It’s merc jobs aplenty as Jim
settles back in at the office. Kate
struggles, as her dad seems to take over. Kate
arranges for Matt
to pair up (for the first time), sending them into the electronic gaming world.
Posing as marketing gurus, Matt and Rick are charged with finding out whose leaking info to a rival company. They’re not thrilled with the idea but it gives them a chance to air their competitiveness … who will solve this first?
Kate is rewarded for putting in the hard yards when a debtor turns out to be a beautician. Forced to go through with treatments while attempting to identify the debtor, she’s soon reminded: ‘beauty must bear a pinch’. The results are worth it, both personally and professionally.
Jim’s charmed by a high profile footballer who’s insurance company questions his claim. The guy’s got everything: big house, girls, hero worship, why wouldn’t his claim be legit? But it’s small gestures that often reveal true character as Jim continues investigating.
Kate suggests that Chad goes to court with her to learn how to conduct an examination order. Chad’s relaxed vibe is short lived when it turns out Minnie is one of the debtors. Chad is torn between ‘fessing up to Kate and covering for his girl, but Minnie comes up with a plan that no one expects … one that has lasting consequences.
At the end of the day, Kate debates the meaning of ‘funch’ (fun lunch) with Lily, who is spending all her spare time taking intimate phone calls. Topics like these and ongoing comments (from all quarters) about Kate’s uptight-nature leads to her demonstrating her spontaneity with Matt. The result is a surprise to them both, but no one more than Emma who walks in on the kiss. She quietly retreats, head spinning, Matt and Kate none the wiser she’d ever been there.
