Fowler tells them that it was a bigger man that he didn’t know who it was. Kate told Fowler that she really wanted to get away with Neal and was the one who came up with the idea to blow up the plane. Fowler had no idea why the plane exploded early.

Later, Peter shows Fowler a picture of the unnamed man and Fowler tells him he knows who it is - a man he trained with back in the day.

Diana and Peter rush in to catch the killer and Alex turns up at Neal’s place. She tells them that she was just saying good-bye to Neal and leaves. Peter tells Neal why they ran into his place when Neal puts together it wasn’t him that the killer is after, but Mozzie.
