Episode Summary

EDIT
The Usurper
AIRED:
Roth is talking with a man named J.T. Rodmore who gave him a tape which Roth doesn't want made public and in exchange for that Roth signs control of his empire to him and he leaves town. Dan arriving to see Roth, finds Rodmore and is incredulous that Roth would leave town without telling him. Dan then goes to everyone who saw Roth within last 24 hours and learns that it was during that time that Rodmore met with Roth. Dan learns that Roth went to Washington and has been seen all over the place but in places that he doesn't normally go to. Dan notices that someone has been following him and it seems to be someone working for Rodmore. A woman who knows Roth arrives with a message from Roth, who then calls him to back off and to get her to the airport. Rodmore tries to grab her but ends up getting her hurt. Later that night, Roth walks into Dan's place and tells him that Rodmore is his brother. It seems that his brother was originally going to go into politics but Roth's line of work made him undesirable and he has hated him since. Roth then tells him that a client of his who was once in the government had a tape recording of Roth talking to some government men but doesn't say what they were talking about. Dan surmises that the government sent for Roth who had just returned from Cuba for meeting, it seems that Roth was in Cuba before Castro came into power and Roth had pretty much the run of the place including the presidential palace, so they wanted to see if it was possible to assassinate Castro but the plan was rejected. However, Roth is afraid that people might not see it that way. Roth has been in Washington trying to find out if there is anyone backing his brother and if so who. He has returned to steal the copy that his brother has. Dan agrees to help him. Despite being met by Rodmore and his man, Dan still manages to get the tape.moreless
