Unthinkable

Synopsis: A convert to Islam sends the U.S. government a tape showing him in three nondescript storage rooms, each of which may contain a nuclear bomb set to detonate in less than a week. Helen Brody, an FBI agent in L.A., is tasked with finding the bombs while a CIA "consultant," known as H, interrogates the suspect who has allowed himself to be caught. The suspect, whose wife and children have left him and disappeared, seems to know exactly what the interrogation will entail. Even as H ratchets up the pressure, using torture over Brody's objection, the suspect doesn't crack. Should H do the unthinkable, and will Brody acquiesce? Is any Constitutional principle worth possible loss of life?

My name is Steven Arthur Younger.

I am an American citizen.

My name is Steven Arthur Younger

and I am an American citizen.

I have...

I have... I have...

I have certain demands.

In the name of Allah the merciful,

and his prophet Muhammad,

peace be upon him.

My name is Yusuf Atta Mohamed.

My former name is Steven Arthur Younger.

Trace has been on him for three weeks now,

turned up nothing.

Goes to mosque, spends time

with his family, he meets friends for tea.

Okay, I'll keep the surveillance guys on him

another week, then I'll pull.

Sorry I'm late.

I was going over the phone logs.

What else do we got? D.J.?

Yeah.

Threat Squad sent us a poison pen.

Another flight school called

about an Arab-sounding man

wanting to take flying lessons.

Flight school?

My record's three in one week.

Hang-gliding schools don't count.

Okay, guys, but we got to check him out.

I'm sorry, but, get into it, please.

Headquarters are doing their review

next week.

We don't have much for show-and-tell.

We're on top of things.

Yeah.

Helen, I think that I may have

something here.

I went back over those new files from CIA

and I found this. Henry Humphries.

Now there's actually nothing about him

in the file,

it's all been redacted,

but his wife Rina is a Bosnian.

- Bosnian?

- Yes.

And from what I can tell

through all the redacting,

she was involved in certain objectionable

activities during the war there.

It doesn't say what, but she's

a devout Muslim, she lives this side of town.

So why doesn't she go to our mosque?

So, I called CIA and asked for open...

Phil.

A, we have no Bosnian connection,

B, Muslim women

don't have to go to mosque,

and C, if anyone is going to ask a favor

of another agency, it will be me.

Oh, shoot.

Right. Okay, I'm sorry.

Phil?

It's good work. Why don't you look into it?

Okay.

Yes. Thank you.

You were a first office agent once too,

you know.

Yeah, I don't really remember.

I'm gonna go inside,

fix you guys some lunch, okay?

Okay.

Who's that?

Oh, it's the mailman.

No. It's the mailwoman today.

She's cute. You want to see?

You always check out

the postal workers?

Every day.

...and we want to cooperate here on this.

Now a dangerous fugitive

is apparently wanted

in connection with a shooting

that took place earlier today.

Yeah, I understand,

but just because he's buying fertilizer,

doesn't necessarily mean

he's making a bomb.

I don't know, maybe he's planting

a garden full of roses for all I know.

Do you recognize this man?

His name is Steven Arthur Younger,

he's originally from Akron, Ohio.

He is considered extremely dangerous

and should not be approached...

You guys seen this?

Aroused by the news girl, Vince?

Sexy voice, sexy blond hair.

Aroused? Last time he got aroused

was 1978.

Yeah, with your mother.

A nationwide...

In addition, authorities have given us

pictures of these locations.

If you can identify these places,

please call the 800 number on your...

Federal authorities

are asking for your help...

It's on every channel. Who authorized this?

Leo, call the Phoenix PD, will you?

Find out what's going on.

That suspect has been identified

as Steven Arthur Younger,

and he's wanted in connection

with the murder of a police officer...

I recognize this guy.

Phoenix PD

doesn't know anything about this.

All their guys are accounted for.

Who's covering this guy, Younger?

- Oh, shit, he's one of mine.

- Get his file.

Vince, get the Phoenix Field Office

on the line.

Why does the TV have this before we do?

All right. Steven Arthur Younger,
