In 1936 in Berlin, Germany, Amanda steals currency engraving plates while MacLeod tries to smuggle scientist Lev Arkin (Michael Puttonen) to England. When MacLeod 's contact Werner betrays him, MacLeod has no choice but to trust Amanda to fly Arkin away while he escapes on road. In the present, Amanda is wanted by the FBI.
MacLeod quickly figures out that Amanda wants to counterfeit money with the old plates, but so does Special Agent Palance, who blackmails them into giving him the plates before shooting them dead. MacLeod and Amanda revive shortly after, and Palance is arrested, thanks to Richie who has filmed the whole scene.
