When Michael and Fi return to the courtyard, he's clearly in a bit of a mood. Apparently his feelings are hurt, since he disappeared and then came back to find the two of them acting like nothing happened. Fi socks him in the face -- and we all knew it was only a matter of time before that happened -- and says they kicked in every door they could find. "We took a client out of respect for you," she claims. Then she kisses him properly and welcomes him home. I'm sure Michael missed his bipolar girlfriend desperately. "I don't know whether I should be more concerned about where you were or why you're back," Fi says. So Michael explains about the thing with Vaughn and Simon and the war-for-hire thing he's looking into, which totally pisses her off. Yep, here they go again.
Inside the loft, Sam and Winston bring Michael up to speed on the Breakers. All Sam knows about them is that the top boss of the whole gang is someone named Big Ed. "Apparently he's quite large." Michael says they'll need to talk to him to call off the hit, saying they'll just need to make it worth the Breakers' while to do so. After Winston gets the official "Winston -- The Client" subtitle, Michael says, "Call Barry."
At the Carlito, Barry is explaining how biker gangs work -- they own everything that belongs to the bikers, apparently, which I guess makes it easy for Barry to fake stuff. Michael wants to go with the option where it looks like Winston was doing gunrunning for them, so that if he dies, the FBI will have an opening to investigate the Breakers. All they need to do to get the info Barry needs is break into the office above the bar where the Breakers hang out. And how hard could that be?
Not hard, I guess, because they're giving that job to Fi. She walks into the raucous place wearing an amount of eyeliner equal in mass to her leather chaps, and as Michael VOs about how infiltrating a violent culture flooded with testosterone is a lot easier if you're an attractive woman, a big biker named Earl chats her up and offers to introduce her to Big Ed, who's macking on some chick over a pool table. Fi listens in on a conversation about Winston and how he "punked" the Breakers between Hunter and Big Ed, who threatens, "I don't care what he's packing, the next guy that steps between you and that lawyer gets a bullet in the face." Here are the subtitles: "Big Ed -- Big Problem." Earl offers to buy Fi a drink, and she nods, but dashes up the stairs instead of waiting around for him to bring it to her. Smooth, that -- waiting to sneak off until someone's expecting her to be there. He follows her up to the office and busts her, but she plays it off by acting slutty and asking, "Want to see what I brought to play with?" That would be her trusty taser, with which she zaps him unconscious. While he snoozes on the floor, conveniently blocking the door with his inert bulk, Fi grabs some papers from a file cabinet and goes over them with a pocket scanner, because as Michael VOs, digital cameras suck for taking clear pictures of documents. By now another biker is outside the door trying to get in, and Fi finishes up and sneaks out just in time -- through a hole she makes in the wall by pulling out a 12-inch ventilation fan. I'm not even making that up.
