Charlie has flashbacks of her arrival at Midnight City where she first met Nick and witnessed him brutally interrogate Fatah. When members of the militant Islamist movement Boko Haram kidnap 21 Nigerian girls, President Payton tasks Charlie with the logistically impossible -- to find and save the girls without Nigeria knowing the U.S. was ever involved. Meanwhile, President Payton hosts the Chinese president at Camp David and realizes that she can use their trade talks to get something she really wants.

During the first flashback 5 years ago, Nick uses an iPhone to take a picture, however, the wrong model iPhone is used. The first generation iPhone did come out 5 years ago in 2009 but was not back. This appears to be an iPhone 5. When he turns the phone to show the picture, you can see that the phone is running iOS 7 or 8 which was just released last year or this year, respectively. See more
