They witness a private meeting Pratt has with one of his biggest campaign supporters who just so happens to also be in the construction business, leading the teams antenna’s to go up. As they continue to dig further, things turn dangerous when Peter winds up in a car accident. It appears that someone must have tampered with his brakes and realizing the depth of what is going on, Elizabeth asks Neal to keep Peter out of the loop this time so he can stay safe.
In addition to trying to catch the Senator, they are also trying to solve the puzzle of the key that Ellen left behind; what does it open? Knowing Mozzie is the one who can crack this, Neal asks his friend to do what he can to figure out this mystery while Peter assigns Jones to stick close to Moz and find out exactly what he’s up to.
