Man from the 90s and his stupid hat and, oh look, a hoodie, isn't that apt, sits in a car waiting. The car door opens and Wes joins him. Man from the 90s hands Wes a series of prints showing Ellen meeting with some guys in suits. Man from the 90s thinks lawyers, but Wes is going with the idea that they are Feds. Wes looks concerned.
Patty barrels into the energy regulator's office demanding to know why UNR's merger was approved. He tries to defend his actions saying that he went out on a limb, but there were no substantiated claims. She barks, "Bullshit!" And looks so scary that you remember she was a bunny boiler at one point. The energy regulator reminds her that there was a report by an independent environmental consultant (read: Daniel Purcell) who claimed it was all good. Patty leans over his desk and reminds him that he is talking to Patty Hewes and he knows that the report is a lie. He reminds her that there is no evidence and his hands are tied. She challenges him to a staring contest. She totally wins, turns on her heel, and marches out of the office. Gah. You know there is no way that Walter Kendrick, the one-man evil empire, is going to get the best of Patty Hewes, but he really has her in a corner right now.
Walter Kendrick and Daniel Purcell meet on a rooftop in Manhattan to admire the view. Kendrick is through-and-through evil so he is also smoking. Only bad people get to smoke on television these days. Kendrick gloats that the merger is going through. Purcell congratulates him. Kendrick tells him that loyalty goes a long way with him and he sees a bright future for Purcell. Purcell doesn't care about his future, but he does care about his daughter's future. Kendrick swears that Purcell's concerns are his concerns. Purcell asks if now that the merger is through Kendrick is going to live up to his promise to clean up West Virginia and stop using Aricite. Kendrick slaps him on the back and swears it is already done. Once again, pants not catching on fire. He then offers Purcell a job as head of research to oversee the switch to alternative energy. Ah that is so nice that they are going green! They aren't evil at all! Kendrick slaps Purcell on the back again and tells him that whatever happened in the house that night with his wife, it's over. He played ball and they all won. Purcell just looks at him and steps away, leaving Kendrick alone on the rooftop so God can smite him.
