Al-Zuhari sends a request to facilitator James Leatherby by messenger. Leatherby makes a joke to the messenger about how much Zuhari trusts him; He then promptly blows him up the building with the messenger still in it. Section 20 is in Beirut chasing a target named Amir with the help of Kamali. Amir is shot during the extraction. Under the orders of Dalton, they threaten to plant papers on his body that would make Al Qaeda kill his family if he didn't tell them what they wanted to know. Dalton is still having trouble dealing with the death of Baxter. She is still taking medication to cope with the emotions. It is affecting her decisions. She orders Kamali to pay Leatherby the money to bring in Zuhari and to wear a wire to the meet. She doesn't care if it gets him killed. Leatherby is an extremely paranoid man. Kamali is reluctant to do it, but he does.
