They are celebrating his recent achievement on a test. They see blue lights. Seth isn’t sure why he is being pulled over. He wasn’t speeding. He tells his brother not to disclose that he works for the White House. He doesn’t need it on TMZ.

The president arrives at his destination. He meets with the troops in Afghanistan to have breakfast and celebrate all of their accomplishments.

Kendra reports back to Emily. She thinks she can have Seth’s case sealed. But they have other problems. Leo has been married and he owes back taxes. Emily cannot believe that he never told them. Leo is casual about the whole thing. It was a last minute marriage and he isn’t in touch with her. Kendra thinks that they can argue and get the marriage annulled. Emily tells Leo he needs to play press secretary for the day.

The president sits down with another Afghan leader who also tells him he doesn’t trust him. He is 2 for 2.

Kendra touches base with the President about Alex’s subpoena. Kendra needs to meet with him and Alex to come up with a game plan.

Hannah and Mike head to a nearby safe house to scope it out. She wants to know what his problem is with her. Mike thinks when she is around it seems like the president always needs a lawyer. Just as they get into a heated discussion a bomb goes off ahead on the road. They stop the truck and get out, grabbing their guns and dunking for cover. Night has fallen. Mike climbs out of the ditch and tries to force the shooter out with gunfire. Hannah covers him. Mike gets the man after a couple of shots. They make it to the safe house. Mike heads in. Hannah spits a trail of blood and a code written in blood on the door.

Kendra, Emily, and Seth watch the video of Seth’s traffic stop. Emily and Seth put the pressure on Kendra. They need her to make this go away.

The president meets with several leaders once again. He is getting conflicting reports from them and who is responsible for what bombings.

In court, Kendra shows that the officer is fishing to make a quota. He has repeatedly pulled individuals over for probable cause but failed to arrest any of them for anything. The judge dismisses Seth’s case.

Seth comes to see Emily. She knows he was covering for his brother who was taking pills to stay up to study for his test. Emily is mad Seth would take the blame.
