ÂAlicia and Lockhart/Gardner face off against the US Treasury Department once again, this time aiding Dylan Stack, a lawyer who represents the creator of Bitcoin - an online currency with mysterious origins. Aliciaâ€™s client is being pressured to reveal the name of the anonymous Bitcoin creator so that the government can prosecute him for creating what they believe to be a currency in direct competition with the US Dollar. But when the judge rules that attorney/client privilege prevents Stack from having to reveal the name of his client, the Treasury Department changes tactics and decides to prosecute Stack himself as the creator of Bitcoin. Wendy Scott-Carrâ€™s investigation into Will continues. When Dana Lodge discovers some damning information that could send Alicia to prison, she approaches Kalinda with an ultimatum: help the SAâ€™s office prosecute Will, or theyâ€™ll go after Alicia.
