While the board washes its hands of the matter, Walther's widow goes on TV to allege the bank drove her husband to commit suicide. Who's the sicko here: The institution or the individual? And how bad was their marriage really? A bitter battle erupts between the bank and the widow. Assistant Tom is caught in the middle, looking for the truth - and a new mentor.
