So that's what he does. Michael goes to Chandler's house, pretending to be all upset because someone broke into his house. Or Miles Parker's house, more accurately, which doesn't actually exist. Chandler freaks out about whether any of his info was taken, but Michael assures him it's safe. He does add that witnesses in the neighborhood saw a man and a woman. Chandler makes the connection to what happened to Orr, and Michael freaks on him for not telling him about this before. "Maybe I'm not being clear: I need to know everything that is going on, because now I'm involved." He acts all worried about what they're up against, and Chandler asks who it could be. "Could be anyone," Michael says. "Some spy gets blacklisted, goes freelance, he could be standing right in front of you and you wouldn't even know it." Cute. [Seriously, is he tryingto throw suspicion on himself? - Z] He tells Chandler that he needs to know what the spy is after, as though he doesn't already know. "It's the only way I can protect you." Chandler denies being anything other than squeaky clean. Michael wants Chandler to let him upgrade everything, which means giving him access to the whole security system. And by this point, he's got Chandler paranoid enough to agree to it.
That night, Sam sits in the car, watching the security camera feeds from the gallery live via laptop. Michael's inside, and as the cameras sweep the room from side to side, Sam directs Michael through the no-coverage windows. This does require them to overcome some confusion regarding Sam's left versus Michael's left. As Michael reaches Chandler's office door, he complains in VO about the difference between a spy and a thief: "A thief gets to take what he wants and run. A spy has to go back to the scene of the crime the next day and act like nothing happened." Once he's in Chandler's paper files, he's not finding anything incriminating. He gets to work with his flashlight, VOing, "When you're a spy, you spend a lot of time looking for people's hiding places. It's always good to start by searching where your target has the easiest access." And if that doesn't work, "You look for signs of moved furniture, marks on the carpet, scuffs on the walls. Anything out of place." By now, Michael has spotted a tiny pile of sand on the carpet, but the sculpture in the little sand-bed is several feet over. Michael moves it aside and discovers a hidden wall panel, which slides open to reveal an armored file cabinet. Since a cutting torch is off the table, as the flame would burn any documents inside, Michael needs a "diamond-tipped drill bit with a cooling system." Well, that doesn't sound like something Michael can build himself. Sam oofs that it'll take a couple of days to get their hands on one. "Let's get on it," Michael says, shutting the panel so he can leave empty-handed.
