Ryan is rehabilitated and must rebuild his company, which lost precious contracts and DC credit. Yet he insists to spend time with Annie and look out for Auggie, for whom he gets a bodyguard, Pete, after a physical outburst against the medical examiner who refused to rule alcoholic vet comrade Tony's death a murder rather then OD, got him arrested, and a state of the art computer. It proves vital to guide Annie's mission to link the rare poison, made only in six labs, to Belenko, who passed near one, in Essen (Germany). There she tails chemist Britta Kaplan and spots Russian FSM agent turned killer Olga Akarova, but exhausts Auggie's patience with self-righteous risks and surprise twists. Calder is delighted how much information his lover Sydney got from the Russian DC embassy diplomat and insists to keep using her. A polygraph test makes Joan fear prosecution for her unsavory Balkans past, but Arthur'sources say she's vetted for some promotion. Auggie and Pete are abducted. Written by KGF Vissers
