Patty is working late again. And oh, look, they have personalized Redwell folders with Hewes & Associates stamped on them. That is a nice touch. Uncle Pete comes in and tells Patty that he checked out the plaintiff in the infant mortality case. Everything Ellen said was true. Patty is relieved that Ellen is in the clear. Uncle Pete stops her. The plaintiff that came into the law firm was African American, but they have a picture of the real Monique Bryant. And she's white. Patty looks grim as she answers her phone. It's Ellen. Patty goes to meet Ellen somewhere. Her hotel room? Wherever it is it is somewhere that the FBI has bugged. Ellen tells Patty that she was approached by the FBI last night and they want her to inform on Patty. They have pictures of her leaving the office the night of Ray Fiske's suicide. Ellen reminds Patty that they never told the police that she was there that night. Patty takes a drink of scotch or whiskey or the refined blood of virgins. (Hey whatever keeps you young!) Ellen says that she told the FBI to go screw themselves because nothing they had was going to stick. Ellen goes on that she thinks the infant mortality case was a set up and that someone else in the office could be approached and turned against her. Patty is quiet during Ellen's speech and you can tell she is thinking, processing, and assessing. She wants to trust Ellen, but she really doesn't. Great acting on Glenn Close's part. You really feel her struggling. Needless to say the Feds are listening and they are pissed that Ellen went rogue. As she tries to justify diverging from the script, she claims that the only way to get Patty to trust her is to fake confide in her. Now that Patty trusts her (maybe) they can proceed. The agent who is not Mario Van Peebles does his typical freak out cursing shenanigans while MVP, cool as ever, sits in the car listening to Ellen's story. He thinks she may be on to something. Then he bitch slaps his partner, just 'cause he can. Well, he should have.
