'''Final Interview''' is a mission in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] given to [[Niko Bellic]] by [[Francis McReary]]. Francis tells Niko that a lawyer, [[Tom Goldberg]], has evidence for a case against him for corruption. Francis wants the dirt he has on himself and for Goldberg to be gotten rid of, but Goldberg has hired bodyguards and rides in limos which make a "normal assault" impossible.

Soon the lawyers will call for an appointment. Get yourself a nice suit and smart shoes from your penthouse or from [[Perseus]]. Strangely enough, the mission won't start if you are wearing anything on your head at all (which includes glasses, hats, and even a balaclava). An hour or two before the appointment time, head over to Tom Goldberg's workplace. Enter without a weapon drawn and don't attack anyone. Walk to the [[Karen (GTA IV) |receptionist]]'s desk and she will call Goldberg to find out if he's available.

Strangely enough, the mission won't start if Niko is wearing anything on his head at all (which includes glasses, hats, and even a balaclava).

Walk to the [[Karen (GTA IV)|receptionist]]'s desk and she will call Goldberg to find out if he's available.
   
Follow the receptionist to Tom's office and watch the short [[cutscene]]. After that, listen to some interesting lines and when you're ready, stand up. Be careful that you do not wait too long to stand up, since Goldberg eventually will respond to Niko's awkward answers and non responsive attitude by calling security, which will force you to fight your way out. Take out your weapon and point it at Goldberg. After he tells you where the files are, retreive them and shoot Goldberg.

Pulling out a weapon without pointing it at Goldberg will elicit a variety of reactions from Goldberg, depending on the weapon used, including:
   
There is also the hard way of simply busting your way out with firepower. At any time during the interview, stand up and equip a weapon, and simply shoot him straight in the head. Grab the files left in the office. Once the receptionist comes in screaming, grab a [[Assault Rifle]] or a [[Carbine Rifle]] if you have it. If not, a shotgun is pretty good at times, but lacks long range ability. Blast your way out of Goldberg's office and move to the lobby - ''or'' you can shoot out the window in the office and drop down (it's not far), bypassing the lobby entirely - you'll just have to worry about losing your wanted level. If you feel like shooting up the lobby, the guards will have covered the door to the office, and they are now swarming the area. A three star or a two star wanted level (it can change to a two-star level at rare occasions) will now appear. Shoot the guard at the top of the stairs and he will fall down in a very bloody way down those steps. The top door is locked, so you will have to make your way two floors down to get out. Try not to shoot the cops, or else the [[NOOSE]] team and rarely the [[Federal Bureau of Investigation#Grand Theft Auto IV|FIB]] will be involved and make the escape harder. Once outside, grab a fast vehicle and evade the cops. A fast car should be used since the cops have a lot of vehicles being deployed. A parked sport car, such as the Comet, makes everything a lot easier.

*[[Knife]] - Goldberg will ask Niko if he is interested in camping, and then ask if he got the knife from [[The Serrated Edge]].

*[[Weapons in GTA IV|Any gun]] - Goldberg will say that they are lawyers, and they do not need guns, also mentioning that "guns don't kill people, video games do".

*[[Molotov Cocktail]] - Goldberg will warn Niko that the office has a non-smoking policy, but tells him that it is fine if the smoke calms him down, and, after asking Niko if he has ADD, offers him a "mild amphetamine".

*[[Grenade]] - Goldberg will tell Niko that if the grenade goes off, he will be able to sue the person who sold it to him, suggesting a further discussion following the interview.

Francis McReary and Niko Bellic

Final Interview is a mission in Grand Theft Auto IV given to Niko Bellic by Francis McReary.

OverviewEdit

Francis tells Niko that a lawyer, Tom Goldberg, has evidence for a case against him for corruption. Francis wants the dirt he has on himself and for Goldberg to be gotten rid of, but Goldberg has hired bodyguards and rides in limos which make a "normal assault" impossible. Thus, Francis wants Niko to eliminate Goldberg by applying for the firm through an interview.

Mission ObjectivesEdit

Part 1Edit

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to an Internet cafe
  • Use the internet book an interview
  • Leave the Internet cafe

Part 2Edit

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to the reception
  • Follow the receptionist to Goldberg's office
  • Intimidate Goldberg
  • Retrieve the files
  • Kill Goldberg
  • Lose The Cops (Only if the player kill Goldberg with a gun)
  • Take the files to Francis

EnemiesEdit

WalkthroughEdit

Part 1Edit

Head over to a TW@ Internet Café and log on a terminal. Use the internet to find the ad for Goldberg's lawyer firm. The player also can check his e-mail and he will see an e-mail from Francis with a direct link to the firm's website. When on the website, spend a little time reading Niko's funny resume, then send it to the company. Niko will have the number to the company on his cell Phone when he is done. Leave the cafe and now the player must wait until one of the lawyers call.

Part 2Edit

Soon the lawyers will call for an appointment. Get a nice suit and smart shoes from Perseus or from the wardrobe at any safehouse if the player bought one already. Strangely enough, the mission won't start if Niko is wearing anything on his head at all (which includes glasses, hats, and even a balaclava). An hour or two before the appointment time, head over to Tom Goldberg's workplace. Enter without a weapon drawn and don't attack anyone. Walk to the receptionist's desk and she will call Goldberg to find out if he's available.

Follow the receptionist to Tom's office and watch the short cutscene. After that, listen to some interesting lines and when the player is ready, stand up. Be careful to not wait too long to stand up, because Goldberg eventually will react to Niko's strange behavior and non responsive attitude by calling security, which will make mission harder to complete. Take out any weapon and point it at Goldberg.

Pulling out a weapon without pointing it at Goldberg will elicit a variety of reactions from Goldberg, depending on the weapon used, including:

  • Knife - Goldberg will ask Niko if he is interested in camping, and then ask if he got the knife from The Serrated Edge.
  • Baseball Bat - Goldberg will mention baseball being a great American pastime and that the firm has a softball team and that they like to take group showers and "get sweaty together".
  • Any gun - Goldberg will say that they are lawyers, and they do not need guns, also mentioning that "guns don't kill people, video games do".
  • Molotov Cocktail - Goldberg will warn Niko that the office has a non-smoking policy, but tells him that it is fine if the smoke calms him down, and, after asking Niko if he has ADD, offers him a "mild amphetamine".
  • Grenade - Goldberg will tell Niko that if the grenade goes off, he will be able to sue the person who sold it to him, suggesting a further discussion following the interview. Goldberg then suggests that they should let Modupe (the security guard) play with it for a while and "see what happens".
  • Rocket Launcher - Goldberg will say that he has only seen such weapons on TV, and then mentions that holding one in a court will discourage anyone from arguing against him.

After he tells Niko where the files are, retrieve them and kill Goldberg.

The easier way to do this, is by using a Knife to stealth kill Goldbert, leaving the player with no wanted level. Slash his upper body to kill him. Then knife the window without curtains to break it. Jump out of it and steal a getaway car. Or the player can simply run out.

The hard way is simply busting your way out with firepower. At any time during the interview, stand up and equip a weapon, and simply shoot him straight in the head. Grab the files left in the office. Once the receptionist comes in screaming, grab a Assault Rifle or a Carbine Rifle if the player have it. If not, a Shotgun is pretty good at times, but lacks long range ability. Blast your way out of Goldberg's office and move to the lobby - or the player can shoot out the window in the office and drop down (it's not far), bypassing the lobby entirely - he will just have to worry about losing his wanted level. If the player feel like shooting up the lobby, the guards will have covered the door to the office, and they are now swarming the area. A three star or a two star wanted level (it can change to a two-star level at rare occasions) will now appear. Shoot the guard at the top of the stairs and he will fall down in a very bloody way down those steps. The top door is locked, so the player will have to make his way two floors down to get out. Try not to shoot the cops, or else the NOOSE team and rarely the FIB will be involved and make the escape harder. Once outside, grab a fast vehicle and evade the cops. A fast car should be used since the cops have a lot of vehicles being deployed. A parked sport car, such as the Comet, makes everything a lot easier.

A safer, though potentially longer method is in using the nearby subway. Enter the tunnel by the law offices and board a train. It will take the player out of range and "lose" his wanted level.

If the player miss the interview for any reason, it will be rescheduled for six hours later.

AftermathEdit

Liberty Tree NewspaperEdit

"A lawyer, Tom Goldberg, was murdered in his high security Algonquin office today.

  • In the beta, this mission was named Small Fish in Big Pond and the player was able to go to Goldberg's office and kill him even without going to the internet cafe and submitting a resume.
  • When the player shoot the guard at the top of the stairs, he will roll down and use the Wilhelm Scream.
  • The second part of this mission takes place around the same time as TLAD mission "This Shit's Cursed", as a news story on the radio speaks of Tom Goldberg's death afterwards. Which is also in the same timeline as Chinese Takeout despite the fact that TBoGT storyline and events do not happen until after the bank mission. Although the player could do this mission after Three Leaf Clover, which would make more sense to the aforementioned missions.
  • Before patch 1.4, in his resume, Niko writes that he went to Bullworth Academy in England, which was a reference to the game Bully. After the patch is was changed to Bulford Academy.
  • Niko's resume also subtly refers to the work he has been doing in Liberty City, citing his work in "manslaughter, homicide, drug dealing, extortion, racketeering, and grand theft auto", as well as the work he did before arriving in America, with "drafted immigration documentation, and accelerated customs procedures for clients" and "working in war-torn areas to assist those most badly affected". It also mentions his employers, as "Dealing with emerging markets in the West Indies. Particularly Jamaica and Puerto Rico". It even mentions some of the basic abilities Niko demonstrates, with "Shooting, boxing, running, swimming to a professional level".
  • In the first cutscene of this mission, Francis will tell Niko to get a suit for the Interview. He will still say this even if Niko is already wearing one.
  • If the player blocks Karen from entering the double doors, by standing against them, she will keep walking against them for about 3-5 real life minutes, then despawn, and respawn right outside the office where the interview would be held.
