SPOILERS AHEAD!!

Martin was in a lot of trouble last we saw him as Sebastian Egan, he had been grabbed by the Saudis that his articles were targeting as being in collusion with Arcadia, corrupt. His objective was to find the true murderer of the Saudi prince & get Hami off the hook. Instead these guys were pummeling him to get him to admit he was an FBI agent & threatening to kill Sonya & Aiden if he didn't talk. That got Martin angry & desperate, in which he beat off & escaped his kidnappers.
Crystal & Tony find out that the bastards have taken Sonya & Aiden. Gates tells Martin, who has a present for DCO when he gets back. They use drastic tactics to get info out of the Saudi prisoner about Martin's family & identity, but he doesn't know. It's Maggie who uncovers the truth- Arcadia was bought by Verax, the government contractor that Dobson, Evans & McCombs had worked for in Iraq, and who had claimed that Martin did too. New target: Jason Shaw, former Green Beret, now Verax CEO. Martin confronts Gates & demands the truth, who tells him yes Martin did work for Verax & had been lying about his identity because of WITSEC, witness protection. Gates shows Martin the redacted file about Raining Fire, the disastrous Iraq operation of which he apparently was a part when he got hurt in 2004. Martin asks if his wife had been a part of it. Then he gets a text from Aiden. Smart kid!
Maggie tracks the cell signal & Martin, Crystal & Tony go off to rescue Sonya & Aiden. They do & put them in a safe house with Tony until Martin can get there. Crystal wants to know what's going on, but now Martin stalls her. DCO FBI bosses decide stuff that the agents don't agree with. Martin & Crystal go off in disgust. They want to know who leaked Martin's FBI identity. Crystal asks her father for info. Martin confronts the deputy FBI director Spiller. He tells Martin that Verax is rogue, bent on controlling government decisions, and shows Martin a photo that he says is John Cameron, their top agent. Martin eats it all up because he doesn't have reason to disbelieve Spiller. Yet.
John Cameron is supposed to know who Martin Odum really is. Therefore, Martin wants to find him. In the meantime, Verax is cleaning things up on their end, and they are coming after Martin next! He & Sonya do their best to hold them off but she gets hit. Martin tries to get her to come clean. She tells him that she was helping him in 2004 as a CIA agent & that he was MI6. WHAT??

That was an enormous amount of info to take in! What is Martin, or whoever he is, going to do now? How was he connected to Verax in Iraq? What sort of operation was Raining Fire? Will Sonya survive? Fortunately TNT decided not to make us wait & showed episode 10 immediately after. #DONTKILLSEANBEAN still going strong!!

Here's the final Series 1 survey for LEGENDS, the info from which I hope is used for a Series 2!!
