Cullen picks up Sam and they go to check out the scene where the man was found hanging. They find out the victim is Tom Olsen. Sam is upset about the death. He and Tom were Navy Seals together. As Sam talks to the FBI the real Tom Olsen comes up. It turns out someone stole Tom’s ID several weeks ago. It was a set up to find Michelle. Just as Sam calls to warn Michelle, three men break into the house and kidnap Michelle.

He refuses to cooperate. Marty and Kensi see that a building across the street has a camera so they download the images. The team gets a call with video of Michelle. The kidnappers say that Khaled must be released or Michelle will die. They are keeping her in an air tight room with only 8 hours of oxygen.
Hetty realizes that Khaled is in the same prison as Sidorov. Michelle thinks they drove 90 minutes to get to the kidding place. The team estimates that she is within a 20,000 mile radius and is being held in a freezer or refrigerator. Sam and Cullen go to the prison to talk to Khaled. He mocks Sam and offers no help.

The money originated in North Sudan. Michelle is down to 4 hours of oxygen. Sam goes to talk to Hetty. Hetty is working on getting Khaled released. They both realize that is their only hope. There is just not enough time to find her. Michelle and Sam talking about their life together and cry.
