They’re out of witness protection after escaping the drug cartel that haunted their family for years, but the Morgans still face the toughest challenge of their lives.
Zannis, Brody’s ex-drug dealer, is now tormenting him relentlessly. To hurt Brody (Jackson Heywood), Zannis (Caleb Alloway) has turned to harming the people Brody loves the most – his family.
While at Salt, Zannis pays Brody a visit and asks him how his family is doing. Brody is stunned. Has Zannis been inside his house?
Before Brody can ask him what he’s talking about, Zannis drives off.
Just as Brody rushes off to investigate, his phone starts ringing. It’s Nate (Kyle Pryor) –Tori (Penny McNamee) is in the hospital!
After running some tests, they discover high levels of potassium in Tori’s blood, which caused an arrhythmia. How could so much potassium be in her system? Brody keeps his suspicions to himself and investigates the situation alone.
What the Morgans don’t realise is, while they were out, Zannis snuck into their house and poured a vial of potassium into the water jug in their fridge, which Tori unwittingly drank.
When Brody arrives home, he frantically searches through the fridge, looking for clues. He stumbles across the jug and sniffs it.
With all the pieces of the puzzle now coming together for Brody, he is interrupted.
Zannis is back!
Brody leaps into action and things turn violent. With Brody’s rage taking over, Zannis smugly agrees that he could have killed his sister, but he didn’t and he warns Brody that if he doesn’t cooperate, his family will pay the consequences.
Brody relents and agrees to do what Zannis wants, as long as his family is OK.
Desperate times call for desperate measures, but is Brody about to make the biggest mistake of his life?
