When millionaire art collector Jonas Gault dies, he leaves a messy family situation and a complete, curated collection of artist, Jean Mettier, as part of his estate. While the kids are in DC, Sophie sneaks to the Gault estate for an art auction. It takes Nate 20 whole minutes to deduce her planned itinerary and affix upon her tail. Sophie claims she just wants to view 'Ma Mystere,' Mettier's first work which no person but the artist and owner have ever seen. Sophie claims it is just personal interest. Sterling turns up a few seconds after the crowd discovers the painting is missing and turns up the heat.
Did You Know?
This is the third episode in which Sophie uses British vulgarity ("I'll be buggered"). The first time was in the very first episode "The Nigerian Job" when she called Nate a "wanker" in the flashback scene after he had shot her in the back(side?). The second was in the first episode of season 2, "The Beantown Bailout Job", where she says "Bugger" after knocking out Nate with a serving tray. See more

Oh, including yours?
Oh, you've never pulled apart *my* plans.
