FB: LAW AND ORDER: GASTONIA seemed like a sure thing, but Ardaic kept solving the crimes before the first commercial break. 

Taro does understands that it’s important to mix some truth in with the lies. He really did want that “I’m proud” from Dad.

“Procedure compels” Ardaic to do a lot of things, actually.

Some of you recognized the servant that Taro tries to finger here. The irony is that while this is a cover story from Taro, it’s actually mostly right: Brock is actively working against the Iwatani family! He couldn’t have anticipated that family getting a lot smaller while he was doing his espionage, but his goals and his allies’ are more or less unchanged.
