Cary Elwes opens the final season as Scott Roemer, CEO of Global Transit Airlines in Portland. Global started with military drones and expanded into cargo shipping. Roemer is a huge fan of Howard Hughes and covets The Spruce Goose. When one of his pilots dies, his widow and young daughter are absolutely decimated by the court. They turn to Hardison and Parker and tell them about the fraud and corner-cutting which caused the pilot's death. The team lines up a con so clever, even Roemer's mama would smile.
