Premiered: September 20, 2006
With Leo safely at home, King and Knapp set out to wrap up the loose ends that seem to connect Vance to the plot to frame King. However, as Atkins and Archer are also discussing how to expose Vance, something else entirely unfolds when Atkins stumbles onto an elaborate command post at Archer's home that has been used to track Leo Cain's kidnapping. But before he can ask any questions, Atkins is ambushed and killed by the crime's real mastermind - Agent Andy Archer. Meanwhile, though Knapp is certain that Vance is guilty, King isn't so sure. And as King presses Archer to contact Atkins, Turner tells Knapp of the connection between Leo's hospital stay and Kellog's prison pen pal, Emerson Jaynes.
Upon arriving in Mexico, Conrad is taken to meet the mercenary with whom Knapp has contracted for the firepower they need to find Leo. As King crosses the border, he gets word from Archer that not only has the trumped up case against him gained traction back home, but that the FBI has sent an agent to follow him. Meanwhile, after learning that Conrad's mistress, Claire Philips, has turned up dead, Archer gets Atkins to admit that he has been ordered to make a phony case against King.
Frustrated by blind alleys and dead suspects, Knapp is certain that gangster James Sullivan is connected to the kidnapping, while King's solution lies in a missing persons report for a pilot who he suspects was hired to take Leo Cain far from New York. King's hunch begins to bear fruit when the missing pilot's wife admits that her husband is a gambler who performed off-the-books assignments for quick cash. And when Turner uncovers offshore financial transactions that connect Sullivan and Conrad, Knapp enlists Senator Bill Ross to lift the veil of secrecy shielding the deals as he finds that Conrad has been secretly assembling money to ransom his son.
Leo is still missing, the Accountant is on the run, and the FBI isn't any closer solving the case. While sifting through clues, Knapp and Turner are alerted to the fact that someone has picked up the book that's been used to ferry messages about the plot in and out of prison. Though he follows the signal sent by the book's hidden tracking device, Knapp is not only unable to catch kidnapping co-conspirator Diana Guttman, but he and Turner end up as her hostages. But when Turner sees an opening, she turns the tables on Guttman, who then offers to make a deal for her release after revealing that King has been lured to a nearby park where he and his daughter, Ella, are now trapped by a sniper.
