The Enemy Within begins tonight at Clearview Airport in Butler, Pennsylvania. Sharon Connelly, Head of Operations Alcon International boards a private with Judith Pierson, COO Alcon International discussing how they need the system up and running this week. The pilots are cleared for takeoff as Will Keaton (Morris Chestnut) and Erica Shepherd (Jennifer Carpenter) stand outside talking about Mendoza said anything, but Daniel Zain (Raza Jaffrey) hasn’t been able to get her to talk; Jessica feels she will be loyal to Tal until the end. He says together they need to figure out the end game, whether he likes it or not. Erica thanks him for allowing her to be outside, but he feels she earned it.
Daniel informs Will that a private plane left from Butler to Miami but after 2 hours all communications stopped and the plane landed in an airfield just outside Fairfax, Virginia. They know that the company Alcon, contractors with the CIA, and everyone on board make up the entire operating arms of the company; they believe this could be a counterterrorism issue.
Will, Daniel, Jason Bragg (Noah Mills) and Jacqueline Pettigrew (Cassandra Freeman) join several military men, but just as Daniel is debriefing the military, Anthony Cabrera (James Carpinello) rushes over saying they believe highly classified CIA information is on that plane and there to make sure the intel doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. Cabrera has orders to get the intel while Will worries about the people inside.
They surround the plane, lowering the stairs as Will walks into the plane. They find multiple fatalities on board and it looks like everyone is dead and the two pilots are missing. They are seen driving with the laptop, saying they will upload the files when they get to the club; no witnesses nor survivors.
Hannah Shepherd (Sophia Gennusa) sits with her mother, Erica in a room that has plenty of light and windows. She is nervous about parallel parking; Erica tells her to distract that emotion and the nerves will go away, giving her tips on how to separate her emotions from what she has to do, or her emotions will sabotage her. Erica learns that Hannah feels bad for her dad sometimes because she doesn’t tell him the truth about seeing her; promising when she gets her license she will come more often. She asks Erica if she could go anywhere where would she go. Erica says anywhere as long as it is with Hannah. Hannah talks about being her getaway driver, but Erica says that driver has to be confident.
Will reveals everything the FBI knows about Alcon to Cabrera; only wondering what they are doing for the CIA. Anthony refuses to reveal anything, excusing himself from Will’s office. Bragg thought the CIA and FBI were playing nice since 9/11. Will thinks the passengers were killed because of something they had with them on the plane. Daniel reveals that Tom Humphrey and Alberto Diaz were the scheduled pilots for the flight today, but both were found dead this morning and someone else using their stolen identity flew the plane. He delegates tasks, including Kate Ryan (Kelli Garner) to check out surveillance of the area. Daniel confirms to Bragg that he has seen this before, once!
Jackie informs Keaton that the flight manifest reveals 2 pilots a flight attendant and 6 passengers but the original manifest was 7 passengers, changed at the last minute. Kate reveals her name was Kathy Hong (Michelle Krusiec), who specializes in large format, self-sustaining systems for buildings that run solely on renewable energy. Kate believes she is on the run since she is liquidating her assets. Will wants her found immediately. Will wants Erica to be with him because she can help him find out what Alcon was doing for the CIA and find the men who did it.
Kate found Kathy’s phone pinging from an Egyptian Antiquities store, an art auction house. Will uncuffs Erica as Bragg finds it odd that she would meet there after 6 of her coworkers were murdered, wondering if she is meeting someone or liquidating assets. Will asks Erica if there is going to be a problem, she doesn’t know saying they are in this together.
Inside an auction is taking place, Erica suggests they separate but Will says that is not how it works. He checks in with Jackie and Bragg then he and Erica proceed to the auction room, where Erica spots her believing she is selling her assets to go on the run. Will tells the other two where she is, warning them that Hong has two bodyguards with her; he tells them to hold their positions. Will and Erica see her going into the bathroom, Erica wants to go in alone, feeling she won’t get any answers if she has a chaperone; Will agrees to let Erica handle it.
Hong is on the phone when Erica walks in, she tells Hong to dump her sim card into the toilet claiming she is security for Alcon International, telling her about her colleagues’ deaths. She says if she can track her by the card, so can the people who are after them. Erica asks if there is somewhere else they can talk, asking Hong to lead the way if she wants Erica’s help. She wants to talk to her contact at Alcon, Erica promises if she can get them out of there.
Erica walks with Hong, as Will orders them to hang back but don’t let their eyes off of either woman. Erica asks her in a private room why the 6 executives were killed, but Hong brings her out of camera view, heading outside. Will reveals to the team that Shepherd and Hong are gone; he runs out the building having no idea where they went.
Hong has her security hold Erica captive, revealing there is no one named Ahman at Alcon Securities and demands to know who Erica is. Will wants Kate to run a trace on Erica’s GPS tracker. Erica tells Hong that she is cooperating with the FBI, suggesting they put their gun down. Hong isn’t trusting anyone, swearing she doesn’t know anything about the executions of the executives. Erica takes the gun, shooting the guards, Hong finally revealing she wasn’t on the plane to find people had been in her apartment, looking for a laptop with her work for a sustainable dormitory. Erica suggests she is in danger from these people as they don’t like loose ends; Will arrives just in time to prevent Erica from being shot.
Will tells Erica that he believes Hong told them everything she knows. Erica doesn’t believe the dorm wouldn’t be worth 6 people’s lives, but Will thinks they could be building a black site, a secret detention center. Will compares the similarities between this and the plane crash that killed her fiance, Laine.
Kate calls them in as she plays the recording from the black box in the plane. Erica asks what is it? Will rushes out of the room, pulls out a thumb drive, telling Kate to play it; when they listen to the recordings, they all realize it is the same pilot who murdered the operatives a few years ago, he realizes Laine’s killer is still alive.
Kate feels it doesn’t make sense because Laine’s killer was on the plane and no one survived. Will feels guilty for not knowing the man was still alive as Daniel tells him no one could have known. Will needs to know who he is, Erica says she can give him the pilot’s name, which was caught on chatter, but no one paid attention to it because everyone believed he died on the plane. His name is Alexander and Will tells her that Anna Cruz said that name before she died, wanting to know why Erica lied to him when he questioned her. She didn’t want him to hurt over a dead man and only stay focused on Tal. Will angrily tells Kate to escort Erica back to her cell.
Will tells Daniel that the guy is still alive and killing people; Daniel can’t imagine what Will is going through as Will insists they have to find him. Daniel doesn’t like the idea of working with Shepherd, and Will doesn’t want Erica Shepherd helping on this one. He asks Daniel to wake up Carly Mendoza because he needs to speak to her.
Carla is in interrogation with Daniel, with will watch. He demands to know where they can find Alexander Chigorin (Dale Pavinski). She smirks saying she doesn’t know what he is talking about. Daniel knows she is lying, demanding to know where he is as he works for Tal; Carla tells him he is wasting his time as they cannot stop him. Daniel demands that she tell him what they are planning, but she remains mum.
Jackie tells Erica she has a visitor, not her daughter but her ex-husband, Christopher (Noah Bean) and she is letting him in because he threatened to come back with his lawyer if they didn’t. He confronts Erica, saying that Hannah isn’t her daughter and hasn’t been in 3 years. He is angry that she lied to him for her, sneaking out there taking two buses and walking half a mile to get there. He wants to know what kind of mother would allow a 15-year-old to walk around the city at night. She begs him not to punish Hannah because he hates her; he reminds her that this isn’t about her, it’s about his daughter. He harshly tells her all the things Hannah went through when Erica was arrested, things she wouldn’t know since he was the one raising her. He knows Erica loves Hannah but he cannot let her hurt Hannah again.
Kate finds Will, saying Alexander Chigorin is in his 30s and special forces and one of Tal’s most senior lieutenants. She shows him the video, showing him who Chigorin. She is running the plates now.
Brighton Beach, NY
FBI arrives with heavy tanks, revealing this place is a known underground Russian social club. He wants to extract him alive but the mission isn’t going to be easy. Inside, Chigorin is complaining about how long it is taking. Erica calls for the guard, saying she needs to talk to anyone in Intelligence as it is important. She is told everyone is out, but no one will tell her where. Once the guard leaves, Erica pulls out her phone, remembering what Carla had said. She calls the number to warn Tal that the FBI knows where Chigorin is and they need to get him out immediately.
FBI raids the social club, arresting everyone on the main floor. Without making too much noise they walk up the stairs. Chigorin gets a message “FBI RUN” on his phone. He grabs the laptop and runs, while his accomplice cocks his gun. Will realizes Chigorin got out of the building and races to catch him but when he is spotted Chigorin runs. Will is able to take him down but the fight gets very physical. Will is repeatedly punching him in the face, visualizing Laine’s face when a car pulls up and gunfire rings out; Will hides as Chigorin is saved but he left the laptop behind.
Will is cleaning up in the bathroom when he notices all the bruises on him. Kate walks with him later, checking if he is okay as Will feels guilty for having him in his hands and him getting away. Kate shows him the plans that Chigorin had stolen. They figure out Tal was planning something there, but the question is what? Kate shares with Will that she misses Laine, thinking it would feel different after all these years, but it doesn’t. She knows he doesn’t like to talk about it but if he wants to, she is there.
Will comes to see Erica, revealing they didn’t get Chigorin. He demands her to reveal anything else she is keeping from him. He asks about the day Anna Cruz was killed, Tal called him on her cellphone, telling him what Laine said before she died. Will feels Chigorin knows exactly what happened on that plane and he needs to know. Erica says the black box was destroyed on the ground and she knows from personal experience that the CIA has lied about the boxes before.
Will approaches Anthony Cabrera, asking if it exists, but he doesn’t want to argue about a black box that was destroyed 3 years ago. Will demands to hear it and Cabrera brings him into a private room, telling him it is all set up, all he has to do is press play. Will listens to the audio, getting emotional as he hears the gunshots and then silence. He can hear Laine’s voice and he begins to cry; literally hearing the plane go silent on impact.
Chigorin meets with Tal, who is pleased to see him. He needs him healthy as there is so much work still to do. Tal reveals it was Erica Shepherd who warned him about the FBI. Tal feels it is time to bring Erica in. Erica sits lonely in her cell.
