If you ve been wondering whether this show's animals make diplomats exempt from attacks, the new episode "The Contingency" dispels that notion. The Russian Embassy in Washington, D.C., becomes the target of the latest assault -- and Mitch and Jamie (Billy Burke, Kristen Connolly) are there when it happens. Jackson's (James Wolk) questions get answers at last, but not from someone he expected to furnish them. Ken Olin and Joanne Kelly continue their guest roles.

Troian Bellisario, Lucy Hale and Ashley Benson star.
