She finds herself in the middle of an international hostage situation in Syria, where two US citizens are facing execution. Internal politics are tested as she strives to find a resolution.

At home, Elizabeth questions whether she did the right thing by taking on the job with her children finding it difficult to adjust to their new schools.
In a turn of events, Elizabeth is shocked to learn the fate of a former colleaguebwho was investigating the death of the former Secretary of State.
