Synopsis for "Cold Medicine"
Edwin Dolby and Sam Garfield are at the shooting range of the Beverly Hills Gun Club. Dolby is given a turn and is shown to display a natural aptitude for marksmanship, in which he states to a surprised Garfield that he had never ever fired a gun before. Agent Wax is seen spying on them.
Wax is then at LAX to get his flight back to Washington and makes a call to Cole Cash, who informs him that Dolby and Garfield are not seen as a threat to Halo and about the former's marksmanship; in which Cole catches some interest in the latter information.
Meanwhile, Jack Marlowe is doing an interview by Miss Greene of Fiscal Magazine. He reveals his intentions for his company is not for profit but to improve society. Also, Marlowe strikes a deal in buying the Belljar Company, a powerful media empire, therefore making Halo one of the eight media giants that controls the world.
In Washington, Agent Wax returns to the National Forestry Service where Agent Downs grills him for his unprecedented absence in which he is severely demoted to a chauffeur in which he provides transportation for Downs's wife Miriam. While driving Miriam Downs, Agent Wax is frustrated by her constant yammering on her phone in which he finally snapped and used his hypnotic powers on Downs's wife in having sex with her.
Back in Los Angeles, Dolby arrives to his home in the late of night to find it intruded by two hulking S&M men, who attacks him. Dolby puts up a fight but is eventually beaten before blacking out.
At Halo, Cole shares his doubts to Marlowe about reprogramming Agent Orange. As Marlowe reasons with Cole that Orange's reprogramming would bring him in line with Halo's objectives, he is needed elsewhere to his office. Marlowe teleports there to find C.C. Rendozzo, who wants a conversation with him as she reveals that she knows of his alien origins.
