Storyline

Dzerzhinsky tries to make Sidney realize that his situation is hopeless and it is useless to resist interrogation. Characteristically Reilly does resist but is ultimately broken. A paranoid Stalin wants Sidney and everyone involved with 'The Trust' executed, but Dzerzhinsky resists. Meanwhile Cummings works for Reilly's release. Written by duke1029@aol.com
