Michael is doing everything to keep his son away from a mad woman. He was completely preoccupied with Wiley. Olivia thinks that choosing to not tell Michael about this has nothing to do with anything. Ned is not trying to kick Michael out. He is trying to manage a crisis. ELQ could be in for a hostile takeover.
