Soon they are assigned only the most delicate operations deemed too difficult for other agents. They Promise not to discuss each other’s past in the force, but information are revealed unwillingly during each mission. The couple is also aided by, Samantha’s ex-boyfriend, Leo Nash (Carter MacIntyre), and geeky computer expert Bill Hoyt (Ben Schwartz).
