As Huck breaks the encryption on more Albatross files from Wendy’s Flash drive, it becomes clear that this intelligence could help save the American hostages. Olivia turns the information over to Jake, but tells him he can’t reveal where he got the intel. He agrees, and takes the information directly to the President, which would be weird except that Fitz is also having his old friend, Jake, spy on Olivia. The other thing Jake’s not telling Fitz is that he and Olivia have started dating.
With the new information, Fitz orders another rescue operation for a new location, but keeps it completely secret. The operation is a complete success—the terrorists are killed, the hostages are found alive, and no soldiers are injured. Meanwhile, Jake breaks into the apartment of a photographer who happened to snap a picture of him with Olivia while she was dealing with a client. He beats the man senseless and steals his camera’s memory card before sneaking away.
