First Asquint asks if Sir Denis has hired those caterers he recommended, whereto Sir Denis answers yes. Then he asks if he can hire the Freelance Restorers to keep an eye out for his art collection. Not getting a sasisfactonary answer, he gets a little angry, but cools down quickly. Sir Denis starts to show his art collection, and Asquint criticizes it as bad art, but  Shang-Chi comes to Sir Denis defense. Then the cook announces dinner, and the party begins to eat. Suddenly the dinner is interrupted by a band of criminals who tries to steal Sir Denis’ art. When the criminals are defeated one of the criminals says “you said this’d be easy, Asquint”, revealing that Asquint is nothing more than a simple art thief, he tries to escape, but is captured by Sir Denis and Shang-Chi and send to jail alongside his gang
