years ago and the witness died three months ago. They still don't have enough. Joan goes down to the CIA shipping department, where stacks of freshly printed cash are being moved around. A woman confirms the serial numbers are CIA and shows her they were going from Dover Air Force Base to Kandahar. They were signed out and taken to Dover in CIA transport. The white vans finally leave the gated area. There are three of them and they all go different directions. Annie follows Nelson and gets stopped behind him at a railroad crossing. His van takes off right before the train comes and gets in front of the train. Annie loses him. Annie breaks into a shipyard and walks around looking in crates. She finds ones with pallets and blue plastic wrap inside, similar to what the CIA money was wrapped in. Annie finds Nelson at his kid's soccer game and pulls a gun on him, telling him she wants Henry's head on a spike. Auggie gives Eric Barber an address and asks him to get all the information he can on its security system. Eric asks if it's Henry's place and asks if they're crossing a line. Auggie tells him they crossed it long ago. Joan calls Auggie looking for Helen, she wants Helen to run something down in New York. She tells Auggie about the $200 million of CIA money that never made it to Kandahar, she thinks it's how Henry has been financing his operation. Auggie tells her Henry shot Helen. At Langley, Calder gets security footage of Henry at the bus terminal. Annie rides in Nelson's car with a gun on him as he drives. She accuses him of terrorism and explains how the $10 million he sent Deric Hughes was used for the Copenhagen attack. She asks him why he moved the cash today. When he hesistates, she explains what happens to people who outlive their usefulness to Henry.He reaches behind him and grabs for her gun, crashing his car into water barrels on the freeway in the process. He gets Annie's gun and takes her to warehouse. She's dazed and he has a gun on her. When he sees that she doesn't want Henry to know she's there, he takes a picture to send to Henry. She asks if he's prepared to kill her. "I get it. You're underpaid, and underappreciated. You saw an opportunity to provide for your family without anybody getting hurt. But that part of the deal is over, from here on out, people get hurt. I have a proposition for you," she says. "I'm listening," he says. Eric Barber stakes out Henry's house, which is heavily fortified. Calder is summoned to give a status update on Helen Hansen. There's a man Calder doesn't know in Eric Braithwaite's office with him. Braithwaite tells Calder to pull Auggie in for a polygraph about Helen. When Calder asks who the other man is, he gets nothing. Calder's about to leave, when he pauses. He points out to Eric Braithwaite that Helen died around midnight and Braithwaite called him an hour later, even though Helen had no ID on her and DC police still thinks she a Jane Doe. Braithwaite doesn't address Calder's implication that he shouldn't have known about the murder so fast. Nelson gives Annie three days to get to Henry, and then he'll tell Henry she's coming. Nelson tells her Henry told him to move the money late last night, it's at a diamond wholesaler now. Henry's picking up shop and moving to Hong Kong. Brooklyn, New York Joan leaves Arthur a message, saying she won't be home for dinner. Joan goes in to a jewelry store and IDs herself as a diamond buyer, asking to see their biggest stuff. The bald man who was trying to break in to Auggie's apartment comes in. Joan asks to use the bathroom, playing up the fact she's super pregnant. She sneaks into the office and downloads the files. While she's there, she hears a man confirming a shipment to Hong Kong the day after next. The bald man sees her heading back to the bathroom and Joan rushes out. On the street, she runs smack into Annie. Joan takes half a second to register her shock, then goes into action mode.Joan points out Henry's courier and tells Annie about the Hong Kong meet. Joan notices a scrape on Annie's neck, from the car crash. As Joan cleans her up, Annie says it's time to bring Henry in so he doesn't make it to Hong Kong. Joan doesn't have that authority any more, but Calder does. At Langley, Calder has a fancy top shelf gift basket from Henry that clearly rubs him the wrong way.Joan calls and asks him to get a tactical team to stick Henry in a box."Why the hell not?" Calder says. Auggie joins Barber in his surveillance van. He says Henry is still inside, he hasn't done anything except get a pizza delivered. Auggie sends him home, for his own good. He brought his own tactical team. They get inside but find the man in the living room isn't Henry. He switched with the pizza delivery guy.Calder's tack team pulls up. Later, Calder asks Auggie what he was thinking."Don't go off the reservation, Auggie. We need you, you're way too valuable," Calder says. Joan drives Annie, offering to stop at an ATM. Annie asks about the protocol when a spy comes in from the cold. There's six months of briefings and they get followed for a year. But that's when it's normal, there's no precedent for her. Joan was looking into it for Helen. Annie is surprised, she thought Helen was good at it, but she thinks Helen must have just been good at pretending. Calder calls with the bad news about Henry. "How can you get me to Hong Kong?" Annie asks. Joan and Annie meet Calder at a private jet. "The first few months of us working together, I resented you, and the last few months, I hated you," Joan tells him. "Are you apologizing? Because you suck at it," he says. She apologizes and thanks him for Annie, fences mended. Auggie is waiting for Annie on the plane. Joan thought they could use a tech out there. Annie gives Auggie Helen's necklace. She took it, although she isn't sure why. "I was scared I lost you," Auggie says. "You know when I was scared? When I knocked on your door and you asked who it was, and I didn't know the answer," she says. Calder joins them and they prepare to fly out for the final showdown.
15There Goes My Gun
14 Nov 2013Description ▼
Hong Kong Calder, Annie and Auggie head to the safe house, knowing that they're on an unsanctioned mission on Chinese soil. They plan to follow the diamond courier to Henry. In DC, Joan comes home to Arthur and tells that him Annie is alive. In Hong Kong, Annie and Calder stake out a passageway, looking for the courier. Annie sees the tall bald white man with the briefcase and follows him down the escalator, relaying his motions to Calder and Auggie. They wait for the courier to make the handoff. Annie realizes she lost him. The courier makes a handoff to a Chinese man in a suit, but neither Annie nor Calder has eyes on him. Annie finds him again, without the case. Auggie tells her to grab him because he's their only link to Henry. The courier sees Calder and Annie closing in on him and runs -- right into oncoming traffic. Not wanting to lose their only lead, Annie goes directly to the police and offers herself as a witness. Back at the safe house, Calder is angry about Annie's impulsive solo move, but Auggie says he can't hack into the security cameras so using the police is their only lead. At the Campbell house, Arthur's lawyer Bianca brings him a plea deal he didn't ask for and wasn't expecting. He has to plead guilty, but not to murder or treason. Bianca tries to urge him to take it so he'll be out in eight or ten years. She explains the government has an airtight case against him, with financial records of him funding Teo's terrorism. She mentions Arthur using Auggie to set up a bank account for him. Back in the Hong Kong police station, Annie reviews the security footage with a detective and waits to see the courier make a hand-off. She IDs the man he passes the case to as the one he was supposedly arguing with. When the detective leaves the room, Annie takes a photo of the surveillance footage showing the man. She sends it to Auggie, who sends it to Joan. She quickly IDs the man who took the hand-off as Oliver Lee, MSS, fourth in command of the third bureau. Annie realizes she's locked in at the station, right as Joan and Auggie are realizing that when the police realize she's ID'd an MSS (Chinese secret service) agent, they'll never let her go. Auggie texts Annie to get out now. Annie doesn't have time to pick the lock before Oliver Lee himself arrives. Annie shows him the photo she has of him with the courier. She whispers to him that she'll trade him all the diamonds for Henry. Calder and Auggie wait anxiously outside the police station. Annie arrives, with Oliver. They head back to the safe house. Oliver Lee can't believe they don't have a bigger team to take on Henry. He doesn't like their chances. Annie takes Calder aside, saying they need Oliver to trust them. Calder thinks the $200 million should be incentive, but Annie points out they're not seeing the diamonds whether Oliver helps them or not. Annie has Oliver call Henry to set up a meet. Back in DC, Arthur has news for Joan when she gets home. He never told Bianca about Auggie setting up the bank account, and it's nowhere in the testimony. The only way Bianca could have known is if Henry told her. Arthur thinks Bianca could be their smoking gun. Back in Hong Kong, Oliver tells Annie the only way to win at being a spy is to quit the game. Annie and Auggie leave the safe house to get dinner, knowing they have a lot to talk about. Annie thinks everything will be over in eight hours. "Either we get Henry, or we die trying," she says.Auggie assures her they'll get him. Eight hours later, they prepare Oliver for the meet with Henry. Henry waits to meet with Oliver, but gets a call from Eric Braithwaite back at Langley. He tells him about Auggie and Calder flying to Hong Kong. Oliver gets on the tram with Henry as planned, as Auggie and Calder wait at the stop where they're supposed to get off, but Henry refuses to budge. Calder and Auggie get back in their van and race to the next stop to try to grab Henry there. At the summit, Oliver and Henry get off in the busy mall, as Annie follows them. They leave the mall and head up a pathway. Auggie waits in the van at the top. Henry walks slowly, sharing his disappointment with Oliver, and then accusing him of luring him into a trap. Oliver looks around and sees Henry has several goons closing in on them. Annie sees one of them heading for Auggie in the van and tells him when to open his door to knock the man over. A gunshot rings out and Auggie gets out of the van to try to fend off his armed attacker. Everyone goes crazy on the steps and Calder starts shooting at Henry's goons. Oliver runs off as Annie runs to help Auggie. Calder follows Oliver and stops him. Auggie fends off the man, but the man runs when Henry and his goons reach their car. They all pile in and drive off as Annie runs up helplessly. Annie, Auggie, and Calder regroup. Calder wants to take Oliver back to testify against Henry, but Oliver doesn't think MSS will let them leave the country alive. Annie doesn't want to leave without Henry, but Auggie and Calder impress upon her that they don't have much time to get out if they're going to. Back in the States, Arthur goes to see Bianca at her horse stables. He immediately asks her how much Henry paid her to tank his case. She says Henry contacted her a week after Arthur returned from Germany. Arthur is asking for more information when he sees a man walk into the stables with a gun. Arthur tries to throw Bianca to safety in a horse stall, but she's hit. Arthur slams the stable door open on the gunman and disarms him, then knocks him over and starts grappling with him. They're rolling around on the floor when the man takes out a knife and stabs Arthur several times in the side. Arthur gets away in time to get to the man's gun. He grabs it then rolls over and shoots as the man comes at him. Arthur is badly hurt, but pulls out his phone. He leaves Joan a frantic message to get out of the house now, they're coming. But she doesn't hear her phone. A man with a gun and silencer lets himself in to the Campbell's house. He goes to the kitchen where Joan has left the water running, but Joan isn't there. She walks up behind the man and shoots him from across her dining room table. The man slumps to the floor, dead, as the pregnant lady holds her gun in one hand and cell phone with Arthur's voice mail in the other. Annie, Auggie, Calder, and Oliver drive to the airport at night. Annie checks in with Joan, who tells them Henry put a hit out on both of them and Arthur is in surgery.Calder realizes they're being followed. Auggie holds Annie out the window and she shoots at the car following them, disabling it. When Oliver asks for a cigarette, they realize they also have his phone, which must be how Henry's men are tracking them. Annie insists she take the phone to lead Henry's men off their trail while Auggie and Calder head to the airport. They drop her off in a bustling city street with plans to meet up on the tarmac. Back in DC, Arthur is out of surgery and doing well. Annie walks among the lit street stalls. She leaves the phone on a trash can then thinks twice and goes back for it. She calls Auggie, he's still on the tarmac. Oliver and Calder just took off on the jet, but he stayed behind to help her. Annie tells him she has a different plan now, and he tells her he's with her. She sees Henry's goons by his SUV and says good-bye to Auggie. She walks right up to the goons and gives them Oliver's phone. Henry walks over and finally gets a look at her, shock washing over his face at seeing she's alive."Hello, Ms. Walker," he says.

21 Nov 2013Description ▼
Kowloon, Hong Kong Henry takes Annie back to his headquarters. Auggie navigates the bustling streets of Hong Kong at night. Calder flies back to the States with Oliver Lee. Arthur recuperates, with Joan by his side. Auggie makes it to the American consulate, where a friend he's called meets him. He needs a second in command, a desk and access to security cameras in Kowloon. Annie and Henry arrive at Lexington Global East. She tells him they have Oliver. Henry's not worried, he's out of US reach in Hong Kong. Then she lets him know that Arthur and Joan are alive. "You went after a pregnant woman. You've crossed every line, Henry," Annie says. He doesn't think he's a traitor, just a man who's willing to take actions based on his convictions. He puts a gun on the desk in front of her, saying it's her opportunity to kill him. She picks up the gun and takes the clip out, knowing it's empty. In his temporary command center, Auggie meets Sara Tan, his second in command. He tells her to cloak Lexington East, shutting down all Internet and cell in the area. Calder drops Oliver Lee off at a holding facility. Calder reports to a top level briefing at Langley called by Eric Braithwaite to discuss Henry Wilcox as a threat. Calder updates everyone about Oliver Lee and Henry's involvement with the Copenhagen and Medellin bombings. Joan joins the briefing, to the surprise of Braithwaite. The state department thinks it's impossible to get Henry out of China."You have my word justice will be served," Eric tells Joan."I hope so," she says. In Hong Kong, at Lexington Global's offices, they lose all communications. Auggie directs the shutdown, telling a team to wait for his signal before they go in. In Lexington, Annie watches as Henry gets anxious about the communications, needling him about being cut off from his country and everyone he knows. A tactical team breaks in and starts shooting up the offices, taking out Lexington employees. Annie, Henry and several others huddle in a conference room. Auggie listens to an emergency call in the area and learns about the team going in -- it's not his. He orders his to go in and get Annie. As the shooting continues, Annie grabs a gun off a dead man. She has a shot on Henry but before she can take it, a man comes up behind her with a gun to her head. Henry yells at him not to shoot her and Annie has to drop her weapon. Henry, Annie and one of Henry's men make it to the stairs and out of the building. They run into another tactical team while getting into their SUV. They exchange gunfire and drive off."You still need me if we're going to survive," Annie says."There is no 'we,' there's only 'me.' I'm trading you to the Chinese," Henry says. Auggie calls Calder, angry about the second tact team, thinking he sent it. Calder has no idea what Auggie is talking about. They both quickly realize there's only one person who had the information and power to send it in: Eric Braithwaite. In his office, Braithwaite gets the news that his tact team didn't get Henry. Eric is crushed. His secretary tells him the DCI would like to see him, with all of his information on Henry. As Henry yanks her out of their SUV, Annie catches the license plate. He leads her into building and up to an empty apartment, monitored by the Chinese spy service. Henry is waiting for them to come so he can turn her over. He expects she'll be tortured for information. Joan and Calder walk angrily to Braithwaite's office, knowing he was trying to cover his own tracks with the second tactical team. They bust in, ready to demand answers, and find him hanging from his ceiling with a confession on his desk. A Chinese operative comes to the safe house, where Annie and Henry are passing the time playing mah jong. Henry tells the man that Oliver Lee told him about the safe house and he's offering Annie in exchange for asylum. The man takes a picture of Annie and steps out. Henry mocks Annie, saying she went dark for nothing. "You simply weren't cunning enough," Henry says. The Chinese man comes in, saying Henry was right about Annie and his superiors are thankful. He gives Henry directions of where to go."I'm sure you don't believe this, but I'm truly sorry this has to end. Good bye," Henry says to Annie. He leaves. The Chinese man introduces himself as Jonathan. Annie acts nervous and doesn't give her name. He takes out a syringe of truth serum to inject her, but she rises up and jabs him, knocking the needle out of his hand and knocking him down. She takes on the man with the gun guarding him and disarms him and knocks him out. He demands to know where Henry is going, explaining that he better be prepared to die for Henry if he doesn't talk. He tells her the train station. She takes his phone and goes up to the roof. She calls Auggie and gives him Henry's license plate and destination. She ditches the phone to get a burner. Auggie asks his Chinese help to get authorization to send a team to the train station, but it's denied. Auggie decides to go himself instead. Joan calls Auggie and he tells her they don't have Henry yet. She suggests he loop Calder in, she's going to be MIA for awhile, she's having her baby. Arthur meets her inside, with his arm in a sling from his stabbing. Jonathan sends Annie's photo to a team of men, ordering them to find the American spy. Auggie sees the alert and calls Annie, warning her that the Hong Kong police force is looking for her. Auggie works on slowing Henry down, telling Sara Tan to stop her car in the middle of an intersection. They get out and leave the car, stopping traffic, including Henry's car. Three men recognize Annie's photo as she walks by and text Jonathan her location as they follow her. Auggie calls Annie with Henry's location in traffic. She finds the SUV and takes out her gun as she approaches it from behind.She sees Henry walking away down an alley and follows him. He slows for half a second, possibly seeing her reflection, then speeds up and walks away. Annie hangs back, then takes a different path.Henry turns around in an alley expecting her behind him, but Annie steps out of a door in front of him and draws on him. Henry stares down her gun and triest o decide what to do."How'd you find me?" he asks."Does it matter?" she says."It always matters," he says. Annie stares at him and then fires, hitting him in the chest. He falls to the ground. Annie steps over his dead body and walks away, the weight of it all being over rising off her. She calls Auggie with the news. He tells her to get to the harbor, he'll meet her there. Back in Langley, Calder announces that Henry is dead and they need to bring Annie in. Calder is given the interim DCS job, after making sure that Joan will have a chance at it when she's back. Annie arrives at the harbor but sees Jonathan showing her picture around. She calls Auggie to let him know she can't make it on the ferry. Auggie scrambles to find her another way out. Jonathan looks up from his phone on the ferry and sees Annie riding by on a yacht. She checks in with Auggie, who has arranged the remainder of her journey out of Chinese. He patches in Joan and Arthur, who have welcomed their son, Mackenzie Campbell."Travel safe," Joan tells her. Annie rides out of Hong Kong and back to her life.
