The scene opens with Spangler in a meeting after the attack on the oil tanker. He is fuming with anger at the API professionals, and makes a terse comment – this has been a result of failing intelligence.

Surprised at this, Will comments that the evidence might have been manufactured until now. He thinks this may have been done especially to mislead them. All these people have something in common – Iran. However, Grant replies that the Iranian case is no less than ‘airtight’.

Katherine knows it has to reach Will as soon as possible...
