<-- Previous EpisodeNext Episode -->
The episode begins with Roscoe wanting to know about Ouroboros. Marty tells him that probably it’s a monkey. But Jeremiah tells him that it is a snake; the kind that eats its own tail. Next we see that Skip is introducing a corporate giant to the team; McDale. McDale cuts into the introductory speech and tells the team that he is going to bring in another consultancy and everyone would be interviewed; with no exceptions made. The team will be evaluated on their past performance. And obviously, this doesn’t go down very well with the guys. The team walks in; and too Marty’s disappointment, Monica and James are in the new panel. Greg introduces them as the best team in the business.

Marty tells Monica that they should not make this look ugly. Marty tells Marco (the rainmaker) that they should do something about the situation. He says that he doesn’t want Greg and Skip walking all over him. Marty tells Marco that either they should get Skip thrown out of this business or at least take the merger out of MetroCapital. Marco says that both can be done. He tells him about a guy named Ricky. The guy had made a lot of unfair money and he owes him. He tells Marty that Ricky can be their white knight and help them throw Skip out of the water. Next, Greg tells Marty that they should have a meeting; a strategy session. Marty laughs at this. He tells Greg that he knows that Greg hates him and that he orchestrated the whole merger thing because he wanted to make Marty his slave. Marty tells him that he also knows that Greg wouldn’t fire him but humiliate him tell he is broke; professionally. He tells Greg that if this continues; they will either get past this shit or end up killing each other. Marty tells him that they should go out, get drunk and do unspeakable things to people they don’t care. Greg agrees.
