Reese, Shaw and Finch are too late for their latest number, Leona Wainwright, as she is killed in front of Reese and Shaw's eyes. They know that Leona was killed by Vigilance for information she would have had unwittingly with regard to the Machine as a federal government employee.

Their problem is that the FBI is also involved in the investigation, which means that the Bureau has first access to all relevant information regarding the case. Root is getting her own information from the Machine as to Vigilance's involvement with Leona's death and what they will do to obtain whatever information they are looking for. Leona's death also causes nerves to rise within the politicos in the know, that nervousness which funnels its way to Control. Meanwhile, Reese and Shaw feel like they are being punished by Finch ...
