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

Goofs

There were several errors in references to credit scores. One said the perpetrator did not have credit scores "before 1988"...nobody did. Credit Scores were introduced in August of 1988 to all three bureaus. A couple of other references listed "scores going back to..."..First of all it is a common misconception that we all have scores that are attached to our files. Instead a score is determined every time a file is accessed, provided only to that person...and not recorded. Even if it was possible to track scores back to 1988, the bureaus backed up their archive data bases on tape until the mid 1990's..so there is not even a record "online" of a person's credit report as it may have appeared in 1988.

Quotes

Harold Finch: After all that, he goes in the ground under a name that isn't even his. The German government will sweep the whole thing under the rug.
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.
John Reese: I thought we already were.
