Darwyn (Michael Ealy) once again reconciles with Gayle (Melissa Sagemiller). This time Farik (Oded Fehr) is watching him, and warns him, "romantic relationships complicate our mission." Farik strong-arms Eddy (Jeff Mallare), convincing him to fly to Vancouver in order to test a batch of anthrax and then smuggle it back into the U.S. Darwyn sneaks his cell phone into Eddy's luggage, so the FBI will able to track him with the GPS device, and calls Ray (James LeGros) to let him know what's going on. Ilija (Henri Lubatti) accompanies Eddy on the flight, but once they have the anthrax, Eddy will drive it back over the border in an RV. While at the airport, Farik and Darwyn go to arrivals, where they see influential Islamic scholar Zayd Abdal Malik (Marc Casabani) coming in from Yemen. Farik orders the members of the sleeper cell to attend a speech Malik is giving at a local mosque. Malik talks about the evils of terrorism, decrying those who use the label Islam to murder. Tommy (Blake Shields) walks out in disgust, but Christian (Alex Nesic) seems genuinely intrigued by the man's words. Darwyn is worried the Farik plans to murder Malik, who has worked to "deprogram" terrorists in the Middle East, but Ray suspects that Malik is a fraud who is secretly working with Islamic extremists. Meanwhile, agents in Canada have to come up with a way to make sure that the anthrax doesn't get across the border, without blowing Darwyn's cover.
