What Happened in Episode 4?

In The Dropout Episode 4, Elizabeth convinced Walgreens executives to use Theranos’ blood testing device for new wellness centres in their stores. She expertly evaded all of their lab expert’s questions about the labs and FDA approval, but he remains suspicious.

Meanwhile, Ian poked around and found out about Elizabeth’s and Sunny’s plan to partner with Walgreens and test the unfinished device on humans. Elizabeth fired him after his protest, but hired him back when the entire lab stood up for him.
