Recap

The scene opens with Phillip watching a news report and Henry asks where Poland is. Paige says that it is part of Russia. Elizabeth is confused. Amador and Beeman come into work and the boss says that the son of a Romanian Leader was busted with Cocaine and that they should talk to him before they do their own form of justice by cutting off the boy’s balls. Later, Phillip meets Elizabeth at a hotel and they kiss. At the FBI office, Amador quizzes Beeman on his Russian when they get the news that Reagan has been shot. Back at the hotel, Phillip thanks Elizabeth for making them take the afternoon off. She asks him if there is anything else he wants to thank her for, hinting at the sex they just had. They laugh. The boss at the FBI gathers a team and Beeman tries to ask what he wants him to do, but he is not interested. ..
