A testament to Nate's superpowers, this con unfolds at the Cincinnati Metropolitan Airport just as the team returns from a job in Montserrat. Nate spots a lady in scrubs participating in a dead drop. He can tell she is not a professional and she is very upset. She is Linda Johnson, transplant nurse, carrying a human heart for 15-year old Joshua Spin. Because of Sam, this icase hits close to home for Nate; Sophie actually urges him to drink. After rescuing Linda's kidnapped daughter, the team IDs the bad guy and hacks the airport with 1980's tech. Dean Chesney is the slime ball who thinks his money entitles him to steal from a dying young man and UNOS. Chesney would have made Nate's hit list, but for the fact he was dying. Nate adjusts to the situation and promises to monitor Chesney to make certain that the death God planned for him actually "takes." Written by LA-Lawyer

When asked what he is doing, he says he is "endeavoring, ma'am, to construct a mnemonic memory circuit using stone knives and bearskins." See more »


When Hardison goes to enter the airport tower the first time by swiping the ID card, the card reader blinks red and a recording asks for a PIN number. When he comes back later knowing the PIN, after the swipe there is no red light or recording. See more »

Nathan Ford: Well, well. I was wondering when I might hear from you.
Dean Chesny: How's your boy, Mr. Ford?
Nathan Ford: He's not my boy
Dean Chesny: So now what? You can't report me without exposing yourself. And what's to stop me from trying again?
Nathan Ford: I am.
[he turns on the monitors in his loft, revealing surveillance video footage of Chesny]
Nathan Ford: I'm watching you. I'm watching your money, your people, your company. What have you got there, a pulse rate of 86?
[as Chesny turns to look at his heart rate monitor, it begins beeping faster]
Nathan Ford: Oh, ...
