Episode Summary

EDIT
Travinia ... Life Is But a Dream
AIRED:
Alice and Tamir are being held captive by the Travinian Resistance Movement, who are looking for the tape Tamir made of the dying man and the mass grave he dug for the poisoned workers. Their contact, Anders, is also a prisoner, and the captors torture him in front of Alice and Tamir in order to find out where the film is hidden, but Tamir, the only one who knows where it is, will not divulge the information. Anders is later killed in front of Alice and Tamir. The Travinian Resistance Movement goes on television and demands a ransom of 6 million dollars for the release of Alice and Tamir, due in three days. Unable to get help from the State Department, Jackson meets with the WNS insurance company representative, who advises Jackson that since the Movement does not exist, the Travinian government is most likely behind the kidnaping, and that challenging the President of Travinia to an on-air encounter would put him in a spotlight he wishes to avoid. On air, Jackson asks the Travinian president to invite him to his country to settle the matter in person. Backed into a corner, the president has no choice but to agree. Reese and his father air their differences over a game of pool and come to a new understanding. Jeremy, Alice's ex-boyfriend, blows his CIA undercover role by rescuing Alice and Tamir. Jackson arrives at the hotel at which Alice and Tamir stayed and finds the film that Tamir hid in one of the ornamental gargoyles. Jackson meets with the President of Travinia, tells him that Tamir's film was not where it should have been and that he did not find it. He agrees to pay the ransom, and make to make it look to the rest of the world as though Travinia did the right thing, in exchange for safe passage out of the country. Together, he, Alice and Tamir are able to return to the United States.moreless
