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

1. A top secret project would never be transported in a civilian car! Really! 2. Oh let's just ask the perp his name when you're yards down the hall. Hopefully you knew his picture already dorks! 3. Oh yeah let's turn on one light post at a time. Yeah that is totally possible. 4. Hey you think we should turn the sirens on whenever we're going to nab him? He'll never figure it out.
