The dealer gives them the information and they head off after locking him and his partner in the trunk of one of their cars. Vaughn shows up at Fiona’s place with lunch while Sam and Michael head to the location that the gun dealer gave them. Michael breaks into the home of the hit man to find out more about him, and he goes into a room with a claymore attached to the door. As Michael attempts to disarm the claymore a man comes out of the closet, he is the hit man named Cole who was also hired by the Turks to take out Bailey. He thinks that Michael is a second hit man assigned the same job; Michael goes along with that as Cole pulls a gun on him.

As Michael and Cole leave the apartment he signals Sam to stand by, and let things play out. Vaughn is trying to chat Fiona up and has not made all of his intentions known, but he then offers to give Jesse his old job back if Fiona will give him the Bible. Vaughn tells Fiona this is the best thing for Michael and Jesse and leaves his car, and then he takes off feeling he convinced her.
Michael convinces Cole to steal an emergency vehicle because the police officers are not letting people freely drive around because of the Hurricane, while he is in the vehicle he radios Sam and briefs him on what is going on. Michael or “Matt Reese” in this case needs to point out the exact house where Bailey is once they get into the neighborhood, he tries to get some information from Sam to help him do that but they don’t have anything at the moment. As they are trying to escape with the stolen emergency vehicle Cole gets caught on a car, Michael makes him throw his gun out and helps him to safety.

They find some information about where Bailey’s girlfriend lives, Michael tricks Cole into letting him get on the CB radio, Sam and Jesse relay coded information to Michael who picks up on it and shows the house to Cole. Just as they get ready to head over to the house the real “Matt Reese” and his team start shooting at them, Cole figures out that Michael is not Matt Reese. By the time he realizes it Michael has already started to escape on foot once he realizes his cover is blown.
Michael runs to Bailey’s house and gets ready for Cole to show up, Cole bursts in and starts shooting. A gun fight between Michael and Cole ensues, but Michael starts to reason with him and it seems to be working. Matt Reese and his crew show up to take care of Bailey, but they tell Cole he can go free if he comes out so they can finish off Bailey.

The plan works like a charm except Michael gets beat up by Matt Reese, and Cole has to save him.
Cole takes off as the police are on their way to the scene, Michael heads back to Madeline’s house. They two FBI agents show up at Madeline’s house to thank Michael because they received credit for the bust, but they told him he is owed a favor.

Michael gets the FBI agents to lean on Vaughn, Michael then tells Vaughn is he visits Fiona again he is going to have problems.
