Burke's wife brings a friend of hers to see him. She tells him her husband a soldier is being sought for smuggling gold into the country. Burke tells her that her husband should turn himself in which he does but claims to be innocent. But Burke says the evidence against him is irrefutable; his fingerprints and hair were found in the gold. The soldier claims that someone from the State Department tried to get him to bring the gold in but he refused. With Neal's help they deduce that the evidence against him may have been planted. And it takes them to a news reporter who interviewed him who was also overseas at the time the gold was being prepped to be sent. So they think the reporter and State Department man are involved and try to prove it. Written by

While, Caffrey's correction of Aimes' comment about the Greeks ending Ptolemaic rule is partially correct in that it was in fact ended by the Romans, the ruler he mentioned was Ptolemy I Soter (367 BCE - 283 BCE), the founder of the Ptolemaic dynasty. The death he assigns the end of the dynasty to is factually correct, Cleopatra VII (69 BCE - 12 August 30 BCE). Her co-ruler at the time was did not have 'Soter' in his name: Ptolemy XV Philopator Philometor or 'Caesarion;' although he did die on the same date (12 August 30 BCE). It is possible (but confusing) that Caffrey was referring to the entire dynasty as Soter's reign, explaining his mention of the name. See more
The husband accused of smuggling antiquities is referred to as a soldier in the plot summary. He is a Marine captain, thus an officer and a Marine to boot and would never be referred to as simply a soldier! Semper Fi. See more
