Forced to choose between Fiona and Sonya, Michael shoots his new partner. Seeing that while approaching, James orders his helicopter away from his surrender to the CIA and swears bitter revenge on the ultimate traitor he wanted as joint successor. Supervisor Andrew Strong fears for his career and calls off all deals with Mike's team, promising a worse fate the the burn list. The only way out is to deliver James and his organization another way, so Sam comes up with forcing communication specialist Max Lyster to steal Kendrick's HQ backup hard-drives. Jesse is dispatched to protect Madeline and Charlie from James's revenge by goons, which requires an ultimate sacrifice. Michael gets a fake funeral to start a secret new family life overseas.
