A life-long member of the NRO and NSA, Ogden Greely helped to build the technology that helps the military keep tabs on not only our countries military assets but also keep eyes on the enemy countries as well. This is done via space through satellite technology that has suddenly gone haywire. Turns out Ogden built himself a back door to take over the infrastructure and offer it up to the highest bidder. This tech in the wrong hands could spell certain doom for the United States. Therefore they call on the one man that could help bring a stop to Ogden's dastardly deeds, Director Harold Cooper.
Or is it Senator Cooper? Turns out the Governors office is grooming Harold to take a sitting Senator's seat if he is willing to vote yes on The Black Budget. Cooper, unwilling to do so gives up his senatorial bid, but instead saves the day by getting back the countries satellite technology, with a little help from Red as usual. Speaking of Red his birdwatching friend Ann is back and she is taking in the shows and sights and we get a moment of everyday non criminal Red for a brief moment in this episode. Where they have a lovely day together it all turns sour in the end as Red realizes a normal life will never be in his grasp.
Here are a just a few of our favorite scenes from this week.

We open with a choral version of Wolfang Amadeus Mozart’s “Ave Verum Corpus K. 618” as the Icelandic Naval command is under false attack. As Ann and Red walk through the park we hear “Sunset Village” by Beverly Glenn-Copeland. As Park and Ressler close in on Mia we hear Deeds Plus Thoughts Fatboy Slim Remix of “The World’s Made Up of This and That”. Then at the end of the episode as Red stands Ann up we hear a more harsher tune this time from Beverly Glenn-Copeland with the song “River Dreams”.
