Nate hands the master back to Eliot while Kirkwood is taken away by the cops. Lynn is practically mobbed by A&R (artists & repertoire) representatives impressed by her performance and interested in helping her make connections to advance in the industry.

Showtime starts as Eliot, introduced as Kenneth Crane, sings Kaye Lynnís new song "Thinking Of You." Hardison begins to panic because his program is not making any corrections to Eliot's pitch, but Nate points out that it's not correcting because it doesn't need to - Eliot's singing is fine on its own. When the song is over, everyone goes wild. Kirkwood has his henchman Jesse take Nate aside so that he can confront Sophie and insert himself into the deal, lying to her that he and Crane's manager are old childhood friends and demanding half a million dollars for the rights to the song. Nate finds himself being menaced by a pair of musclebound thugs; he calls for Eliot's help but Eliot, making out with Kaye Lynn, has taken his comm off and does not hear him. When Kirkwood comes into the room, expecting to find Nate roughed up and intimidated, he instead sees Nate sitting calmly and both of his goons unconscious on the floor. He thus has no choice but to give Nate the money.
