Furious at the IMF’s failure to secure the plutonium, CIA Director Erica Sloane instructs Special Activities Division operative August Walker to shadow Ethan as he attempts to retrieve the plutonium. Ethan and Walker infiltrate a party in Paris where Lark is believed to be buying the cores from an arms dealer known as White Widow. They track a man whom they suspect to be Lark but he is killed when Ilsa Faust intervenes just as he is about to kill Hunt. Ethan impersonates Lark and warns the White Widow that assassins are trying to kill her. Walker passes doctored evidence on to Sloane suggesting that Hunt has always been Lark and the man killed by Ilsa was a decoy.
To secure the plutonium, White Widow tasks Ethan with extracting Lane from an armoured convoy moving through Paris. She provides one of the plutonium cores as a payment in kind for the mission. Ethan and Walker attack the convoy and lead the police and the White Widow’s men on a chase across Paris while Benji and Luther secure Lane. Ilsa reappears and attempts to kill Lane to prove her loyalty to MI6. The mission to extract Lane is successful and White Widow instructs the team to deliver Lane to London.
