The woman shows Magnum a photo of her cousin Sergei, a Russian fugitive who she grew up with him in Russia and moved to the US last month. They spoke every day and last week, she couldn’t reach him anymore. She is worried that something happened to him, he writes articles that don’t make some people happy and he has been trying to keep a low profile. Magnum asks if she has filed a missing person’s report, she says no, they have to be discreet. If people in Russia find out that she is looking for him, her family could be in danger.

Magnum starts to look for Sergei and notices that two cards are following him. Rick meets Magnum at a popular Russian restaurant, the first place to see if they can get a lead. Magnum shows the owner a photo of Sergei, he recognizes him and promises to call Magnum if he sees him again.

Magnum goes to leave the restaurant and the same guys are outside watching him. Magnum goes to approach them and they almost run him down when the speed away. Rick hops in the car with Magnum and they chase after the guys when they get close the guys to pull over and start shooting.

Magnum’s client is back to see him, Higgins does a check in a database on her and her name is Ina and she is ex-Russian FSB and she was posing as Sergei’s cousin, who was killed three days ago.

Ina gets through the gate while Higgins is on the phone with Magnum, she comes into the house and attacks her. Ina wrestles with her and is very close to stabbing Higgins, Kumu has a gun and tries to put a stop it, but the two Russian guys who were chasing Magnum show up.

One of the guys calls Magnum and tells him he has one hour to deliver Sergei. Sergei pulls Magnum’s gun and forces him out of the Ferrari, and drives off telling Magnum that there is more at stake than he knows.

Magnum asks TC to try to find Sergei, Rick picks up Magnum. It doesn’t take long for TC to find Sergei, Rick and Magnum are on it, they are two miles behind them, but they have company, the police. Magnum calls Katsumoto and tells him to call off the police and trust him. The police back off, just in time, they find Sergei. Magnum wants the truth, Sergei says the guys don’t want him, they want the nuke he has in a suitcase.
