Part III of the Going Private miniseries "The Spiral." A mortal betrayal by the CFO is revealed. The head of the firm's mortgage desk airs his concerns about the firm's aggressive hedging positions, but the CFO cannot be bothered. The exodus of firm personnel begins. The CEO is repeatedly urged to consider asset sales, or at least an equity raise to prop up the firm's dwindling capital, but his focus is on the future, and the phoenix-like rise he believes the firm will undertake. The sounds of financial panic, however, echo through his corner offices.
