Kale enters Spangler's office, interrupting him from reading a report. Sounding annoyed, Kale asks Spangler if he's "sure" that David's "loose ends have been neatly tied up." "You know something I don't?" Spangler says, answering a question with a question like everyone else on this show. Except for Will, who answers most questions by staring off into space with his mouth half-open. "I do not," Kale says. "Yes. Loose ends have been nicely tied up," Spangler says. Well, he didn't ask for "nicely," Spangler. He said "neatly." With that, Spangler asks Kale if all of his team leaders are set to make an appearance at Spangler's wife's charity function, along with Kale himself. "I wouldn't miss it for the world," Kale says. "Miriam will be pleased," Spangler says. "Forgive her. After all, she has to put up with me." Yes, which is why I'm sure she's thrilled to bits at the prospect of a whole bunch of Spangler-esque API social outcasts hanging out at her house. "Yes," Kale says, and I think I see a hint of an eye-roll as he leaves the room. Spangler goes back to his report, and places the title page in the paper shredder. We see that it's the missing White Paper. Yes, those White Papers are so important that they're easily purloined from their secret library and then shredded and thus destroyed completely with a simple 5-page capacity shredder from Staples.
Tanya presents her argument for why they should focus solely on Beck to the team. While Will sits at the far end of the table and barely pays attention, Grant and Miles harshly pick Tanya's points apart, even though she's peppering them with impressive big words like "equation" and "linchpin." Tanya looks to Will for some support, but it is not forthcoming. Grant and Miles continue to interrupt until Tanya asks Will if she should even bother to finish. "Strip down your argument to the basics. Build out from there," Will says. And then he makes her start her presentation over again from the beginning, much to Grant's dismay.
