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. He addresses everyone to be on safer guard from now, and excavate as much information as possible on the attackers. Will and Grant get down to post bombing analysis. It turns out from intelligence sources that Yuri, Kateb, George and the traveling Tanaz have an intriguing connection to one another. 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’. The DVD Katherine has been able to find from a pile of boxes has finally found way into her tray. She starts watching, but there is an interruption. Tom comes on the screen and tells Katherine a few arresting messages. First, Spangler is exposed. Tom talks about him having tweaked API intelligence to suit his needs. Next, he tells Katherine an address where she ought to go when in danger. It is a Mott Street place. David Hadas has a message for Will as well. Katherine knows it has to reach Will as soon as possible...
