ABC presents the action-packed spy comedy, Whiskey Cavalier, with Episode 1: Pilot, starring Lauren Cohan and Scott Foley. Find out what happens when a super FBI agent is assigned to work with hard-hearted CIA agent.

After almost unleashing a deadly virus into the air, Will (Foley) starts to realize he’s cracking after his breakup with his fiancee. Susan (Ana Ortiz) and Ray (Josh Hopkins) attempt to console Will but nothing seems to be working. Will gets a second chance from his FBI boss, Alex (Dylan Walsh) to find a hacker/terrorist named Edgar.

At the bar, during his stakeout, Will attempts to flirt with CIA agent Frankie (Cohan). He’s terrible at it but Frankie’s flirtation distracts him from realizing Edgar (Tyler James Williams) has left the building. After an explosion, Will chases after them before they can make their getaway.

With Edgar in the trunk, Will takes the steering wheel and drives the car, holding Frankie at gunpoint. Pretending to be a newlywed couple, Will and Frankie make it past a security checkpoint. Unfortunately, Frankie gets the drop on Will, dumping him in the trunk with Edgar.

Edgar finally gets the keys to the handcuffs from Will’s pocket. Frankie meets up with the Bartender, who happens to be her real friend, Jai (Vir Das). After getting a bag of supplies, Frankie is then captured by Will and dumped into the trunk.

In the railroad train, Edgar reveals he is a whistleblower and someone in the agency is a traitor. After catching up with the duo, Frankie has a brief chat with Susan before joining them on the run. Suddenly, Frankie is shot by the taxi driver before making their getaway. 

Will races towards Ray’s house and tends to a wounded Frankie. As she lies on top of the dinner table, Will operates and takes the bullet out of her. At that moment, Will’s fiancee shows up. 

After discovering his best friend has been sleeping with his fiancee, Will punches out Ray. Alex shows up all of a sudden and breaks up the fight. Alex then proceeds to torture Edgar and gets the chip everybody has been looking for. 

Will puts the clues together and realizes Alex is Edgar’s traitor. After hearing Alex confess to his crimes, Frankie detonates and tosses her exploding tampon. In the rubble, Will manages to get to the knife first and strikes back at Alex.
