Afghan men hired by one of Erickson's men transport Sanchez in the trunk of a vehicle without AC's knowledge. AC angrily calls Erickson and demands to know why he's not in the loop on moving Sanchez. He challenges Erickson for not including him after his years of loyalty. Boorman meets with Patty to explain his history with Erickson. He tells her "Dust Devil" was a way for the U.S. to distance itself from handling terror suspects after Abu Ghraib. In exchange for Erickson's services, Boorman agreed to keep government contracts coming. Boorman confirms for Patty that the C.I.A. shut down Dust Devil well before the last mission, and claims the C.I.A. can no longer control Erickson. They are happy to let Patty "take him off their hands." Boorman explains he's protecting the boy who has no connection to "Dust Devil," and informs her boy is an asset's child. Patty and Ellen don't believe Boorman, and decide they need to speak with the boy. Patty asks Huntley to kidnap the boy; it's the only way they can get access to him. Boorman realizes the boy doesn't know what happened to his mother. He meets with his boss and explains C.I.A. needs to cut Erickson loose.

Huntley gives orders to his contacts to kidnap the boy. Boorman's bomb tech contact gives him a birth certificate, social security number and adoption papers for the boy. Dean tells Ellen Sanchez has been taken to the dangerous Wagyal region, and he doesn't know what else he can do. Ellen tells Erickson Boorman has hung him out to dry. She'll drop the case if he sends Sanchez back home. Erickson is open to the idea but says he needs assurances Patty won't pursue the case after Ellen drops it. The boy is kidnapped from the safe house by a team of masked men. Huntley's team informs him someone got to the boy first.
