James enlists the entire team to guard Dr. Hamed (Christopher Maher), a peace-seeking Middle Eastern diplomat who has a price on his head, and ensure that he gets to an important conference in Tripoli. At a press conference in Miami, Hamed ingests poison, and the team has 24 hours to locate the antidote. Meanwhile, Maddie notices she is being followed. She finds James waiting in her house, but he assures her he only wants to protect her and Charlie. Working with James' associate Snyder (David Meunier), Jesse and Fiona track down a lead through a strip club owner. Snyder injects the same poison into the club owner to ensure he will guide them to the facility where the antidote is stored. The three have to fight through a heavily guarded compound while Michael and Sam race the clock to get Hamed to the site. As Jesse gets out with the antidote to save Hamed's life, an explosion rocks the compound. Snyder sees that Fiona is trapped behind a wall of flame but only saves himself, leaving Michael to rescue Fiona. At a follow-up meeting, James praises the team for their efforts and says that Hamed will be okay. He scolds Snyder for leaving a family member behind, then shoots and kills him in front of everyone.
