Steven's able to slip into the elevator with Shin and the guards. Hoyt remotely takes control of the elevator as Steven secretly pulls out a stun gun. The elevator halts and the lights go out, giving Steven the opportunity to quickly stun the two guards. Hoyt unlocks the elevator doors so Sam can pull them open. Shin seems to know what's up. "Are you the ones they sent for me?" Steven: "Are you ready to do this?"
In a Geneva hotel room, Hoyt greets Shin with a freshly poured glass of soda as he and the Blooms enter. Hoyt is totally fanboy about this, but Won snubs the offer, which Hoyt sycophantically rationalizes as the soda not even being cold and he already having put his fingers in it. One of these days, Hoyt, bam, zoom, straight to the moon. To illustrate for us that Won has only one thing on his mind, he lets the Blooms know he's ready to lay down his conditions for his defection before they can even bring it up. He wants to be reunited with his daughter. The Undercovers, however, don't have approval to operate in North Korea. He'll only defect and reveal the whereabouts of the device once his daughter is extracted from North Korea. Conundrum!
Video conference with Shaw. He simply won't clear the Blooms to go to North Korea for fear of facilitating a national incident. Hoyt butts in to get some face time (don't sue us, Apple) with Shaw because he really believes Steven can go undetected in North Korea. Because we all know a 6-foot-tall, ridiculously attractive black man wouldn't stick out like a sore thumb in North Korea. Shaw threatens to send Hoyt's ass on assignment to Botswana. Oh please, oh please, oh please, Shaw. Please! The directive handed to Steven and Samantha is simply to convince Shin Won it's in his best interest to cooperate and forget about his daughter as a bargaining point, which we should guess just isn't going to fly with this guy. Steven's idea is to bribe the guy with a nice car or something, because daughters can be replaced by Mercedes. Sam's got a better idea: ignore Shaw's directive. Would've never thought of that. Sam tells Shin they got permission to go get his daughter.
Pyongyang, North Korea postcard. The Blooms stand in line at customs at the airport. They're noticed by some guards and asked to state their business. Sam answers in French that they are food inspectors, but their bags are checked and passports confiscated anyway. Their full story is that they are food inspectors there from Canada by request of Minister Wang. They're granted stay as long as they take a tour guide with them.
