Elizabeth and the White House get on step closer to solving the mole behind the weapons smuggling ring when Cpt. Baker's electronic trap is sprung. A lawyer shows up as Elizabeth and the FBI are interrogating the accountant caught editing flight manifests. Elizabeth contacts Mike B to find out who hired him. He manages to have his client released in exchange for giving the govt information about who he worked for, but he is shot outside of the Justice Dept moments after his release. 

Henry becomes suspicious of Ian's behavior after a meet, and finds out that the Council of Elder's is dosing him with LSD. Henry heads out to bring Ian in, but ends up getting shot. Elizabeth insists he quit his work with the FBI/DNI. The FBI raids the compounds, and Elizabeth realizes that Henry's case is related to her smuggling ring.

After the president of Namibia requests aid in stopping rhino poaching for the third year in a row, Elizabeth asks the team to come up with a more comprehensive solution to save the animals from extinction. They end up getting a unique solution from an employee in the diplomatic health services -- she suggests an educational campaign in Vietnam about alternative treatments for ED, like Viagra, instead of folk remedies that don't work, like Rhino horn. The team works to get the campaign off the ground, but the ambassador won't agree to the scheme unless the Viagra is subsidized. Elizabeth pisses off the Sec. of Def. when she goes above his head to get requisitioned helicopters to Namibia more quickly, but still secures his support in using DoD discretionary funds to pay for the Viagra.
