[person whistling.]
♪ [fluorescent bulbs buzzing.]
♪ [whispering.]
Hey, Byron.
You like what you see? Yeah? You wanna get a little closer? Let's get right in there.
Let's get right into this filthy, disgusting, public urinal.
You like that, you sick fuck? Who are you talking to? [normally.]
No one.
No one no one's here.
I know.
That's why I asked.
What's up? Oh, um, just wanted to drop this off to you if you might need it.
I'm sorry Jerry has you doing all the all the "shit work.
" [chuckles.]
Well, I'm happy to do it.
I'll do it all day, every day.
It's my pleasure.
I'll let you do that, then.
Thanks, Jay.
[angelic choir singing.]
♪ You think anyone ever took a big shit in here, you little bitch? ♪ Flowers for me, Herb? These were here.
They were up on the porch.
That's the signal, right? When you want to talk about Hazel? [shushes.]
Come on in.
You're not wearing the habit today, hmm? Well, I'm at home.
Are you wearing makeup? Scone, honey? Listen, Judiff.
Um With our, uh, past history, um, you may have taken me coming to you about Hazel as a signal of something more.
But I just need to remind you that I'm not available like that.
Anyway, California is a two-party consent state.
Viewing and recording Hazel without her permission is illegal.
But that also means his violation of her legalized my surveillance of him.
Catch my drift? Sort of, yeah.
This is where you come in.
I need you to help me lure Byron out of the Hub so we can catch him in the act.
Get his admission on tape.
Mm, yeah, that's that's gonna be tough.
Byron almost never comes out of that Hub.
Billionaire tech mogul Byron Gogol, notorious for being a recluse, was spotted as a man about town in Los Angeles yesterday, and you won't believe where we saw him.
Wow, it's like catching a sighting of Bigfoot.
God, the paparazzi are still outside.
How, how am I supposed to prove I can do things like a regular guy when there are swarms of people watching my every move? - Bennett! - That's the thing, sir.
- You're not a regular guy.
- I [clears throat.]
That being said, here are some photos of you with the headline, "Byron Gogol, regular guy.
" You're in these photos.
I know.
It's kind of cool.
It's an absolute nightmare.
[breathing deeply.]
Where's the Hazel cam? [soft tense music.]
You said you weren't gonna look at it while you're out here.
To achieve the full effect of being normal, you told me not to give it to you under any circumstances.
♪ It's in my room.
♪ [laughs.]
- I'm not gonna watch it, Bennett.
- Oh, good for you, sir.
You're gonna watch it, and you're gonna tell me what she's doing.

Because we - we wouldn't go.

So am I.
I'm so excited just to even get in a car.
[upbeat music fades.]
What is this? Not gonna lie, this was a beast to put together, but we did it! We are ready to rock! [chuckles.]
I got Warpaint to reschedule their show in LA and I wouldn't take no for an answer.
Whoo! Whoo! Whoo-whoo-whoo-whoo! This one's for you, Hazel.

Fine, yeah.
It's true.
I I have a synthetic partner.
I know.
When I was at your house, we kind of bumped into each other.
You snooped in my room? I'm working a case.
It's called investigating.
I snooped in your bathroom, too.
I'm talking about the opioid pills.
Are you sick or are you an addict? I have cancer.
Yeah, yeah.
Found out two years ago.
But I've accepted it.
The chemo the chemo's not for me, but so far, I'm feeling okay.
And none of this is gonna affect what we do.
Is that why you left me for Diane? Anything I say right now is gonna be a little wrong and a little hurtful.
Herb, I know you thought you were trying to protect me, but I could've handled this.
I could've taken care of you.
Yeah, yeah, you say that now, but, um [claps softly and sighs.]
I still can, Herbie.
I really I gotta get home.
I should get home.
Of course.
Your anniversary.
How do you know about that? I bugged your house.
If he contacts Hazel, I need to be recording.

- Don't worry.
Audio only.
And not in your bedroom.

Open the door and step inside slowly.

Okay, not that slow.

Don't shoot.
I'm not gonna hurt you.
The gun's not even real.

Well, he might if he thinks I'm holding you hostage.
Oh, man.
So hungry.
Yeah, have at it.
I'm home.
Hazel? Did you skedaddle yet? [upbeat dramatic music.]

- Jesus, Hazel.
What? [normally.]
I don't know what she sounds like.
Um ♪ She looks pretty good, right? That's, uh is that Yeah.
That's Mom's dress, yeah.
That's the one that she would always say she thought it was too fancy to wear.
I found it in the back of the closet.
But Diane would like for you to take her out on a proper dinner date tonight for your anniversary so I made a reservation at Luisa's.
I appreciate this, Hazel, but there's a reason that I don't go out.
All right? I told you.
People, they're not kind.
I know.
But Diane deserves better and you deserve better.
You should get to live your life whatever way that you want to.
And I'm gonna be there.
I'm gonna have your back tonight.
I'm gonna have a drink at the bar and if anyone tries to mess with you, I'm gonna step in.
♪ She's too pretty to stay home.
She does look beautiful.
[indistinct chatter.]
Um, sir? They're not thinning out, Bennett.
I mean, it's as if more people are showing up.
What did Hazel say? I'm being held hostage.
Oh, my God.
She's so dramatic.
No, really.
What do you mean, really? [dramatically.]
Herringbone? [softly.]

Let's all sit down.

Feel a little tense with the gun.
Do you mind putting it down? Yeah.
Thank you.
Did you receive the intel I sent you? Regarding Fiffany? I did.
That was you? Yes, sir.
Why didn't you tell me? I didn't think you'd believe me.
Wanted to give you a chance to immediately protect the company and yourself from whatever Fiffany was planning next.
Well, thank you for that.
I did take care of it.
Now I hope that you'll look at that as a, you know, proof of my loyalty to you.
And a plea for forgiveness.
You were my first hire, Herringbone.
It was me and you in the beginning and you betrayed me at my lowest point.
And look, now I know how wrong I was.
So here I am, right? I mean [sighs.]
Sir, you, the Hub, the work that we do, that's my life! I am nothing without you! I am nobody out there! Well, I wiped your identity.
Byron, come on, man.
In all the years I worked for you, I made one mistake.
How many mistakes does this fucking idiot make, huh? One mistake and I paid a price.
I paid a fair price.
So what do you say, huh? I'm pouring my heart out, here.
Everything you just said I had been waiting for her to say this whole time.
Well, hey.
Hey, we can get her to realize it, too, you know? Together.
Just like the old days.
Does Hazel know I'm out yet? [device chimes.]
I don't think so.

Where'd you get her? - Diane? - Yeah.

Anyway, so give me something, tell me something.
You know, where you from? Were you in a cult? You just came outta nowhere? So that's very possible.

[timpani drum roll.]
Can you turn the volume up on that one? - I can't take credit for it.
- You all right? My wife has brought something to my attention.
I've become a bit of a stranger to the world.
So I guess you can say with the Hub, I created a world for myself.
And I got comfortable there.
So much so that I have forgot how to be comfortable anywhere else.
In the Hub, I was an observer, a watcher, looking at screens constantly, just like many of you.
But I am here to say [dramatic electronic music.]
I've put the screen down.
Dad? Dad? Hazel.
Exciting new developments at Gogol and I'm ready to connect on a very personal level.

I don't know if he's watching us or if he's not watching us right now.
But just in case he isn't, I need one moment to feel like I am free and alone.
Okay? Shane? Please? It's different from before.
And and and I just need the plane for, like 20 minutes.
[quirky suspenseful music.]
What happens when you get up in the air and decide you don't wanna bring it back? Then what? Then I'll give you Diane.
Definitely a lot of new growth happening here.
And I do want to say thank you for coming to me about Fiffany.
It really, really says a lot about your character.
It wasn't an easy choice.
Never is, right? No.
But loyalty's important to me.
- Mm-hmm.
- Which is why I wanted to talk to you about some ideas I came up with.
- And I could - Really? And I think actions speak louder than words.
Wow, new cube? What is this place? Byron? ♪ Psst! Psst! ♪ Fiff? What are you doing? You're not supposed to be at the Hub.
