Heís putting in for reassignment to the director of intelligence. Sid says if she had the shot she may have taken it. Dixon tells her that he knows what Emily meant to her.
Irina talks to Sloan. She tells him they may know why they wanted the genetic database. Sloan isnít interested in databases. He wants satellite footage of Tuscany. He wants to know who murdered his wife. Irina says if he stops now, heíll never forgive himself. Heís close to knowing what Rambaldi knew. Sloan wishes he had never heard that name.

Mrs. Caplan becomes angry that they are implying that she isnít doing enough. She gets her son and leaves. Irina goes in to see Caplan. She tells him they still need his help. They are looking for some specific. Caplan is in handcuffs Ė with chains long enough for him to work with. Caplan says he hasnít heard from his family in 2 months.

Sid talks about her conversation with Elsa to Vaughn. They are in bed. (Ucky in bed kissy stuff). Vaughn gets up and begins digging through a backpack. Sid tells him that the backpack is getting ridiculous. The middle drawer is his. He thinks itís a great idea (Iím barfing). Sid says 2 calls were made to the Caplan house 4 months apart on a Monday night from the same number. Vaughn asks where the calls originated. Sid talks to Elsa again. She asks about the calls. They were traced to a reporter, Evanov, who works for an agency known for Russian Intelligence coverage. Sid tells her that Caplan may have been working for the Russian equivalent of the CIA. The fax received was one word. In Russian. In English it means End game. Elsa admits it was her. Evanov was her handler. She was told to seduce and marry Caplan. She says that Caplan is going to die. Her objective was to keep tabs on his work. She inserted a tracking device in his arm. It also has a suicide device on it. It inserts cyanide into his blood stream. The fax that said endgame means that the device was activated. Elsa is in tears and she says that she has just committed treason against her government. She wants Caplan back. She loves him.

Sid says Jack let Irina walk out because he thought she could lead them to Sloan Ė when did he start playing it safe. Elsa wants to know who has her son. Why is she in a cell?

He tells him a few days ago he would have done anything to keep him alive but now he doesnít care. Irina tells him they still need Caplan. Dixon talks to his wife. Heíll be reassigned within the agency. Maybe Texas or DC. Heíd be an analyst. She asks if heíd be happy not being in the field? He says as long as she and the kids were safe. She reassures him. Tells him that Sloan lied to him for years. And that it was Sloan who put Emily in harms way. Sloan says Iím not doing it just for that. Iím doing it for us. She says itís okay. She understands. Fake Francie receives a call from Sloan. He asks if her source is still in place. Sid is driving and being followed. Jackís people are following her. She pulls into a drug store and gets out. She heads inside. Weiss and Vaughn discuss Sid giving him a drawer. Sid calls Vaughn. They talk about Jack shutting her down. She tells him that sheís getting pictures developed. That there are some great ones. He can hang them next to the coat rack in the hall. But they guy isnít sure theyíll all come out because she used the wrong film. Too slow or something. Vaughn moves across the room to Weiss computer. Weiss asks what? Vaughn tells him what she said about the coat rack. Vaughn says sheís never been to his place. He doesnít have a coat rack. Sid makes her purchases and asks for the bathroom. She changes and struts through the store. She talks to a bunch of giggling girls. Sid makes friends with them Ė complete with southern accent.

Jack says he is giving him the benefit of the doubt but that Vaughn has to tell Jack where she is when she makes contact. Vaughn asks why they donít give her backup. Jack tells him that this isnít a debate and just because he is comfortable with Sid, doesnít mean he should be comfortable with Jack. Sid arrives at a western bar in Moscow. She talks to the bar tender. He tells her that everyone here has ridden the bull for 8 seconds and dismisses her. Sid naturally gets on the bull. She makes it. Then returns to the bar tender.

Jack speaks to her in Russian. He tells her there is a trace of Ukrainian in her accent. He wants to know what her cover story to Caplan was. He asks if she was placed at Caltech as a student or graduate student. Elsa says you donít know anything about her. Elsa says you are Sidís father. Irinaís husband. Jack tells her this makes him an expert on someone like her. He gives her psychobabble about getting pregnant and thinking about getting rid of it but thinking it will redeem her. He tells her he cares more about her son than she does. She screams donít you dare take my son away and dissolves into tears. Sid calls Weiss who gives the phone to Vaughn. Vaughn tells her Jack knows. Sid says Jack canít see straight when he sees them together Ė he thinks of Irina. Vaughn says heís going with her. She says he canít. Weiss shakes his head.

They have 12 minutes. Vaughn brought gear. Vaughn tells her where the phone is coming from. They gear up. Vaughn gushes about how cool Sid was when she got away. Sloan watches the satellite footage of Emily dying. He sees where the shot came from. He sees that it was Dixon. He makes a phone call. He needs the recipient of the call to do something else for him. Sark is babysitting Caplan. Caplan asks why someone 22 or 23 is doing working for Sloan. Sark was sent to school in England at a young age. It made him very self-reliant. What he wants is that which he never had. Caplan asks if Sark is going to kill him. Sid and Vaughn run to the building. They creep through a dark corridor. A guard finds them. They fight. Guard goes down. Shots are fired. Sark is alarmed. He orders the guard into the hall then takes the disk from the computer. Caplan looks on. The guard pulls a gun on Vaughn. Sid sneaks up on the guard. Sid finds Caplan and asks if Irina or Sloan are in building. Caplan says no but a blonde guy is. Sid says Sark. Vaughn goes in pursuit. Sid explains to Caplan that if he doesnít listen to her heís going to die in 60 seconds. Sark runs through the corridor. Vaughn sees him and fires. Sid tells Caplan that Elsa works for Russian Intelligence. Caplan says he knows. The NSA recruited him 6 years ago. They had Intel that he was going to be a target. They recruited him out of Caltech. Sid tells him that he was injected with a Cyanide capsule. Caplan says she wouldnít try to kill him. Sid says she didnít. Her handlers did. Vaughn pursues Sark onto the roof. Sark isnít there. Sid tells Caplan they have less than 30 seconds she has to remove it. Sid cuts open his arm and removes the capsule. Caplan says thanks. Caplan is taken in to see his wife. They hug and kiss.

Jack says that Vaughn is going to escort the Caplanís to an island. Elsa has been granted defector status. She isnít Irina Derevko. Sid says they downloaded the DNA database that was on the computer Caplan was working on. They have leads to Irina and Sloan. Jack tells her that if she goes around him again, heíll have her transferred. The Dixonís, Sid and Vaughn are at dinner. Dixonís wife tells Sid she owes her an apology.

Dixon tells them that he descended the transfer order. Marshall babbles to Jack about a bandwidth discrepancy on the computer. Jack says in English. Marshall says there was a data hemorrhage. Jack says WHAT? Marshall explains that it came from within the office. Not a hacker. The Dixonís, Sid and Vaughn are on the street babbling about how the CIA has season tickets to the Lakerís games.
