[A very complicated plot, but gives background for Webb and the CIA connections which will be used in upcomming episodes]
Mac (M) was in her new office at JAG and shown helping Bud (B) study for a law exam. Corporal Jason Magida, who had been in the brig for eight of his twenty year sentence for espionage, poisoned the water supply to overwhelm the brig’s infirmary and escaped during the confusion. He made a beeline for the man who had put him there, Admiral Chegwidden (c), and took him hostage – “to clear his name.” Chegwidden, who had wanted to see Harm (H) on the Russell file, told him he wanted the “Clawson file” (which was a code for someone who had taken their CO hostage). Harm picked up on the reference and, with B’s help, and cleared the building.
