Michael calls Sam, who says they're about to be ready to meet them, with Madeline's help. Michael's not happy she's in on this, but there's not time to argue. It's only a matter of time before the Russians catch up with them, with their fancy spy satellites and a Russian version of Chloe O'Brian somewhere helping them out and all. Too bad Miami doesn't have any covered parking structures where Michael can ditch the Charger for a while. After they hang up -- and Cowley finishes a stump speech in what appears to be the middle of a street -- Madeline goes up to Cowley and quietly advises him to tell his people he's driving hope alone. "You and I have a meeting with Paul Anderson at your house, and he's ready to talk all about the Columbian thing if you don't." Cowley tries to blow her off, but Madeline's threat to start screaming about their secret affair in the 70s brings him around. Wow, did Michael's dad know about that? No wonder he was always so angry.
Marv shows up at a hotel suite to find Fi waiting for him -- and then Jesse, in the back room. Jesse argues with Marv, who admits that he doesn't want to believe Jesse stole the file, but there was simply too much evidence against him. Jesse says he got burned because he got too close, and asks for the name of the bank Kendra mentioned last week. Marv agrees to make some calls, and to meet Fi tomorrow after his wife goes to sleep. "It's a date," Fi says. Oh, Fi, don't rub it in.
Sam and Madeline deliver Cowley to his home, where he goes inside to find Paul and Michael waiting for him. He's not thrilled to see either of them, in addition to not believing a word of their story of marauding Russians. Paul shows Cowley the blackmail letter, which turns out to be no leverage at all; Cowley says he pinned the whole thing on a two-star general, so he's clean. Which I think this letter would kind of dispute, but Michael seems to buy it. Cowley starts threatening yearly tax audits for Sam and Madeline (probably unaware that Sam's already been audited), and threatens Paul as well. Michael holds Paul back, until Cowley says he'll throw more dirt on Michael's grave just for the hell of it, whereupon he lets Paul go. And Paul obligingly beats the congressman into a coma on his own floor. Belatedly pulling him off the unconscious politician, Michael understates, "Probably shouldn't have done that."
After the break, Sam and Madeline have joined them inside, wondering what to do with Cowley, knowing that the Russians are on their way. Michael says they can't leave him to the assassins, but Sam protests, "I am not kidnapping a member of the House of Representatives today." Bad day to make that declaration, Sam. Michael, Paul, and Sam seem to come up with another plan that involves turning Cowley's house "inside out" while killing "two birds with one stone," so apparently they're hoping to take advantage of the Russians' aversion to mixed metaphors. I'm not following any of this, but Madeline can tell she should probably catch a cab. Good call.
