The Night Agent Season 1 Episode 5 Recap

The fifth episode of season 1 “The Night Agent” begins with a flashback to four years before when Arrington graduated from the Secret Service Academy. During the ceremony, Ben gives a speech as he commands them, and Arrington is surprised to see her mother in attendance. Although she disapproves of Arrington’s career, her mother is proud of her and wants to support her. Years later, Arrington cares for Maddie, who is frustrated that her father is using her as a campaign prop. Although Maddie hates being used like this, Maddie admits that she enjoys the attention sometimes. Arrington tries to comfort her.

During their conversation, Arrington receives a message that an FBI agent requests a meeting with her. Peter asks to speak to her in private and they go for a walk. He questions her about the day of the subway bombing, but Arrington refuses to answer his questions without permission from command. Peter shares his theory that Maddie may be in danger and is working on Farr’s orders. Arrington promises to answer their questions after getting permission. Arrington calls Ben for advice and he tells her to just say that she wasn’t with Maddie the day of the bombing and not reveal anything else. Ben confronts Farr about Peter’s activities, but Farr denies any knowledge, saying they’ll have to wait until Peter comes forward to get more information. Ben warns Farr to be careful and leaves. Farr tries to contact Peter but cannot reach him.

In the library, Peter and Rose investigate the subway bombing. Rose suggests accessing Hawkins’ computer, but Peter thinks that talking to Hawkins’ widow would be more effective. Rose stays behind to investigate the ring the killer is wearing, and Peter agrees to check in with her regularly via the new burner phone he leaves for her before he leaves. Arrington calls Peter to inform him that Maddie is not involved, but Peter’s mention of the cafe throws her off. Yet he is silent.
