Dorian is further disheartened when David phones her with the news that he has agreed to become the company’s official spokesperson on Tuesday, April 7, which leads her right into Ray’s awaiting arms and lips. Unbeknownst to either of them, however, is the fact that Jack snapped a picture of the pair lip locking. Luckily, Ray manages to foil Jack’s attempt to blackmail his aunt with the incriminating photo. But later, Dorian decides to ruffle David’s feathers by sending him the photo, which Langston accidentally sees. On Thursday, April 9, Ray warns a dismissive Lola about driving a wedge between Langston and Markko. Meanwhile, Dorian confides in Langston that she is starting to see the girl’s uncle in a new light.
