Due to her destructive lifestyle, she also loses an important account with a department store. Dr. Caspian gives Georgie an odd exercise. He has Georgie tell Teddy that she’s Georgie’s hero. Later, Dr. Caspian tells Georgie to be her own hero, then asks if she needs a hug. The hug turns into a kiss. The attraction between Frankie and Lucky increases.

They talk and Lucky decides to resume training and fight the boxer. Big Al’s parole is denied. While visiting him in jail, Alex sees the governor and his wife on a prison tour.
