By pure luck, Annie survives a bumbled handover in Venice and faces moving out of her sister's home. Jai asks his frat mate Cameron to be summoned in the normally already closed investigation, which stirs his father Henry Wilcox to work all his connections. Xabier Etxarte, the sexy Basque restaurateur Annie has a mutual crush on, is the brother of recently released ETA terrorist Gorka, so she's ordered to stay around, whatever that takes.

When the show cuts next to the Etxarte, the song playing (in Spanish) says "My mother, my mother, we are sleeping together between your arms". See more »

Annie Walker: [in Joan's office] Was that all you wanted to see me about?
Joan Campbell: That's all.
Annie Walker: About what happened.
[sits down]
Annie Walker: I've been thinking a lot about what I could have done differently...
Joan Campbell: That's okay. We already got what we wanted from another source.
Annie Walker: [dismayed] Another source?
Joan Campbell: That's why we build redundancy into the system. In case things don't go according to plan.
Annie Walker: I see.
