Fiona sees through the deception and stays with her story that she acted alone at the British consulate. Michael, Sam and Pearce corner Anson at a chemical plant. As Michael is about to bring him in, Anson reveals a dead-man switch that will trigger a bomb in the plant, and Michael allows him to escape. Michael warns the others, who make for the exits. Pearce and a colleague make it out in time, but Sam stays behind to free a hostage that Anson had chained to a pole. After the plant explodes, several seconds pass before it is revealed that Sam and the hostage got out alive. Meanwhile, Jesse and Madeline deal with a paranoid Army Ranger patient of Anson's, whom the latter sent to Madeline's home in order to buy time. Pearce alerts every major agency about Anson, putting him on every watchlist.|

But Michael notices that Montero (Anthony Ruivivar), the second-in-command of the cartel, is represented by a lawyer that would recognize Michael from a previous encounter, forcing Jesse to do the job alone with only outside help from Michael, Sam and Card. In the end, Jesse gets the second-in-command to become a cooperating witness and ring in a major bust. This huge a victory allows Michael to see Fiona. While the others take down the cartel, a fellow incarceree gang leader goes after Fiona because she disrespected her. Fiona fights and overpowers the cellblock queen known as "D.B." during a fire in a cell, earning respect in prison. Afterwards, Fiona is washing dishes with a new friend.

Meanwhile, Pearce gets Michael's team to help her take down the man who killed her fiancé years ago. The man, CIA asset Ahmed Damour (Faran Tahir), has a hard drive full of valuable information that protects him. Michael, Jesse and Pearce accompany Ahmed on his vacation cruise, dose him with a drug that replicates the symptoms of meningitis, and quarantine him. Sam, Maddie and Nate go to Ahmed's home impersonating a medical team, to convince Ahmed's son Sharif that he is in danger of infection.

Michael and his team staked out in a motel room and Nate almost blew their cover twice. Michael, in anger, tells Nate to leave Atlantic City so he would no longer be a distraction from the team.

Michael explains to Riley what really happened—how Card had used Anson and Gray for unauthorized operations around the world, and was planning to do the same with him.

This forces the team to recover a high-tech alarm-disarming gadget that Schmidt says he can instantly sell to a client named Thorne for $1 million. The recovery doesn't go smoothly, and the device is shot up in the team's escape, forcing them to make convincing-but-cosmetic repairs and try to sell it anyway. Meanwhile, Michael needs to deceive Agent Riley as to the team's true escape plans, so he has Maddie meet with Barry Burkowski to give him information on making bogus money transfers. Barry is arrested by Riley's men and Maddie tells Michael that she will be arrested too. Michael tells Maddie to escape the country with him.|

Michael, Schmidt, Fiona and Sam seek refuge in an abandoned warehouse when Vanek's team comes gunning for Schmidt. Survival becomes a challenge, with supplies running low and the exits blocked, so Michael has to do some improvising to salvage the situation. Meanwhile, Jesse is trying to protect Maddie, but she insists on going to visit Nate's grave one more time before leaving the country. After visiting Nate's grave one last time, Michael uncovers a message in a bundle of flowers at the grave from "A Friend", which provides a phone number if Michael needs help.|
|97||17||"You Can Run"||Nick Gomez||Craig O'Neill||December 20, 2012||BN617||3.78|
|Michael has agreed to meet Agent Bly ("a friend"), who says he now has evidence of Card's transgressions, and offers a deal. Michael doesn't like the deal, and instead chooses to make a last-ditch effort to get himself and his team out of the country. This is thwarted when Riley and a CIA team track Michael, Sam and Jesse to their rendezvous point. In the melee, Jesse is captured and Sam is shot. Michael escapes with an incapacitated agent and a badly wounded Sam. They call on Fiona's EMT ex-boyfriend, who reluctantly helps patch up Sam, but tells them that Sam needs proper surgery as soon as possible. Meanwhile, Jesse is being beaten and interrogated by Riley's team, to no avail. Back at the house, Michael leaves his captive alone in a room, knowing he'll try to fashion a phone to contact Riley. When he does, Michael and Fiona are able to trace the call and get the location of the building where Jesse is being held. After nerve-gassing the building, Michael manages to get Jesse out. Despite the best efforts of Fiona's EMT friend, Sam is getting worse. Fiona reveals that she knows a recently unlicensed doctor that could perform emergency surgery on Sam. Michael, Sam and Jesse get in a car, and Fiona proceeds to drive at high speed to the doctor's house. As Fiona is driving them, a rapidly fading Sam tells Michael to make sure "this isn't for nothing." When Michael replies by saying Sam's name, Sam doesn't respond.|
|98||18||"Game Change"||Matt Nix||Matt Nix||December 20, 2012||BN618||3.78|
|The team takes Sam to the home of a recently unlicensed doctor, who is none too pleased but manages to save Sam. As the team spends the night at the doctor's house, assassins sent by Riley storm the home. After the team thwarts the raid, Michael identifies the assassins as members of a drug cartel with a vendetta against him resulting from a previous CIA mission. Michael contacts Bly to tail Riley to a meeting with the cartel kingpin at a marina. However, a cartel member (disguised as marina security) blows up Bly's car, killing him and destroying the evidence they collected on Riley. Michael desperately boards the cartel leader's yacht, incapacitates the leader, and tells Riley at gunpoint that approaching Coast Guard vessels are there because he called them. Riley agrees to confess after the Coast Guard threatens to sink their ship. Later, Fiona, Madeline, Sam and Jesse are released from their prison cells and meet with a sharply dressed Michael, who is giving out orders to other agents. Michael reveals he made a deal to get them all freed, saying, "I did what I had to do." However, Fiona turns away disgustedly, reminding him of his promise to quit when this was all over, and telling him "you did what you wanted to do". A close up on Michael's eyes show a look of conflict as the season comes to an end.|
