After losing the anthrax shipment, Farik (Oded Fehr) gets a warning from his handlers. He'll be killed if he fails again. He's given a new assignment, and assigns each member of the cell a specific task. Darwyn (Michael Ealy) has to get custom-made tires which would be impervious to bullets. Christian (Alex Nesic) has to procure a bunch of dogs. Tommy (Blake Shields) trains to drive a big rig truck, while Farik and Ilija (Henri Lubatti) case a warehouse with a very heavy security system. It turns out that Kenneth Bin Al-Waleed (John Siciliano) is using the space to train fighters for the insurgency in Iraq. But Farik needs the space for his own purposes. He assigns his team to pose as would-be insurgents and train with Kenneth so they can recon the warehouse and get the security codes. Ray (James LeGros) gives Darwyn a lecture about his relationship with Gayle (Melissa Sagemiller), warning him that he's putting her and her son at risk. But Darwyn still joins Gayle and Marcus (Jake Soldera) for dinner at the home of Gayle's sister, Catherine (Eden Rountree), where he gets into an argument with Catherine's bigoted ex-husband. On entering the warehouse for "training," the four cell members are told that they can't have any contact with the outside world for the next month. After a couple of days (during which both Ray and Gayle grow increasingly distressed about Darwyn's lack of communication), Ilija figures out the security codes and contacts Farik. But Kenneth is not prepared to let his base be used as a headquarters for a terrorist group.
