Michael and Fi arrive at a beach club. Because it's her job, Fi complains about Michael's strategy of going after Matheson and asks if there isn't an easier way. "The easiest way to get her off my back is to answer her questions," Michael says. "This way doesn't involve me going to jail." So far. So they park their butts at the bar to watch stuff. "Finding your way into a criminal organization is about observing social dynamics," he VOs. "You start with a target." Michael's sunglasses are focused on Matheson, holding court in a cabana tent and generally acting like an entire tool aisle at Home Depot. "Matheson -- Public Enemy," the subtitles inform us with uncharacteristic vagueness. He bitches at and trips a busboy as Michael says that the goal is to find the right type of person to get you in. "People in the inner circle are usually too tough to go after. Anyone with real power is bound to be cautious. Drivers and bodyguards are easier, but they usually don't have real access. You want someone with enough juice be hungry for more, someone desperate to make a move. In short, you're looking for a frustrated middle manager." Michael seems to have settled on one, an unfortunate mook played by Nicholas Turturro (best known from NYPD Blue) who's currently getting his head smacked by Matheson for talking business at the club. "See, that's your problem, Tommy," Matheson berates his underling. "You don't think." He dismisses Tommy, who gets up with a rueful look and a subtitle that reads, "Tommy -- Aspiring Public Enemy." Fi's glad Michael has a target, because it's time for them to go. They can hear the approaching sirens and everything. She got a call from Sam reporting that Paxson found her car nearby. "If Mr. Personality here sees you with Paxson..." she says. "It'll be almost as bad as Paxson seeing us with him. Let's go!" Michael says, and they split.
