Now, Senator Friedman, you

have been a harsh critic...

of the President in recent months

over his treatment of Russia.

Russia is back. Their president

has stated unequivocally...

their desire to knock us back to 1985.

They've reignited

their nuclear program.

Just last week they dropped three

Akula class subs in the Bering Sea.

Our myopia over

the Middle East...

has caused us to miss the big bear that's

just sitting in the middle of the room.

Now, Senator Darden, you have numerous

business interests inside Russia.

Do you share Senator

Friedman's fears here?

My interests, as you

call them, in Russia...

are strictly as a trade partner

for the good people of my state.

All this saber rattling is basically

Senator Friedman's attempt...

to get his budget

up for next year.

Oh, Please. Russia now has ten

times the number of covert agents...

within United States borders

as it did during the Cold War.

What are we talking about? Besides,

wouldn't it be wise for you...

to divest your interest of what you

have in Russia at a time like this?

I am very transparent about all

of my financial transactions...

which is why, you know, that

I did those things. Excuse me.

The President would suggest that fear

is not helpful right now, Senator...

that fear is obviously a very big

component of any politician's toolbox...

but that it is not going

to help toward progress.

Leaving.

Thank God.

Hello?

You haven't accessed the money.

Yeah, well, it's been

a little warm around here.

We had a deal, Senator.

We have expectations.

I don't give a good goddamn

about your expectations.

Don't call

here again.

Bastard's making a deal.

Yeah, or blowing one off.

Where does

that leave us?

Darden just made contact. It

looks like he's moving now.

Oh shit! He's down! He's

down! Behind the building!

This is a domestic case!

You have no jurisdiction,

authority, or right to be here.

We've been trailing this

guy for the past month.

This is a crime scene, not

a goddamn terrorist attack!

You're going

to have to wait.

Yeah? What am I

supposed to wait for?

For him.

There you go, sir.

Director Highland.

Sir, why is the CIA-

This is Agent Weaver.

Yes, sir.

Yes, sir.

We're out!

Who the hell was that?

Director Bell. He wants us out.

No questions and not a word.

You guys were

on the stakeout?

Yes, sir. He's had contact with

Moscow off and on for a month now.

But he never went

any further-

We know that. What

happened here tonight?

Someone grabbed him from

behind. Right in our blind spot.

It all happened

so goddamned fast.

Keep your eye on it!

Excuse me? Do you know the time?

No, no. I don't have a watch. Sorry.

It's okay. Just, my husband

said he'd be here by nine.

Oh.

Which boy is yours?

Decker, the second

baseman.

Oh, yeah.

He's good.

Got a strong arm.

I'm Molly.

PauI. Hey.

Which one's yours?

One more, guys!

Oh, no, I don't,

I don't have-

No, I live

nearby here.

I come by just to see

a game once in a while.

That's really nice.

Not a care

in the world, huh?

Jeez!

I never thought I'd see the day when

someone got the drop on Paul Shepherdson.

Yeah, yeah. How did you get in here?

It's what we do.

The phone rings,

too, you know.

It's Cassius.

He's back.

Tom.

Cassius is

long gone.

He hasn't even been heard

from in over 20 years.

Tell that

to Senator Darden.

He's Iying in an alley

with his throat slit.

Then it's a copycat.

That's what everyone is

saying. Well, almost everyone.

Tom, there was a point where I

knew this man better than myself.

Cassius is dead.
