After the Payne Motors servers get hacked, the employees get increasingly stressed about the threat to the company.

For Wesley (Jon Barinholtz), however, he boasts a portion of his fortune is locked in a password-protected digital vault…but he only gets a number of incorrect guesses before he’s locked out of it entirely. Naturally, he’s forgotten his password, much to Dori (X Mayo) and Cyrus’ (Michael Benjamin Washington) chagrin.

“It’s just fun to watch this nepo little rich baby just spiral,” Mayo tells Give Me My Remote in the video below. “That was very fun for Dori’s character…and then just to be like, kind of just like looking at Michael like what?”

“But, also, it was just frustrating as a Black woman to know that this white man is just one click away or one pound sign or…password entry away from millions of dollars,” she continues. “And so that was very funny to watch and to see him spiral.”

As Cyrus and Dori got to team up to deal with the insanity, their portrayers had fun getting to bounce off each other.

“[We got] to have a little tag team, a little Laverne and Shirley,” Mayo says. “To kind of be like [Wesley]’s crazy, this is stupid, and for Cyrus to be like, ‘Absolutely.'”

“It’s always fun to work with X, because she tries to pull me out of my comfort zone which is this very boxed in [space],” Washington adds. “Cyrus, he does due diligence…and she’s always like, ‘Laugh. Let’s have fun. Let’s do this.’ And that yin and yang is really, really, really exciting to watch on camera. And it’s really good for both of us to learn from each other’s process.”
