John Robert Keller (James Frain) threatens immigrant children by forcing them to smuggle stolen antiquities into the US for Damien Moreau. The team wants to save an Iraqi girl Keller left to rot with ICE. Keller is bound for Claridge's, so Nate thrills Sophie with a London trip, as well. He plans to sell Keller an unexpected "treasure" created by a true genius. Sophie uses Charlotte Prentice, 18th Duchess of Hanover to sell it, deducing Keller wants a lost barony. The "duchess" claims to be related to 3 of the 10 people who can reach the Earl Marshal. Sophie's provenance is never given, but she is slick enough to fool title-hungry Keller with one well-connected aunt. The con "structed" by Hardison soon gets underway. Written by
