The Secret Service is questioning Grim, he tells them that he mailed the drive to a friend named Stacey, she is a reporter. The Secret Service are on their way to the mailbox, but Aram found out the box was emptied three hours ago. Liz thinks they still might have a chance to get the drive before the Secret Service.

Red goes to see Cooper, asks him if he likes the anticipation of finding the dossier.
The task force opens the file and finds out that Diaz was planning a hit on himself. It is going to happen at a debate and the Third Estate is going to be there, who else would Anna McMahon want to blame for killing the president.
McMahon doesn’t want the president knowing the truth, she and her man lie to him about getting the dossier.
