--Sound: computerized tones--
Computer: Phone call intercepted between Bae Oh and Unidentified Man.
--Sound: static--
Bae Oh: I told you never to contact me directly. How did you get this number?
Unidentified Man: The Ekaterina defenses are not what they used to be, Bae.
Bae Oh: Tell that to the unfortunate Tomas we caught outside our stronghold last week.
Unidentified Man: There's no time for games. The violence has to stop or else none of us will succeed.
Bae Oh: And what have you been doing to help?! ... Lurking in the shadows in your ridiculous black clothes? ... Quite an impressive skill. The other branch leaders have noticed you as well. I should warn you ... the Lucians will not tolerate you any longer. I heard Vikram Kabra, himself, authorize your capture.
Unidentified Man: I'm not afraid of the Kabra's.
Bae Oh: They have slowed down over the years. Isabelle seems to find redecorating almost as enjoyable as midnight assassinations. It's a shame, really. She was such a good shot. But the children are proving just as nasty. They're almost ready to be sent off on their own.
Unidentified Man: They may have their chance soon. Grace is very sick. She doesn't have much time.
Bae Oh: Do you mean all the nonsense about a competition was real?
Unidentified Man: Grace was serious about it, but it's still unclear. McIntyre told me she has two versions of her will. She hasn't decided yet which one to use.
Bae Oh: She has no right to do this! She's just like her father... sticking her nose into the other branches' business. It's a good thing my half-brother was eliminated early in the game. Who knows what sort of trouble he could have caused.
Unidentified Man: The clues need to be found, Bae ... now, more than ever.
Bae Oh: They will be found. The Ekaterina are closer than you think. And we've learned from the Lucian's fatal error. We'll never come that close only to lose everything.
Unidentified Man: If Grace chooses to use her alternate will, everything will change. It'll even the playing field.
Bae Oh: What does this have to do with me?!! Why are you wasting my time with this?
Unidentified Man: The Ekaterina Leadership will need to support whichever member of the branch is chosen to participate in the competition. Otherwise, the Ekats will have no chance.
Bae Oh: I hardly need your advice about how to run my branch. If this is why you called, I must ask you to hang up and never contact me again.
Unidentified Man: I think Grace is going to choose Alistair.
Bae Oh: I never understood why Grace was so fond of my failure of a nephew.
Unidentified Man: You've always underestimated him.
Bae Oh: He's always been worthless ... even as a child. If he is chosen to compete in Grace's silly little game, he'll be on his own.
Unidentified Man: You'd be opening the door for another branch to find the clues. It could be the Tomas.
Bae Oh: Heh heh, I hardly think that's a concern. Why do you care how the Ekaterina do in the competition? You've never shown preference for any of the branches. I thought you wanted to separate yourself from this business entirely.
Unidentified Man: I've started to realize how much is at stake.
Bae Oh: I find it hard to believe that a man who shuns society would care to be the most powerful person in the world.
Unidentified Man: There are many forms of power. Not all of them require surrounding yourself with people who fear you.
Bae Oh: But you called me... You wish to align yourself with the Ekaterina's, not with those barbaric Tomas or ridiculous Janus.
Unidentified Man: I just want to give you fair warning that everything's about to change.
Bae Oh: Fair warning ...how interesting! ...And what about the Cahill children? No doubt, Grace has been training them for years!
Unidentified Man: They have nothing to do with this.
Bae Oh: They have everything to do with this!
Unidentified Man: I'll deal with the children. You concern yourself with the other branches.
Bae Oh: You're hardly in a position to be giving orders.
Unidentified Man: I'll be watching you... I'll be watching everyone.
Bae Oh: You can't stay on the outside forever. It's time to choose.
Unidentified Man: I've chosen.
