Isaac comes into the story through Eric. The terrorists have found Nicole and Eric. But their cover has been blown as they’ve escaped.

COREY HAWKINS (ERIC CARTER):
If Nicole’s name goes into the system, she could be found. She could be killed. The only person that he trusts is his brother. But that means going back and opening up that part of his life.
ISAAC CARTER (ASHLEY THOMAS):
He comes to Isaac, who is under the radar and operating outside of the system. Eric used to work for him, and he fell in love with Nicole, who was Isaac’s girlfriend at the time. The lifestyle became too much for them, so Eric and Nicole decided to essentially leave that lifestyle behind. He sees Isaac as the only person he can trust, even though they’re not on speaking terms.
NICOLE CARTER (ANNA DIOP):
It’s probably the last place in the world I want to be. But I also know that it’s the only safe place.
