This week we are focusing on a baddie known as the See-er, a crafty business opportunist that peddles cell phones to bad guys. Not just any cellphones and not even the latest iPhone or Pixel. No these run on the Arcane Wireless network, a network so impenetrable, so untraceable criminals for years have been using it to get away with all sorts of things. The latest criminal showing interest is human trafficking crime lord Odin Interdonato with operations all over the world. After a few demonstrations of the tech by the See-er, Interdonato decides to use the phones exclusively.
Meanwhile Aram runs into an old mentor FJ Powell who we come to find out is applying for Aram’s old job at Grey Lock. This causes a little bit of jealousy on Aram’s part and he does some digging to find that FJ is hiding if not helping Arcane Wireless. Upon confronting him however we find out that the FBI are the ones behind Arcane Wireless but not in enough time because Ressler and Dembe to take out the See-er and blow up a years long operation. Even bigger though is that the phones were inside Red’s network which is how Heddie was busted at the dock for trafficking pirated soybeans. Thankfully Heddie survives a test from Red and she is sprung from prison.
