The Equalizer - Glory

Team Equalizer gets its first case when a single mother answers Robyn McCall's (Queen Latifah) ad after her son is kidnapped by human traffickers looking for information in her boss' safe. It turns out her boss (Charlie Semine) is with the FBI and the safe contains the name of a confidential informant within the trafficking ring. Detective Marcus Dante (Tory Kittles) continues to seek the mystery woman, including tying her to a recent double-homicide (where she saved to kids from the traffickers), but Robyn's cause may have garnered a new friend in the FBI as her actions not only protect his witness but also lead to the discovery of a mole within his own team.

"Glory" keeps to the template of the first episode with Harry (Adam Goldberg) doing his hacker thing, Mel (Liza Lapira) providing tactical support, and Bishop (Chris Noth) showing up to warn his friend that the CIA aren't pleased about her recent ventures. The struggle of balancing her role of vigilante and mother also creeps in as well. As to the CIA, the show pauses the conflict suggesting Robyn will do some work for her old agency (although it's unclear if that will be on or off camera) in exchange for being left alone to peruse her new hobby and spend some quality time with her daughter (Laya DeLeon Hayes) who is pleased to have her mother finally show up to an important event.
