Harv meets Fi in the hotel bar and hands her a folder. It contains not only the name of the bank that was almost robbed, but also a security log of the building where Jesse used to work, right up until the day Michael got him burned. It clearly shows discrepancies that seem to indicate that someone else had a copy of Jesse's security card, although apparently that's not enough to get Jesse his job back. But Harv advises Fi to get a hold of the security footage, and she'll find out who did this to Jesse. As soon as he leaves, Fi crumples the sheet in her hand. But doesn't she want to know who burned Jesse?
At the loft, Jesse, Michael, and Fi are going over photos from the bank in question, which looks like a juicy lead. Jesse invites them to go scope out the bank, but they beg off for tonight. Sensing a weird vibe, Jesse heads out. They can always research failed bank jobs tomorrow.
The minute he's gone, Fi smacks Michael in the face as hard as she can. But it's not foreplay this time; she's pissed about having to destroy evidence that would have cleared Jesse. Michael thanks her for that, and when she takes another swing at him, he stops her and says this is bigger than any one person. Because, you know, they're still trying to find some shadowy figure who's starting wars all over the globe. Is even Vaughn interested in that project any more? Fi accuses Michael of turning into someone else -- someone who cares more about the "idea of people" than the actual people who have his actual back every day. Michael says she knows better. Fi says she used to, and stomps out. Probably not for good, alas.
