Previously on "Imposters"...

- [bell dings]
- The Doctor wants the ring.

- That's it?
- That's it.

Just get the saffron diamond ring,

deliver it to the Doctor,

and then you can go your
bumbling little way.


See you soon, macaroon.

I'm Shelly. Shelly Cohen.

I'm fairly confident
you know my ex-wife.

You're Lenny Cohen's husband?

- Ex-husband.
- Ex-husband.


You know this man I work for,

the Doctor?

I'm gonna k*ll him.

We're gonna find out who he
is and what makes him tick,

and before we deliver him to the FBI,

we'll take him for everything he's got.

- Agent Simons?
- Mr. Bloom.

You know the same truth that I do.

None of us can move on
until this thing is done.

Tell me what you're thinking.

There's this Northeast
Biannual Conference

of Orthopedic Surgeons in two weeks,
Niagara Falls.

There's a very prestigious
award being given away

- called the Egan Award.
- Jeffery?

The Doctor thinks he's winning.

This is Harry Price.

The committee has decided to...

reward your understanding
with this year's Egan Award.

I'd be delighted.

we'll infiltrate his headquarters.

- Looks like the basement.
- Top left pocket.

I think it's his father.

Wipe our info, steal the money,

and then we'll plant the ring on him,
deliver him to the Feds easy-peasy.

Any questions?

No questions, great.

How is making all the money we need
in three days not smart?

Yo, I think he's actually
getting off on this.

Nobody who gets conned is innocent.

They all wanted something for cheap.

Okay, now you're starting
to sound like our ex-wife.

- Do you have the ring?
- It's within reach.

Good. And Max?

He doesn't suspect a thing.

None of them do.

I know what you're doing.

- Yeah, what's that?
- You're gonna k*ll the Doctor.


We have a problem.

And sure, there's a certain comfort

have to be ourselves

does it get to a point that
you forget who you really are?

I mean, I fell for you in Mexico,

we lied to each other

About our lives, our names.

We even stole from each other.

But what if my heart was lying too?

How can we even know what
we actually feel anymore?

Who does he want to be with,

You know,
a very smart woman once told me

that each of us has an authentic self.

Sometimes we lose touch with it, right?

Sure, but how do you find it

I'll be in touch.

Northeast Chapter.

I've been assigned to take care
of you during the convention.

So nice to meet you.

It's simple: Richard covers for Maddie

with the real Egan winner,
and everything's covered.

I think we should tell Sally and Max

that she wants to k*ll the Doctor.

We tell 'em, and Sally might just go
and blow Maddie's brains out.

I'm not kidding.

She wouldn't. She loves Maddie.

Hey, close the curtains.
The view isn't right.

Yeah, we all love Maddie.

Even after Seattle,

even when I thought I was over her,

Maddie still defined me, you know?

who I could be without her,

and that turned out to be...

An enormous, life-shattering lie?


and now it's like,

I don't know who I'm gonna be without...

you guys.

Yeah, ridiculous.

Okay, no matter what,
six months from today,

below my old apartment.

- I'm in.

I love you stupid idiots.

We love you too, dummy.

I thought we weren't gonna cry.

Excuse me.

Are you Mr. Baby Dog Eyes?

Oh, uh, yeah, I am. I think.

Did you know the first person
to go over the Niagara Falls in a barrel

I have an update on Cincinnati.


Hello, Doctor?

Go ahead, Ernie.

I'm listening.
