Looking for “the key” to ruin Abaddonn and “free” its employees, Amy orchestrates a meeting with Jeff Flender, a charming whistle-blowing journalist, sharing incriminating e-mails she printed out at work with Tyler’s IT password. Though he doesn’t find a story in the e-mails, Jeff encourages Amy to dig deeper and find more explosive evidence that could help bring down the company.
Amy and a still-reluctant Tyler meet Jeff at a jazz club, where he reveals he’s already been working on a story about Abaddonn but needs proof of bribery, leading Amy to revel in her fantasies. When several top execs can’t log onto their accounts, Abaddonn’s breach of security is exposed, leaving Tyler scrambling to find a solution that won’t lead investigators to him or Amy. Suspecting foul play, Dougie vows to root out the true perps, while Krista is rushed to the hospital with a pregnancy complication.
Amy receives a letter from Levi, who’s still in Hawaii and has been bristling under theconstraints of Open Air, its holistic philosophy and his bodily-function obsessed roommate Tony. To cope, Levi escapes with a pair of fellow malcontents, Travis and Danielle, for a night of drugs, alcohol and debauchery at a nearby hotel. After pushing himself to his hard-partying limits, Levi decides he’s ready to return to Open Air and give rehab one more chance.
Amy becomes inspired to use social media to spread her message of change, and attends a gathering of liberal intellectuals at Jeff’s invitation. Dougie learns who hacked into Abaddonn’s system, but has second thoughts about reporting the breach to HR. Amy has a chance run-in with Abaddonn CEO Charles Szidon.
In an effort to dig up dirt on Szidon, Amy, Tyler and Dougie, who’s still irate over being betrayed by management, take turns trying to befriend Eileen, the CEO’s assistant. Eventually agreeing to join the trio for drinks after work, Eileen takes a shine to Tyler, who ends up with a guilty conscience when the two start dating.
In the giddy afterglow of finding “gold” in Szidon’s personal emails, Amy lets down her guard with Jeff, and indulges herself in daydreams of building a perfect life with a dashing journalist. The dream comes to an abrupt end, however, when Levi unexpectedly returns from rehab in Hawaii.
In hopes she will drop her crusade against Abaddonn, Tyler gets Eileen to arrange a meeting for Amy with Szidon, who turns out to have more compassion than Amy expected. Dougie goes off the rails after getting official word about Cogentiva’s future. Amy confides in Krista about the Abaddonn expose, and has a tense meeting with Levi.
On the verge of bringing down Abaddonn, Amy warns Tyler to prepare himself for the inevitable fallout. She also tells her mom about the expose, but Helen’s reaction is not what she expected. When Szidon gets wind of her intentions, Amy wrongly points a finger at Krista, who has just given birth. As the crisis reaches its denouement, Amy is intercepted by HR and taken to meet with Szidon and Abaddonn lawyers for a final reckoning.
