After an assassination attempt, Jordania is placed under police surveillance in hospital. His adversary, Pavlovitch, teams up with Atom Parajdanov. They are trying to get to Jordania any way they can. Caplan offers him a deal: hand over information on his rivals (become a “STOUKATCH” – a traitor) in exchange for police protection. Meanwhile, Vogel and Oriane take Hélène Rossi hostage to put pressure on Caplan.
