Addy's in her office, reading a file and bouncing on a balance ball for no reason other than to fall off a moment later when Hart walks in and surprises her. Blah, blah, she has weak core muscles, blah. Moving on. Hart has an assignment for her that requires the utmost discretion. It's about Katie the paralegal, who Addy thinks was merely promoted. Hart explains it was after she had an affair with Cliff. Addy is aghast. Hart wants Addy to interview Cliff in order to guard the firm against potential litigation. Addy looks like she'd rather swallow that balance ball, but she forces a smile.
Mal interviews Doug Shea, the train engineer. He says he must have dozed off. The next thing he knew, the train crashed. He admitted to taking his son's ADHD meds because he'd been working two weeks straight. Why didn't he just take a day off? With all the recent layoffs, Doug says, the company told the remaining employees to "pick up the slack or else." Not in so many words, mind you, but it was understood. Doug wasn't the only employee taking drugs. He begs for help, offers to make whatever restitution he can, but he's all his son's got. Mal promises to do his best. Meanwhile, Addy's in the elevator with Rowdy, who apparently still has no legal work to speak of. She asks him for help when it comes to talking to someone scary. He knows she's talking about Cliff, because he knows everything. They walk out of the elevator together. Addy fears she won't be able to do it, but Rowdy cheers her on. "You're smart, you're capable, and you're too little to hit." They appear to be roughly the same size, by the way, which may be how Rowdy has kept his job despite not doing much work. Addy says she plans to bake a cake for Cliff, possibly with sprinkles. Rowdy obviously thinks this is a ridiculous plan but wishes her luck.
Back at the courthouse, Hannah's victory is short-lived. As she walks out of the courtroom with her lawyers, the university's lawyer slaps her with the bad news. Now that her scholarship's been reinstated, she has to submit to the school's demand for a gender verification test. Dylan to the lawyer: "Why are you pressing this?" The lawyer says it's a sponsored scholarship, intended for a woman. Hannah's "status" tarnishes the sports program. She either submits to the test or forfeits her scholarship. "It's nothing personal," the lawyer says. Beth and Dylan gape at him. Elsewhere in the legal heart of the city, Malcolm is meeting with assistant D.A, Rachel Esposito to talk about Doug Shea. He tries his best to charm Rachel into a plea deal, but she doesn't take the bait. She doesn't want her name associated with some "sweetheart deal." Malcolm wonders if she's just concerned about her image. The people want justice, she says, and she represents the people. Sad Malcolm.
