Favorite Quotes:

* Gideon: “Whoever undertakes to set himself up as judge in the field of truth and knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods.” -Albert Einstein

* Gideon: “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” -George Orwell

Synopsis: A taxi drives into a dock at night. A woman and two kids get out of the taxi. A man drives up and loads them into his car. He hides them somewhere and goes back to his apartment. He’s tortured to death. Two men come in and stage a suicide. Gideon makes a call from his office. He doesn’t get a return call but a visit. It’s the dead man (John Summers) boss. He thinks he has a mole and wants Gideon and his team to find out who. Gideon briefs the team. The woman turned as a mole against her husband for the CIA. She and the kids are in a container waiting for Summers to return for them. The team shows up at Langley. At Garcia’s office she is given full access to the CIA’s computer system. She and JJ are in awe. In the conference room at Langley they begin to profile the unsub. Garcia finds a video that Gideon is in with Summers. Bruno briefs his team on why the BAU is there and they are to cooperate. They rewatch the video. Summers believes there was only 4 possibilities. Gideon figures out who the four could be. They focus in on those four. Back in the container, the three are running out of water and the batteries go out in the lantern. Reid helps figure out where Summers might have hidden the three. As Morgan is questioning Gina she tries to psych him out by zooming in on his house. Elle questions Olivia. Two of the suspects were having an affair. Olivia words on a secluded station and she is suddenly killed. No one else knows. They pull the other three in and tell them all at once. Gideon and Bruno have a private chat. The cameras went down from a virus implanted in the system three weeks ago. Garcia calls and she gives them some more information. Summers ordered his own psych evaluation. Back in the container, the mother leaves to go find more water. Gideon, Hotch and Morgan rewatch the video again with Gideon and Summers. Garcia realizes that all the boat talk in the interview was telling Gideon how to find Aliyah and the kids. She returns to the container with supplies, only to find that her husband is there. Gideon takes over and sends Gina out with Morgan. They assemble a team to head to the port. Reid takes over satellite operation. Reid finds the container pretty quick. Back in the container, Hasan is there. The team arrives. At Langley Hotch singles that it’s not Kruger, which only leaves his friend Bruno as the mole. Gina and Morgan race through the containers trying to find the correct one. Reid gives them directions. Gideon tells Morgan to make the arrest. They get Hasan to let Aliyah go, but Gina turns on Morgan and puts her gun on him. Bruno gives her the order to kill Hasan. She refuses until he gives the order. She fires multiple times. Bruno thanks Gideon. Gideon asks him why he betrayed his country. At the port, Gina did not kill Hasan at all. Reid receives a call and informs them Hasan is not dead. They take Bruno into custody. The CIA agents leave Garcia’s office. She is trying to find out Prince William’s phone number as the system disconnects from her set up. The team says their goodbyes at Langley and head back to the BAU.
