Vaugh arranges a meeting for Michael to question torture-resilient Simon, but they fake a fight so Simon can confide the secret whereabouts of damning proof against Vaughn. Sam feels honor-bound to help retired ex-colleague Juan Ruiz, whose life is most uncertain in jail since he got mixed up in a deadly La Nación-Aryan Brotherhood gang conflict. Michael decides to call a recent marker on FBI agents Lane and Harris to arrange his own fake arrest to get inside. Protection proves impossible, so he must improvise an escape. Meanwhile Sam and Fiona follow Simon's clues, leading to a booby-trapped family Bible. Written by KGF Vissers
