In "Bon Voyage," a man becomes obsessed with a small detail to that could spoil his plan to embezzle a fortune and run off to Europe.
As the episode opens, it is Friday evening, and Mr. Alex Thompson is waiting for Hank, the security guard, to go on duty. In the meantime, he fills a box with two hundred thousand dollars and follows through on the details of his carefully laid-out plan.
Once he gets past Hank, who isn't a real stickler for the rules, Mr. Thompson heads for the docks and boards the Concordia. There he "casually meets" Celia on deck....but Celia doesn't like pretending. Their plan to run off to France together is almost complete. So, why do they have to put on an act?
Alex cautions her that it is only because he has taken such incredbily great care with every minute detail that their dream of running away together is coming true.
Then...Alex remembers a detail that was not handled properly. A small mistake that could lead the police in their direction.
So, Alex decides to go take care of that detail before the ship sails...but is it wise to take a chance?
