Sinossi originale: Following the apparent suicide of truck driver Abel Mindler, Finch and his team the number that belongs to Walter Dang, a worker at an insurance company and Abel's sister's coworker. In the absence of Finch (who has to travel to Hong Kong to present a paper at a conference), Shaw and Reese look into Walter's life. As their investigation proceeds, it is revealed that Walter, posing as a detective, is trying to find out who killed Abel. Walter gets dragged into a gang war that erupts between Elias and the unknown adversaries who want Walter dead. It is later shown that Abel, without his knowledge, was smuggling high explosive weapons to the same gang in New York. Walter is abducted by the gang that wants to know the location of the truck which Abel drove and incidentally ditched, once he realized what he was smuggling. With Reese, Fusco, and Shaw hot on the heels of Walter, they discover the place where Walter is held. In the ensuing gunfight between Reese, Fusco, and the gang, Elias chips in and helps them. In the end, Elias meets with Dominic, the boss of The Brotherhood and it is shown that Dominic was the real mastermind behind the smuggled guns as he wanted to shift the balance of power in the city from Elias. Their conversation hints at a possible war about to start between the two factions in the near future. Meanwhile, at the conference, Finch meets Elizabeth Bridges (Jessica Hecht), the owner of a small tech company, and the two bond over a shared interest in mathematics as they travel from the conference to a hotel. On the way, the two are mugged, and their bags stolen. After discovering the restaurant at which the thief works, Finch and Bridges travel to the restaurant where Finch incapacitates the mugger with an umbrella. As the conference ends, Finch and Bridges part ways, and Finch meets with and pays the mugger, revealing that he staged the event to place software on Bridges's laptop. As Bridges leaves the conference, she phones a potential investor, who is revealed to be a Samaritan operative. Following a conversation between the operative and Greer, Samaritan's acquisition of various companies around the world are revealed (as is its interest in Bridges' company).
