Episode Summary

EDIT
Al steals "The Sorrowing Angel", a Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece worth $500,000, from the National Gallery. It will be used to bait Francisco Arascan, a South American dictator in exile who has "one of the world's great private art collections". The democratic government that ousted Arascan, wants the S.I.A. to find out his plans for taking back his former country. Noah gives Al a genuine 16th century canvas, with a hidden microphone woven into a piece of it. Al has recruited a first class art forger, who can copy a da Vinci so that it will pass any examination, turning the forgery into a "listening device", to find out Arascan's plans. Noah wants Al to sell Arascan the genuine da Vinci, and then switch in the fake!moreless
