Two goons enter a place and sit down across from Jackie Earle Haley, who I will just tell you right now is Guerrero. He's been digging into a bank's records, and they attempt to intimidate him. He's twitchy and bespectacled, and they are not awed by his warning that he'll fight back if it gets violent. Then he clarifies: "I'll take the beating, because that's all you two amateurs are cleared to do. Then one night soon, I'm gonna break into your houses and kill each of you in your sleep. I'll probably start with you, Alfredo. That way Stephen here can have a few extra days with Marla and the girls. It's only fair." The goons are understandably worried by the way Guerrero knows their names, and he explains that their employer's records are nearly secure enough. They leave, and Guerrero's phone rings.
On the train, Tony gets the call from Winston to report that Guerrero is in, and that there are incoming calls from a Times Reporter named Mark Hoffer. The woman has just noticed that Tony stolen her phone. Before the Mark Hoffer thing can get resolved, Tony is on High Alert because someone's approaching. But it's a guy named Bill Arnold, who has been saying things about the project. You know. Things. As he talks, a new drink gets put in front of the woman. But it's in a tall glass, and her previous drink was a short one. Tony stops her from drinking and walks her away from the table while Bill Arnold complains about the rudeness. Then he shrugs and drinks from her glass. Tony just leaves glasses of poison sitting around for anyone who isn't his client to drink? That doesn't seem all that professional to me.
As they walk away, Tony explains that the ice in the new drink was cubed, while all the other ice was crushed. Bill Arnold has trouble breathing and collapses as Tony and the woman move into the next car. A bald waiter looks on ominously.
Now Tony and the woman are alone in a different car. He's confident that the assassin will have to come to them.
A gentleman gets into his car to find that Guerrero is already in the passenger seat. Guerrero needs information on Mark Hoffer from the gentleman, who presumably works at the newspaper. But the gentleman thinks this is a joke. "You saying you don't know?" Know what? We'll find out after Tony finishes receiving the call. Wait ... okay, done. Mark Hoffer was killed this morning by a car bomb. The woman explains that Mark Hoffer wrote a piece a year ago exposing corner-cutting in the train project, which he based on her anonymous tips. After the exposé, the company gave the woman everything she wanted. Tony demands to know what she's hiding. And just then! She hears the brakes squealing, which is apparently not supposed to happen on the maiden voyage of a bullet train. And someone's coming! The woman hides, and Tony grabs the guy. It's the guy with the beard! From earlier! You remember Beardy, right? I assumed he wasn't very important, so I didn't recap the part about him being James's (the woman's husband, remember?) best man at their marriage. And here he is again! Beardy wants to know why Stephanie (Stephanie! Her name's "Stephanie"!) pulled the emergency brake in the last car. Naturally, she didn't, and Tony tells Beardy to take a powder.
