A postcard of Madrid morphs into a frame of our next scene. The Undercovers roll up in a shiny Mercedes. They check out Leo's safe house, going through every possible cabinet and document. They turn up a receipt from the day before he disappeared. It points them to Cafe Central. Sounds... central.
Staked out at the cafe: Ridiculous hat for Steven and aviator shades for Sam. These guys are good. They look around, discussing where they could find their best source of video surveillance for the area. They agree it would be from an ATM at an adjacent bank. A guy wanders into frame to ask in Spanish if they want a rose for Samantha. Steven waves him off, but the guy kneels down into frame with the most ridiculous thin fake moustache. "I'm not Spanish. At all. Except maybe a little on my mom's side. I'm Hoyt. Bill Hoyt. I'm your contact agent." And just like that we have our annoying sycophantic comic relief character. At least he's self-aware, though. "And I know I can be more sycophantic later, but what an absolute thrill it is to be working with you, Mr. Bloom!" Great. He goes on and on about how much he idolizes Steven and studied his file in training, going as far as to call Mr. Bloom a legend. Bill starts asking Steven about "the Senegal incident" in a very locker room tone of voice and Steven is obviously uncomfortable talking about this in front of Sam. Undercover Brother cuts Bill off to tell him he needs intel on the bank. Bill is on it. He just hopes he lives up to Steven's incredible standard. His words. He hands the rose he was carrying to Steven and leaves, but not before turning to Samantha and saying, "Nice to meet you, too," as an afterthought. Samantha's amused and curious about the Senegal incident, but irritated Steven wasn't going to buy her a rose. He hands her the rose. "Do you feel like breaking into a bank with me?"
Tardy title card. Like, seriously... We're fifteen minutes in. A montage of Bloom espionage plays within a giant CGI wedding ring, which becomes the capital "C" in "UnderCovers." Yup. Commercials follow.
In the bank, and in Spanish (including a nice touch of Spaniard lisp accents) the Undercovers try to convince the concierge that they are there to upgrade the security system. Sam blames the disconnect on fictional airhead Belicia and insists the guy can check with the central office. His call is intercepted by Bill who actually speaks pretty decent Spanish. He also blames Belicia and name-drops a guy named Mr. Torres, which strikes a chord with the manager. He shows the Blooms to the security server room. When he leaves them alone, they immediately hop to and crack into the video surveillance system to find the ATM camera. Just then, Mr. Torres happens to call the manager, who diligently informs his boss that the security upgrade is being taken care of. Security upgrade? What security upgrade!? We watch Bill eavesdrop in his surveillance Smart Car (seriously) with his mouth agape and eyes filled with terror. He immediately dials the Blooms. Meanwhile the manager guy is sprinting to the server room as the Undercovers begin recording a clip of Leo Nash making a transaction at the cafe. Sam answers the call from Bill telling them to get out of there. Just then, the manager opens the door to find... an empty server room. And we find ourselves watching a very Mentos-esque slow-motion escape of Steven and Samantha running through a very sunny back-alley with huge Colgate smiles plastered on their faces. The whole thing is so full of glee, I can't wait to buy Lea Michele's take on this scene on iTunes.
