Now...

...if it's

the black widow...

...we'll have to see.

We can extract our operative,

liaise with the FBI

and leave no trace.

Gentlemen, we are in thirty-two

countries, protecting your good names.

Which is why it is essential

very few have ever

heard of ours.

SARAH:
Please give me

the strength to do well.

To not be arrogant.

But to not be weak.

Amen.

(PHONE RINGING)

SARAH:
Hi. Checking in.

JIM:
Where are you?

Delaware Seashore State Park.

I've been sleeping here.

How'd you get there?

Rideshares off Craigslist.

Smart. Any luck?

No. Building confidence.

Meeting dropouts,

counterculture types, freegans.

Have fun.

(CAMERA CLICKS)

(CAMERA CLICKS)

SARAH:
You get any matches

on the pictures I sent you?

JIM:
Just dead ends.

If any of these kids are part

of The East, someone's been...

...covering their

online footprint.

I haven't met anyone even

close to that sophisticated.

What about Trevor Landen?

Served a year for

ski resort vandalism.

Facebook links him to the

Katrina Anarchist Kitchen.

Oh.

I saw him again last night.

He mentioned

hopping to Pittsburgh.

I'll check him out.

FEMALE NEWSREADER: Anti-corporate

activism initially surfaced

with groups like

Earth First!...

...but now more radical

cells, like The East...

(TRAIN HONKING)

It's picking up speed.

I'm looking for The East tag.

GIRL:
I've heard folks from The

East hop out in Pittsburgh.

I heard The East doesn't exist.

(COUNTRY MUSIC PLAYING)

(SINGING)

Said I ain't no doctor

Ain't no doctor's son

Said I ain't no doctor

Ain't no doctor's son

But I'll cling to him

Until the doctor come

(LOUD RATTLING)

Everybody out!

Move it now!

Let's go! Get up!

Move it, move it.

Come on.

Move! Let's go!

Get off my train!

Let's go.

That means you, too,

you dirty queer!
