Jane and Kurt are on a romantic walk when they are retrieved by the FBI. They both filled in about Zapata’s plan and try to infiltrate Madeline’s office. Soon the team finally discovers Madeline’s plan is to hack into the computer system inside Air Force One. 

Elsewhere, FBI director Matthew Weitz (Aaron Abrams) discovers he has been fired for insubordination. He also discovers that the plane he’s on, Air Force One, is going to crash.  After getting into the cockpit, Matthew discovers the pilots have no control over their equipment. 

While Boston serves as distraction, holding a fake bomb, Zapata beats the crap out of Del Toro and shoots down his goons. Boston leaves the building and makes a call to Rich, telling him they have control of the servers. With Air Force one saved, Zapata is just about to leave when the building explodes.  

After going through the wreckage, Boston suddenly finds Zapata alive. Though Zapata left him, Boston gets a round of applause at FBI headquarters. Though Reade offered him a job, Boston turns him down.  

With Madeline on the run, Zapata heads out to Zurich to get the incriminating evidence about Helios. She wants to prove to Reade that she really is on the side of good. Unfortunately, Zapata ends up attacked in the hospital.
