Hong Kong postcard. There's a man in his office looking over the painting. Steven steps out from the shadows with his gun drawn. The man tries to call to security but Steven's already taken them out. That was easy.
Steven grabs the painting from the man and asks where Tessa is. She's in the parlor across from the plaza waiting for the money, he says, because he probably doesn't want to be shot in the face.
In the parlor, there are a bunch of old people playing mahjong. Tessa sits alone at a table and sips tea. Outside, the Undercovers plan their approach. Hoyt wants to take point on this because he's still heartbroken. Inside, he finds that she's gone from her table and has gone out the backdoor. Steven spots her outside and just yells, "HEY!" She turns and shoots at him. I mean, what was he hoping to accomplish by just yelling like that and giving away his position? This episode's foot chase ensues. Samantha's able to cut Tessa off in an alley with her car, but Tessa shoots out the windows. She turns to run the other way when Hoyt jumps out from a nook and clubs her really hard with a pole. Like, he probably needlessly broke some of her ribs, but, hey, all's fair in love and war. He picks her up off the ground to collar her and leans in to her ear to let her know that if she wasn't a criminal they could've had a future together. Looks like she dodged a bullet.
At Undercovers House, Sam takes her file folder of her sham marriage alias and burns it in the fireplace. Steven takes a seat beside her and just starts telling the story of his dismissal from training without being prompted because he feels he deserves to tell his side of the story. He was part of a special unit in which only 10 people qualified. He spotted a girl he thought was cute and hacked into a database to find out what her name was. Clive knew about this and ratted Steven out, getting him kicked out of the program. It turns out the girl he risked his career for was Samantha. I won't even dignify this reveal with a sarcastic, "Big surprise." Steven implies it was no coincidence he was able to meet Samantha the next year at headquarters after finding out her name. They kiss. What kind of small-time bullshit is this? We really don't need any more affirmation that these two love each other, OK? We need some intrigue, please. K, thanks.
