Sam is at the loft, drinking his product-placed low-cal beer while using a big map to track the movements of the kidnapper's auto fleet. One circuitous route leads all the way out to a key, which seems like a likely spot to stash a kidnap victim. Michael notices Fi's conspicuous absence, and Sam explains that she's out trying to follow up on their Jesse-sighting. Although clearly disturbed, Michael gets back on task, but since an approach by boat or car is too exposed, they'll have to think of something else. What are they going to do, borrow a submarine?
Michael reports back to Scott, who's ready to move in already, but Michael says they need to do this quietly. "I need you to call one of your drug cartel clients and ask to borrow one of their submersible vehicles they use to bring in cocaine." Hey, I could totally be a spy! Scott lamely protests his clients' innocence, but Michael reminds him, "Your daughter's life is at stake." Oh, yeah, that.
Next thing we know, Sam and Fi are taking delivery of a black, torpedo-shaped craft on a trailer from a tattooed thug. "Do we need to sign anything, or...So, the keys are in it?" Sam asks the thug's retreating back. Oh, and where's Michael? Meeting with Vaughn.
Michael is insisting to Vaughn that he's going to control the snatch and grab of Barrett, but Vaughn is resistant, not least because Jesse has turned up in a hotel in Hialeah under a fake name. Michael smoothly asks Vaughn for the info to pick him up for the operation, and Vaughn hands it right over. That went almost too well, except for the almost part.
Michael tells Fi about it, and Fi confesses to Michael how she and Jesse kissed on the last job. Michael isn't about to make an issue of it, but Fi can't let well enough alone, going on about confusing feelings, and how she thinks that she hurt Jesse even more than Michael did. Which she thinks means she should be the one to approach him. Michael isn't sure about that, but Fi says, "I'll bring your mom." She figures Jesse will be more scared of Madeline than of Fi, which may actually be valid. "Now go save that girl, Michael," Fi says. Michael goes to save the girl.
Michael VOs about how defending a spot is all about allocating resources, so if you plan to sneak into a stronghold, you're best off using a least likely approach. As he climbs out of the ocean onto the back yard of the private island where the safehouse sits, assault rifle at the ready, he VOs that it's dependent on surprise, so the only way it can go wrong is if someone knows you're coming. Cue every armed guy in the island converging on him. Michael surrenders, and out comes Dale, who got the scoop from tapping Scott's ex-wife's phone. He hands Michael a little device with a digital video clip of Becky begging to go home and tells him to take it back to Scott, and tell him that the only way he gets Becky back is if Dale's brother gets sprung. Michael says that there isn't going to be a not guilty verdict, "but there are other ways of keeping him out of prison...Like I said, I'm a miracle worker." "Okay, show me a miracle," Dale dares. We just get shown commercials, which is kind of a rip-off.
