During The Equalizer Season 1 Episode 8 (titled “Lifeline”), Robyn springs into action when she gets an overseas call for help. The call is from Carla, the daughter of Robyn’s late CIA mentor, David Henson. Robyn teams up with Mel and Harry so they can assist Carla remotely.

They must act fast because Carla is being targeted by a hit squad. Her boyfriend was killed and now the killers are coming after her. After not being able to reach Carla, Robyn begins to worry. “She could be running, hiding or worse,” she says.

What happened last time on ‘The Equalizer’

During The Equalizer Season 1 Episode 7 (titled “Hunting Grounds”) Robyn tries to find a woman (Nia) who was kidnapped by a serial killer. Her best friend realizes something is wrong after Nia leaves for work but never makes it there. The killer’s history of violent crimes wasn’t on anyone’s radar because his victims were from marginalized communities.

Robyn also faces an obstacle after the district attorney attempts to bring her to justice and stop her vigilante ways. Dante and Robyn catch the serial killer. Unfortunately, they have a falling out after Dante expresses disapproval of Robyn’s methods. He later tells the district attorney he will work with her to arrest Robyn for breaking the law.
