Brennan and Booth investigate the body of a man murdered for the undisclosed contents of a briefcase. Early evidence leads the team to suspect secret operatives are at work, and their theories are supported when the liquefied remains of a CIA agent are discovered in the trunk of a car. When Brennan and Booth interrogate the CIA’s Assistant Director of Intelligence, they are left unsure of his allegiance to the U.S.
Meanwhile, Brennan’s best-selling book leads to financial success and serves as a point of contention with Booth, and Jeffersonian intern Wendell loses his scholarship, leaving the team to look for alternative funding to keep him around.

Goofs--Booth says to Rutledge that "if you want to know what's in the case you call in the Calvary". The actual phrase is "Call in the Cavalry". Cavalry are the horse mounted soldiers that were the highest order of the ground based military. In popular vernacular, calling in the cavalry refers to calling in reinforcements, which would often times be the horse mounted cavalry due to their being able to travel much faster than foot soldiers. Calvary (or Golgotha) is the English name of the hill where they crucified Jesus Christ.
