Johnson grabs his hammer and starts to create sparks. One catches and there's an explosion. It travels up the elevator shaft and kills the miners inside. Meanwhile, the Lightman Group, Wallace, a mining executive, wants to hire Lightman to try to disprove a report that blames the accident on the company instead of human error. However, Wallace does even know the faces of the miners who died. At the same moment, Foster met with FBI boss Dillon and reminds him that the Lightman Group is not on retainer with them. Dillon uses blackmail of Lightman playing poker with criminals and tells that he will press felony charges if they don't cooperate. She tells Lightman about this and tells that she will handle it...
