Tonight’s episode of American Odyssey kicks off with hundreds of people marching through a desert in Mali, North Africa while they are chanting. The procession comes to a stop when a horse collapses – an old man orders a couple Aslam to help him with the wagon that the horse was pulling before it collapsed, he asks him about Taureg.
Peter is in the bathroom in the middle of the night having a meltdown and splashing water on his face. Peter’s wife finds him and demands to know what is wrong – he breaks down in tears and confesses that the drone pilot is dead because of him. The next morning, Peter’s kids Josh and Maya come downstairs and get ready for school. The news is on – Sophia Tsaldari, the frontrunner for the prime minister of Greece position is in New York. Peter’s daughter Maya raves about amazing Sophia is and asks her dad if she can meet her.
Harrison shows up at his apartment and tells his girlfriend that he was with Russell all night because a man named Bob Hopper is missing. His girlfriend doesn’t want to hear it – he explains that the woman named Odelle that is supposed to be dead emailed Bob and he had proof that she was alive. But, now Bob is missing. Harrison’s girlfriend agrees to look in to it for him.
Meanwhile in Africa, Alsam and Odelle are sitting in the desert and eating off to the side by themselves. Aslam warns her that she needs to stop talking to people because she is a woman and they are starting to notice something is not right about her. Aslam says that tomorrow the Tuaregs will meet up with 100’s more and travel with them to Timbuktu. That is where Aslam will leave her – she says there she will meet up with Colonel Green.
Peter arrives at work in there is a protest outside – picketers are claiming that Odelle is still alive and there is a cover-up. Meanwhile, Harrison meets up with Russell and he has lists of possible addresses for Bob Offer.
In Africa, Odelle and Aslam are marching in the pilgrimage – several jeeps full of men with guns arrive, Aslam says it is “Ansar Dine.” They stop the pilgrimage and begin walking through the marchers and shouting, they have pictures of Odelle and are asking them if they have seen her. Odelle tries to blend in with the crowd and avoid the men with guns as they question everyone. Aslam lies and says he has never seen Odelle.
Harrison heads to the first address that he got for Bob Offer and the door is wide open – he finds a woman sleeping in the livingroom – he hops on the computer and begins typing in possible passwords. The computer starts playing loud music and says “access denied” – it wakes up the old woman. Harrison explains that he is a friend of Bob’s, the old woman has no idea where he is. Harrison offers to stick around and make her something to eat.
Odelle and Aslam are camping with the other members of the Tuareg – the Ansan Dine are a few sand dunes away and firing gunshots in to the sky to torment them. At home, Odelle’s daughter is watching the news – the man being interviewed insists that Odelle is dead, despite the protests. Her father catches her, and she tells him that she knows that her mom isn’t dead. He tries to reason with her, but she storms off.
Sophia Tsaldari arrives in NYC, and between her motorcade and the jihad protests – the city is backed up for miles, Peter is stuck in the traffic jam. Sophia makes her way through the crowd and shakes hands and smiles for the reporters. Peter’s daughter Maya tries to make her way through the crowd to meet Sophia. She shakes Sophia’s hand and tells her that she is “going to change the world.”
Odelle’s husband returns home – he brought Suzanne her homework from school. He says that she was invited to her friends Samantha’s house for a dinner with her parents, but she doesn’t want to go. She shouts at her dad that he cant just go to a dinner and pretend Odelle isn’t out there, she tells him that if he was out there Odelle wouldn’t give up on him.
In the desert Odelle is washing her face – the old man that was suspicious of her before catches her and pushes her, her wrap falls of her face and he realizes she is a woman. Before he can run and tell the others, Aslam attacks him from behind and proceeds to strangle him with a rope. Odelle covers the old man’s face so that the other don’t hear him shouting and gasping for air. Once he is unconscious Odelle tells Aslam to let go of him before he kills him. Aslam refuses and continues to strangle him, he says they don’t have a choice. When the old man is dead Aslam drops him and then begins shaking and crying.
Peter orders someone at his office to get him the merger records on Sisoto. He learns that the deal was closed and they are off from it, Sisoto just called for all of the evidence. He rushes downstairs and pays off the man loading the files in to a truck, then he begins rummaging through the boxes. He gets a phone call, he is needed in McDonald’s office ASAP. Peter runs upstairs and sits down with McDonald – Baker, the head of SSE, has paid them a visit. Baker says that SSE has $2 Billion in holdings tied up in Greece. McDonald wants Peter to arrange a meeting with Sophia Tsaldiri because he has ties to Greece.
Harrison runs in to Ruby in the park, he knows she lied about being a reporter for Time Magazine. He demands to know where Bob Offer is – she was the last person that he saw Bob with. Everyone on the internet is waiting for Harrison to post proof that Odelle is alive – and Bob is the only person with the proof and he is missing. Ruby said he might have been picked up by the police at a G8 protest and taken in to custody.
Later that night Peter sits down to have dinner with his wife and kids, his daughter Maya is bragging about getting to meet Sophia. There is a knock at the door – the FBI have arrived to arrest him for Gentry’s death, they have a warrant. Peter argues that it is a mistake – he is dragged away in handcuffs and the FBI and police swarm his house and begin confiscating his computer and other things. His family watches as he is thrown in a police car and driven away.
Harrison and Ruby arrive at the police station and they run in to Bob – he is acting strangely, he doesn’t even recognize Ruby. He says he needs to go home and tries to leave, Harrison tells him that he needs the email from Odelle. Russell calls and says that the police are clearing out the park – he needs to get down there ASAP. Ruby volunteers to take Bob to his house and get the email while Harrison goes to the park where the protest is. As they are leaving they pass Peter’s wife and kids in the waiting room, they are waiting for him to get out of questioning.
Harrison arrives at the park and the news crew whisks him away – they are preparing to put him on the news live, and he still hasn’t received the email from Bob. The reporters are rushing him, they tell Harrison that he needs to read the email now before the police kick the hundreds of people out of the park. Harrison’s phone goes off and he finally has the email – he grabs the megaphone and hops up in front of the crowd and says that he has an email from Odelle that was sent 24 hours after she was supposedly dead. The crowd cheers – and so does Odelle’s daughter Suzanne who ran away from home and came to the protest. Harrison tweets the email and everyone checks their phones – but its not an email, it is actually a video of a cat playing the piano. Chaos ensues when the crowd realizes that there is no email.
In the desert Odelle and Aslam are marching again – the 10 year old boy of the man that Aslam killed demands to know where his father is, he knows Aslam did something to him. He takes out a knife and tries to stab Aslam and Odelle grabs his arm and bends it backwards so he can’t hurt Aslam. The marchers all stop and watch the altercation – and then they turn on Odelle, her wrap is removed and they realize she is an imposter. They all begin attacking her and beating her with sticks – she falls on the ground bloody and unconscious. Aslam runs off in to the desert when he realizes that he cant save her and is severely outnumbered.
Peter heads home and reassures his wife that it was all a misunderstanding – she’s not convinced, someone is trying to frame him for murder. He explains that someone was just firing a warning shot, they want him to stop looking in to SIsoto. He puts on his shoes and says he is going for a run and jogs outside and down the street. Peter jogs passed a black car with a man sitting in it and the car begins following him, he cuts through a park and spots the same man in the car following him again and sitting in front of his house. He shouts at him to stay away from his family and the car drives off.
In the desert Odelle is awake – the men are tying her hands behind her back, she pleads with him and tells them that she has a daughter at home and begs them not to do this. They bury her in sand up to her waist and put a black bag over her head.
Harrison calls Bob and demands to know where the email is – Bob cries that he is sorry and hangs up on Harrison and deletes the file and proof that Odelle is alive. In the desert Alsam arrives with the Ansar Dine in their trucks. They pull Odelle out of the ground and call her the “whore soldier” and throw her in the back of the trucks and drive away.
