As everyone getting ready for Tom's epic bachelor party. Ken and Stewy Hosseini began making some arrangements.

Ken is very much considering this, but immediately asked to meet Sandy Furness himself. [1]

Meanwhile, the sole reason for Roman having brought everyone to this underground party is to meet with Sandy himself. Before the end of the night he finally finds the man, and offers him a proposition. Roman wants to land a deal for local TV stations with his father’s longtime nemesis. Sandy agrees, after the other Roy brother leaves, Sandy tells Stewy to just yank his chain for a while before dropping him.

Ken also made an agreement with Sandy and steely to undermine his father's company for a takeover. [1]

Ken is informed by Stewy and Sandy that the hostile takeover will be moved up to this weekend. And is going to take place tomorrow, on Shiv’s wedding. As it is the perfect time with Logan out of the country. Ken begs them to reconsider, as he says there isn't enough time to get everything together.

Logan Roy and Kendall are set to have a private meeting with Stewy Hosseini and Sandy, but Logan calls to tell Ken he's not coming in and will have to conduct the meeting himself. Ken asks if there's any way out for the two sides to come together, and when they decline, Ken gives a very powerful speech about how his father well bury them. [4] Stewy calls him out for what's he done, but Sandy remains calm and neutral from his approach.

The Roy Family finally arrives at the conference, and soon meet up with Tom and Gregory. Greg is excited to have possibly touched Bill Gates. Logan is talking to them when he sees Sandy Furness across the room. He uses them as cover to discuss him and their ongoing lawsuit. [5]
