Elizabeth and Henry go to the FBI to talk about the person who's stalking their children. For the moment, the FBI tells them, they need to check their children's phones and devices. Jason is obstinate about giving his phone but when he does, they find it hard to break his code. Elizabeth helped arrange for an Algerian dictator to step down and be taken to a county where he can live the remainder of his life. But when the ambassador who brokered the deal dies, Elizabeth goes. But when she arrives the President refuses to honor the deal and executes the man who was suppose to succeed him. With their neighbors planning to attack, Elizabeth tries to find a way to get him out. Henry's worried about religious relics being destroyed by a terrorist group so Elizabeth tells Jay to talk to him and he also talks to Campos, who says the same thing. Written by
