In the summer finale, Michael completed his mission and captured Tyler Gray, the man who murdered his brother. But Michael's victory was short lived when he learned that the only reason Tom Card sent him to Panama in the first place, was to have him killed.
Still reeling from this betrayal, Michael and the team must now find a way to smuggle themselves back into the United States with their prisoner.
The team tries to hijack a cargo plane, but Tyler Gray uses this opportunity to make his escape. While Michael tries to recapture Gray, the team comes under heavy fire and is forced to leave Michael and Gray behind. To make matters worse, the owner of the cargo plane turns out to be a sadistic drug lord who has no problem torturing them until he gets his plane back. Michael's only hope of getting out of this situation alive is to work with the man who murdered his brother.
