Neal has to resume his Wall Street alias to apply for a broker position in the investment firm of slick 'friend' Eric Dunham, who is suspected of systematic insider trading. That requires tipping him off and entering the inner circle, an after-hours boxing club, where only the winning fighters share in the valuable secrets. Peter insists to enter and win, but Neal is in no mood to help him after finding out Peter's suspicion scared off Sam Phelps, the undercover cop who promised Neal to tell what happened to absent cop father Caffrey.
Despite their bitter row over Sam Phelps, Neal accepts to keep collaborating professionally with Peter, even appearing together as 'model team' agent-informer at agent Walt Furlong's international law enforcement convention. Together, they counter Ted Anderson's presumed evil plans at Dr. Drugov's presentation of a revolutionary new bullet proof vest. While Mozzie helps Neal contacting Sam again, Burke's men discover he stole that identity or as Neal presumes staged his death, but a killer is also on Phelp's trail.
