SPOILERS AHEAD!!

After last week's betrayal reveal, things are explained a bit more.

In the present, Kate is still in big trouble, imprisoned at the Chechen President Arsanov's house, with Tamir's wife watching her. In Prague, Martin is all but pleading with CIA Nina and MI6 Simon to help him find & rescue Kate, but they are reluctant. So that's why Martin revived his Dmitry cover, in order to gain back favour with Tamir, find answers himself. He is unaware that Tamir's nephew Beslan told him that Dmitry killed his brother Doku. Both were mistaken because it was Ilyana who murdered Doku- Dmitry just covered it up. So when Tamir calls "Dmitry" for a job, Martin is unprepared when Tamir attempts to kill him, forcing Martins hand- he ends up killing Tamir in self defense before finding out where Kate was. Kate is still trying to find a way to get a call out.


In 2001, Curtis & Gabi find out about Doku, assume it was Dmitry, have to deal with Blazek as well because of the photos. They question Ilyana, who says nothing, but also get from Tamir that it was Dmitry who killed Doku. Dmitry tries to explain to Terrence what happened without mentioning Ilyana's involvement. They try to figure out what next to do to get General Arsanov, MI6 & the Russians' main target. Dmitry's main concern has become getting Ilyana & Katya to safety. Ilyana finally tells Dmitry that the police think he killed Doku. Arsanov is still interested in Ilyana, wants to take her & Katya with him to Chechnya in Dmitry's smuggler truck. The Russians want Arsanov captured, through Terrence, via Dmitry. But Dmitry thwarts both plans in favour of his own when he finds out about Ilyana & Katya, with the unwitting help of Curtis Ballard, who tracked the truck and gets shot when Dmitry escapes from him.

In 1994, Ilyana and Doku meet for the first time, in the course of the Chechen war. It is also shown that Arsanov was in charge then, too. He tells Ilyana that her father is dead, and also finds out that she favours Doku.

In the present, Gabi confronts Blazek about his dealings with Tamir, follows up in case of a terror plot connection. But she finds nothing, it's the wrong place to look. Both MI6 & CIA Nina don't consider Beslan to be critical to plans, but Martin knows better, tells them to hurry up & find him, that's where the real danger lies plus he's the one who moved Kate. Ilyana blames herself but Martin thinks he's to blame for Doku's death. Ilyana tells him the truth. Gabi follows up on Blazek's bribe story.
Then Arsanov tells Kate that he wants to marry her, because it's what Doku would want.

Things are so tense!! What?? Now Arsanov, denied Ilyana, wants to marry her daughter? Will Martin make it to Kate on time to prevent this?


LAST SURVEY!! Not sure why TNT wants to know, since for now, the show is cancelled? But! I'm glad they are asking, maybe another crumb of hope of seeing LEGENDS elsewhere if not TNT? I wrote them a bloody book about LEGENDS for the questions that allowed it! LINK:  http://spr.ly/6188BVvaK

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!
