After Segev pleads not guilty, Naomi tells the detective that she wants him to place Segev in protective custody and explains the situation surround Danielle/Sophie’s death. Unable to get any answers from Omer, Tali takes him to Assaf, who she hopes will make Omer talk.

With the detective finding a report that backs up Naomi’s claims, he orders Segev to get placed in protective custody. But before that can happen, he is beaten up in the prison yard. Although he survives, Segev wakes up in hospital to find Martin beside him. Meanwhile, Naomi gets told that her relationship with Segev may taint the story, so her editor suggests sharing her byline to ensure it’s published. Naomi will not share her byline! Good for her!

In the hospital, Martin/Reece asks Segev to give him the notebook as Danielle/Sophie died trying to give him the notebook. Martin/Reece goes on to tell Segev that Danielle/Sophie heard Assaf plan a meeting with his boss Eitan Sharon. After she followed him to the meeting, she broke into Eitan’s car and found top-secret documents, and to protect her identity, she killed one of their guards.

After Danielle/Sophie contacted Martin/Reece using a coded message, he knew she needed to be out of Israel asap. Instead of leaving immediately, which would have saved her life, it took her 72 hours to leave.

Martin/Reece tells Segev that if he hands over the notebook, he will be supplied with a new identity.
