This is another action packed episode. At the end of the last one, Annie was being held captive in the estate, her cover blown. She manages to escape but is far from being out of danger. Trace has kidnapped Sam who is now on the scene. Annie is stunned, and mad. Why would Trace cause Sam to invade this part of her world? She is also torn. Does she really love Sam or doe she still love Trace?
Trace is taken out of action when he finds out that he has again been summoned before a congressional investigation. He is relieved of his duty so Boone has to take over operations. Francesca just will not let the issue rest until she sees Trace ruined and she enlists a high ranking military officer to help her.
Teya tries hard to save the life of the assassin who nearly took her life. When an event from her past is brought before her, she is nearly devastated. The Turk uses her past to manipulate her to do a dangerous operation for him. Will her work clear Trace as she's promised, or is it a trap?
Keeley suddenly takes a turn for the worse. Boone is distracted and he may be missing a dangerous intrusion into their operation. The couple feeding the team information seems off for some reason but Boone is oblivious to it.
The point of view varies, following Sam, Teya, Annie, Trace, Francesca and Nuala as the intense action continues. The introduction of Sam into the story is great. I really like the women of Zulu. They are tough as nails yet struggle with their romantic feelings.
And we just might have our first definite clue to who is behind the disaster at Misrata. Who is that mystery man from Teya's past, the man she thought dead?
