A shocking murder rocks the world as Nigeria’s leader, President Udoh, is killed by a mysterious assassin. 

The CIA is the prime suspect, but its new director Wright and his deputy Ryan have no clue if their agency is behind it. They dig deeper and discover that their predecessor, Miller, had authorized nine secret missions hidden under a complex code. Ryan decides to cancel them all but doesn’t know what he’s messing with.

Meanwhile, in Mexico, a brutal hitman named Chavez eliminates the boss of a rival drug gang, giving his own boss, Marquez, the upper hand in the market. Marquez is about to join the Silver Lotus Triad, an influential Chinese crime syndicate that will provide him with raw materials and other resources to make more drugs. 

In exchange, the Triad will use Marquez’s smuggling routes in America to launch terrorist attacks.

What Ryan doesn’t realize is that he has just disrupted a carefully orchestrated plan that involved the killing of the Nigerian president. The goal was to secure the trade routes between the Triad and Marquez and to create chaos and confusion in the CIA. 

Ryan and Wright have to face the wrath of the Senate, which demand answers and accountability from them. They promise to reform the agency and make it more transparent and responsible. Ryan also has some good news in his personal life, as he reunites with his girlfriend Cathy.

Wright and Ryan have a big mess to clean up after taking over the CIA from Miller, who ran several shady operations without proper records. Ryan and Greer try to crack Miller’s code, but it’s like finding a needle in a haystack. 

Ryan decides to pull the plug on all these operations, but that’s when he runs into Chavez.

Chavez is a black ops agent who has been infiltrating the Mexican cartel for Pluto, one of Miller’s projects. He has killed many people in the name of national security, but he soon realizes that he has been manipulated by Miller, who is part of a bigger conspiracy.

He feels betrayed and angry but can’t walk away from his mission.

Chavez begs Ryan to keep Pluto alive because he has uncovered a dangerous alliance between the Triad and the cartel involving more than just drugs. 

He knows he has been used as a pawn but still wants to expose the truth and stop the threat. He needs Pluto to continue as it was, or he will be in grave danger.

Ryan is shocked to discover that Miller, his former boss, is in cahoots with the criminals they were supposed to stop. He learns from Chavez that Pluto, a secret project that Miller runs, had to be exposed and stopped. However, he needs Miller to cooperate and reveal his contacts to do that. Ryan hopes to persuade Miller to become a CIA informant and help him unravel the mystery. But his hope was short-lived, as Miller is assassinated.

Chavez senses that he was next on the hit list. He knows that Miller’s death means that Tuttle and his bosses are wiping out anyone who knows about Pluto. 

Chavez is the only CIA agent left who has any knowledge of Pluto and the deal between the Triad and the cartel. He is also a formidable opponent who can threaten Tuttle and his bosses. Chavez has enough information to blow the lid off the scheme, but he also knows that he has to act fast before they get to him.

Jack Ryan season 4 is a thrilling story of betrayal, secrets, and danger. Who will survive? Who will expose Pluto? Who is behind it all? Find out in the next episode!
