Episode Summary

EDIT
Once More Unto the Breach
AIRED:
When he gets to work in the morning, Rob and his staff scramble to create scripts for The Mountainmen, while detectives snoop around LGT, investigating the disappearance of Kendall Gifford. Rob and his staff try to untangle the sticky web created by Sandra Cassandra's sexual harassment lawsuit against Casting VP Malcolm Laffley and LGT, and Parker Meridian's demand for a top-dollar renegotiation. Meanwhile, Development VP Lori Volpone proposes a miniseries on the life of Nikolai 'the Knife' Krasnakov, the son of a Russian mob boss--a risk to be sure, but a possible ratings booster, nonetheless. As if the pressure on Rob is not enough, his wife Cecile adds to it when she announces that she wants to have another baby, even though they are both past 40. While shooting is continuously interrupted by Yolanda's Tourette's Syndrome on the set of Puerto Vallarta, Lori is off with super agent Brad Advail, negotiating a story-rights deal with the Russian gangster. After going head to head with E.L.'s trophy wife, Lydia Luddin, Rob receives the next Mountainmen script, anonymously delivered by the missing Kendall Gifford. Sure, the script is inflammatory, advocating tax revolution, but it is still more interesting than the rehashed, predictable material provided by the stand-in scribes, and Rob decides to run with it, because the ratings, after all, can only go up. The relentless detectives are not considering scripts or ratings though, and call the FBI in for help. When she returns, Lori's answering machine yields a haunting, cryptic message to cease and desist when it comes to the story of the Knife. But Rob is doing much better at home, where, after secretly flushing Cecile's birth control pills down the toilet, he is working on giving her the baby she wants.moreless
