An ATF agent is found in her home, an apparent victim of suicide. Don, having been involved with her, asks Charlie to run algorithms to determine if she was likely suicidal. After determining that she had much to live for, Charlie and Don take the investigation from the ATF and decide to hunt down likely killers. A local Ayrian bike gang proves a useful lead and Don finally discovers (with the help of the usual CalSci graduates) that the agent's death was really an inside job. Written by andrewxc

Agent Nikki Davis is seen as the episode begins in what appears is an apparent suicide. Don Eppes is seen target practicing in a range. He is pleasantly surprised to find Robin Brooks, an attorney with AUSA. It is obvious Don has more than a passing fancy toward Robin. When a call to Don interrupts Don and Robin kissing in his car, he is told about the agent's suicide. Don had been involved romantically with Nikki a while back.

The investigation centers in Nikki's husband, Richard, whose phone records indicate he has been in Mexico. When he reappears, he clearly tells FBI agents he had nothing to do with Nikki's death. When goaded by Don, Richard reveals a shattering piece of information, Nikki had been diagnosed with cancer and it's his theory she might have been despondent. Nikki also was in charge of a team in which someone might have been interested in getting rid of her since she probably knew about his own criminal connections.

Charlie Eppes has a different take in the case. A recording reveals a shot being fired from inside Nikki's house that does not correspond with any of their findings so far. By going into his algorithms, he is able to think Nikki had been murdered. Richard Davis has been involved dealing in illegal arms with some known criminals from the area. When Richard Davis turns up dead, the FBI agents conclude he was executed by the same people that he was helping obtain the illegal arms.

An interesting episode directed by Steve Gyllenhaal, a guest director that does a fine job every time he is called. The chapter was written by Robert Port. The performances the director elicit from the regulars and the guests make this series the joy it was. Sadly, the end was announced recently that CBS was canceling the program.
