Michael meets Park at the marina as scheduled. She starts spinning a story about how she checked the access logs and they showed nothing, and starts trying to pin it on Spencer's dead friend. Michael interrupts her to say he got a call from Spencer, who he says is ex-NSA. Park doesn't think a loopy plant waterer is up for that, but Michael sells it pretty well. "Nice cover, don't you think?" He says. He pretends to wonder why Spencer wants Park there with him when they meet. Park is secretly not wondering at all.
In a grassy vacant lot below a bridge, Michael and Park meet up with Spencer and Fi, both in suits. As per the script, Spencer accuses Park of everything we know she's done. Except he does it in his usual whiny-nerd voice, so it doesn't really have the impact it otherwise might. So it falls to Michael to help sell it. "You're the leak?" he incredulously asks Park. Spencer demands five million in cash to keep it quiet, and he does go a little off-script: "I know your whole dark plan, and I know you're one of them." After an awkward moment, Fi saves it: "Ms. Park is one of those people who doesn't cover their tracks as well as they think." Good one. She rattles off Park's password and asks if she's changed it yet today. Spencer hands Michael a stack of encrypted e-mails, as well as some printouts he claims are decrypted. Park, not fooled, starts to walk. As this is falling apart, neither Fi nor Michael know what to do, until Spencer yells, "If I'm bluffing, then how do I know that you're setting up a deal to sell another name to the Venezuelans?" That's got her. She and Michael agree to the five million, and leave together. Fi asks Spencer how he came up with Venezuela. Spencer explains about patterns. "Also, I saw a file labeled Caracas when I tried to hack her." Fi is impressed. I think she's with the wrong Michael West_n.
Back at the car, Michael yells at Park about the attempted hit and demands to know the thug's name and address so he can clean this up. She suggests killing the blackmailers instead of paying them, and Michael acts like he's way ahead of her. He tells her he plans to get a copy of Zydeco to plant on their bodies. He also does that thing he does when he's trying to get a mark to go along with him, talking to her like she's an idiot for not having figured out every step of the plan that materialized fully-formed in his head the minute their meeting with Spencer ended. I'm sure it's an effective technique; in certain circumstances, people are probably more likely to agree to stuff they don't fully get than admit they don't get it. Michael explains, "It has to look like Spencer stole the codes and the e-mails from the embassy. If the problem is on the client's side, then we're protected. Stone Kittredge stock doesn't take a hit." She protests some more, but he scares her into going along.
