Where the Whistle Blows…
The team discovers that Fletcher is back in the country having snuck in via Canada. OA continues to have anger toward him, while Bell explains that the public has a right to know if Fletcher was correct. They don’t come to an agreement on this yet.
Mosier asks what is his endgame? OA declares revenge. For the record, OA can say so much with his expression. His eyes and overall facial structure makes him one scary looking guy when he wants to be. I’m looking forward to the day in the show where someone really, really makes him angry.
Fletcher would not have been able to get into the country alone, so the team investigates people who he is friendly with. They discover one of his old colleagues, Richard Cook, a former Navy SEAL and current diver for Arrowpoint always believed him and they pay him a visit. He declares he was framed and states he is not a killer, nor a criminal. He’s an American hero. OA does not seem amused. Cook does not aid in finding Fletcher, but they decide to put a tail on him in case they meet up.
All is fair in love and nuclear war.
The team is able to get Fletcher’s case file from Valerie, Cameron’s best friend. I’m starting to realize there is something suspicious about her. Thinking back, why would she go into her apartment to clean up? Was there something she was trying to hide? I don’t like this chick anymore. She is shady. She explains to the two that there were many anonymous complaints against Fletcher and how much everyone disliked him. Cameron as well, so Valerie says. Was Garret one of the anonymous complaints? Valerie continues to share details and seems taken back by the idea that Cameron was with Fletcher. If Cameron didn’t trust Valerie enough to tell her the truth, what does that mean? I’m hearing alarm bells. This chick is up to NO GOOD.
Bell and Zidan leave the best friend and we finally get some detail into OA’s hesitance to believe that Fletcher isn’t a traitor. He explains that six months undercover in Special Forces made him that way. If someone leaked even one detail, you might not make it home to your family. It just isn’t how things operate. This could prove interesting later, I’m curious if his opinion softens at all. Kristen gives them more pictures of Fletcher and Cameron, clearly in love. OA thinks that it’s a sham to get Cameron to believe Fletcher, Bell says you can’t fake the look in their eyes. I guess we’ll see who is right. The hopeless romantic in me hopes its Bell.
Who Poisoned our Lead?
Kristen also tells them that Cameron received a text from Garret’s IP address the night she was murdered asking her to come to the plant, he’ll do what she wanted. This leads them back to Garret who again is vague, denies any details and is not cooperative. They arrest him, and he says that he argued with Cameron and sabotaged the plant but did not kill her. He was working for someone. He will not tell them who unless he is granted immunity. They go to bring him in, but they sound the FBI alarm for a dirty bomb alert. It’s high levels of radiation. Garret is radioactive.
Bell and Zidan must go decontaminate and we get another cute team bonding scene where OA worries he has too much exposure to isotopes and Bell seems calm. The doctor clears them both but tell them that Garret has radiation sickness—he ingested the radiation… someone poisoned him and he’s going to die. They can’t talk to him, it’s too late.
Our leads are dropping like flies, so who poisoned him…. Who had the access to? The only person who seems to have that ability is the diver, Richard Cook, per another inspector Bryce Miller. It fits as his levels of radiation exposure are too high for his amount of dive time at the plant. It means he’s handled radioactive materials. We might have a suspect. But is all what it seems? I feel as if there is a bigger picture here. I don’t think Cook is our bad guy. So what is it? I smell a set up.
They tail Cook to a marina where he is loading supplies onto a boat. They watch him leave and within minutes, Fletcher appears on another boat. Zidan stalks him to the edge of the marina where Maggie blocks him in with their SUV. We get our first real close up of Fletcher this episode. He knows he’s caught. And the Brave mega fan inside of me is screaming. Hello, Hadi Tabbal!
At the bullpen, Mosier tells them that they need a confession, all they have on Fletcher is circumstantial. Maggie still doesn’t believe that Fletcher is a traitor, Mosier turns to OA and asks if he agrees with his partner. He has her back, but his eyes say otherwise. Mosier is a profiler, so she must realize this too, but she lets Maggie take the lead. Kristen comes up in the meantime and says there is no radiation residue, it isn’t possible that he poisoned Garret.
This leads Maggie to use Fletcher’s love of Cameron to get more answers. It takes a few minutes, but she is able to get him to open up about his side of the story. He declares that Cameron was the love of his life and they wanted to start a family. They were struggling to get pregnant and Cameron’s doctor in the US told her she needed invitro treatment to conceive. This means that Fletcher needed to be there too, hence why he was back in the country. He’d do anything for her.
They argued the night she went to the plant; he fell asleep on the couch and when he woke up, Cameron was already on the news being discovered as murdered. He was devastated, and, in these moments, he reveals a crucial detail. Valerie, Cameron’s best friend DID know he was here. Fletcher says Arrowpoint is corrupt and everyone is involved. This is about to get good, but also really bad.
