Silas cooks breakfast for his family while Michelle argues with him about the Port Prosperity handover plan. Silas downplays the public reaction, but Michelle wants him to go to the forum to show he cares. Silas gets pissed off and says that the people can't always get what they want, and being there would only make the situation worse. So he sent his "best man," and somehow Michelle doesn't know who that would be. Cut to David arriving at the forum with his brother Ethan, who's all anti-Silas, and clearly David hasn't told him that he will be supporting the plan publicly. That should go well.
Michelle finds Jack sitting alone and she steals his breakfast since she stomped on out of the kitchen after her father wouldn't listen to her. Jack indicates that he doesn't think what Silas is doing is right either, but he also didn't want to miss out on a good meal. Pragmatic, that Jack. Got to keep up his strength for his next gay rager. Michelle shows her brother the newspaper, which has photos of people burning posters of Silas in effigy. Jack encourages Michelle to continue criticizing their father. I should have realized at this point that Silas had something going on behind the scenes; haven't we learned that a photo doesn't get into the newspaper unless he approves it first?
