Meanwhile, Alex forges an unexpected bond with an asset at the center of a conspiracy, and Harry struggles to find his place on the task force.
The team finds one of the collaborators who accessed the cache, an NYC socialite Rebecca Sherman, and requests the team for help. However, she and another collaborator, Thomas Roth, are killed by a sniper, who is revealed to be Sebastian. Sebastian forces Harry to leave the task force. Meanwhile, Clay's fiance gets upset when she realizes their upcoming wedding is used as an excuse to get to Rebecca, and Shelby advises her to stay with him. Nimah tries to call Raina, but unbeknownst to her, Raina is kidnapped, and her house is planted with evidence to make her look like a terrorist. Nimah also confronts Ryan, as he revealed the Ponzi scheme to Sasha, who published the story.
