Linden: "Coworker! You sound as if you are in pain."
Even with Nicole's skewed logic it's interesting, because of course Linden took the warning seriously and tried to warn him, but his phone was acting up in the casino, so it's all just very ironic.
Holder, roughly translated: "I am currently unable to appreciate irony!"
Somehow, Sarah still manages to make it into work. Of course, the first thing on her agenda is yelling at her superior about the conspiracy that he may or may not be involved in. I still want to think it's the latter, but what do I know? I was willing to give Nicole a break until she started smiling that sick smile at the end. I think it's safe to say, though, that Sarah Linden has alienated basically every authority there is, at this point. Will it affect her ability to do her job with such confidence? I mean, what could. Right? I just hope they don't mess up Holder too bad, or fuck up his face. Not because he's beautiful, but because it's literally impossible to imagine one single more problem with his speech.
