Back at the gallery, Michael tells Chandler that his spy might have been picked up by security cameras in the parking ramp. He also wants to give Chandler's office a bug sweep to see if there's anything else in there. Chandler lets Michael into his office to check it out and takes off, leaving a guy he just met that day alone in his inner sanctum. It's hard to believe such a conscientious fellow could be the victim of a spy.
Alone in the client's office, Michael waves a frequency scanner around like a divining rod, hoping to find another bug. The image goes all staticky for a minute, which I hope is not how a real frequency scanner works. It looks uncomfortable. Michael tracks it to Chandler's computer keyboard, which he then opens up while VOing about the "wireless key logger circuit" he's found which transmits passwords. The problem with all surveillance devices, he says, is that they break. "More spies get caught changing batteries and fixing wires than any other single activity." I'd be interested in reading that study. Michael calls Chandler on his cell phone and tells him, "I'm going to need to work late tonight." Does he get time and a half?
That night, after the cleaning crew has left, someone with a flashlight walks into Chandler's darkened office and goes straight to his desk. Michael hits the light, to reveal the gallery's receptionist. "Hi, Miles Parker!" she doesn't chirp this time. She starts to make an excuse, then makes a run for it, then makes a stab at Michael with a letter opener. He thwarts all of these attempts, of course, and she begs him not to tell Chandler. "He'll kill me." "That sounds a little hardcore for an art dealer," Michael scoffs. She doesn't think so: "He killed my father." Prepare to die!
Michael has called Sam over to Carlito's for an emergency meeting with him and the receptionist, whose name is Melanie. She tells them her father was J.D. Blake, a name that means nothing to Michael but impresses Sam, thanks to his ex Veronica. "You know, you could stand getting out to a few museums every once in a while, Mike," he lectures. Melanie says that Chandler used to be her father's art dealer, and was pressuring him to finish up a multimillion-dollar painting called "Lady in White" even as his health was declining. Her dad got sick of Chandler's whining and decided to change dealers (depriving Chandler of a huge commission, as Sam points out), and a month later someone broke into his loft, beat him to death, and burned down his studio. "Lady in White" was reported destroyed. She's sure it was Chandler. "And he never put it together that you're J.D. Blake's daughter?" Michael asks. She says she never actually met her father in person, and just came down to get a job with Chandler after hearing that "Lady in White" was being moved on the black market. She doesn't explain how she knows from the black market. Michael warns her that he's going to have to check the footage from the security cameras on the entrance she used. She starts to stress out, but Michael assures her he'll take care of it. "If your story checks out," he caveats.
