Jack appoints D'Arby to keep his eye on Kathy, now that she's back at the firm, but his covert ops are anything but. During his snooping he accidentally finds a five year old file on a rubber recycling process. Five years ago, the process was unprofitable, the cost to produce virgin rubber was lower than the cost of recycling it. Now however, with a surge in prices, the process becomes once again, valuable. Kathy, realising she is being spied on, devises a plan to lure Jack into a trap by stealing a worthless file in plain view of D'Arby. But instead of telling Jack, D'Arby brings Grant along to catch her in the act of giving the file to Ian. The two end up falling in a dumpster just as Kathy shows up to tell them to leave her alone.
