Boss tells her to figure out of we can trust him one way or another.

Cat visits her boss in the hospital. Agent says you're not responsible for your husband's actions. I need you to push. Diane is a hitman. Not the best way to prove he's innocent. No, it's not.

Cat calls JT. JT and Heather. He wants her to look at social media. Vincent was almost caught on Long Island. We're playing catch up. Figure out where they're going before DHS does. Heather got it.

Cat in the car. JT and Heather send her to the home. JT says the camera just went out.

Guard down. She pulls the gun on Vincent. Kill him or I kill you. Uh oh!

Vincent says this is crazy. Let's get out of here. She says we can't leave witnesses. Something doesn't add up about you. Lots of questions and only one way to answer them. Vincent gets the guard on his feet and puts him in a choke hold. Until he stops struggling. Then drops him. Now can we go? She checks for a pulse. I was wrong about you. A noise. Vincent tells her to check it out. I'll get rid of the guy. He works to save the guard's life.

Cat and Diane fight.

Vincent doing CPR.

Diane has a knife. Cat throws her. Diane lands on the knife!

Guard breathing and conscious again. He runs away. Vincent asks if she's okay? Cat asks what are you doing? He says I had to kill him, it's a long story. I have to go. She says no. We have to communicate better. I can't keep chasing you without knowing what's going on! Vincent has to leave now or he'll get caught. She agrees to cover for him here. Vincent kisses her and runs.

DHS. Cat returns. Boss lady is in her office. She seems pleased with Cat's work. Vincent saved the guard. Guard says that, but after Vincent tried to kill him. Agent says it's curious. I only care about bringing him in, understand? Cat does. The assassin got in my way. Boss will put Cat on point. Don't let me down or I'll take you down along with your husband.

Greydahl. Vincent returns. Boss says shut the door. What the hell happened? Vincent tells him. We got in, got in the safe, and a guard showed up. He asks what happened to Vaughn? Vincent is glib. Boss wants to know what happened. He's mad. Vincent gives him the prize. I'll be back for my take tomorrow. If you don't have something better for me next time, consider this my final mission.

JT enters a restaurant. In a tie. Clean clothes. Looking for Tess. She's surprised. Asks why he's dressed up? You knew I'd be here. He says okay, maybe. There hasn't been time. She asks for what? He says I know we're not together anymore, but I don't want you to start dating, okay? I'm finding myself, I know, but I still think we have a chance-- I'm such an idiot. He runs off.

Vincent and Cat in bed. She wants to be home. He does, too. But this is better than nothing. True. They kiss. She wants to talk. Now. Up. What do we do about this? She thinks it's a big mistake. He says we don't have another choice. She says it's the riskiest thing we've ever done. I can't keep playing catch up. He reminds her we have to be together even when we can't be. She wants to check in in person. And communicate. And teach me to use the remote. I can't work the TV. He says it's a deal breaker, I'm sorry. LOL. And kisses. And under the covers. She says definitely more of that. Giggles.
