At 2:33:23, Dana enters Hastings' office to report that Cole checked in and is on his way. Hastings rudely interrupts her to ask Cole's ETA, and she says under ten minutes. Hastings dismisses her, but she stupidly wants to talk some more right now, because wouldn't it be awesome if he asked her where she was now that they're in the privacy of his office? She apologizes again, saying she knows she let him down. "Yes, you did," he says, looking at her for the first time since she walked in. Hastings wonders if he was wrong about the awesomeness he saw in her before (I clearly was). He says that he doesn't want to lose her or Cole. "You're both valuable and everyone is replaceable." Dana says that she and Cole are both ready to accept the consequences for their screw-up. Hastings nods like they're coming to an understanding. Wouldn't this be an awful time for her personal cell phone to ring? Of course, it does. She thanks Hastings and ducks out of the room, answering it at 2:34:37 as he watches her go.
"Can I ask who I'm speaking with?" asks the voice of Jimmy James. Yes, it's literally Stephen Root, calling from his car. Dana unwisely tells the caller her name -- Dana, not Jenny. "Forgive me, Ms. Walsh, for calling at this ungodly hour," he mugs. He says he expected to leave a message and apologizes for waking her. Dana politely asks what this is about, and the caller identifies himself as a guy named Prady, from the Department of Corrections in Little Rock. And he's looking for Kevin Wade. Ooh, just what Dana needs right now. Walking down the hall so Hastings doesn't see her on the phone, Dana lies that she doesn't know Kevin. Which is as stupid as anything she's done, because obviously Prady found her number somehow. The thing to do would have been to go back to the old story she tried on Kevin, which was that he had mistaken her for someone else and was bothering the wrong person. I mean, it didn't work on Kevin, but he knew Jenny Scott, unlike Prady. She might have been able to get rid of him easily. But now Prady's folksy, down-home antenna are activated, because he knows, and he tells Dana, that Kevin called her number from a motel room in Queens. Dana tries to blow it off as a wrong number, and Prady doesn't buy that either, given the number and length of some of the calls. Dana tries to rush him off the phone, using her work crisis as a pretext. Prady gets that, "But since we're both awake, I wonder if I could meet with you in person." Now, in fact. Prady says it won't take long, and when Dana seems less than enthusiastic, Prady offers, still in that mildly demented southern gentleman manner, "If it'll smooth things over, I can call your supervisor." Dana jumps all over saying he doesn't need to do that, and can spare him a few minutes. "Thank you, ma'am, that would be super," Prady says, and pulls over to get Dana's address.
