The scene opens at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. Annie is playing soccer with a college friend Diego. Meanwhile over in Caracas, Venezuela, they are doing the same thing and a man is watching. He sees a man and goes up to him. He asks who is winning. Two other men come up and say that only the government wins. They run after him and try to kill him. He runs away from the men but he is chocked with a wire by someone in the backseat of his car. Back in Georgetown, Annie doesn’t win the soccer game and she tells that she let him win. He invites her for drinks and moves a little bit more playfully and she gets up. To get her to stay Diego tells that he will do anything. She speaks Spanish to him and she tells that she learned Spanish and there is a lot he doesn’t know about her. She tells that she needs a favor. She asks to get to his sister Julia. Victor Ponces meets Julia and has the same necklace of the man that was running. He gives it to her. Back in Georgetown, Annie tells that Victor Ponces is a bad government official that has been working with Julia and she is his mistress. She has been helping to steal money from Venezuelan oil and have been wiring it to an offshore account. Annie tells Diego that she needs his help to be contacted with Julia and that way she can protect them and give Diego the education under a new identity. She tells that if he doesn’t do it, and her sister gets caught, then Diego will be deported back home with no future chance to become a doctor. She gives him her card and leaves. Auggie sits next to Diego. Back in the office, Auggie tells Joan that Diego didn’t do anything and didn’t call anyone. Joan is upset that Auggie went out on the field with Annie and tells that he is needed indoors and not out. Joan asks about Annie’s cover ID for the Smithsonian. Annie will be going to Caracas, Venezuela and tells that Annie is only to hold her hand. Jon comes in and tells that their contact hasn’t replied to any messages yet. ..
