As Rebecca recovers from a near-fatal poisoning at the hands of Shylock, Mitchell uses the time spent by her bedside to dig deeper into the killer’s real identity. As soon as he knows she’s going to pull though, Mitchell heads back to his apartment. Once there, working as Phoenix, it takes him no time to pull together everything he has learned or seen about Shylock.

With Shylock revealed to the NCCU as former disgraced trader, Josh Gallagher, the team is able to figure out the identities of the final, missing members of The Water Boys. With their investigation slowly coming together, they realise the full enormity of the attack that could be planned. Each of The Water Boys was a top player at leading high-frequency trading firms in London and New York. Each of them had top-level clearance, and all of them had given the hackers access.

With the leads stacking up, and at least one of The Water Boys still alive and talking, Mitchell and Rebecca figure out who Shylock’s next victim could be. Unfortunately, by the time Agents Knox’s tactical team has scrambled, they are too late to save him, and they miss catching Shylock by a matter of seconds.

At least they have a better idea of what he’s planning, and how it ties in with MalComX and The Salesman’s bigger plan.

Shylock was freaking out. He had just killed a policeman. It wasnt right. He had got great pleasure out of killing each of The Water Boys, but this had been different. They had deserved to die, and killing them had been just revenge for the way they had treated him in the past. Tit for tat. But this guy had just been in the wrong place at the wrong time. He hadnt done anything to deserve his death apart from turn up to do his job. Shylock felt sick. Perhaps he wasnt cut out for this after all.
