Without Logan's knowledge, the player and Connor set off to Saudi Arabia to investigate Logan's wife who was doing charity work in the country. Once the pair arrived at a nearby charity tent, they discovered the body of charity worker Faisal Jabour with his spine cut out. The duo first questioned charity organization representative Aisha Bennet and Spencer's girlfriend, The Divine Purpose organiser Aurora Garcia, as well as suspecting Logan's wife Leonora Jones. While the pair recapped the investigation, Logan demanded they meet him in his office immediately.

In his office, Logan demanded an explanation to why they were in Saudi Arabia. Spencer quickly covered for the team, saying he wanted to visit his girlfriend but knew Logan would never allow him to use agency resources to do so. Logan, still suspicious by the team's actions, accepted the explanation and told them to head to the charity's headquarters. There, they suspected student Faye Bordeaux who was on a gap year and philosopher Montgomery Harrington. They were then informed that the victim's spine had been found in the headquarters. The duo headed back there and found the spine, sending it away for analysis. From there, they were able to arrest Montgomery for the murder.

Montgomery refused to confess, demanding they stop the accusations. Eventually, he cracked, admitting to the murder. When asked why he killed Faisal, he revealed that he was getting revenge for what Faisal had done in the past. Montgomery recounted how, years ago, he used to live in Saudi Arabia with his teenage son. One day, his son and a teenage Faisal went to a nearby spring. There, as a cruel prank, Faisal held Montgomery's son's head under the water but accidentally did it for too long, leaving his son with permanent brain damage. Years later, when Montgomery came back to Saudi Arabia to research his latest thesis, he encountered Faisal. Montgomery confessed that all his pent up rage came out and he attacked Faisal, cutting his spine out with an oyster knife to symbolise how the man was spineless. At his trial, Montgomery was sentenced to twenty-five years in prison by Judge Armstrong.

Post-trial, Riya and the player assisted Aisha in organising a gala to raise funds for the charity. After finding and organising the right assortment of beverages, Spencer suggested they ask Aurora to spread the invites as she had connections through the group. Aurora happily agreed to Spencer's proposal and the couple shared a kiss before Aurora left to spread the word. A few hours later, the team attended the event and helped donate to the charity. At the end of the night, a grateful Aisha thanked the team for all they had done.

Meanwhile, Connor and the player decided to search for more clues about Logan's mysterious past. The duo soon found his journal amongst Leonora's possessions and secretly sent it to the lab for analysis. Analysis revealed that the journal talked about the Blackmoor Haven mental institution located in Dubai. So Logan didn't know the player was heading to Dubai, Anya told the pair that the team's pilot, Malcolm Fletcher, would be able to organise a covert flight to the country, saying he'd last been seen by the Jawatha mosque. The player soon found Malcolm and told him the details. Finally, as the team waited in the plane's lobby, Malcolm discreetly told the player and Riya that he'd got hold a helicopter from an old friend and that it was ready to take them to Dubai. With no time to waste, the pair set off to Dubai to uncover the truth.
