Season OneEdit

At the end of S1, we find Spangler defiant of all his many detractors.

  • He has gotten the "Clover" from the Clover Group, but does not seem inclined to suicide, or stop the operation.
  • He taunts Will Travers to submit his report - "Do you think anyone will give a shit?"
  • Kale Ingram concentrates on protecting API, rather than risk further damage by opposing Spangler.

Spangler spins into the maelstrom of the threat of war that he and his shadow group created, and will be difficult to dislodge.
