Red tells Liz that a hacker known by the name Ivan is responsible for the death of a man. Thing is that the man operates in Russia. Liz goes to where he died and they're approached by NSA agents who tell them to back off. Cooper shows up and tells them they should work together. They tell them that the man who was killed was working for them and he was working on something that can enable anyone to access anything which a hacker like Ivan could use. And he had it with him when he died but there's no sign of it. So Liz and Red go to Russia to find Ivan and see if he has the device. At the same time Liz is looking for Jolene while Tom tries to make sure anything linking him to Jolene is gone. Written by

Did You Know?


When Harrison Lee hijacks the subway train, the exterior action shots use apparently unused footage from the film Money Train (1995). There is even a random continuity error in the show that proves this: After Harrison activates the emergency breaks, a quick shot of the exterior show sparks shooting out of a bullet hole ridden side of the train, just as the train looked at the end of "Money Train" before it derails.

Honestly! What is the screenwriter doing? The silliest episode in the series so far. So many flaws in one episode .
