Appearance Edit

Boothby was supposed to play a passive role when Elena arrived to see the forged painting. Everyone was surprised when Elena was accompanied by her husband Ivan Kharkov. Boothby stepped into the breach and distracted Ivan with a walking tour of the estate while while Sarah Bancroft approached Elena.
