As the team enlist the help of DCS Robert Thacker, who was the original cop on the case, they discover that Miriam/Nadia was once an undercover cop who never returned to the fold.
Intriguing premise for the episode with shades of “Inception” and it’s multi-level world with the Unit discovering that Miriam is three different identities, the fact that Miriam has been unable to give up her undercover role is clearly something Bloom can strongly identify with.
