A man rushes down the sidewalk to hand over a package to his neighborhood postal carrier. The mail truck turns the corner leaving the man standing on a peaceful suburban street. BANG! The man shoots himself in the head. The package he was so anxious to send off before committing suicide is addressed to Olivia Pope. There’s sheet music inside. Huck quickly determines this is actually a coded message asking for protection for a group of covert operatives. He knows the people on the list are spies because his name is amongst them.
The man who committed suicide was a case officer for a top secret, CIA-funded program known as B-613. Huck wants to disappear to keep his friends safe. Olivia is not about to let that happen. The team learns that an international master hacker named Nigel Sarnoff is set to release information that will devastate the intelligence community. Olivia scores a video chat with the guy through his lawyer. She realizes that Sarnoff doesn’t have the goods yet. One of the spies on the list will be providing him with the info. That’s why Olivia tells Huck to assemble all of these highly-trained killers in her office so they can plug the leak.
Huck uses short wave radio frequencies to contact his former colleagues. One by one they arrive. Maggie is a mother of three who was nicknamed “Wink” due to her need to keep one eye closed during her sniper days. Paul is a college professor. Melvin is a doctor. Betsy owns a B&B. Finally, there’s Charlie. He’s the killer we first met in Season 1’s “Crash and Burn.” All spies are asked to surrender their guns. Olivia tells them to stay put while she works to stop Sarnoff from destroying the new lives they’ve all built. In other words, she wants them to resist the urge to kill anyone.
Quinn monitors the spies via a surveillance feed. She details all their phone calls. The only call Huck makes is to his new girlfriend, Becky. The spies know that someone in the room is the leak. Quinn realizes that they didn’t surrender all of their weapons, as everyone has a gun pointed at someone else. Harrison dials up enough courage to talk everyone into lowering their pistols until his boss returns. Olivia learns there’s been a payoff to a Swiss bank account with numbers that match a prescription Melvin called in. The good doctor is the leak.
Harrison intercepts the secret files Melvin was planning to sell. The spies want to kill the traitor amongst them. Huck makes an impassioned speech as to how he likes a woman who will never know he’s a killer. He believes Melvin just wanted to free himself of his past. He just wanted to feel normal. BANG! Wink shoots Melvin dead in the head. Everyone liked Huck’s speech, but it wasn’t enough to save a traitor’s life. The spies all spring into clean-up mode as Huck sits in stunned silence. He later tells Olivia that his spy nickname of “Spin” is short for “Spinster” because his colleagues never thought he’d meet anyone. They were wrong.
