Darby and Grantham retrieve the tape and affidavit from the safety deposit box of White & Blazevich employee Curtis Morgan (Jake Weber), the same individual who identified himself to Grantham as "Garcia". They take the items to Grantham's editor, Smith Keen (John Lithgow). On the tape, Morgan admits to finding a memo written by W&B senior partner Marty Velmano (Anthony Heald) in which Velmano suggests that Justices Rosenberg and Jensen be "retired". The Herald decides to go to press with the information. Grantham contacts Velmano, Coal, and Voyles to forewarn them and to give them a chance to make comments. Velmano emphatically denies everything, Coal informs the President, and Voyles shows up at The Herald to meet Darby and to make his statement. Voyles agrees to get Darby out of the county and gives her the use of his private jet. Soon thereafter, Darby and Grantham are flown to an undisclosed location. Darby kisses and hugs Grantham goodbye, and he flies back to the States, while Darby goes on alone. In the final scene, Grantham is being interviewed on television. The interviewer informs him that Mattiece and his lawyers have been indicted, Coal has resigned as White House Chief of Staff, and the President is strongly indicating that he won't run for re-election. When asked the whereabouts of Darby Shaw, Grantham replies, "That's a question for Darby Shaw," and smiles cryptically. The interviewer speculates that Darby might be just a figment of Grantham's imagination; again, Grantham smiles cryptically. Meanwhile, on some island (presumably in the Caribbean), Darby is watching the interview. She smiles, too.
