Arriving in New York from Sri Lanka, political activist, Bela Khan, is in the States to visit her ailing mother, and speak at a political rally. While leaving the rally, assassin, Bhatt Tom, attempts to kill her but misses and kills her personal assistant, Rosemary Shaw, instead. The assassin is killed by her body guard, Gil. Detectives soon discover that it was the body guard, Gil, who planned the exit through the kitchen, to set up Bela for the hit, in exchange for getting his brother off of death row. When he is assassinated while in custody, Logan and Wheeler turn their attentions to members of the the Khan family itself, as possibly being behind the hits, and must figure out who is pulling the strings, and who the real target is before it's too late.

Inept writing
15 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The setup of this episode is so inept, the plot became irrelevant to me. How on earth Tamil separatists from Sri Lanka could be Muslims with the surname Khan is beyond me. This episode seems like an unintentional version of the "Borat" movie; wrong names, looks, accents etc. No wonder the rest of the world thinks that we Americans are stupid! As it is, the average person knows barely anything about the rest of the world and then t.v. shows like this come along and add to the misconceptions. To the intellectually bankrupt writer in Hollywood: I'm sure "they" all look and sound alike, but if you want to incorporate real world situations into a storyline do some background research.
