When Simon Fischer invites Annie to join him for a week in Cuba-a trip Annie can only assume has to do with FSB business-it's an intel-gathering opportunity too good to pass up. So although the CIA can't officially sanction the mission, Annie requests vacation days from Joan and, with help from her ex-boss Lena, scores a forged passport and makes the risky journey.
Outside Havana, she tails Simon to a massive signals intelligence facility the CIA didn't even know was operational. It's a major piece of intel, and Lena is thrilled-and ready to bring Annie home. The only probl... Annie's passport is tucked securely in Simon's safe, and without it she's going nowhere. So for now, she's stuck in Havana with Simon and his menacing friend Hector, the local FSB honcho, who clearly doesn't trust Annie. How Simon feels about her isn't yet clear, but when the two men escort Annie to a secluded cigar factory outside town, Annie may finally find out.
Meanwhile, Arthur and Joan's campaign for the Chinese Ambassadorship hits a roadblock. And, not content to let the investigation into Jai's death drop despite Arthur's orders, Auggie pays Henry Wilcox a visit. Despite Henry's initial resistance, the meeting ultimately leads to a breakthrough in the investigation-and reveals a surprising connection to Annie.
