Having booked an appearance on a late-night talk show whose host isn’t exactly well-disposed toward Graystone Industries, Daniel Graystone is sickened by the public relations spin his advisers are telling him to put on Zoe’s death (and life). Agent Durham is searching everywhere that Zoe lived that short life in his hunt for the Soldiers of the One, including a surprise raid at her school (but not a total surprise for the other members of Zoe’s STO cell). Still stuck somewhere between grief and rage, Joseph Adama has ordered his brother Sam to make things even with Graystone: since Adama lost his daughter and his wife, Graystone should also lose his wife before the day is out, just to even the score. Sam doubts his brother’s certainty, but prepares for the hit anyway. As Daniel Graystone takes the stage in a TV studio to try to spin away the damage caused by his wife’s admission that Zoe may have been the suicide bomber, he’s unaware that his wife is waiting in the wings to make another surprise appearance – and he’s not sure if he can spin his family name or his company’s reputation out of harm’s way this time.
