Katarina and Liz have a heart to heart about what really happened all those years ago in that motel room, and later at the inn in Belgrade. Liz hearing Katarina's plight decides to help her and her band of merry men escape from her coworkers and the rest of the DC area Police force. They bond just before being ripped apart again by the Townsend Directive, at least that's what Raymond thinks.
Meanwhile to help track down the mysterious woman from Paris, Red asks Ressler to spring former balcklister Dr. Bogdan Krilov to help them locate the man who took up his memory manipulation practices. The hope being that if they can find the man now acting in Krilov's stead, they will be able to find Ilya and most certainly Katarina Rostova.
