With his CIA supervisor on Egyptian mission, Michael can work on his near-lookalike, naive Jacob Starky, who proves clueless why he was hired by thugs, so the team must protect him and use him as bait to trap that scum. Meanwhile Tommy O'Lear's mother Denise hires the team to rescue her preteen son Tommy, whose father, grief-struck after his brother's death in Afghanistan, took the asthmatic kid along when joining brute Zechariah's lunatic anti-government militia. The team must make John see sense and extract them from a heavily guarded compound. Written by KGF Vissers

Michael Westen: [narrative] Of course, just because it's the right way to do things doesn't make it fun.
