MICHAELA: Hey, it’s me. I really screwed up.
BEN: Why? What happened?
MICHAELA: I told Griffin about the callings. And I assumed that he wouldn’t be receiving them unless he was gonna do the right thing. But now he’s gonna exploit them. He’s not gonna tell us what he saw unless he gets to walk on the murder charges.
MICHAELA: Yeah, surprise.
BEN: And in the meantime, the media is starting to ask questions.
Michaela’s Request for Help
MICHAELA: Look, I could really use your help right now.
BEN: Name it.
MICHAELA: I don’t have time to do research. The U.S. Attorney is gonna make a deal with this guy any second, and then we’ll be out of time.
MICHAELA: He saw an explosion and I think he saw where.
BEN: Okay, what kind of research do I need to do?
MICHAELA: I’m gonna send you Griffin’s police record. He’s been in and out of jail since he was 15 years old. But I-I need more than his rap sheet. I need something to work with. I need something human, something personal.
BEN: Great. Cody.
CODY: Okay, this whole thing has just been taken up a notch. James Griffin is the proof. These people are dangerous. And don’t forget Ben Stone, okay, came to my place of business and physically assaulted me. And now one of them’s a murderer? We need to take care of them before they take care of us. You need to get on your Twitter, get on your Facebook, get on your Insta—
GRACE: Let us help you. It’s just research that you need, right? You have a whole team right here.
BEN: Fair point. All right. Let’s do this.
Entire Stone Family Working on Investigation
Thankfully, we now have the full Stone family on board with the investigation, and it wouldn’t be too surprising to see Olive come up with the breakthrough. There’s still Ben’s peacock to work into the equation (perhaps the opposing symbol to the wolf), and although Cal may put on a good show of working on school projects (seems a bit old for popsicle stick dragons), he’s clearly not finished with his part in the story. But even Grace’s participation was welcome… and her telling Ben that she was happy they were a family again helped somewhat defuse a season’s worth of negative viewer opinion of her character.
