Under the watchful eye of the Mothership, Ryan Nichols jumps over a wall, kills some random guy, and breaks into a building. He runs through the abandoned space until he pulls a gun and aims it at Eli Cohen's head. Eli has his gun out, too, and when he sees it is Ryan he calmly says, "Judas come to complete his betrayal." Proving that not only does he have ice water in his veins even when a gun is pointed at his face, but that he also knows the New Testament of the Bible and can quote it at will and in the most dire circumstances despite being Jewish. Bravo! Father Travis would be proud. The lights turn on overhead and Ryan finds himself surrounded. Eli orders him to be taken alive, but then kicks him a few times for good measure.
Over in Long Island or Queens or wherever it is that an FBI agent in New York City can afford a three bedroom detached house with a backyard and lots of light, Tyler, Joe, and Erica Evans all laugh heartily and play family. Erica makes a funny and you realize that you NEVER see her smile EVER. She flirts with Joe a little and then her phone rings and her smile fades. It's Eli and he has Ryan. Erica is confused -- how did Ryan end up there? Eli explains that Ryan tried to kill him and that either by his hand or by Erica's Ryan Nichols is going to die today. Then we get a close up of Ryan's bloodied face. It's not going on a Christmas card anytime soon.
A V tracker is tracking Anna's number one tracker, so when Ryan is taken hostage, Anna knows immediately. Her new No.2, Mr. Turtleneck, who hasn't realized that humans change their clothes occasionally, reports that Ryan is a prisoner of Eli Cohen's and they can launch an attack immediately. Anna thinks it will be better if they alert the authorities and allow them to take down the Fifth Column while the Vs just hang out in space looking pretty. Mr. Turtleneck goes to make an anonymous call to the FBI, even though there is no good reason not to just call the FBI and say they tracked the killers, but whatever! Who cares about logic!
