Doyle is in London for the holiday break talking to MI6 folks. Lydia comes up with a cover for Dayana and tells her to go home and use it or she’s out. It includes cutting ties with her whole family and she won’t do it.
Owen comes home to find Lydia gone but confidential information is still there.
Shelby calls Leon and appeals to his guilty. Nimah shows up to see how it went and Shelby tells her its time to wait. Alex turns up too.
They continue through the vent after making sure the terrorists have clears out of the room. The device they need to disable the weapon falls down a shaft to the basement. Sebastian and Alex keep going while Doyle goes to find a new blowtorch.

Alex is led away and into an alley. She fights back and pulls the mask off. It’s Ryan. He shoves her back and enables a sensor wall. If she crosses it the weapon goes off.
Wait, Ryan is a bad guy? I don’t buy it. He’s doing this for some noble cause. The ultimate mole or something. I want Alex, Doyle and Shelby to be the heroes. Now it’s like two months until it’s back. Damn these hiatuses.
