Jill reveals that it isn’t a coincidence that she is at the same restaurant with them, she has been looking for Peter. She needs his help on a case.

Neal is showing Rebecca Chapter #13 of the Codex. Rebecca confirms that the chapter is authentic. Neal makes a major discovery, and realizes that the pages of The Codex are actually pieces of a puzzle. They put the puzzle together, and realize it is a picture of a stained glass window. Rebecca is so excited she kisses Neal, Mozzie interrupts them.

Jill visits Peter, and he kicks Neal out of his office. She tells Peter that she is tracking down a man named Mason Sadowski. He invented a microchip that can hack into any computer system. Jill is going to go undercover and pose as a buyer for the chip. She wants Peter to go undercover with her, and pose as her partner.

Peter heads home and tries to break the news to Elizabeth that he is going undercover with Jill, before he can tell her Jill knocks on the door and tells Peter they have to do recon. Elizabeth is less than thrilled, and even more annoyed when Peter and Jill won’t even tell her what the case is about.

Jones and Neal are trying to track down the man that is impersonating an FBI agent. Meanwhile Jill and Peter’s recon mission has turned into a heart-to-heart about losing Segal. Peter still feels guilty about his death, and Jill is comforting him.

Jones and Neal are cruising around a shady neighborhood. In Peter’s car, trying to bait the FBI imposter. He has been using an FBI badge to commandeer people’s rides, and then steals them.

Madowski has finally left his hotel room, Jill and Peter sneak into his hotel room to snoop around. Madowski returns and they have to sneak back out of the room without any information.

Peter heads back to the office to interrogate the man they found with Segal’s badge and gun. The man claims he didn’t murder Segal though. He says that he was robbing a liquor store while Segal was shot, and that the store caught him on camera. He claims that he found the badge and gun in the garbage afterwards.

Peter heads home, and Elizabeth is waiting up for him. She asks about Jill and Peter’s case, but Peter tells her he can’t share any information. She is hurt, because they always discuss his cases, no matter how “classified” they are. She doesn’t get what is so special about Jill’s case.

The next day Jill and Peter learn that they are not the only ones looking for Sadowski’s chip. He is being stalked by mercenaries who plan on stealing it from him. Peter and Jill have to move fast. Peter wants to bring in Jones to help keep track of the mercenaries, Jill agrees, but insists Jones can’t know why he is following them.

Jones is following the mercenaries, and they are inside a diner. Peter and Jill and preparing to go to Madowski’s room and make the buy while the mercenaries are in the diner.

Elizabeth has forced Neal to come along with her to stalk Jill. She is sitting outside watching Peter and Neal head into Madowski’s hotel. She hops out of the car with Neal to follow them inside.

Jones lost the mercenaries, they slipped out the back. He tries to call Peter and tell him that the mercenaries are no longer at the restaurant and he may be in danger, but Jill won’t let Peter pick up his phone, she wants “radio silence.”

At the hotel, Elizabeth runs into Madowski, and recognizes him from photos she saw on Peter’s desk. She tries to stall him, but he says he has to go, he offers to give her his number though. Elizabeth agrees, and hands Madowski her phone, when she isn’t looking he slips his chip into the pack of her phone. He knows the mercenaries are looking for him and he doesn’t want them to find it. As soon as he walks away from Elizabeth, the mercenaries grab him, and lead him upstairs. Elizabeth and Neal follow Madowski and the mercenaries. Elizabeth reveals that Madowski put his number in her phone, Neal takes the back off her phone and finds the chip.

Peter and Jill are in trouble. The mercenaries have Jill, Peter, and Madowski held captive at gunpoint. Elizabeth barges into the hotel room and tells the mercenaries that she has the chip. She is able to distract the mercenaries so that Neal can sneak in and get Peter and Jill free. Jones arrives with the rest of the team, and the day is saved.
