Team Westen is still on the run from Agent Riley, when things take a turn for the worst. Sam gets shot, Jesse gets captured.
- Badass Boast: In the hospital, as Riley begins what may be the worst and most pointless torture session ever, Sam delivers one on Michael's behalf.
Sam: Before you go, I do have one thing to say. [...] You know, I was slowing Mike down. I'm not any more. You took the gloves off, sister. You called in a hit on his mom. So you don't have to worry about finding Michael Westen. 'Cause he's gonna find you. And when he does, he is gonna end this.
- Sacrificial Lion: Agent Bly, definitely a Hero Antagonist, dies helping Michael prove that Riley's sold out the CIA and DEA to the cartel to take out Michael.
