The arc comes to a close, even though the issues remain open. At some point, the board has to make a decision – Take the path to the right, Take the path to the left, or Stand in the middle of the road, (which is a decision unto itself.)
Vinny’s board has taken the “maximize immediate return on investment” path, which was the obvious choice once they understood the situation. The decision brings the SidePocket story to a close because there is no more SidePocket to discuss. However, it leaves at least on human open, unresolved and visible for all to see.

The Corporate Goddesses
In this episode a pair of movers debate the meaning of a series of statues that are commonly called “The Corporate Goddesses”. These statues are mounted on the top of 860 California Street in San Francisco’s Financial District. They were done by sculptor Muriel Castanis (1926-2006). From a distance they appear to be draped female figures but closer inspection reveals that they are only the draping without faces or figures.
