Mal sets out to find the people that took Natara… But he has to rely on someone from her past.
Natara is shown to be with man, a stone's throw away from a sprawling mansion. She tries to fight him back, but he ends up hitting her pressure point which causes her to pass out.
Next, Mal is shown to be in the hospital room with Neha, who has just been rescued, and asks her many questions in order to get a brief description of the sprawling mansion. He returns to the precinct and meets Shawn Mallory, a fellow FBI agent for the first time. They try their best to track down the suspect who served in Russia during the Cold War and find someone who can help them known as Nikolai Guryevitch as he served in the Russian Army during that time too. Meanwhile, Natara awakes to find herself in a sprawling trophy room filled with victims' teeth, skull and many other grisly things. Natara finds out the the man's 'master' is someone who finds disturbed people and cultivate their personalities to make them killers.
Mal and Shawn drive to meet Nikolai at his apartment and figure out that the man torturing Natara was formally a colonel, known as Mikhail Volk. Nikolai tells his story of how he was tortured by Mikhail Volk resulting in all his fingers on his left hand getting cut off. As they leave Nikolai's apartment, Mal and Shawn decide to find out more about the political connection Volk has. At that moment, Mal receives a call from Genevieve Collins, Senator Collin's wife, however before he can say much, the phone line goes dead. As Mal arrives at the senator's house, he realises that Senator Collin is dead and that he has been set up. However at that moment, officers surround the house trying to apprehend Mal, but he manages to escape with the help of Ken. The episode ends with Mal putting the pieces together and finding out who the killer is.
