Episode 6, “Man Handled”, opened with the beginning scene in 1998. Lewinsky confronts Tripp and FBI agents, who take her to a hotel suite. Therein, the prosecutors interview her. Lewinsky discovers that she’s in deep trouble. These troubles include a total of 28 years of imprisonment for committing perjury-related crimes. However, she realizes that cooperating with the investigations would expose her affair and tape calls with Clinton. Fearing the exposé, she refuses to go along with the investigations. Mike Emmick asks her to cooperate, or she’d have to spend 28 years in prison.
However, Monica tries her best to keep composure. Bennett also tries to get Lewinsky to talk, employing more aggressive interrogative tactics. Lewinsky sticks to the post and doesn’t give them anything. All the while, Lewinsky is also distraught at Tripp for betraying her like this. Eventually, the agents allow Lewinsky out of the hotel suite. Lewinsky gets out and calls her mother from a payphone. Her mother eventually arrives to help her daughter. Meanwhile, her father hires the family lawyer — Bill Ginsberg. Bill tells Lewinsky she doesn’t have to stay there and should leave the suite. With her mother, Lewinsky finally leaves the hotel suite.
