Reese is out of his element with their next number belonging to Graham Wyler, a seemingly straight laced family man who lives and owns his own small hardware store in suburban Far Rockaway, New York. Reese learns that surveillance in the residential suburbs is much different than it is in the city. That's why Finch sets up a cover for him as a suburban family man who moves in across the street from the Wylers. It is up to Reese to find his own "wife", who he chooses being an old friend who owes Reese, but to who the suburbs are equally as foreign. As they dig a little deeper, they learn that Graham Wyler is an assumed identity - one taken from a dead man - that Wyler's wife Connie and their teenaged daughter Izzy are probably unaware.
