THE DANGER ZONE
Zach informs Aidan that he’s sending him to Darfur to rescue a kidnapped Cambias employee. Aidan retracts his initial refusal of the assignment after Slater points out he’s the best man for the job. Zach gives Kendall his assurance that he has no ulterior motive in giving Aidan the assignment. Greenlee beseeches Zach not to send Aidan to Darfur and he eventually relents. Tad questions if Aidan is taking the dangerous assignment as a way of punishing himself. Aidan is more determined than ever to go on the rescue mission when he finds out the man he’s being sent to rescue is Jake Martin. Zach and Aidan keep a secret about Jake. Aidan assures Greenlee he’ll return from the mission but she can’t shake the bad feeling she has.
A manipulative Annie’s fable sends Ryan straight to Richie with a warning. Richie knows Annie is up to something and suspects that she lied about the intruder. The ladies of Fusion watch the footage of their day of pole dancing and all agree that it would be disastrous for business if the tape was ever made public – an observation Annie takes note of. Annie later plants the footage of the women pole dancing in a presentation reel with the belief that she’ll score points with Ryan after she’s fired for her innocent “mistake.”
SEEING THE LIGHT?
