"What happened last night?" asks Toby. "Dozens dead, Bruckner was just the first to hit the news, six blocks trashed, and LA's biggest law firm is a smoking hole in the ground."
"LSD in the water and masked street gangs with stolen military weapons," Leo says flatly.
"You want to try explaining it?"
"You know I can't... but they can, can't they?"
"Things went wrong," says Leo. "Communications failure, left their allies isolated when the crunch came."
"And they won anyway."
Leo nods, and leaves Toby staring at the TV and the smouldering rubble of victory.
