Sam helps Mike identify Diego Garza as a CIA operative in Miami by spotting his cover firm airplane. Before then can force his hand, hoping to get Mike back in the game, they are spotted themselves by mathematical genius Spencer Watkowski. He has a loony theory about aliens, but also makes predictions and proves his colleague Brad was murdered. Mike's team checks out their employer, a firm which sells encryption to secret government agencies, and confirm the manager is copying the software keys, worth a fortune to state enemies.

Did You Know?


The "spy plane" Michael Westen identifies is actually a Beech 1900 with Gulfstream International, a regional airline out of Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport and clearly painted in Continental Connection livery. The "FAA" window which Michael escapes from is in the Sheltair/Jet Center FBO building at FLL; which houses the local FAA/FSDO office. See more »


When Michael is making the fake ID driver license, at least two errors are shown: The number starts with "L", yet the last name is Winger. On a Florida drivers license, the number starts with the first letter of the last name, so the number should have started with "W". The issue date is shown as 1985 with an expiration date of 2012. Florida licenses are only good up to 6 years, so this date is incorrect. Additionally, the 8th and 9th positions of the license number should be the year of birth - which also do not match.

[first lines]
Michael Westen: [narration] Nobody wants to hear from a burned spy. Your old handlers send your calls straight to voice mail, your appeals are filed in the trash, your old contacts are worthless. Your best bet is to find an active field operative that can't hang up on you. If you're on domestic soil, the airport's not a bad place to look. Intelligence agencies are like amateur magicians, watch closely and you can see how they setup their tricks. It doesn't matter how good they are at misdirection ...
