A testament to Nate's superpowers, this con unfolds at the Cincinnati Metropolitan Airport just as the team returns from a job in Montserrat. Nate spots a lady in scrubs participating in a dead drop. He can tell she is not a professional and she is very upset. She is Linda Johnson, transplant nurse, carrying a human heart for 15-year old Joshua Spin. Because of Sam, this icase hits close to home for Nate; Sophie actually urges him to drink. After rescuing Linda's kidnapped daughter, the team IDs the bad guy and hacks the airport with 1980's tech. Dean Chesney is the slime ball who thinks his money entitles him to steal from a dying young man and UNOS. Chesney would have made Nate's hit list, but for the fact he was dying. Nate adjusts to the situation and promises to monitor Chesney to make certain that the death God planned for him actually "takes." Written by

I'm too old to make the top of the list. This is my only chance. I've planned for months. I have eight backup contingencies. I'm fighting for my life, Mr. Ford! What are you fighting for?
I am ...
