Episode 12, False Truths

The episode begins with Sector Omega transporting Omega Tech's data vault to its base. However, their van is intercepted by a helicopter, resulting in the theft of an important part of the vault. Meanwhile, at the Tasker mansion, Dana expresses dissatisfaction with Harry and Helen for their frequent absences from home, prompting Helen to talk to Harry about her job. Soon after, they get a notification that a briefing is scheduled for the next morning.

Gib informs the team about the van hijacking incident. He informs them that Krypsys has stolen the data and that with the information in their hands they could become a potential threat. Although the computer tower is encrypted, they contacted the hackers to decrypt the information. Gib introduces the team to Max, who was previously involved with Omega in one of their missions. However, the team shows they are running out of ideas and asks Gib to rethink.

Gib reminds her that she is the only liaison to the Washington hacking underground. is and they start working on the mission. Gib further explains that Max is currently in high school and has been given a fake prescription that says he has mononucleosis. This ruse was staged so that Max could take a leave of absence from school and join the mission.

Luther and Maria are in engineering and Luther is unhappy that Maria is bringing Kevlar. They meet Quinn, who presents them with glasses with a hidden video recorder and transmitter, and several miniature cameras disguised as watch batteries. Maria mentions Kevlar and says Luther should spend more time with him.

Why are Harry and Helen shocked to see Max as Dana's boyfriend?

At their apartment, Harry and Helen find out that Dana is seeing Max when she tells them that her boyfriend is avoiding her because of mononucleosis. Harry and Helen are shocked and offended to learn that Dana is dating Max. They express their concerns to Gib at Omega HQ, who tells them that he is already aware of the situation. This makes Harry and Helen realize that they should have an open and honest dialogue with Dan.

Can Helen break up with Dana and Max?

The team arrives in Washington, D.C., where they find themselves in an abandoned restaurant called Shaking Crawfish. The restaurant is across the street from the warehouse where the hacker group is. Krypsys contacted a collective of hackers to break into the Omega computer tower. Max's experience dealing with computer crime and alcohol hoarding scares Helen when she tells Harry that they should try to break up Dan and Max. Helen calls Dana and misinforms her about Max's illness, leading Dana to believe that Max is lying to her.

The mission begins and Max and Gib meet the hackers, with Gib disguised as Gibinator, the hacker. They meet LegND, the leader of the collective, then eavesdrop on the camp with miniature cameras. Max approaches him and tells him that he heard from a client who needs access to government computers. He asked him to recommend Gib for the job, citing Gib's experience in the field. LegND passes out from the potion while Harry steals data from his computer.

Why was Gib seen working in the field?

At their base, the team discovers Krypsys was using LegND to obtain information on Omega agents. They have information on the entire team except for Gib. LegND paired Krypsys with a hacker named Eightball, who helped them infiltrate the Omega computer system. As they continue to argue, Max blames Harry and Helen for convincing Dan to break up with him. He becomes melodramatic and refuses to cooperate with the mission. At Gib's urging, Helen calls Dana and asks her to reconcile with Max in order to save the operation.

Luther and Maria are playing number eight when he arrives at the airport. Kevlar is with them during capture. Luther then asks Maria about Kevlar and why he always takes it with him on missions. She mentions that she was offered another job and will be leaving the team soon. That's why she brought Kevlar as a backup.

Dana reconciles with Max over a video call where he tells her he has a doctor's appointment. He takes a screenshot of Max and thinks about the name of the restaurant. Besides, she doubts him and decides to visit this place. Max also makes a truce with Harry and Helen, who continue their mission. LegND calls Gib to a meeting about the burglary and they prepare for a confrontation.

At the warehouse, LegND informs Gib of the meeting while Harry and Helen watch through wired cameras. Later, a woman representing Krypsys arrives in a helicopter. LegND greets her and introduces Giba. Apparently, Gib is hooked up to a microphone and Max helps him talk about his previous hacking jobs. As Gib begins the task, Krypsys's boss plants a jammer and her men kill everyone present except Gib. In the presence of the jammer, Gib loses contact with his team and his team starts to worry.

As the team prepares to storm the building, Dana unexpectedly arrives at the base. Harry and Helen meet Dana and reveal their spy identity to her. Helen explains everything to her while Harry and the others enter the warehouse and attack the enemies. Then there's the shooting.

In the chaos of the gunfight, Luther pleads with Maria not to leave the team. Krypsys Head tries to escape with the computer, but Harry intercepts them and destroys the computer. As he holds her, she injects him with a sedative and kidnaps him.

Why was Krypsys created?

In Switzerland in 1994, two guards greeted arriving visitors at the entrance to the building. One of the guards finds a moment to call his daughter and ask if she has done her homework. In the course of the conversation, she said that she had recently learned about kryp, a phenomenon where creatures disguise themselves as something else. The peace is unexpectedly disturbed when the building is attacked. A security guard loses his life, and his daughter listens helplessly to the horrific events unfolding in the background.

Supposedly, the head of Krypsys is a girl from the past. Harry was taken to an unknown location and locked in a room. Gib leaves his temporary base in Washington with Helen, Max and Dan. While traveling, Dana continues to process the startling discovery that her parents are spies.

When they reach their residence, Gib leaves them and directs them to meet him at the headquarters along with Jake. Helen reveals to Jake. Dana talks about the snow globes Harry gave her after each of his "sales trips" when they were packing their bags to Omega HQ.

Everyone at Omega HQ is looking for traces of the helicopter that kidnapped Harry. Helen arrives with Dan and Jake. The helicopter is tracked and Helen and the other agents leave as Dana and Jake join Max.

Why was Harry brainwashed?

In an undisclosed location, the boss of Krypsys tells Harry that an agent of Omega Sector killed her father just for guarding the gate, and that he has been working to destroy Omega Sector for twenty years. Harry was injected with a serum and brainwashed.

His perception is manipulated into believing that his family has allied with Krypsys and turned against him. In addition, he is brainwashed by devices attached to his head while the person gives instructions through a microphone. In fact, the serum turned out to be a combination of drugs and sleeping suggestions to break the spies.

Harry had been brainwashed into believing that even his teammates had turned against him. The person in charge of the trial tells the boss of Krypsys that Harry's vital signs are elevated and they should stop the trial, to which she refuses. Allegedly, Gib, Helen, Luther and Maria find an abandoned helicopter in the parking lot.

Searching the area, they discover Escalade or Navigator vehicle tracks. Gib sends information to the head office. Max, along with Dan and Jake, also searches for the vehicle and identifies the Escalade by following a mysterious trail.

True Lies (season 1 finale), end of episode 13, explains:

They follow the vehicle to Nyxis Pharmaceuticals, where Krypsys is operating undercover. Harry continues to be brainwashed in the lab and manages to break through his psychological barriers. When Helen, Luther and Maria break into the building, Harry is released from captivity and set free.

Does Harry have his senses under control?

The team finds Harry, who unexpectedly starts shooting at them. They fail to make him realize that she and his friends exist. Krypsys leave the building and activate the alarm to destroy it. When Gib informs Omega's headquarters of Harry's condition, Trilby orders him to kill Harry as he could potentially be a threat to the organization.

After several attempts, Helen approaches Harry unarmed and tries to bring him back to her. When Harry realizes this is true and that the band is like his family, Maria also decides not to leave the group. They then all run out of the building, which self-destructs.

Back at Omega HQ, Gib informs the team that Harry has recovered and that there will be some changes in light of the Krypsys threat. Helen takes Harry home, where they invite her team over for dinner. As the episode ends, Krypsys's boss is outside their house directing someone over the phone to begin phase three.
