Harrison Lee
Abby Fisher
David Fisher
Agent Galarza


Red tells Liz that a hacker known by the name Ivan is responsible for the death of a man. Thing is that the man operates in Russia. Liz goes to where he died and they're approached by NSA agents who tell them to back off. Cooper shows up and tells them they should work together. They tell them that the man who was killed was working for them and he was working on something that can enable anyone to access anything which a hacker like Ivan could use. And he had it with him when he died but there's no sign of it. So Liz and Red go to Russia to find Ivan and see if he has the device. At the same time Liz is looking for Jolene while Tom tries to make sure anything linking him to Jolene is gone. Written by

Love the series but Keene annoyed me in this episode
17 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

I love this series. Without a doubt James Spader is the highlight but generally most of the supporting cast is solid. However in this episode some of Keene's actions were downright silly even though probably intended to move the plot forward.

Firstly if you are going to check out a lead, why in the name of all that is holy would you call a civilian? You don't do that at any other time.

The second major annoyance was her little temper tantrum when she visited Red. She goes to ask for info, he does not give her exactly the response she wants and she turns into a two year old.

Still a critical episode in the larger story arc, but I really wish they found a more believable way to get to the point.
