  • Episode Description
  • Gracen and Gracen find themselves in hot water over an unethical decision regarding the baby food that is produced by one of their subsidiary companies; Baby's Finest. Information was leaked from within the company and this leaves the company investigator wondering whether the timing of Jim Profit's arrival on the executive team of G&G is a coincidence, or whether the leak could be part of a sly plan from the mind of Jim Profit in order to expedite his progress through the ranks of upper-management at the company.moreless
