Part II: Alrick Riley
|Matthew Federman & Stephen Scaia||May 21, 2019||101–102||5.62|
Part I: When his mentor, Dr. Ana Castillo, is abducted by terrorists after discovering the tomb of Mark Antony and Cleopatra, art expert Danny McNamara recruits an old flame, professional thief Lexi Vaziri, to rescue her, despite Lexi blaming him for her father Reza's death two years prior at the hands of the same terrorists. With assistance provided by Danny's billionaire contact, Jay Reece, they track the stolen antiques to a Mafia auction in Rome, unaware that the Carabinieri are planning a raid. At the auction, Danny uses the resulting chaos as an opportunity to kidnap the terrorists' middleman, Aiden Shaw, who turns out to be an American named Dwayne Coleman. Shaw demands $2 million to contact his employers, but when Danny steps away to make a call, Lexi lets him escape so the pair can discreetly follow him. Danny admits that what happened to Reza still haunts him, and has carried his prayer beads with him every day since he died, giving Lexi some closure. She forgives him, and they prepare to pursue Shaw across the border.Part II: In 1942, a unit of German soldiers enter the tomb of Cleopatra and steal her sarcophagus; a handful of men escape while the others are sealed within the tomb by a mysterious cult. In the present day, Shaw tries to sell back his remaining antiques to Karim Farouk, a terrorist who was supposedly killed two years earlier, but when Danny and Lexi show up, Farouk shoots him and escapes despite Lexi's attempts to pursue him while Danny rescues Castillo and the still-alive Shaw. Danny and Lexi are arrested by Interpol agent Gwen Karlsson, but manage to parachute off the transport plane into the Vatican, where Danny's friend Chuck Donnelly, a church official, informs them that Shaw has fled to Istanbul. There, an assassin sent by Farouk tries to poison him, but Danny and Lexi are able to steal the antidote and save his life again. With Castillo's help, Danny determines two things: Farouk wants to weaponize the curse of Cleopatra and Antony and the cult that killed the Nazis is the key to finding the bodies.

|Gwen brings Danny and Lexi into an operation to capture Farouk alongside Asim Masood, an intelligence officer who previously worked with Danny. Danny tries to pose as Shaw to obtain a new lead on Farouk in Paris, but his cover is blown and only Gwen's intervention saves his life. Lexi warns Danny of her suspicions that Asim is a mole for Farouk. Later, she breaks into Chuck's apartment for help analyzing a ledger, and he helps her deduce the language it's written in as Sumerian. Combined with information provided by a detainee who Danny is able to convince to trust him, the team finds one of Farouk's hideouts in Rome. Asim confesses to Danny that he is not authorized to hunt Farouk, but is doing so anyway because someone in the Egyptian government has blocked every one of his attempts to investigate him. He then dies while shielding Lexi from a grenade blast while raiding the hideout, leaving her feeling guilty for suspecting him. Danny realizes that Farouk's intentions may involve trying to ignite war between the West and the Muslim world, unaware that Fabi, Gwen's colleague and a spy for the cult, is listening.|

Gwen and Fabi track down Najjar's contact Simon Hardwick, a British smuggler Danny once rescued from Farouk, and he advises them to investigate the cult, which he names as the Brotherhood of Serapis. Danny confronts Lexi over her desire to kill Farouk, which clashes with his plan to bring him to justice. Chuck uses his ties to the Jesuits to decipher a code left by the Circle, revealing the location of an abandoned German tank depot; a false wall reveals a secret elevator to an underground vault where Danny finds part of Cleopatra's sarcophagus. Farouk and his second-in-command Omar ambush them and seal off their exit route, so Lexi tries to escape through the roof only to be tasered and captured by two men while Danny winds up trapped in the vault when the ladder breaks.|

She's to accompany Danny and Reece at a reception in Geneva, and find Sharif Ghazal, an Egyptian official and Farouk mole positioned to acquire relics from Cleopatra's tomb that Danny previously recovered. While in transit, the convoy is ambushed by Farouk's men, but when Danny examines the scene, he realizes that the relics are fake and that Farouk already has the originals. Reece pressures him and Lexi to stay silent. Lexi makes a copy of Ghazal's fingerprint and lies to Danny, telling him that her "sources" tipped her to his treachery. Danny agrees to distract him while she searches his office, which turns up a letter implying that Farouk knew her father and that he provided financial support long before Danny approached him; Serapis operatives then intercept them and steal Lexi's phone with all her intel, while also stealing train logs from the depot. Ignoring Reece's pleas, a tired Castillo quits the team. Fabi provides Lexi with a burner phone and tells her to stay in touch if she wants to find Farouk.|

The pair gets their covers blown, but manage to trick Wong into handing over a map of land she purchased for Farouk in Spain. There, they come across a local legend, the "Ghost Train", which disappeared in 1944; Danny suspects that this is the missing Nazi train that carried Cleopatra's sarcophagus out of Germany. Realizing that Farouk is looking in the wrong place, they find the train, but the sarcophagus is gone and Mafia don Carlo Valardi (who had been trying to extort Farouk for protection money) captures them. Omar shows up and forces them to excavate the train; Lexi uses a Molotov cocktail as a distraction and they escape while Omar kills Carlo's son Luca in a firefight. A forger Lexi asked to restore the letter informs her it's a fake, and Fabi tells her to work with him if she wants to know the full truth. That same evening, Simon provides her with a document implying that her father was a member of the Brotherhood.|

Le Mer reveals that Carlo is offering him a reward for their heads, so Danny convinces him to help by claiming to know where Cleopatra is. The police catch up to them just as they find the sarcophagus, which turns out to only be the outer layer; Danny gets Gwen to leak this information to Farouk for a trap. That night, he and Lexi confess their feelings for each other over wine and kiss. Danny later finds the burner phone, and when Lexi refuses to tell him who gave it to her, he tells her to stay behind. Nevertheless, she follows him as he and Gwen capture Omar.

There, he and Lexi find a photo of Danny's late mother with a name written on the back, before narrowly escaping an ambush by mercenaries seemingly sent by Farouk. Patrick's brother Chappie reveals that a dirty cop, Tim Keeler, organized the heist, but as Keeler is living in Cuba outside FBI jurisdiction, Harper insists they catch him personally.

Danny persuades a sympathetic local to reveal the location of an old weather station linked to the 1945 dam collapse that wiped out the town. The station caretaker, Georges Larose, turns out to be a descendant of the Nazis who triggered the accident and he tortures Danny while Fabi rescues Lexi. Larose takes Lexi hostage; she stabs him and Fabi shoots him dead, though not before sustaining a fatal wound to the heart. Dying, he tells Lexi that her mother Jamilla, not her father, was part of the Brotherhood and was murdered by Larose while on a mission with him years earlier.

Chuck advises Gwen to go around the uncooperative carabinieri by breaking into Fabi's sealed apartment, which nets her a cache of secret documents.

Along with his remains, they find Cleopatra before Enrique double-crosses them; he is killed while hauling the sarcophagus away by unknown assailants who make off with the prize. A humbled Shaw offers to help Danny and Lexi unconditionally.

|Danny and Lexi are divided on whether Reece is truly responsible for Farouk’s actions or if he is being manipulated by the Brotherhood; unable to reconcile their differences, they split up with Gwen and Lexi going after Ghazal and Shaw assisting Danny. The two teams converge on the same house, where they catch Reece’s head of security, Yates, trying to escape after killing Ghazal; he is run over and killed before they can question him. A trace of his phone leads to Reece's old apartment, where Danny finds the tenth painting from the museum heist and realizes that Reece, not Keeler, organized the job that put his father away. Simon contacts them with the location of the sarcophagi in a Paris bank; Danny, Lexi, and Shaw stage a robbery and verify his information before Gwen extracts them.

Gwen looks into Ghazal's files, determining that Reece not only helped Farouk evade Danny in the past, but also had Reza killed when he discovered his secret. The team devises a plan to expose Reece by needling him into recording a confession, but when Gwen reports that the bioweapon wasn't destroyed, Danny puts the pieces together: Simon is the real Farouk, is Reece's true biological son, and has usurped control of the terrorists to exact revenge on his father. Danny, Lexi, and Chuck are captured by Roarke; Shaw rescues them. Lexi subdues Roarke in a fight while Danny and the police take out Taj and his men. Danny contemplates letting Reece die from the toxin, but Lexi injects him with the antidote so he can be tried for his crimes.
