Eph brings Zach to the base and keeps him locked in a room since nobody trusts him. Dutch and Fet interrogate Sanjai and keep him imprisoned in another room. They want to know The Master´s hideout in Manhattan. Quinlan arrives and shows Sanjai´s wife Stella locked in another room, forcing the guy to tell the location of The Master. He also draws a sketch of the layout of the room on the 102nd floor of the Empire State Building. Gus and his crew go to the Federal Reserve to help Roman to protect the nuclear warhead and steal silver to fight the vampires. Eph brings Zach to tell the location of The Master and his information coincides with the one provided by Sanjai. Epg goes with Zach to the roof and gives a can of ginger ale to him. When Zach cuts his finger while opening the can, Eph realizes that his son left a beacon to The Master. Eph confronts Zach and he reveals his real character. Then Eph locks Zach and summons his friends to leave the place that is compromised and head to the Federal Reserve. Quinlan goes with the detonator to the Empires State Building and learns that The Master has changed his hideout. Out of the blue, Quinlan is surrounded by vampires.

"The Traitor" shows Eph finally learning who Zach is and his choice. The action is good and now the fans will be avid to know whether The Master will be destroyed or not. My vote is eight.
