Detailed Synopsis

A group of Cuban refugees are on a boat heading to Miami. A Young Boy asks a Sick Old Man how far it is to Florida and what will happen if they are caught by the Americans. The Captain says the engine wont start. The Young Boy sees a ship coming towards them with an American flag. The refugees start to celebrate and the ship comes to the refugee boat. Rostov, wearing an American Navy uniform, tells the refugees welcome to the United States and then walks to the lower deck and sticks out his hand to Sick Old Man. As Sick Old Man reaches for Rostov, Rostov shoots him in the head and the rest of the refugees are shot and killed. Rostov calls for Nikko who brings Castillo onto the refugee boat, and Castillo shows Tomas where cocaine is hidden on the boat. Cassidy arrives at the Miami port and a Policeman tells Detective Tom Green the FBI are here. Detective Green tells Cassidy information about the Coast Guard ship that was found floating near Boca Raton. Cassidy tells Johnston and Harper to check out McGuire, who was on the boat before Detective Green and his men arrived. McGuire complains to Johnston and Harper that she has been held against her will for over an hour by the police. Harper asks McGuire who she works for and Johnston asks her how she made it to the ship before the police did. They continue to question her and she hands over the photographs she took. Detective Green opens the door to the ship and Cassidy sees it full of dead men stripped of their uniforms. Matt Hunter and John Eagle capture an alligator and put it in a cage. Rostov walks into a building and has a meeting with Mickey. Rostov tosses a bag full of cocaine towards Mickey who then has one of his men make a phone call. Mickey hands Rostov the phone and Nikko tells Rostov that the weapons are all there. Mickey's Coke Girl starts snorting some of the coke and Rostov shoves her head into the coke, shoving the coke straw into her nose. He then grabs Mickey's gun and shoots Mickey in the crotch with it after killing Mickey's guards. Rostov throws Mickey's Coke Girl through the window and leaves. A Man walks into Mickey's office and takes the cocaine and runs away. John Eagle brings the alligator to Clark Little Hawk to sell, but Clark Little Hawk is hesitant to buy it at first but eventually does. Adams rows to Matt's house and goes inside and sees Matt Hunter's Armadillo making a nest out of a blanket. Matt grabs Adams and tells him he isn't interested. Adams tells Matt that the agency believes Rostov is in the country. Matt tells Adams the agency should have let him kill Rostov when he had the chance.

A flashback occurs where the United States ambassador goes to the home of an African politician. Rostov sneaks onto the grounds of the African politician and as he is about to kill the Ambassador, Matt Hunter sneaks up on him and puts a gun to his head. Rostov wakes up from the nightmare and tells Nikko they must kill Matt. Nikko advises against it, but Rostov demands Matt die. Rostov and a group of men take four air boats and head to Matt's house. They arrive at his house shortly before John Eagle does and after John Eagle warns Matt, John Eagle is shot and killed by Nikko. Rostov and his men then shoot and blow up Matt's house including Tomas, Kurt and Koyo. Matt Hunter's Armadillo runs from the destroyed house, while Matt is covered in debris. Matt lays John Eagle's body on a mattress and then sets the remains of his house on fire. Matt takes an air boat to John Eagle's airboat rides building and gets into John Eagle's truck. In Miami, Rostov and Nikko are at a restaurant and Rostov calls Americans decadent and says they are their own worst enemies. Teen Girl on Beach and Teen Boy on Beach are kissing on a towel. Nikko walks up to them and shoots them both and a series of landing craft arrive on the beach. A large group of men from different countries jump off the boats and run onto the beach with weapons. They run to different commercial trucks and are split into different groups to be sent to different major cities in the United States. Rostov tells Nikko, in 18 hours, America will be a different place. At Rey's Pizza, Adams meets with Matt and Matt agrees to go after Rostov.

Angela greets Tomas. One of the Terrorists with Tomas tells him they don't have time to be messing around, but Tomas leaves anyways with Angela. As Tomas is getting undressed, Matt stabs a knife through his injured hand and tells Angela to leave. Matt asks Tomas where Rostov is. Victor grabs Matt and asks him what is going on and Matt throws him out and warns him not to come back. Tomas tells Matt he doesn't know where Rostov is, but tells him where they next attack will be. Victor and his friend walk into the room and Matt easily knocks down Victor's friend.
