Roper lays it out, but Pine plays dumb. Roper regrets not listening to Corky. He demands information from Pine who refuses to tell him anything. Roper plays the Jed card, shows him a picture of her beat up and bloody. This sets Pine off. Roper would kill Pine, but they need Pine's retina image to complete the deal. Roper tells him Jed's life depends on his performance.
