So the seller comes strolling into the lobby with his bodyguards, and Olivia gets up with her steel briefcase to go greet him, Charlie unnecessarily telling her to be careful. "You're Gavin. Susan. I used to work with Anderson," says Olivia, holding out her hand to the guy. He stands there looking at her for a few seconds before shaking it and saying he was expecting someone else. Olivia tells him what Hicks told her to about Ernesto. Not taking his eyes off Olivia, Gavin points at Peter and says, "Who's he?" Olivia indicates Gavin's thugs and says, "Who are they?" at which point I'm surprised Gavin didn't crack up laughing at Olivia trying to pass Peter off as some kind of security. Gavin says they'll sweep her and get to business, so they walk off to the elevator.
In the hotel room, one of Gavin's thugs waves an electronics/metal detector or whatever over Olivia's body, with Gavin staring at her. There's a tense moment when the thing starts to go haywire near Olivia's left ear, so she brushes her hair aside to indicate her long dangly earring. "She's clean," he says, instead of saying, "Hey, why didn't this thing go off near her OTHER ear too?" Gavin asks for the money and Peter hands over the briefcase. Gavin opens it to see bundles of currency I'm not familiar with, and hands it over to one of his men for counting, which he assures Olivia is just a formality. The goon runsthe bills through one of those money shuffling counter things, and Gavin asks Peter if they've met before: "You look familiar. Did you work with Anderson too?" Peter considers this while Hicks tells Olivia that they're testing her: "You tell him Peter met Anderson at New College at Oxford." That's what Olivia says, adding, for effect, "Isn't that right?" And Peter has to get all gruff with, "What does it matter to you where I met anyone?" like now Peter is ACTIVELY trying to get the two of them killed. Gavin asks if they met on campus. Hicks tells Olivia that he doesn't know the answer, and Peter has to think about it for an awful long time while Gavin stares at him, and Peter finally says, "We met at the White Horse. On Wheatly Road. You know it?" and Gavin says he doesn't recall, and Peter says he would, because the Thai food is fantastic, and blah blah blah, and offering to describe what each of them was wearing was a bit much. One of the FBI agents in the surveillance room is all, "Where the hell did he come up with that?" and Charlie all gloomily says he has no idea, probably thinking about adding a chapter to the FBI agents' handbook: "How To Get Killed Undercover: The Peter Bishop Case Study."
