If it feels like Morena Baccarin's Elena Federova is pulling all of the strings two episodes into NBC's The Endgame, you wouldn't be wrong. And from what you're about to see from Monday night's episode "Bury the Lede," her control is only going to get stronger as Elena brings a popular news anchor into the game when a hostage situation begins to go south pretty quickly. But Ryan Michelle Bathé's FBI Agent Val Turner is done playing defense and being manipulated. Had Elena gotten a little too confident? Is Val closer to breaking her pattern than she realizes? Here's a look at the preview images (flashbacks, anyone?), overview, and promo for what's to come:
The Endgame Season 1 Episode 3 "Bury the Lede": When a hostage's life is threatened, Elena calls upon a popular news anchor, known as America's most trusted man, to negotiate her release.
Now here's a look back at one of the earliest first-look previews for NBC's The Endgame:
A pulse-pounding high-stakes two-hander about Elena Federova, a recently captured international arms dealer and brilliant criminal mastermind who orchestrates a number of coordinated bank heists throughout New York City for a mysterious purpose. Her antagonist is Val Turner, the principled, relentless and socially outcast FBI agent who will stop at nothing to foil her ambitious plan. The gripping heist drama reveals how far some people will go for love, justice and the most valuable commodity in the world: the truth.
