Good morning. After we get out of bed, we’re entering a rich guy’s house, finding out he’s the worst kind of capitalist, failing to recruit him anyway, prostrating ourselves in front of him, finding a hard-boiled noir detective in the water margin, hearing of a risky trade, opening a plot debate, throwing a coin off a bridge, beating up a grown man, sifting through mud, and forging a much needed alliance. I already know what you want, but go ahead and tell me anyway.
