Matt's eyebrows flicked up as he shook his head and made his way back to desk. As per his charade of being sightless, he gripped the back of his chair and used it to guide himself back to sitting, but he leaned back and crossed his arms behind his head. They were supposed to track down the man in black. Him. How did he do that and not expose himself for being other? Kat and Klaus were in on the secret, but there were others who would be hunting him. Cole, potentially, the Tech Pit, for sure. He had to be smart as he did this, both to look like he was putting in effort at the office and to keep from getting actually caught.
"Ehh...it was all shots across the bow," And the nautical terminology fit, didn't it?
"We know she knows, so now that we've been officially been scolded, she doesn't feel bad about permitting it. It's a check mark off on her to-do list at least. That wasn't her only mandate, though. Congratulations, team...we've been given a special assignment. Klaus, she'll probably fill you in shortly, but I like to spoil things, so..."
He sat back up and planted his elbows on his desk and addressed Cole and Klaus with the information he'd been given.
"Jones is putting a pack together to hunt down and investigate this man in black. You two are forward operatives on this, Kat's analysis, I'm ops planning. She's calling it a fast response team, I'm calling bullshit. We've gotten reports from Tech that there's a new player on the street...cause and effect, right? To that end, I'm going to need to know a time tomorrow that the four of us an sit down, clear the air, and begin hammering out our official stance on this vigilante and whether we engage or let him play. Do you need any of the resources that Tech has gathered in order to make a decision on that or have you already seen the data?"
Matt saw his role as ops planner to be the gate keeper for his team. If they needed anything, he got it for them. If anyone wanted to try and harass them, Matt stood in the way. Cole was part of the team now, so despite the snippiness earlier, Matt was going to enfold the agent into his care and provide for him the resources that were needed to get the job done.
