In Los Angeles, we learn that if one is going to work from home, and the owner of your business is calling you on your phone, you ought to put your clothes on, or at least put your shirt on, especially if the owner has only one demand of you as Chief Operating Officer and head of the Legal Department. Apparently, the joy that the former and future jewelry maker, Quinn, brings to the man with tens of millions of dollars to lose, Carter Walton, makes putting one’s entire reputation, life, money, family, company and business. What is that power? Sexual desire, at least for those men under the spell of Quinn, or those women under the spell of Carter, or whatever.

Liam is making a better case for himself than Justin is, yet all he is getting as a reward is a trip from L.A. County Jail to the Maximum Security system, whatever that means to Detective Baker, the Chief of the L.A. police department.
