Rich Dotcom (Ennis Esmer) has solved the first clue, which takes the couple back to their honeymoon in Italy.

Over in Italy, Kurt and Jane get a call from Roman (Luke Mitchell). Roman tells them he has set up a meeting for them with the Duke of Death, who set up the bounty on Jane’s head. Meanwhile, Tasha, Edgar, and Patterson are inside a prison cell, thanks to Roman selling them to slavery. After a lengthy chase through the streets, Kurt fights his brother-in-law on top of a speeding boat before eventually losing him.

According to Roman’s plan, he has placed the poison to kill his sister and the antidote to revive her. This is all a ruse to convince the Duke that Jane is dead and call off the hit. The clock is ticking as Kurt fights the Duke’s henchmen and injects the antidote into Jane. Together, husband and wife take down the bad guys.

In Venezuela, Tasha, Edgar, and Patterson reluctantly patch things up before breaking into a safe, which contained a top-secret CIA server. After the three take down the guards, they are rescued by Kurt and Jane. Together, they ride off into the moving tank, escaping from the prison site.
