Special Ops: Lioness Season 1 Episode 4 Recap

Cruz and Aaliyah are swimming around the ocean while Joe and her team and Aaliyah’s guards are watching off in the distance. Aaliyah’s guards get somewhat suspicious of the boat until Joe sends a couple of girls onto the top of the boat to lay out and take selfies.

Who are Ehsan and Kamal?

While Joe and her team overwatch, they get photos of two men watching over the ladies. The two men are Ehsan and Kamal, two brothers in the States on work and student visas. Ehsan is also engaged to marry Aailyah, and Joe says a Saudi Royal will marry a Kuwaiti national.

After the mission for the Lioness team for Kyle goes awry, Kyle gets brought in for questioning by Kaitlyn and Byron to find out who he got to help them on the mission. This leads to him ratting out Joe’s team, and now Kaitlyn wants to meet with Joe.

What happens to Kate in “The Choice of Failure?”

Kate was riding in a car with one of her friends, and someone slammed into her vehicle out of nowhere, causing a massive car crash. Kate broke her femur and fractured her vertebrae, but is stable. One of her friends that was in the accident didn’t make it. However, when the bloodwork is returned, the doctor informs Neil that Kate is pregnant.

Joe needs eyes on Cruz while they are at a party, so she goes in for herself. However, as she watches, Neil calls her to tell her about their daughter being pregnant. She keeps her reaction mild as she is in the bar laying low, but Neil encourages her to be at the hospital tomorrow to be there for their daughter, and she agrees.

Obviously, they were tracking her down and noticed the man had stopped. Joe and the team can get to Cruz before the man rapes her. After getting Cruz awake, Joe kicks the man about to rape Cruz multiple times below the belt and tells him that if he says anything about them at the hospital, they will hunt him down and kill him.
