This scene takes place during the Scimitar stakeout. Sponsz sets up a video call to White who then directs Hokeler to send the white truck to Station Pier (or Swanson Dock?) for shipping.

Hokeler: Where’s it going?
White: I am unsure myself, our partners are still deciding. It’s going to Borduria first, but that may only be a stopover. Even if I knew, I am not really at liberty to say. [this is a lie, Patty’s expecting it, and White plans to misdirect it to Kûrvi-Tasch]

Muller, Violette, Topolino and Brambin await outside the office. There is a statue of Saul and David there too.

At this point, Calculus and the BB are outside placing the tracking devices on the truck and G-Wagon. Alternatively, ET can be placing the devices on the vehicles under their wheel arches, after Elwood places him there to do it.

The call to White ends. The video screen reverts back to CCTV shots of outside the office where the vehicles are parked, but no one saw the BB due to the call. (note: pic above is inaccurate, White’s call has ended before Topolino and Brambin enter the room)

Sponsz invites Topolino, Violette, Muller and Brambin into the office. Sponsz eyes off Brambin and she blushes a little, but is still steely faced.

Sponsz: I just wanted to thank the both of you for all your work.
Muller: Our pleasure. [Violette smiles]
Hokeler: The tests were successful at the animal pound.
Topolino: Ahem, yes of course. I personally don’t think the vehicle and equipment are quite ready, but it’s good enough for the work to be done and updates can be applied remotely with all the data we’re gathering from it. [he knows the truth and looked at the data and footage – that data and footage has remained with the truck, that’s why it’s a risk when the truck disappears. It also includes prior driving history and locations – all corresponding with the murder dates and times.]
[Hokeler brings out caviar and champagne from a cooler-bag]
Brambin: Cheers to everyone [barely cracking a smile]

This scene takes place as part of the pre-murder sequence at Hokeler’s place where Sponsz often sleeps. Scene sequence:

    1. Dawson – Sponsz (shrine)
    2. Muller – Sponsz (Sponz’s place)
    3. Hokeler – Sponsz (Hokeler’s place as seen here)
    4. murder sequence

Sponsz: I trust you have prepared the white truck for tomorrow’s first test run on live subjects?
Hokeler: Why yes of course Hen. You have the test subjects, I have the truck.
Sponsz: We’ll be going to the animal pound. There are dogs and cats there waiting to be euthanized. [this is a lie – Hokeler doesn’t know the full extent of Sponsz’s barbarity – it’s Hokeler’s first job in the arms industry – he’s from a bioengineering background]
Hokeler: Perfect
Sponsz: You know, loose lips sink ships.
Hokeler: Some ships sink anyway [moves close to him while holding the wine glass, which is still full .. Sponsz’s is almost finished.] And you have a track record on this?
Sponsz: Yes. I am standing here – that says enough
Hokeler: So no titanic disasters?
Sponsz: Exactly. Let’s keep it that way.

Note: Hokeler is one of many CEOs that’ve worked for Scimitar.  He hasn’t raised money for Scimitar, nor did he start it. He has been Sponsz’ boyfriend for a long time, even prior to Hokeler starting to work at Scimitar, and Sponsz has been testing and supporting Scimitar and White’s other weapons and war interests for an even longer time. Hokeler’s compromised laptop sits on the table, and there are two glasses – but they  aren’t the chalices.

After the murders, the story sheet sequence is to be:

  1. T + T
  2. Tintin at train tracks
  3. T + T and Ferrari near-hit
  4. White/Patty as mixed with Kurvi-Tasche.
  5. Boron meeting at Grumpy’s (or Pixel Alley) – they’re on a mission from God
