Picking up where the previous episode left off, Control, Hersh, and their operatives hold Finch, Shaw, and Claypool captive, demanding to know the location of the Samaritan drives and Finch's Machine. Root bursts in and uses her access to the Machine to disable the agents and help our heroes escape, but she is wounded and captured by Control in the process. Claypool then leads Finch to the bank vault where he hid the Samaritan drives, only to be cornered in the bank by simultaneously by Vigilance and Hersh's ISA operatives. While cornered in the vault with a wounded bank manager, Finch convinces Claypool to destroy the drives, and then they all manage to escape when Reese arrives to clear an exit. However, Greer later meets with the bank manager, who is revealed to be an undercover Decima operative, and receives the real hard drives, which she secretly switched out in the chaos at the bank.
