Episode Summary

Episode 4
1993: Athena is getting ready for an audition. However, she feels pretty insecure about her acting. Gregory tries to coach her and make her more confident about her acting. After they rehearse and Gregory talks to her, she feels like she would be perfect playing Cora in "The Iceman Cometh." When Athena gets to the audition, she realizes that she's not auditioning for the role of Cora, but for the role of Maggie. She is not prepared for the new role at all. The director, Randy Gendel, leaves Athena feeling worthless. Gregory talks to Athena yet again and makes her feel like she should ask for a second chance. When she does get a second chance, it's not clear how far she'll have to go in order to win the role. Meanwhile, Carlito Rivera, Joe's brother, is trying to get a job working in the mailroom at Joe's firm. Joe is reluctant to help his brother out, figuring that Carlito would make him look bad. Teresa, the Office Manager, ends up hiring Carlito without talking to Joe about the matter. 2001: Athena is now a full-fledged star. She's famous and getting ready to promote her new CD on a talk show. Unfortunately, the show is running out of time and may not be able to fit Athena on. Gregory comes to Athena's rescue and gets everything fixed. Meanwhile, Josh has gotten busted for solicitation by a police officer pretending to be a hooker. Joe pulls some strings to help him out of jail. Josh isn't very worried about the fact that he was caught, he's more concerned with the fact that Beth could find out. 2008: Joe is still campaigning to win a spot on the city council. There also definitely seems to be more going on between Joe and his campaign manager, Frannie. Meanwhile, Athena is no longer the star that she once was, but she's trying to get her career back. She and Beth convince Josh to let her sing at the restaurant to help her make her come back. When it's time for Athena's performance, something off. Gregory's boyfriend, Logan, who is a New York City police officer, spots that she's as high as a kite.moreless
