Liz gets ready for her trip to Montreal. Meanwhile, Blake is spreading his wings by getting involved in policy making under the supervision of Kat. He is upset that there funding has been cut and they need to suck up to an oil magnet for the World Expo pavilion to generate green jobs.

In the meeting, Mr. Harding tells Blake he needs to nix the natural gas. He wants nuclear power. Blake is annoyed. After the meeting, he rants to Kat.

Henry is teaching his students about war crimes. Meanwhile, Jason and his girlfriend have traveled with Liz to Montreal. Outside their hotel, there are demonstrations going on involving the North Pole, climate change and Canada’s latest declaration that they have rights to the Arctic because one of their sunken ships was recently discovered.

In the meeting, Liz suggests that they investigate the arctic bed before anyone gets to stake a claim. They call a recess. Out in the lobby, Jay and Liz are talking when an explosion occurs. Liz runs to find Jason. The secret service stops her.

They secure Liz in the stairway. Jay figures out that Jason is in the hotel on his phone. She rushes out and runs to his room, banging on the door. He opens in his robe. She peers in. Piper is in there, Luther Vandross is playing. There are flowers. She leaves the room embarrassed. Outside, Jay tells her the summit has been canceled.

They head home. Liz tells Henry she cannot believe this has happened. Jason runs upstairs. Henry is upset as well about his rock star student who has turned in a paper he plagiarized.

Jay calls Liz. Russian assets were behind the explosion at the summit.

Liz and Kat meet with a Russian official over Skype. He denies all wrongdoing and tells her that his country has a right to the Arctic.

Henry tracks down his student Andrew in church sitting by himself. He tells Andrew that he turned in that paper on purpose and he wants to know why. He explains that he cannot kill and he wants to tell his mother, a national security advisor, but she wouldn’t understand. He wouldn’t be able to live with the guilt if he took a life. He would rather her think he had a lapse in judgment.
