The episode opens with Adilah meeting a mysterious delivery man in the stairwell of the apartment building where she and Imogen are staying. She then switches clothes with the man to leave while avoiding surveillance.

Imogen wakes up and realizes Adilah is gone before she informs all the intelligence agencies surveying the apartment that Adilah has fled.

The news that Adilah is out of sight reaches Max, igniting the American agents' fury. He decides it's time to start breaking some rules regarding Adilah.

Imogen confronts the mysterious delivery man, having obtained his phone by covertly bumping into him.

She almost convinces him to tell her where Adilah is when French intelligence agents shoot and kill the man.

Emir meets with Adilah and tells her that he and their supervisors are questioning her loyalty.

Adilah assures Emir that she is only remaining with Imogen for protection, but Emir tells her that she needs to prove her loyalty by killing Imogen.

Max takes things to the extreme by suggesting to the French and American intelligence agencies that they kidnap Adilah's daughter to get the woman to tell them everything she knows to stop whatever plan they have in motion.

Unbeknownst to Max, Adilah's daughter and aunt are smuggled to safety by operatives in contact with Imogen.

Imogen and Adilah meet, but rather than killing Imogen, Adilah decides to work with her to secure the safety of her daughter.
