Episode Summary

The Chase
The team is ordered to break into an Internet switching center to steal computer codes which will be used to break several key members of the resistance out of prison. Decker and Londo break in while Becca and Jay are in charge of transportation. Decker and Londo fight their way in and download the codes but when they escape, Jay and Becca are nowhere to be found - they've been stopped by two cops because Jay threw a candy bar wrapper out the van window. Desperate to escape, Londo and Decker carjack an SVU and its occupant - Maggie Ford, a young nurse at a nearby clinic. Unbeknownst to them, a security camera took their picture and sent it straight to the Pentagon where Colonel Devon sees it and scrambles 10 Zulu - Decker's old unit. Maggie is unimpressed with the resistance (and Londo in particular) and doesn't believe in what they are doing. While on their way to a rendezvous with Jin to deliver the codes, the team are chased by the police because James was speeding. During the chase, Londo is shot by one of the cops with a shotgun while trying to protect Maggie. The four escape and stop at a small town diner to have dinner. While there, the sheriff demands to see their papers and Decker cites it as an example to Maggie about just how little freedom Americans do have. Aggravated, Maggie spies a cell phone on the diner counter and pockets it. While in the restroom, she calls her home phone number knowing that it is bugged and hoping the military will find her. Back at the Pentagon, the call is traced to the diner and Col Devon heads out with 10 Zulu to the diner. When they arrive, the team is nowhere in sight and the waitress at the diner tells him that she doesn't know where they went. In actuality, the team are hiding in the air vents above the ceiling and behind the counter - the waitress and the rest of the patrons in the diner are protecting them. Devon heads out and the waitress tells Decker and the team that while they can't actively join in the fight, they can do what they can, when they can. One of the diners, however, is not so gracious and copies down the license plate number of the team's van as they leave. The Pentagon uses a spy satellite to find the van and 10 Zulu tracks the team down to an abandoned bus graveyard. Londo is able to take out four members of 10 Zulu by blowing up a trailer but the team are unarmed and outnumbered. They split up and Decker and Maggie are captured by Col Devon trying to escape. Maggie is hauled off by a soldier while Col Devon and Decker have it out. Decker escapes from Devon. James and Becca are pinned down by fire but Maggie uses a board to hit the soldier on the head. He turns to fire on her but Londo rescues her and they and the rest of the team escape. The team finally meets up with Jin who recovers the codes and takes Maggie with her since Maggie is now wanted.moreless
