So, Henry Wilcox confirmed my suspicions, he blames Arthur for Jai's death and is out for revenge, "a son for a son." Evil. Just evil. I also think he's out for the heads of Auggie, Annie, and Joan. And either he has moles all over the place or he has all of Langley bugged. He knows every freaking thing that goes on or is said. He's like some omniscient devil. I'm also even more convinced that Calder Michaels is working for Henry. While it seemed that Auggie and Annie were having a rough patch, he fessed up to what's had him on edge. So going forward, I expect they will become closer, especially now that Auggie won't be her boss. I'm still not clear on what Teo's deal is. Whose side is he on?

I don't know if Henry really has Annie in his cross-hairs-of-death. He acknowledged that Annie was (kind of) his son's friend and was literally THERE FOR HIM right before he died. Plus And she was just a field agent: sure she worked FOR the traitor for a couple of weeks but she was ultimately responsible for taking her out. Sure he's USING her, and probably doesn't mind if she dies or gets fired or whatever during his revenge. But I doubt he's targetting her like Arthur and Joan.

Arthur and Joan? I GUESS I see where he's coming from: two heads of the CIA missed the CIA traitor and allowed her to work there for years, ultimately resulting in his son's death. Heck Joan used to WORK WITH the traitor on the field. I don't agree Henry's desires but there's at least SOME logic to it.

BUT!!! The traitor ALSO worked under Henry since he was in charge of the CIA until not-that-long-ago. So if he holds THEM accountable then he should feel accountable as well.

Auggie? Hard to say: I don't know why he would be in Henry's cross-hairs except as collateral damage for taking out Arthur due to Auggie training his son. As far as I can tell, Auggie was always too low-level and didn't interact with the traitor.

Yes. I agree with all of this analysis. I believe the others are in Henry's cross-hairs simply because of their proximity and/or what they mean to Arthur.

Surely the CIA sweeps for bugs. So, if he has all of Langley bugged, he also has moles to pull them out and put them back (or on the sweep team). So, it's 100% certain that he has moles.
