The FBI Team are closing in on Crawford’s plans when they hit a roadblock in their investigation. Let’s recap.
General Joseph Baxter tries to shut down an illegal military weapons project when there’s a suspicion it’s falling into the hands of some ruthless people (ie: Crawford). The weapon is used to bring down his plane.
A conspiracy theorist is summoned to the FBI office when it transpires he’s written a book about the existence of this sonic weapon – Golden Rhino – which is under siege by Crawford for his own agenda.
The CEO of a military defence contractor is called in to an interview by the FBI. Kurt grills her (Moon) until she gives up her ex-Head engineer’s location, and calls him to set up a meeting. The FBI go to the meeting while she monitors the situation on the phone to look credible.
However, Roman is one step ahead of the FBI and is already at the meeting point, about to silence the engineer, Ganzmann. When Roman faces off with Jane she falters and he escapes.
Back at the FBI, Patterson is horrified when the FBI’s helicopter is brought down – the sonic weapon was used – and that’s how the FBI become aware of how deadly Crawford’s plan is, and the land he got from Jean-Paul before he was killed is in the Saharan desert.
When he’s not killing, Roman is conflicted about his relationship with Blake. When she tracks him down, he’s annoyed as she’s getting in the way of his side missions, but after an ill-timed heart to heart he pretends he’s suffering from post-traumatic-stress-disorder from his time in the war, and she reassures him that he can be open with her.
There’s a bizarre flash forward where Roman imagines Blake killing him after he confesses to being a fake, but he chooses in reality not to disclose the truth to her.
They spend a cosy couple of days in a bed and breakfast place as a distraction to Roman’s problems, and to keep off Crawford’s radar.
Avery proves to be an asset when she discloses information that reveals a connection to the CEO of Varnew (Moon) who knew Avery’s Father, and Avery pretends there’s a journal with every detail of Moon’s involvement in the weapons project. However, Moon didn’t know who was buying the weapon, and was paid a hefty price to keep out of it.
For once there was no wedding talk from Reade, and Zapata seems to have forgotten her CIA connection – for now.
