Martin returns to DCO after the events in Houston and is presented
with a brand new case: someone is threatening to assassinate a Saudi
Prince during a visit to Los Angeles. The investigation leads Martin
and Rice to a beautiful and charismatic female rights activist named
Hani Jabril. Her cause is just but will she cross the line and kill
Martin/Sebastian and Tony posing as a photographer have a closer look at Hani Jabril first through one of her speeches then at a reception afterward, feeling her out. They next find out she is supposed to be at a protest where the prince is going for his own summit, and finagle a come-along in guise of doing publicity for her documentary film. The prince's people don't suspect anything, a drone is deployed, and the episode ends on a rather explosive note for the prince.
I was definitely not OK with seeing a human/woman rights activist collude with those resorting to violence to send a message. I hope this was a mis-perception as violence never solves anything. I know Martin's latest legend Sebastian Egan is the fave of both Sean & character Martin but beyond drinking scotch, I'm not too impressed yet. I assume this episode was a cliffhanger & the real story will be revealed next week. The thing I DID love was pairing Tony Rice with Martin, I think they make a great team! Plus Tony will learn more about Martin, hopefully to fit pieces into his murder case & the underlying identity mystery. Don't trust Gates or Sonya and #DONTKILLSEANBEAN!!
