He needs to get in, find the bomb they are hiding, and get out.

Things are certainly tense, Elizabeth tries to change the subject, and asks Seledad about her upcoming wedding plans. They make small talk about wedding dresses, and Stevie’s upcoming nuptials.
Jay arrives to work late, and in a miserable mood. He has been separated from his wife Abby for four weeks now, and sleeping on his friends’ couches. He rants at everyone at the office that they should be worried about the peace treaty, not fawning over Luis and Seledad’s relationship. Later, Jay confesses to Matt that he thinks Abby may be seeing someone else.

Ian arrives at the Covenant of John compound, Henry and another agent are watching Ian through a camera that he has attached to him. The radicals don’t exactly welcome him with open arms, they put a bag over Ian’s head and says that it’s time for Ian to prove his loyalty. Henry has a bad feeling about this – but there’s no way they can get back-up out to the commune in time.
At the office, Jay is upset, he checked his wife’s phone records and she has been calling a strange number every day ever since he left their apartment.

Meanwhile, Daisy has been dating Kevin from budget and planning. After confiding in Nadine that she was really starting to like Kevin and things were getting a little serious, Daisy heads to Kevin’s office to meet up with him for dinner. When she arrives, he appears to be sleeping on the couch in his office. She tries to wake him up, and realizes that something is seriously wrong, she calls 911 and tells the operator that she thinks Kevin is dead.

Elizabeth arrives at the office and she and her team start plotting ways to get Luis and Seledad back together so that they can save the peace treaty.
Daisy heads to Stevie’s apartment and drags Seledad off the couch. She’s been camped out there for two days. Meanwhile, Jay tracks down Luis to give him a pep-talk about getting back together with Seledad. Daisy and Jay drag Romeo and Juliet back to the White House to meet with Elizabeth, she forces them to sit down and listen to what she has to say.

Later that night, Daisy is home alone in her bath robe, watching TV. There’s a knock at her door, the FBI has come to bring her in for questioning, and they have a warrant to search her apartment.
Elizabeth rushes to the room where Daisy is being held. She explains that Kevin’s real name was Joseph, and he was an undercover CIA agent working in the White House. The FBI has opened an official investigation because Kevin didn’t die of a heart attack…he was murdered.
