A typical episode begins with a crime, which is subsequently investigated by a team of FBI agents led by Don and mathematically modeled by Charlie, with the help of Larry Fleinhardt (Peter Mac Nicol) and Amita Ramanujan (Navi Rawat).
The insights provided by Charlie's mathematics were always in some way crucial to solving the crime.
In the season finale, Megan leaves the team to move back to Washington, D.
C., and Charlie goes head-to-head with Don about a case.
For example, in the episode "In Plain Sight" (2x8), one of the criminals is named Rolle and Charlie's father mentions a meeting with a man named Robert Peterson.
