SPOILERS AHEAD!!

Both Martin & Hani Jabril are in a lot of trouble. A Saudi prince was assassinated on his watch & it now looks like Hani was framed for it by a State Department employee who was acting as an agent for an Arcadia oil rep who apparently works with the prince's cousin who wanted him dead. The DCO is being hit hard by it's superiors because this assassination of a Saudi national happened on US soil during their operation. They need to do something about this mess or get burned, and it's further complicated by Martin's FBI bureau status. Gates gets the go ahead to do whatever is needed to find out what really happened.
Martin isn't happy about having duped Hani as part of his undercover mission as Sebastian Egan, the journalist. She isn't happy about it either when she sees him as him and not Egan. Martin tells her that he won't let her get blamed. She doesn't believe him. Martin tells Gates he is really pissed off now.
Next, Martin & Tony are sent to investigate the apartment of the suspected real assassin. They find him dead with a bit of a hangup. Well, cripe! DCO uncovers some more info & Martin knows the dead government guy was likely killed by the same oil cartel people who killed the prince & wanted Hani dead as well. Maggie does a bit of a buzz over at Arcadia herself to get some more data on them.
With all the evidence looking like a conspiracy, Martin says it's time to pull out Sebastian Egan the journalist legend again, concoct a story to set up the conspirators... and use himself as bait. It's a really good story. Martin tells the State Department lawyer that his plan will work and... Egan gets nabbed. But the oil cartel isn't done yet. They know who Egan is... and show up at Martin's house!
WOW! Now that's a cliffhanger I didn't see coming! Quite a lot to resolve in next week's series 1 finale, which consists of the last 2 episodes 9 & 10. My biggest questions: Who is Martin Odum? What's Sonya & Gates got to do with it? Who killed McCombs, Dobson & the other Iraq war veteran? Does it have anything to do with Martin's "real" identity? Very glad to see Tony Rice & Martin paired again, I think they make a great team. Still not too fond of the Egan legend but it has served it's purpose, the power of the press! And I really like Maggie, she's been kickass with the technical & computer support. All coming to a head next week but really, all I ask is #DONTKILLSEANBEAN!!
