Captain Kidd is a glorified nerd who takes his love for the web, stratego, and crazy fetish with geocaching and turns it into an enterprise acting as a middleman for criminals. He receives goods from Criminal Party A and then uses Droppers to hide the goods in a secret location. At which point he then conducts a transaction between Criminal Part A the Seller, and Criminal Party B the buyer. For this week’s case Townsend is willing to sell Sophia Maroon an LGBTQ+ champion and ally from Saudi Arabia to the Saudi’s so that they can kill her for her behavior against the the country and the royal family. Thankfully Sophia is pretty good with a a gun and takes out the Saudi buyers just as Ressler and Aram arrive to save the day.
Meanwhile, to move the mythos along, Park tails Andrew Patterson aka Rakitin to a block short of Red’s restaurant. Once Rakitin loses Park he confronts Red about Cooper and the FBI. This in turn has Red confronting Cooper pleading with him to stay out of it for his own good. Meanwhile Rakitin visits our friend in the east who is growing impatient with Red and provides a kill list to Rakitin with Coopers name on it.
Here are a just a few of our favorite scenes from this week.
Our first track “Our Darkness” by Anne Clark plays as the buyers and the task force search for Sophia. Then as Cooper tells Aram stories of the Saudi Royal family we hear “Chains” by Avi Kaplan.
