Official synopsis: In present day Paris, Nina and MI6 agent Simon Hardy (Gershwyn Eustace Jr.) offer Kate a deal that Martin doesn't like, but Martin may not have a choice. Ballard convinces the FBI to let him take down Martin. In 2001 Prague, Dmitry enlists Ilyana as an MI-6 operative and gives her an assignment. In 1976 England, we learn that Terrence has a secret life.
In the present day, Martin & Kate are being held by Nina & MI6's Simon in order to get information from Kate on the Paris terrorist bombing and, not only to hold him for the Americans, but to also find out what Martin knows about this plot. Martin refuses to cooperate unless they let Kate go free, which is not happening. He manages to break out free for a few minutes, yells for Kate to not say anything to their captors. "Don't say a word!!" he shouts. She wisely follows his lead.
After his attempt, CIA's Nina finally tells Martin the real reason why they want to talk to Kate. Tamir Zakayev is planning another terrorist attack, and they think she can get vital info from him- her uncle.
The Czech police, Gabi, and Curtis search Dmitry's office & discover the gun that Tamir hid to frame him. They tried to offer Dmitry a deal but of course, he refused, in keeping to his own agenda. Alex, the state attorney, is told to release Dmitry. He informs Doku, who then suspects Tamir, but Alex also tells Doku that he wants money to release Dmitry. Doku is upset with Tamir. Curtis is furious to learn of Dmitry's release, suspects a payoff. Ilyana goes through with her task. Dmitry confronts the Zakayevs.
Martin wants to regain control. He demands to handle Kate alone in the CIA operation, as well as receive all the files with info about his legends as he's done wondering about it. But Kate is scared.
Patience brings roses? Well, Curtis Ballard's end in the present was blooming abrupt! Plus new info about Doku. But there's still more of Ballard's story to be told, so we aren't done seeing him yet. What about his missing leg? Dmitry is as canny as ever in his time, and Martin seems to have a plan for Kate after the present day tangle with agencies. What's next? I'll be watching!
