-- Vigilante hacker Scott Mitchell has been arrested, suspected of killing an elite trader on the streets of New York. But his former colleague Rebecca Macdonald doesn’t believe it for a moment.

-- Meanwhile, the first stage of The Salesman launches his plan to cripple the market for his own profit, and the NCCU are clueless.
-- Will Mitchell be able to clear his name of murder? Will they figure out who the other members of The Water Boys are in time to warn them? And how will they stop MalCom from destroying the global stock markets.
