Sendhil Ramamurthy had his guess, but was more than happy to be wrong. "I called up [creators] Matt [Corman] and Chris [Ord] ... and they said, 'No, no, no. This is what's happening,'" Ramamurthy tells TVGuide.com. "As soon as they told me, it was like, 'Wow!' It became clear what they were going to do. I was very, very excited."Kari Matchett) dropped a bombshell on him in the finale: He's being relocated to the DPD's Southwest station in Phoenix, forcing Jai to make that mysterious call."He's trying to change his fortune. He's backed up against the wall and he really doesn't have any options," Ramamurthy tells TVGuide.com. "He's always been a little bit of a boy scout. He's, in a way, kind of institutionalized. He went to Yale, he goes through all the right channels. The last scene of the first season, between Henry and Jai, Henry basically says, 'There are two kinds of operatives. There's your kind and there's the kind like Ben Mercer who doesn't follow the rules. Maybe you need to be a little bit more of that.' I think Jai has gone against that simply because of Henry and who he is as a person and his bad reputation in the CIA. Jai doesn't want to turn into his father, but, I think at this point, he realizes that he's going to have to go out to get what he wants."In other words, Jai has no one to rely on but himself now. Perhaps rather naively, the second-generation CIA officer has displayed steadfast loyalty to everyone from his dad — despite Henry trying to blackmail him — to Annie (Piper Perabo) only to have it bite him in the butt. Not even CIA father figure Arthur (Peter Gallagher) came to the rescue after his Phoenix dispatch.So does he turn on one of them with the call? After all, Jai knows Henry is the leak and has so far kept that on the down-low. "He knows he has to leverage any and all information that he has to get out of this situation he's in," Ramamurthy teases.
