Victor tells Patty he suspects Michael is in Boston since he had a few friends in the area right after he disappeared. Ellen sets up shop at Hewes & Associates and files the case against High Star despite Chris's absence. Erickson and his family encounter protestors on the way to church. His attorney tells him the lawsuit was filed, and gives him background on Ellen's career. They suspect Patty could be behind the case, which causes them concern. Chris is still having nightmares about the last mission. Chris decides to seek out a trusted informant, Zafar, who is also a friend.
Ellen argues the merits of the lawsuit in federal court against Erickson's attorney. She gets the attorney to admit that High Star can produce Chris Sanchez for testimony and she wins the right to a video conference deposition. Erickson wants to settle the case to make it go away. Patty reminds Ellen it would be unethical for her to meet with Erickson without his attorney. Ellen convinces Patty to go in her place in exchange for watching Catherine while Patty goes with Victor to Boston to look for Michael. Erickson gives Patty a number for the settlement. Patty showing up instead of Ellen convinces Erickson she is involved in the case.
Chris appears for the deposition via video conference. He recants what he told Ellen about the last mission being illegal. Ellen thinks he's being coerced and is testifying under duress. Chris claims otherwise, but begins giving Ellen instructions on taking his dog to the vet to check his hips-a secret message maybe. After the video conference, it's revealed Zafar is being held hostage and Chris' testimony was in fact coerced.
Michael shows up outside Patty's apartment and watches her with Catherine from the privacy of his limo before driving away.
