Shawn and Gus find themselves in the midst of a Bourne Identity-like hunt and chase after a U.S Government Spy named Nadia seeks their help in finding an agent who's been off the grid for quite some time. The agent she's looking for is Strabinsky—the only person in the world who has successfully erased his identity. Nadia needs to be erased too, as the government is chasing after her, trying to capture her for something she claims she didn't do. Shawn is quick to trust her because she mentions Ewan O'Hara's name, and because she's a sexy government spy.
Nadia then shows Shawn and Gus a clue that Strabinsky left in her rucksack—a small card with Braille writing on it. Gus gathers that the raised dots may be referring to constellation patterns in the sky. They at first think Strabinsky's location is under the Phoenix constellation, but in the end, they conclude that he is located in the Fenix Valley in the Los Padres National Forest. Shawn and Gus contact Declan and ask him to fly them in his chopper to find Strabinsky. Declan agrees, and at that time we learn Declan and Juliet have been dating semi-seriously. Shawn tries to hide his jealousy.
They arrive and meet Strabinsky, an eccentric fellow who has been living by himself in a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Strabinsky is none too pleased to see them, but tells Nadia that he will erase her. After he erases her, Nadia tells Strabinsky to open a file pertaining to a recent mission in Bolivia. Strabinsky tells her he can't— She gets agitated, pulls her gun, and orders him to open the file. But Strabinsky tells her that she would need access to a Level 3 security computer within a government agency to open the file. Nadia then makes a run for it, leaving Shawn, Gus, and Strabinsky frightened that they just helped a bad guy—especially after they learn that 2 diplomats were killed during the mission and that government money certificates were stolen.
