Part IX of the Going Private miniseries "The Spiral." With the Chairman and CEO missing in action, the margin calls come in. A team of bankers meets secretly as they prepare to gut The Firm. The complicity of certain regulators leaves a foul stench in the air as the Firm's negotiators prostrate themselves before the presence of a Wall Street luminary. The offers are low. Very low, and turmoil threatens to destroy what is left of the Board of Directors. Despondent, one mistress resorts to an old habit for consolation.
