  1. The discussion at the beginning about Council vs White Court authority gave me some interesting thoughts (apologies in advance for what will be a long comment).

    If you want to get into technical terms, there's probably a couple factors to think about (indirect spoilers for some of the later novels). For starters, depending on where in the timeline the story is, the Council is effectively at war with all of the Vampire Courts, and even without that, almost no Warden would be disposed to like or trust a WCV. Additionally, the plot of White Night proves that mortal practitioners fall under the protection of the White Council, so employing mortals to break into London's home could be construed as hostile action, even if they claim "internal affairs". White Night also shows that the White King isn't too keen on that "hostile action" either. If the WCVs really wanted to be above board, they'd go through the Accords to London, which would almost certainly result in some challenge or duel overseen by a third party. A duel which would be hilarious to see, but almost assuredly wouldn't be a straight-up fight.

    And as a final interesting bullet point, on that "call my supervisor" conversation, again, depending on where in the time of the books this could be taking place, Montgomery's supervisor is probably Harry "the building was on fire and it wasn't my fault" Dresden or Carlos "it hurts to be this good" Ramirez, who I'm sure would have very interesting opinions on such a phone call.
