Citadel - Tell Her Everything

Still largely concerned with coquettishly teasing Nadia (Priyanka Chopra Jonas) as the leading suspect to be Citadel's mole, "Tell Her Everything" opens with the man who used to be Mason Kane (Richard Madden) and Nadia rescuing Carter (Osy Ikhile) from a Manticore black site. After his accusations against Nadia, most of the episode takes place in an extended flashback filling in a bit of Nadia's spy romance with Mason and their time together at Citadel along with revealing that Kyle's current wife (Ashleigh Cummings) is also a mind-wiped Citadel agent.

Given what happened to her former friend, who Mason had backstopped off the record while destroying her real personality, we can see the case the series is attempting to make for the betrayal that might lead to Nadia walking away from Mason and Citadel. The episode also marks the point where the show needs to start answering questions about the mysterious setup and that's where you can start to see the cracks in the stylish Citadel forcing audiences to accept a hell of a lot to make the slowly-revealed plot working beginning with tying Kyle's wife both to his current life and to the mission where the mysterious piece of tech went missing.
