Storyline

Sam helps Mike identify Diego Garza as a CIA operative in Miami by spotting his cover firm airplane. Before then can force his hand, hoping to get Mike back in the game, they are spotted themselves by mathematical genius Spencer Watkowski. He has a loony theory about aliens, but also makes predictions and proves his colleague Brad was murdered. Mike's team checks out their employer, a firm which sells encryption to secret government agencies, and confirm the manager is copying the software keys, worth a fortune to state enemies.
