Three years later, Tal orchestrates another attack, and Keaton is ordered to recruit the incarcerated Shepherd onto his team, including FBI agents Daniel Zain, Kate Ryan, and Jason Bragg.

Shepherd tells Keaton the truth about her treasonous choice: in a flashback, she receives a call from Tal, who forces her to give up her agents by threatening her daughter’s life.

They learn Tal is after a laptop with files on a self-sustaining facility, which Keaton and Shepherd realize is the Sierra Maestra black site. The air traffic control recording of the flight’s takeoff reveals that the pilot is the same assassin responsible for the plane crash that killed Laine, and Shepherd’s previous investigation uncovers his name: Alexander Chigorin, Tal's senior lieutenant. Shepherd’s ex-husband Christopher confronts her for meeting with Hannah behind his back and the trauma Shepherd’s arrest caused her family. The FBI tracks Chigorin to an underground Russian social club. Recalling Mendoza’s warning, Shepherd sends a call which warns Tal’s network and Chigorin narrowly escapes Keaton, leaving the laptop.

While Keaton and Zain ready the Hostage Rescue Team, Shepherd steals a cache of weapons and convinces Visser that she is joining his escape. They flee, and Shepherd learns Visser was merely a one-time associate of Tal; with no information on Sierra Maestra, Visser mentions that Tal is planning a massive attack on a major tourist attraction in D.C.

Tal's operatives attack the house and Keaton and Shepherd escape with Bell. She reveals she was part of an operation during the Second Chechen War that recruited Tal. The CIA reneged on its promised extraction and Tal's brothers were killed in an airstrike, catalyzing Tal's vendetta against the CIA. Bell believes Tal's next attack is likely to occur the following day on the anniversary of his brothers' deaths. As Keaton's team prepares a false flag operation to entrap Backus, Molinero interrogates Zain for illegally investigating Backus, but Zain refuses to incriminate Keaton and is suspended until further notice.

In Havana, Shepherd electrocutes herself to disable her FBI transponder and is brought to meet Tal. Keaton’s team arrives at the ceremony, with all CIA senior leadership in attendance, and Tal’s operatives attack; Keaton and Bragg manage to kill them all, including Chigorin. As Tal’s forces prepare to free his captured operatives from Sierra Maestra, Keaton arrives with a CIA team but is captured. Appearing to have joined Tal, Shepherd shoots Keaton in the clavicle before killing Tal’s remaining men, wounding Tal, and radioing for help. Tal tells Shepherd he was assisted by a powerful individual in U.S. intelligence, and she shoots him dead when he goes for his weapon.
