Lisa is thrown headfirst into the world of espionage when she is instructed by Hank to take Helen’s yoga class and pose as a friendly young student. Meanwhile, Jordan takes notice of an Onar resident named Stanley, who has a suspicious side hustle operating out of his apartment.
During a romantic dinner with Helen, Stanley gets a mysterious phone call from someone named Bob. Conflicted by her relationship with Helen, Lisa reports a minor infraction to Panopticog’s CEO, Judy Kratz. Jordan decodes that there may be a larger movement afoot among The Onar’s residents.
Stanley and Helen go to Heirloom, the Decadomes nightclub, where they meet Crispin Burge and his fun, jet-setting fiancée Samantha Sugarman. But their night out is cut short when Panopticog officers raid the club looking for Helen.
Now under house arrest, Helen gives Lisa her first mission: assume a false identity and seduce Stanley. Growing even more suspicious of Lisa’s motives, Jordan circumvents Hank and reports his findings to Judy Kratz.
