Back to Parabola Towers. Outside, Michael accosts Park and tells her to be cool. She goes him one better, coldly telling him she knows he isn't who he said he was two days ago, and asking who he really is. "The people we both work for don't know my name and neither will you," Michael spits. "I'm the guy cleaning up your mess. That's all you get." He says he was "shaking the tree" before. As though he doesn't realize she knows exactly what's going on, he tells her that he's looking for a leak, Zydeco has been compromised, he says, and three American spies are already dead as a result. Except because he's pretending he doesn't know she's behind it all, all he can threaten her with is a big hit to the value of her stock options if this gets out. When she's unimpressed, he whips out a printout of one of her e-mails. Now he's got her attention, to the point where she clears her calendar for him for the day. You know, Shannon, if you were going make this unbreakable code and then use it to sell secrets, maybe you should have made the code a little less unbreakable so as to allow for the possibility of other suspects when spies started dying.
Michael takes her out to the marina, and leads her to a boat at a slip (we'll later learn [in case we haven't already figured it out (which we have)] that it belongs to Sam's friend Virgil). But Michael tells Park it belongs to Spencer's friend, the guy Park had blown up (again, as though he doesn't know she was behind it), and pulls a stack of more Zydeco printouts from a locker. These even have notes scribbled in the margins, which of course Michael wrote himself, but Park doesn't know that, so she's really more curious than she'd like to let on about what they say. Michael claims all he could tell from the notes is that the dead guy wanted to see the SCIF access logs, so now he does, too. She refuses, but Michael insists: they'll meet there tomorrow at 10:00 and go from there to Parabola Towers, which will be empty on a Saturday. And then he hands her a cell phone. "Cell phones are basically wireless computers," he VOs. "What is this?" Park demands. It's basically a wireless computer, Park. Pay attention. The VO adds, "Upload the right program, and you've got a roving bug you can turn on remotely." Michael tells her to keep it on her and use it if she needs to contact him. "The last person who looked into this leak was killed. You never know who's listening," he warns her darkly, and leaves her standing on the dock, presumably to walk home.
