Episode Summary

Ian Dancer gives the executive committee some tough news. They need to clean up their image before they go public. Kathy promises to sue the firm for wrongful dismissal. Because Jack asked her to quit after the insider trading fiasco, she cannot collect unemployment. Jack refuses to write her a letter saying he fired her. If he does she can technically be arrested for insider trading, and the image of the firm will be badly hurt. Ian advises Jack to hire her back, knowing that any lawsuit would reveal the details of the insider trading, which could land all three of them in jail. Jack hires her back. Susannah cannot sign a lockup deal with Gardner/Ross for fear of losing custody of her daughter. She is charged with the task of finding her own replacement. She calls Monica back in to ask her to join, but she seems less than enthusiastic about it. At the GR party Ian finds out about the firm trying to nab Monica as the new head of their Research department. Monica finds out Ian's firm has withdrawn the bid and blames Susannah for playing God with her life. Grant shows up for his date with the computer technician, but is so nervous he can't talk to her. She waits at the bar, then storms out mad after she's stood up. Grant races back to GR to beg D'Arby for help, he suggests he emails her, and promises to help him the next day. D'Arby's attempt to bring Grant and her back together, backfires after he does all the talking and falls for her. After going out for a drink, he tells Grant and he quits. Marty goes against Sally's wishes and invests heavily in the Deutschmark, unfortunately for him it begins to drop and he loses on the deal. At the GR party Marty excuses himself and tries to earn 6 million on the Nikkei so Sally won't fire him. Barb (Marty's wife) after drinking all night, confesses to Sally that Marty is in trouble. Sally orders Marty to go home. The DM continues to fall giving them an opportunity to cover their losses by investing heavily in the other European currencies in anticipation of a Bundesbank bailout. Adam is not happy with the plan to take Gardner/Ross public, and he's still reeling with disappointment from not being able to sell his shares and retire with his wife. Meanwhile, Ian not only wants Adam onboard, he wants Adam to become head of the firm. Sally is not pleased with the idea, the last thing she wants to do, is loose control of her bank to Adam. Monica comes back to GR and apologises for being so angry at Susannah, she finally believes her that she did not intentionally try to ruin her career. As she is signing the contracts to join Gardner/Ross Susannah tells her she has decided not to sue for custody of her daughter. She reveals that her husband is a better father, than she is a mother. Susannah decides to try and take the job at Ian's firm, but the two agree to trade. Susannah will stay at GR, and she will recommend Ian hire Monica. Gardner/Ross goes public and the stock goes into a free fall after someone witnesses Grant quit. D'Arby climbs a tree in order to get Grant to come back down, and come back to the bank. He promises never to see Magda again, if only Grant will be his friend again. Grant comes back to the company, Marty buys a whole tonne of GR shares from Ian at 2 under market price, before announcing to everyone that Grant is back! The show ends with Adam walking with Cedric Ross. He tells him he bought 380,000 shares. And tells him he feels it's a "good start"moreless
