...and then she walks into the library and meets the author -- Nish. Nice. Nish tells her that Hearst's founder was a Skull and Bones member at Yale. He started The Castle, modeled after Skull and Bones, at Stanford, where his son went, and at Hearst. So even if Veronica hadn't blown the Kane Scholarship, she still might have ended up a YouTube feature. She goes on that being in The Castle is a ticket to wealth, power, and privilege. "They're treated like rock stars." Ooh, maybe Piz can interview them! Although, given the circumstances, that might be a little awkward. Nish says that her women aren't happy about the society. That is indeed a shift in tone. She adds that they would have sued for admission if they could have figured out who to bother. "No one knows who the members are."
At night, Wallace is waiting in an empty parking lot when a guy wearing all black, including a ski mask, drives up. You'd wonder what the guy would say were a cop to pull him over, but given The Castle's influence, I'm guessing that's not going to happen. Wallace, seemingly by prior arrangement, gets in the trunk. However, Veronica is hiding in her car nearby, and she takes off in pursuit.
