With Carter's help, Reese and Finch uncover a conspiracy by a broker and an SEC investigator to short the stocks of Tritak, which is about to go under thanks to a pro-fracking bill. They're able to thwart the final stage of their plan by having Adam use Finch's money to reinvigorate the stock, and the conspirators are arrested by the NYPD. The SEC investigator is found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but Carter realizes this happened ''after'' the officer was arrested. She examines security footage of the arrest and realizes that the arresting policeman was [[Recap/PersonOfInterestS01E07 Scarface]], who also dropped a burner phone in a nearby rubbish bin. Carter retrieves the phone and delivers it to Reese, along with her suspicions about who could organize such a slick money-making scheme and could use $300 million to fund a personal war. John dials the only number in the phone's memory.

The latest number is Adam Saunders, a gifted young Wall Street trader with a penchant for expensive suits, adrenaline and sleeping with his boss. Despite this, he's a relatively straight arrow and has a close relationship with his foster father, who runs a franchise of food trucks. Reese gets close to Adam by posing as a client and intervenes to save him from two separate assassination attempts, but isn't fast enough to stop those conspiring against Adam from murdering his boss and framing him for the crime. While Finch investigates Trytek, a pipeline company whose rising stock prices are central to the conspiracy, Reese hides Adam at an abandoned slum building populated by homeless people and introduces him to Joan, an older woman who took care of Reese during his homeless period.
