The plan works, and they discover that the mole is Dr. Paul Sadowski, played by Tim Thomerson. Paul is a senior scientist at GeneMed and a close associate of David. David is devastated to learn that Paul is involved in the conspiracy, and his involvement puts David's life and the lives of those around him in danger.
