Ex-marine Walton Monroe Flynn is an employee of a large security company, Citdential, which is a US government-contracted firm in Iraq. Flynn killed their Iraqi business client Nasir Amini. While trying to apprehend them at LA airport, Citdential agent Aimes was fatally ran over. Callen's team started the investigation with CEO Peter Caldwell, who refers to Flynn as unstable. He had a rotten youth who found structure in the army. He received many commendations. He probably came to LA looking for his foster brother Chad Ellis, a gun shop owner, who is found tortured to death at his store. The next clue is a tattoo he shared with hippie former schoolmate Cherise Dawson. Callen infiltrates her life disguised as colleague in a software firm.

Did You Know?


When inspecting the girl's Jeep, the agent first says the starter is bad, then the solenoid. She had been trying to start the motor and you could hear it turning over, so the starter was working. The solenoid is part of the starter and when either fails the motor will not turn over. See more »


Nate Getz: He signed up for the Marines the day he turned 18. The military gave him the family, the structure that he never had. The only other choice would have been a gang.
Special Agent Sam Hanna: Why'd he pick one over the other?
Special Agent G. Callen: Chance to get away from it all. Gangs give you structure, but they keep you in the same place. Military's all about starting over.
Nate Getz: Unless you start to repeat your behavior.
