When a reporter who was sent to document the atrocities being committed in a war torn country, is arrested under the charge of being a spy. Scottie knows him and sets out to rescue him but she warned by the government that the country is an ally to the US and they can't make them angry. She tells her people that the reporter's a friend of her son. She tells them that they are torturing him to admit he's a spy and if and when he does he will be executed. Matias and Nez go in first. Tom follows with the weapons but when he's nearly caught he needs to leave the weapons behind. So they need to get some more and their contact doesn't have what they need. So Tom decides to use strategy to get in the prison where the reporter is being held. They get him out and ex-filtration will take time so they lay low but the reporter wants to get his stuff which has everything he got on the government. They tell him no but he bolts to get it.

The prison door that has to be remotely hacked has six digits in its lock code. After about 90 seconds, as the enemies approach dangerously close, the first five digits have been found. Given how fast the digits flash by on the display, it should have taken less than a second for the last digit to be discovered, but the display keeps rotating through the same ten digits for at least 20 seconds before the door is opened by another method.

Racist, Disgraceful
4 May 2020 | by hilalkhachabSee all my reviews

I was enjoying this show until you people decided to move Kyrgyzstan beside turkey and make them speak Arabic since they are bad guys. This truly shows what information you feed your audience and then on the same network in the news you wonder why there is islamophobia. Just incase you did it out of stupidness (since 7% of Americans think chocolate milk is from brown cows), here are some facts: Kyrgyzstan is beside Russia and speak both Russian and A local Language. Second fact: The only Regimes that represent what you show in your shows are the ones you support and arm to the tooth by your government, least of them Saudi to Morocco, UAE Egypt and the list goes own. Have some dignity and respect people's minds, we are not in the 1950's, everything is online.
