Counterfeit Reality is the seventh episode of the first season. It was released on March 11 2005.


When FBI agent Don Eppes finds several murders are linked to counterfeiting, his mathematical genius brother Charlie uses his skills to do what other investigating methods - as used by Agent Kim Hall, Don's colleague and his ex from his Albuquerque days, a blank chapter in his past for Charlie - failed to, locate the forging and identify who did the graphical artwork required for these old-fashioned, relatively hard to detect fakes with real printing presses and watermark, not computer printing: it's a missing artist, who must have been kidnapped and will probably be murdered as a liability for the counterfeiters...


This refers to the layers, levels, and plausibility of the con, as well as the simple issue of credible but fake money.
