Season 2, Episode 1: "Ilsa Pucci"
Air Date: November 17, 2010

The episode opens forty-eight hours into Winston's kidnapping and the brutal interrogation has yielded some fruit for the bad guy from last season. But a rescue plan is in play as the kidnappers escort Winston into a bank to retrieve a book locked in a safety deposit box. Posing as bank security guards, Chance and Guerrero observe their friend, surrounded by the bad guys, being hustled for the banks exit. When rescue Plan A fails (Chance sets off a robbery alarm - a SILENT alarm), he sets off a fire alarm, eliciting an armed stand-off between kidnappers, banks security, Chance, Guerrero and a bomb-strapped Winston. Suffice it to say, Chance prevails.

Flash forward six months to an ashram in Nepal. Chance, in the midst of contemplative monks, is deep in meditation, perhaps achieving his version of nirvana. A helicopter descends into this isolated landscape, bringing a powerful, wealthy woman, Ilsa Pucci, and her security team to bring Chance back to the U.S.

Ilsa tells Chance that she is being tailed and, since one of her security was killed, this assassin means her harm. Chance determines the threat wants to be discovered since his assassin allowed Ilsa's security to spot him. Chance wants to use Ilsa as bait to lure out the threat so Ilsa agrees to proceed with a planned charity event she hosts.

The gala aka The Trap begins. Guerrero, Winston and Chance eye the guests. We learn that Ilsa's husband recently died in a plane crash in Switzerland and we meet Shelly, the family lawyer. Winston senses something from a female security guard, then notices the same woman later dressed in evening attire. This is Ames, pure trouble (and the new HT cast member). The team keeps an eye on her and several other suspicious guests.

Later, Ilsa is kidnapped and aboard a plane bound for Switzerland. Her captor is Shelly, who reveals she is in cahoots with Ilsa's not-actually-deceased husband. The plan is to clean out Ilsa's bank accounts for which both spouses must be present to engage the retinal scan. Meanwhile, the team captures and interrogates Ames, sure that she will reveal who is behind the kidnapping. She confesses Fat Tony hired her to switch the ring Ilsa was wearing. However, Fat Tony is dead and Ames knows she's next in track-cleaning, so convinces the team to bring her in on the take-down. Checking flights out of San Francisco after the party, they discovered one to Switzerland, coincidentally the land of private banks and where Ilsa's husband's flight went down. The new gang of four give chase, knowing this will lead them to Ilsa.

[Chance removed a credit card from his pocket, tosses it on the desk. The warden looks up at him.]
Chance: "That, my friend, is a Bank of Zurich Black Card. Airport club access... Concierge service... No spending limit."
[The warden reacts. He certainly understands that last part.]
Chance: "I'll have Baptiste back to you in forty-eight hours. Until then, go nuts."

Chance turns to his nemesis, Baptiste (Lennie James), for help when Ilsa's friend is held hostage.

Winston: "Who knows. Maybe things would have been different between you and me if I'd gotten him back then."
Michelle: "If it wasn't Broward, it was some other crime boss, some drug dealer, some other bad guy you were consumed with taking down. You have a laser-like focus on whatever's in your sights. But that focus was never on us."
Winston: "You're right. You deserved better."
Michelle: "We both did."

Chance: "You got a problem with an honest day's work?"
Guerrero: "Uh, yeah, actually."

When a murder attempt is made on a seemingly innocuous family, Chance (Mark Valley) and the team must travel to their version of hell during the holiday season - suburbia, where Chance and Guerrero (Jackie Earle Haley) go undercover at a boring corporate office, Winston (Chi McBride) joins a neighborhood book club and Ames (Janet Montgomery) chaperones a high-school party as they try to figure out which family member is being targeted and why.

Chance: "Did you hear that impact? That was no bird, that was a missile."
Pilot: "A missile? Why would someone be shooting missiles at us... ?"

Chance's investigation into Ilsa's late husband's past uncovers a web of deception and lies that may tear the team part forever.
