Ethan, a young soldier back from Afghanistan, needs Michael's help finding the dangerous con man who put his sister in the hospital. In order to take him down, Michael has to teach Ethan some tricks of the spy trade and as they work together, Michael begins to see a younger version of himself in Ethan. Michael has problems of his own, however, trying to find the person who killed Max and framed him for it. Michael is introduced to AGENT PEARCE (Lauren Stamile), who's been sent by the CIA to investigate Max's murder and serve as Michael's new agency contact. Michael must do what he can to aid the CIA's investigation while keeping the evidence from leading to his own doorstep. Written by USA Network

Some secrets are so dangerous that you can't allow them to continue to exist. A murder weapon that implicates you in a crime you didn't commit, for example, is a secret best kept with four thousand degrees of burning thermite.
