Episode Summary

Barker and Dove try to uncover a spy selling secrets to the Chinese. Another agent, Michaels, is teamed up with the duo who brings them an aging Chinese defector in need of medical attention in exchange for information he has on a spy. They trace information given to them by a defector to a college math professor, and set up defense documents as bait. The planted formula ends up getting to the Chinese under Ellis' watchful eye; Barker thinks his new partner messed up and tries to protect him by planting evidence to ensure the guilt of the professor. When the defector ends up dead, Ellis starts asking questions about the evidence. The professor is imprisoned for treason, but Ellis follows his gut instinct that leads them back on case after another spy, the student with whom the teacher was having an affair.moreless

  • Challenges

    I found the idea a Chinese traitor was willing to flip national information for medical treatment actually funny as well as extreme. I was actually really encouraged that we see Dove really challenging Barker and almost coming into his own in making his own choices as well as decisions. Dove turning to and involving Beaumont was a prime example of this. But it also shown that he still distrusts Beaumont but willing to do what's necessary to see that the mission has a successful ending as well as an ethical one. I loved watching the conflict between Michaels and Barker play out to the end. But I also thought it was great to see Beaumont question Michaels as to who was the indeed "rogue" agent.moreless
