You introduce yourself and Michelle, then ask Grizwald if he's ever done Save the Queen.

"Nope. It's a gubberment mind control plot. So's extatix, and any level with more than a hunnerd ingredients. Cleantex'll increase yer risk of cancer, but that don't stop me from usin' it. I owe you a dollar, by the way. Y'aaall wanna beer?"

Michelle immediately pipes up. "Yes. I am going to need a beer."

Grizwald squints at her. "...You a tube cop, or you just work out a lot?"

Michelle almost snorts trying not to laugh. "I was grown in a vat, yeah. I'm no longer employed by a law enforcement agency, though. Just a bodyguard."

"Ah, gotcha. No problemo then, I jus' don't want any fuzz in here."

As Grizwald shuffles away to fetch beers from a mini fridge behind the front counter, Michelle turns to you. She looks like a deer in headlights.

"He has a tinfoil hat," she says under her breath. "Like, literally, a tinfoil hat. I think he might be missing a few marbles, Blondie."

Accept a beer and ask Grizwald about the tinfoil hat.

It stops being paranoia when someone's actually pulling a large-scale mind control plot, Michelle.

Present him with his thumbdrive and ask him how he got to learn this much, without being a target for immediate termination from cultists.

Also, remote-check on Fuse. If he can't get in touch with his contact to get rid of the bodies, just... find an empty flat and roast the damn things in its kitchen, then trash the bones.
Don't leave fingerprints, DNA. Avoid being seen. Too many people down there will notice his disconnection to Queen.

He's got a tinfoil hat and despite that has gotten a video into Jane's locker, not to mention knowing about her coming back from what should have been a grave, etc, etc.
Have some drinks with him and hear him out.
I mean, what exactly were we expecting from him other than some more information anyways?

We probably don't actually need beer, come to think of it. If we can learn painkilling, we can also learn intoxication, I assume.

But yeah, asking about the hat is a good idea. With how weird this month has been, a tinfoil hat might actually provide some sort of useful protection!

Also, we need to know how safe this place is. Hopefully we weren't followed... but maybe Griz has some sort of defenses in place. (Aside from the hat.) Then we can move on to asking him what he knows.

Have a beer. Experiment with decontamination, removing things from your bloodstream, or at least isolating them safely.
