Full Recap

Miners are leaving for the day and Troy warns his foreman that they found elevated methane levels. As they chat about their upcoming party, their boss, Dan Blackwell, tells them to get back to work. As Blackwell goes to his trailer office, there's a sudden explosion and he tells his assistant to call his lawyer

Two years later

Troy tell Nate and Eliot that he lost twelve fellow workers due to the explosion, and they just need to work Blackwell received millions from the government due to the explosion, but none of it went into mine safety. Nate promises that they'll find the money and put it back where it belongs. Later, Alec confirms that Blackwell used the money to pay off Debra Pierce, a Virginia attorney general. Blackwell has received 400 citations in the last two years, but Pierce has held them in appeal. Nate plans to get Blackwell to give them the money from his political action committee, and then they'll turn in Blackwell and Pierce for campaign abuse. Sophie and Nate plan to convince Blackwell that his mine is more valuable than he thinks and then sell it to him.

Troy takes Eliot into the mine and assigns Cory, a young miner, to show Eliot to Section C, an unoccupied section where he'll be out of the way. Meanwhile, Sophie and Alec see Blackwell and claim to be safety inspectors. Blackwell has his man Clark take them in and subtly warns them not to probe too much. Nate comes in and offers to buy his mine. Blackwell refuses and Nate leaves, and then calls Parker at the state capitol to tell her to go to work. With some grafter tips from Sophie, Parker goes in and offers to work for Pierce as a campaign consultant. As they talk, Parker plants a bug and offers to work for free, and Pierce accepts her offer.

Cory takes Eliot around, and finally admits that he's working despite his age to pay for his mother and sister, and he lost his father in the explosion. Eliot plants a UHF wireless signaler that Alec has created. Meanwhile, Clark shows Sophie and Alec around and wonders what kind of device Alec is using. Alec claims it's a dust reader and shows Sophie the readers.

Parker is doing well at fund-raising, thanks to planting some fake cash transfers. She sets up an account for the online donations.

Clark reports back to Blackwell and says that Sophie and Alec took some weird readings and looked happy with what they claimed were dust readings. Blackwell figures that they're connected to Nate and Clark confirms where they were going for lunch. Blackwell goes there and sees Sophie and Nate meet. Once Nate leaves, Blackwell comes over and demands to know what Sophie is up to. She explains that she's there to help Nate, who owns the land to the north and east of Blackwell's mine. Blackwell insists the land was mined out for coal, but Sophie explains that they're looking for coltan, a mineral typically found in Central Africa and used for tech components. Sophie claims to work for a company that has produced a process to extract the coltan, and Nate has bought it. Blackwell insists that Nate will never get it and warns that he has a partner.

Alec confirms that Parker planted a fake form about Nate's land purchases among Pierce's paper. Parker makes sure that she finds it. Blackwell calls and confirms that Nate filed the form, and asks Pierce to stall the application process. She buries it, and Blackwell calls Sophie to offer to buy her process. He asks her to come by the mine to provide a demonstration and Sophie agrees.

The next day, Alec demonstrates his (fake) coltan finder and they find samples planted earlier by Eliot. Cory had noticed it but Eliot managed to convince him it was just some new process. Blackwell is convinced and they talk numbers. Meanwhile, Nate brings up Blackwell's bank statements and feeds the info to Sophie via earbud, and she demands most of his funds. Nate then tells Eliot to check out, but Eliot doesn't want to leave them short and Nate gives him one more day. As Cory eats, Eliot notices his antique lunchbox and Cory admits that it belonged to his grandfather. He advises Cory to learn how to use the machinery so he can get ahead.

Pierce discovers that her numbers are up, and wonders why they're up so high. Alec admits he wasn't sure how high to raise them. The plan is to make sure Pierce is confident enough to let Blackwell use the PAC money. The attorney general goes to her office and finds Blackwell waiting for her. Parker gets out and calls the others. Meanwhile, Blackwell asks for some of the PAC money but she says she can't risk it and tells him to use the mine funds. As Nate and Sophie listen in via the bug, Blackwell agrees and calls Clark. He tells his assistant to lay off all the men and prepare to blow up the mine. When they realize they've harmed the miners, Nate comes up with a new plan and figures they're going to have to convince Blackwell that Sophie lied.
