Eventually the Bahrain stands by the diplomat, a member of the Royal family goes to meet with her and it turns out she knows him and asks for his help. But in the end he gets the man sent back to Bahrain. But when he decides to prosecute the man he is shot and Elizabeth must decide if she should go to his funeral.
