Red meets with an associate, apparently it was Red’s courier that was robbed after he wrecked his car. Red reassures his friend that everything is fine and not to worry, he heads off to search for more shipping operations for Red to buy.
Liz joins Red at the restaurant, he tells her that his courier was killed last night is Paris by an assassin. He explains that Isabell Stone is a hit-woman that was hired to take down Red, by any means possible. She’s the one that hit his courier last night, and Red feels that Isabella might even come after Liz to try and get to Red.
Liz heads to the FBI to brief them on Isabella Stone. She sounds like a real piece of work, she burnt down an entire factory and killed 27 kids just to destroy the owner of the factory. Isabella is also the one that hired Natalie to kill Red’s accountant.
While they are discussing Isabella, Ressler gets a mysterious phone call about a doctor’s appointment. He has to be somewhere later, and is irritated that he has to spend the day doing Red’s dirty work. Ressler and Navabi head out to investigate the death of Red’s courier.

Tom tracks down Red he wants to get in contact with Scottie Hargrave. Apparently, Tom is a little more bothered by his father’s death than he admitted. Red won’t help him find Scottie, he tells Scottie that his mother is a liar, and he is better off without her.
Liz and Ressler head to Chip’s address in Virginia, but they can’t get in without a warrant. Liz picks the lock anyways and heads inside. She finds files on Red’s courier, and a file on his friend Sarantos. She calls Red and warns him that Isabella is after Sarantos. Red tries to warn his old friend, but he’s too late, Isabella Stone has already killed his wife and framed Sarantos to make it seem like it was him.
In the car on the way back to the office, Ressler admits to Samar that his brother is scheduled to have major surgery and he’s upset that he’s running around dealing with Red’s problem rather than being there with his family. Ressler grumbles that they basically work for Red, he might as well sign their paychecks.
Ressler and Navabi investigate the hotel where Saranto’s wife was killed, they get security footage of Isabella Stone leaving the hotel.

On the flight on the way home, Red is emotional over the loss of his friend. He calls Cooper and demands to see Isabella Stone as soon as she is detained. Cooper shouts that he is done crossing lines for Red, especially after he tried to break Sarantos out of prison.
