A few men who feel their families lost everything after their mortgages were sold ruthlessly march into Joel Graves's company HQ. When denied an interview with the CEO, two of them intrude to force him at gun-point to make a 'confesion' on TV, as a live camera crew already stood by. A fellow victim stays in the lobby but threatens to incinerate himself. Their backgrounds prove vital for Ed and Sam to get control. While Sam especially hopes for Jules recovering fully so she can return, Greg grudgingly interviews possible replacements. Written by KGF Vissers
