Annie accepts Simon's invitation to accompany him to Cuba, using Lena's help to hide the trip from the rest of the CIA. Simon introduces Annie to Hector (Nestor Serrano), his handler and a KGB hit man. She feels uncomfortable around Hector and asks Simon to cut their vacation short. Before taking her to the airport, he kills Hector. Lena suggests Simon loves Annie, which means he can be manipulated. Meanwhile, Arthur has second thoughts about leaving the CIA for the ambassador's job, and, against Arthur's orders, Auggie questions an imprisoned Henry Wilcox (Gregory Itzin) about Jai's death. Henry provides the address to Jai's safehouse.
