The agents were able to (mostly) rationalise their horrible sacrifice of Philip to the vampires, losing only a little sleep, and carried on in their mission. By hacking HSBC's email, Han Lee had learned of Euston's dealings with Romanian business partners. However, whatever Euston's "special projects" were, he didn't keep them anywhere that a hacker could access.
After discussing with Li Ling, the agents worked out a plan to take action against the Shadow Kings - and see how they reacted to a small provocation at the Wu Zetian exhibition at the museum. Li Ling knew that Euston would be there with Fei-Hong, so she planned to confront her brother there and present him with lawyers' papers that would prevent him from breaking up the shipping company any further. Han Lee would accompany her to keep her safe. Meanwhile, the plan was for Ali to attend the exhibition using a date with Phyllis as his cover to observe Euston and see his reactions, while Jon would also infiltrate as the combat element - just in case.
Jon Chow spent a few hours scoping out the Hong Kong Museum and learned about the heightened security and metal detectors that would protect the Wu Zetian exhibition on the third floor. He decided to plant several of the team's clean handguns in the toilet tanks of several men's rooms. Unfortunately, he lacked the skills needed to successfully hide the weapons and they were later discovered and seized!
On the night of the show, Li Ling, Han Lee, Ali and Phyllis arrived through the main entrance and encountered the huge crowds and journalists. The world-famous actress Fan Bingbing of the Wu Zetian TV series was present as a special guest, which resulted in wall-to-wall crowds. Everyone made their way in slowly and got into position. Jon Chow entered through the back and soon discovered that police were waiting to catch him in a trap - one which he evaded.
Ali and Phyllis met one of Euston's security detail, a bumbling newbie who was easy to trick. When he went off to the men's room, Jon Chow ambushed him and seized his comms earpiece.
At the exhibition, Li Ling had an icy face-off with Euston and Fei-Hong. She slapped him with the legal injunction and watched as Euston and Fei-Hong backed off. Meanwhile, Ali noticed the presence of a strange man who looked like a hippie with long hair and a bad Hawaiian shirt. The hippie-like fellow seemed to be watching Euston and wasn't afraid to be seen.
Before the Shadow King officer could leave the museum show, a man approached him suddenly with a personal message. "She wants to see you. At Heaven's Beach. She's dying."
Suddenly, Euston dropped whatever his plans were. He took Fei-Hong and his best guard to the Mercedes (well, Fei-Hong's Mercedes) and drove off towards an old seaside tenement called Heaven's Beach. Through the captured earpiece, Jon was able to listen in. Euston was leaving behind most of his bodyguard entourage, and he would be going outside of the Shadow Kings' territory without backup. This might be the best chance to get an advantage on him, or at least learn more about his urgent personal matter. Without time to prepare, and without much in the way of weapons, the agents prepared to follow.
"Ali, come back with me. Would you like to drink with me at my place?" asked Phyllis, feeling the love.
"Nooooooo!!!" Ali was shattered, but he had to decline. Mission first.
