The episode began with Fernando Vera (Elliot Villar) realizing who the anonymous tip about him had come from and decided to put a plan into motion.
Meanwhile, fscociety managed to clone a key card from one of Steel Mountain’s employees. Once inside, Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek) managed to get their human “exploit,” Bill Harper ( Tom Riis Farrell) to get him a tour of the entire facility. Mobley made a Wikipedia page that painted Elliot as a technological billionaire. Afterwards, in order to get to Wendy, Harper’s supervisor who would allow them to get access to the level two vaults by sending her a text that her pregnant wife was in labor at the hospital. Elliot had to destroy Harper by exploiting his weakness- his loneliness. However, they didn’t get Wendy but Trudy Davis (Lorrie Odom), who had no visible flaws online at all. Thankfully, Mobley (Azhar Khan) managed to get rid of her by sending her a supposed text from her husband saying that he was at the hospital. However, Elliot botched things up by going through the wrong door which only gave him access to the utility stairs to the parking lot. After exiting the door, he came face to face with Tyrell Welleck (Martin Wallstrom), who decided to treat him out to lunch. However, thanks to the knowledge that Tyrell’s weakness was his hubris, Elliot managed to get to the second level Executive Lounge.
Elliot then excused himself to the bathroom. It was after several security guards asked Tyrell to sign his credit card receipt. He realized that he could utilize and clamp the “raspberry pi” to the utility box there. Even though he got it done, he was interrupted at a certain point by Tyrell, who told him that he knew that Elliot had framed Terry Colby.
Meanwhile, Angela Moss (Portia Doubleday) told her boyfriend what she had done, and broke up with him. She then headed to her father’s home in New Jersey, where he insisted she stay. He also insisted on helping her out financially for the time being.
Later that night, Tyrell and his wife (Stephanie Coneliussen) had dinner with the candidate who was being optioned to be the next Chief Technology Officer. He did that so he could position himself to become that man’s right-hand man. It was revealed that the Wellecks would do anything and everything to get what they want.
Back at the fsociety headquarters, even though they had managed to infiltrate Steel Mountain, they couldn’t execute the plan as the Dark Army had backed out all of a sudden. Darlene (Carly Chaiken), who blamed herself, tried to execute the plan, even though it would now be pointless, but Elliot managed to make her see some sense. He then told her to stay the night at his place as she felt miserable about what had happened.
Meanwhile, while unpacking her belongings, Angela discovered a bag full of unpaid Evil Corp medical bills that belonged to her father. She then decided to go for a run and ended up facing a particular street corner.
Back at Elliot’s apartment, Elliot discovered that Shayla (Frankie Shaw) was nowhere to be found and picked up a phone on the floor as it rang.
He then found himself talking to Vera who told him that everything was “aligned perfectly” for him.
