When we last left Drake tenant Annie Morgan, she was being tortured by a man named Kandinsky. This happens to be the evil assassin she made up for a newspaper article. The notion that he is a product of Annie’s imagination doesn’t really fly with Kandinsky. He threatens to cut out the young journalist’s eye unless she coughs up a name. Annie lies by saying her editor is the source. Kandinsky heads off to check out her story. If she’s lying, he’ll cut out both her eyes.
Gavin is under investigation for having inside information of several land deals. Henry’s boss, Commissioner Pike, along with the A.D.A, want him to dig up incriminating files on Gavin. If he doesn’t play ball, they’ll destroy him. Gavin assures Henry that there’s nothing to worry about regarding the investigation. He says that Pike is just using him and the guy has been lining his pockets with developers’ dollars for years. Henry catches sight of the “Greenpoint Towers” development deal on Gavin’s laptop. He’s formulating a plan in his head. For the first time since they met, Henry and Gavin seem to be at odds with each other.
Annie manages to escape from her apartment, but is too late to save her boss. The guy is dead in an alley. Kandinsky calls Annie to let her know that she’s next. Gavin assures Annie that he can make this bad man go away. He’ll need her to write one final article first. It’ll be a piece about the corrupt city planning commissioner. He assures her that no innocent lives will be lost and Kandinsky will never bother her again.
Henry sneaks into the Doran penthouse. He uploads the Greenpoint Towers file onto a flash drive. He also swipes a file on him and Jane. Henry sneaks out the fire escape when Olivia comes home, but quickly realizes he left the cap to flash drive on Gavin’s desk. This has him truly concerned in the hours before big party at the mayor’s house. Everyone who is anyone will be there including both Gavin and his boss, Pike.
Jane is trying to crack the combination lock on the suitcase she found in the basement. What she doesn’t know is that the case is turning to the correct digits on its own whenever she’s not around. She sees the little girl again who wants her to be quiet so “he” doesn’t hear her. She looks over at the suitcase after saying this. Then she’s gone. A freaked out Jane puts the suitcase on a closet shelf.
