Star assassin Samantha Steele (Abby Elliott) finds herself unable to deliver on what should honestly be a fairly straight-forward killing, while her ex-boyfriend, Chris the (American) Ninja, is close to harakiri over the end of their relationship.
Sam and The Pilot bond over the various stresses of their murderous professions and then a huge spoiler alert happens. And then something else really interesting happens at the end of the episode but we can’t talk about that here, but really it’s pretty good.
Sam arrives at the modest townhouse lair of The Pilot (Marc Evan Jackson), and discovers that he’s definitely down to not be killed. Mephisto tags along on a new mission and makes things awkward by not being needed in any way whatsoever.
At the weekly office meeting, Mephisto is disappointed in Sam for uncharacteristically failing to get the job done, and also he struggles with a white board that falls over. Sam accuses her rival, Madeline, of being from the French Quarter of Milwaukee, which isn’t even a thing and also why is that an insult?
At Cobra Mephisto & Leibowitz, the number one death expediency firm (in the Greater Northeast region), a brutal interrogation conducted by the legendary Mark Mephisto grinds to a halt over confusion about the online office calendar, which makes the whole thing seem like a big joke, really.
