At the reception before the auction, Sam talks to an older couple. The man in the couple keeps staring obviously at Samantha's cleavage. If this were a cartoon, his eyes would be bugging out of his head and his tongue would be unraveling onto the ground. When Sam sees that Clive has gathered his intel, she offers her business card to the couple, intentionally dropping it so she can spike the man's drink with Flurazepam. When the guy finishes his drink, he has a mild heart scare, which causes enough of a scene to move security from the entrance to the main building. While everyone freaks out, Steven scrambles surveillance so Sam and Clive can get in.
As Samantha and Clive make their way into the building, Clive starts asking Sam if she really knows nothing about Steven's life. They make their way into the director's office and sit behind her desk as they hack into her iMac. Clive claims Steven was bounced out of CIA training. Hoyt overhears this and starts defending his idol to his love, Tessa, which prompts Steven to ask what the conversation is about. He demands of Hoyt access to Sam and Clive's channel and Hoyt dutifully obliges. Steven overhears Samantha asking questions about Clive's claim and butts in to the conversation. Everyone's eyes go wide, Hoyt freaks and tries to switch back to exclusive channels, but accidentally taps them all into the perimeter security channel. The guards all go on alert and head to the surveillance room. The video feed for the office is the only one down so they know the disturbance must be in there. Naturally, the guards arrive in time for an empty office. Sam and Clive are hiding in an air vent in the floor.
Steven comes to get Clive and Sam out of the vent... well, Sam at least. Clive gets left behind so Sam and Steven can argue about what was going on with that conversation. Steven digs into Samantha for buying into Clive's agenda and going back on their agreement to not ask questions about each other's past. In the process, Steven lets it slip that he ordered Hoyt to let him in on their comm channel, which lets Sam know Steven didn't trust her. Clive catches up with the Blooms and suggests Sam tell Steven something about her past to even up the score. Steven walks away and Sam gives Clive a dirty look.
