He calls her on her cell phone and when Carly answers the phone Craig takes it away from her. Craig says nothing and Jack says nothing. Jack realizes that Craig has the phone and hangs up. Craig hangs up the phone and corners Carly. He asks Carly what is she up to? Is she betraying him? She tells him she doesn't know what he's talking about. He starts to touch her jacket and she pushes his hand away. She walks away from him so he doesn't know she has a wire under her jacket. Out in the van, Jack realizes she is in trouble. Jack tells Hal that he has to go inside and help her. Hal tries to stop Jack, but he can't catch him. Jack runs into the hotel and tries to get on the elevator but misses it.

Craig tells them that they will leave in a minute, when they are decent. Carly says that she is as decent as she is going to get, but it will take a minute for him and points at Craig.

He tells her that he can't be too careful. This deal is his whole life. She says that she understands and it holds a lot for her. She starts toward the door and Craig asks her where is she going?

The nerdy guy drops the chips in a small hand-held machine and Carly puts her hand on the machine and stops him. She tells Cindy that she has seen the chips, now they need to see the money. Cindy motions to the other guy, who is a big brawny guy and he brings over a briefcase and puts it on the table and opens it up. It is full of money. Carly starts to touch the money and Cindy slams the lid on her. She motions for the nerdy guy to continue. He pushes some buttons and then he tells Cindy that the chips are fake.

Carly asks Mei-Lin if this is another one of Craig's loyalty test? Mei-Lin shakes her head no. Mei-Lin tells Cindy that Craig thinks these chips are real. Cindy looks at the big brawny guy and tells him to destroy them. Carly starts to beg for her life. Cindy laughs and says, "Oh, you thought I meant you? I am talking about the chips."

Just as Simon was about to tell Katie that he wanted out of their marriage, she informed him that she was pregnant.
