King & Maxwell (with Edgar's significant help) establish that the victim did not commit suicide but was pushed off of the building's rooftop. When a second murder occurs from a bomb explosion, King concludes that the murders are tied to the team's trip to Mexico years ago and King believes he is next on the killer's list.

8"Job Security"Jonathan FrakesScott SullivanJuly 29, 2013 (2013-07-29)1073.14[13]
King and Maxwell are emotionally swayed to take a case to retrieve a cell phone for an elderly man, only to find out that the phone was not for the man, but for the Deputy Director of National Intelligence for infidelity photos in its memory which, due to a shyster lawyer, is being offered up to a drug cartel for information along with a video that might help the suit of a POW whose son was suing for benefits from his fathers return. For her troubles, the Deputy offers to help Michelle get her job back. Sean is secretly given more direction in his investigation of Ritter's assassination by Jose Alverado.
9"Locked In"Kate WoodsGregory WeidmanAugust 5, 2013 (2013-08-05)1093.25[14]
Agent Rigby is charged with protecting and escorting a witness carefully by an angry superior, to an important case, and while Michelle and Sean are there to ask for a favor, the witness is killed. With the building on lock down, King and Maxwell agree to help him with his case, to find the shooter and another witness to testify against the corporation. All the while, Sean finds out Michelle has reapplied to the Secret Service, having been accepted, and is thinking about going back in. Sean also inches closer to the evidence from Ritter's shooting.
10"Pandora's Box"James Whitmore, Jr.Chris DowneyAugust 12, 2013 (2013-08-12)1083.50[15]

Sean mysteriously receives the FBI evidence box in the mail from the Ritter assassination that caused him to lose his career in the Secret Service. (At the end after Michelle had returned the box to Agent Rigby with "no questions asked", an interaction between a Agent Rigby and a wounded Sean implies that Agent Rigby may have been the mysterious source that mailed it to him.) While going to her reinstatement interview for the Secret Service, Michelle detours to photograph some info on file from a secretive past assignment in Mexico both Sean King and Bob Scott never spoke of in detail. That information with the evidence from the FBI evidence box results in Sean's preventing another assassination, this time of Ritter's son, now running for Congress. Catherine Bell recurs her role as Joan Dillinger (see episode 4), now head of the security agency hired by Ritter's son for his event to announce his run for Congress in the same location where his father had been assassinated eight years previously. Without revealing the exact details of the solution here, the season finale thus solves the mystery of how Sean's Secret Service career ended as a result of a conspiracy to assassinate Ritter's father, a conspiracy that attempted to assassinate son Ritter in this episode. However, the episode ends on a cliffhanger regarding who was actually behind that assassination.

Since the series was cancelled, that mystery was never pursued or resolved.
