Steve Zurk ...
Riker Executive

The Michael impersonation was a professional job, his tracks covered too well for Weston's team to find. Fiona asks help from former IRA ex Armand, who Always demands a return 'favor', in this case stealing a car armored to measure from the factory, which Sam helps her pull off. The CIA orders Michael and Pearce to find a third man -Jesse- to help 'discretely' check on whatever shady middleman Steve Cahill is having a secret meeting about on the Bahamas, as turns out an oil cartel's plot to destabilize a South American regime so they can take over its petroleum. It gets the team locked in when Miles Vanderwaal arrives with his mercenary company, so he must pose as cartel operation chief Jackson's 'internal security'. Written by KGF Vissers
