Storyline

The next number that the machine spews out is that of Wallace Negel, an ex-German national who emigrated to the United States in 1980. However, they learn that Negel has not made any electronic transactions since 1987, which to both Reese and Finch can only mean one thing: that Negel is an alias and that he is a spy, probably working for the East Germans in the Cold War battle. On further investigation, they do learn his real name is Ulrich Kohl, and that he is an ex-Stasi operative who worked in a four-man team killing East German defectors worldwide. On tracking Kohl, Reese finds his first victim, who was one of the people on his four-man Stasi team. On further investigation, they believe Kohl's current mission is to kill his entire team, who have relocated to New York, and that the reason has something to do with his deceased wife Anja. Reese finds that he is not alone in trying to find Kohl, and that information from that competing force may add another name to Kohl's current hit ... Written by Huggo

John Reese: And Ulrich Kohl never existed. I always thought I'd die in a place that didn't know my name.
John Reese: You think anyone will care for our names?
Harold Finch: After we're dead.
