Episode Recap

Reports of several dead bodies from one of the few remaining primitive tribes in the world lead the IMF team to a gold mining operation. Max goes in first as a worker, but the boss doesn't allow him to cross the bridge to where the tribe lives. Grant and Jim pose as bank personnel, changing the hired workers' gold into dollars, but they can't see their investment either. So Nicholas and Shannon enter as government officials and threaten to shut the place down if they're not allowed to cross the bridge. The boss agrees, but when the car is clear of the bridge, they are caught by the tribe. It turns out that the tribe is being duped by a white man working for the miners, posing as the son of the volcano god. He orders Nicholas to be sacrificed to his "father", the Volcano, and Shannon to be made his queen. Grant has tagged along on the next car, but will he be in time to save Nicholas?
