James orders Michael and Sonya to assassinate an intelligence broker, ROGER STEELE (Sebastian Roché), for getting too close to uncovering their secret organization. The reason James has chosen Michael for the job is because Michael and Roger are old friends. Michael tries to convince Strong to abduct Steele before the assassination can occur, but Strong refuses, pointing out that any intervention by the CIA would blow Michael’s cover. In order to stop Sonya from killing Steele in a way that would get dozens of other innocent people killed, Michael’s forced use his friendship with Steele to lure him into a deadly trap.

The diplomat is scheduled to speak at an economic conference in Miami, so Michael and Sam sign on as his personal security detail while Jesse, Fi, and one of James’ operatives, BEN SNYDER (David Meunier), monitor the situation from outside. Toward the end of the conference, it looks like the Libyan hit squad isn’t going to make their move. But when the diplomat falls ill, Michael realizes the Libyans don’t need to attack him at the economic conference… because they’ve already poisoned him.

To escape the many enemies he’s gained throughout his career, Cabral has signed an exile deal with MI6 to hand over his intelligence network in exchange for a cozy retirement in England. James, however, doesn’t want Cabral to be rewarded for his life of treachery, which is why he’s ordered Michael to swoop in before the British can get Cabral off the island.
Michael’s been pushing to meet the leader of Sonya’s organization, but he had no idea what he was getting into. Shortly after Sonya agrees to makes the introduction, she knocks Michael unconscious.
