Episode Summary

Oswald's Dad Returns
Oswald's estranged father gets out of prison after a ten-year sentence, but Oswald doesn't want to see him. Drew looks for a part-time job to pay off his credit card debts. Oswald tells him that his father was hired by a real estate company, and asks his dad to help Drew get a job. Mr. Harvey also buys Oswald a bike, and they seem to be making a connection. Drew fails to make a sale for several days. The boss threatens to fire him unless he sells something by the end of the day. Lewis agrees to buy one of the cheaper properties, which a divorcing couple is supposedly trying to unload. He pays cash, so there can be no trace if there is a problem. Drew learns that his boss is a scam artist; he has sold the same property dozens of times, and it is unlivable because of high levels of radioactivity. Drew tells Lewis, but they do not call the police because they do not want to send Oswald's dad back to prison. Lewis and Kate fail in an attempt to get his money back. Drew confirms that Mr. Harvey is in on the scam. Mr. Harvey promises to return Lewis's money by eight o'clock that night. When he doesn't show on time, Drew and Lewis tell Oswald the truth. Mr. Harvey claims to have Lewis's money, but instead just gives him a sack full of items belonging to an old man that he mugged. Oswald is mortified, but decides to give his father a head start before calling the cops.moreless
