Patrick refuses to allow corrupt senior DEA agent Bill Peterson to expose Abbott's execution of a drug baron and thus sabotage his wife's nomination as trade representative, and secure political capital with a new congressman from the opposite party faction. So Patrick mobilizes the rest of the team for an 'informal', unsanctioned sting operation. They locate Bill's illegal gains by breaking into his home and deal with the bullet Peterson presents to the eager congressman's legislative assistant Missy Brammer. Written by KGF Vissers
