She asks him if he could make a fake id. Yes he can. Next, Annie lands in Luxemburg.

Linda tells her that she is not Auggie and she will need that time. She runs into the parking lot and finds that the door to the stairs is closed.

She wants to know if she could use him to complete her mission and he says a yes. She knows that Khalid is trying to take her alive and she wants to get to him before he gets to her. Eyal wonders that how is Khalid managing to pay his men when he is in hiding. Eyal tells her that Khalid’s father, Omar is in Zurich on business. Omar seems to be hiding something. He tells her that one of his banker friends told him that Omar got 50k in cash and he went to make the drop at a club but he didn’t see to whom.

Just then the banker calls, telling Eyal that Omar got 250k this time. In Iraq, Downey tells Auggie that coming back was his wife’s idea. He tells Auggie that he got a concussion and that his partner died trying to save him. Auggie says that it is ok to have some trauma after a war. Downey leaves.

They then hear the noise of cars pulling over. They are Khalid’s men and they found them. Annie tells Eyal that they are five storeys up and there is no way down.
