Axe installs rigorous compliance measures to gird the company against the investigation by Chuck and the US Attorney's office. When Wendy questions Axe's methods, he compels her to prove her loyalty to the firm. Chuck's investigation is temporarily derailed when he has to divert resources to a case against an Axe rival, billionaire Steven Birch. Axe's black bag man and fixer, Hall, develops a mole inside the US Attorney's office, while Axe makes an aggressive move under the guise of a charitable contribution to the symphony in order to settle an old score.

At the fundraiser dinner, Penn Jillette, one half of the magic duo Penn & Teller, is seen doing a fire-eating act. This is not a trick of the camera or special effect. Penn often performs this feat on stage, explaining to the audience exactly how it is accomplished.
"It's not the cotton [torch] that burns, it's the fuel that burns...You've got moisture in your mouth, and all that moisture has to evaporate from any given part of your mouth, before that part will burn...When you feel your mouth drying out, you close your lips tightly. That cuts out most of the oxygen and [he snaps his fingers] the fire goes out. Now when I was being taught this, I got burned every time I tried it, and I still get burned occasionally, but the burns you get from fire-eating are for the most part extremely minor. They're the kind of burns you get when you eat a pizza too fast, and that cheese'll snag you, or you gulp some hot coffee." See more
