It's 9:55:25, and Kiefer is just about done transferring the money. When it happens, there's a confirmation screen on the laptop, and Lugo gets a text message on his phone. On cue, the other three goons draw their weapons behind Kiefer's back. "Thank you, Mr. Meier," Lugo smugs, and three shots ring out. Down go Vladimir's three non-speaking goons. That's the work of Cole, on a nearby rooftop, proving himself to be pretty handy with a sniper rifle. Meanwhile, Kiefer knees Lugo, bounces him against the side of his car, and has him down on the pavement with a gun of his own pointed down at him. He makes Lugo throw his gun away. But has Kiefer blown his cover? Not so much. "Do you really think I'm that stupid? That I'd come here alone?" He orders Lugo to call his boss. Without getting up, Lugo starts dialing, and Kiefer snatches the phone away from him.
Vladimir answers, asking, "Is Meier dead?" Kiefer answers, "Not exactly, but I've just taken out three of your men. And I'm ready to take out the fourth." Vladimir at least has the grace to look embarrassed. Kiefer bitches at him, "You really think you could roll me for five million dollars? Where's Renee?" Abashed, Vladimir lets them talk this time. "Meier, are you okay?" Walker asks. Snatching the phone back, Vladimir says he's ready to reconsider, now that the people he was scared to deal with five minutes ago have proven even more dangerous than he thought. "The only thing you should consider yourself is lucky," Kiefer non sequiturs. "And I still want this deal to happen, otherwise you'd be dead." After Kiefer issues a few threats, Vladimir asks to talk to Lugo, and Kiefer tosses the phone onto Lugo's belly. Good thing it's not a Droid or it'd knock the wind out of him. "Bring him back here," Vladimir orders. Kiefer lets Lugo up and has him get in the driver's seat of the car. As if Lugo hasn't had enough of Germen engineering already.
Meanwhile, in other splitscreen windows, Kevin and Nick are headed to the evidence vault, locked and loaded. Dana is probably wishing she had just let Kevin blow her cover; Arlo glances around creepily; and Josef sits on the edge of Oleg's bed, back in his sickroom in the back of the restaurant.
