After finding the two half dressed, she pretends to check her messages, but secretly takes photos of the two instead. Francoise gives Lily and Craig a list of very expensive upgrades they need to make on the factory or else they will face fines. Lily thinks it's extortion, but Craig wants to do it so they can get their product out. Lily tells Francoise the deal is off because she didn't disclose the upgrades before the sale. When Francoise is ready to walk, Craig convinces Lily he's fine with spending his money and convinces Lily to go along with the upgrades.
