At the farm, .Owen's latest challenge startles: having learned all legal 'hard interrogation' techniques, the class must torture him until he reveals his thus wrecked field agent code name, what and how long it may take. Harry's deal bluff fails, but he finally gets devout Sebastian, who called the Brit jealous he can't seduce him, to jump his bones in bed, only to throw him back quickly. Harry saves Alex's bacon when Lydia nearly catches her snooping in the Hall home, but she can't capitalize and is discarded, unlike Ryan deemed unworthy of a handler, as Shelby has a better shot at seducing traumatized war reporter Léon. Tired of bickering what suffering is too immoral, the Rhodesian-born recruit breaks Owen simply by tormenting Lydia in front of him. In Manhattan, Claire Haas succeeds to the White House. Alex is captured and tortured just after finding their contact's phone number, assigned to Miranda's denying DC lover Paul.
