At ITEA HQ Colette Landry freezes Angela Schwarz after she reveals she'd discovered Colette's ties to Scott Dawson, smuggling her out of the building. In Newark Ryoshi Dawson starts a recruitment drive for Utopia Holdings, having already collected Valentine Mitchell. In Caxias Do Sul Scott Dawson awakens in bed next to Angel Jenly, one of his new tenants. Scott meets with Parker Reich, Utopia's new head of security, and gives her a tour, having previously acquired Talon Protection. Lara Zanella investigated Utopia Holdings, looking to make a business proposal, while Catherine Harper and River Peck looked to perhaps rob some penthouses. Ryoshi continued her recruitment drive, getting Helen Darwin, Melody Forsythe and Sondra Parker while using Rosalina Vasquez as her puppet. Lillian Carmichael ended up also joining Ryoshi, originally working at the hotel. Back in Brazil River Peck broke into Utopia Towers but discovered everyone frozen due to Type-7, eventually getting caught herself. The next morning Scott tested out his new Type-7D and contacted Ryoshi, reminding her about upcoming events.
- The story's original title was Scott's Annoyance.
- The prize Ryoshi collected was revealed in Happy Birthday Tucker Holmes to be Anastasia Stephanos.
