Claire does what any sane person would do in such a situation: run to Patty Hewes. Patty happily receives Claire Maddox and all her insight. The two tough cookies sit on the couch in Patty's office, sipping scotch, while Claire tells her that everything she suspects of Walter Kendrick is true. But nothing Claire can tell her will be useful, because it is privileged. Obviously that was for us, the viewing audience, because Patty knows attorney-client privilege quite well, thank you. Kendrick plays dirty and it will take someone like Patty Hewes to bring him down. Claire has watched her career and while she doesn't approve of the way Patty does business, she gets it. Now Patty has to use her powers for good and get Walter Kendrick. Claire adds that she was as surprised as Patty that Daniel Purcell flipped on the stand. She knows Patty doesn't trust him, but she should. He really wants to do the right thing. Now. Hmm, I think there is a multi-million dollar offshore bank account that says differently, Claire. Patty watches Claire as she puts down her drink and leaves the office. I really hope Claire wasn't brought down that easily. I really hope there is something else cooking for her.
Ellen and Katie eat dinner together and Ellen tells her that she is done relying on Patty. She hired her own investigator. Further discussion is put on hold when a breathless Tom calls and tells Ellen to turn on the news. The news is filled with pictures of Phil the Philanderer Grey shoving cameras out of his way as the newscaster gleefully announces that Phil had to withdraw his nomination for Energy Secretary after a series of pictures surfaced revealing his extramarital affair. Katie and Ellen gawp at the screen. Katie asks Ellen if she leaked the pictures and Ellen denies it. Patty must have done it herself.
