Hank must consider whether Dickie Pope’s ambition outweighs endangering respected professors whose livelihoods may be at stake for his ambitious scheme.

Hank and his team take action against Pope to prevent him from terminating any more professors, going public with their story on a local news channel and pressuring the college board.
