SUMMARY: It's Alex's first day temping at a
high-powered talent agency, and the seemingly friendly Mary
Ellen shows him around. However, he is soon left alone with his
co-worker, the high-strung Eoin, who quickly disabuses Alex of
any notion that working at the agency will be any fun at all.
Long hours, no lunch break, and mad dashes to and from the
bathroom will be the norm. The agent Alex is supporting, Bobby,
is out of the office, leading Eoin to have to grab Alex's phone
and go into damage control mode when Alex commits the no-no of
letting the caller know Barry's not there. Alex gets a further
look at how things work when the agent Eoin supports, Amanda
Matters arrives, and nearly makes Eoin flog himself with his own
belt for some minor infraction. Still, Alex is chipper and ready
to make the best of things. When Mary Ellen informs them that
the person Alex is temping for is more ill than originally
thought and won't be coming back to the office for a long time,
Eoin is very upset to be stuck working with Alex.

EPISODE TWO (10/10/15)
SUMMARY: Eoin is stunned when Alex does something
nice for him, though the words "thank you" are foreign to his
vocabulary. Meanwhile, movie star Dash Mason flirts with ingenue
Chloe Cartwright, infuriating Amanda, who has been dating Dash.
Upset, she calls a meeting fellow agent Bobby Barrett and their boss, uber-agent Grant Worthington. Amanda
suggests they should drop Dash
from the agency, and is incensed when Grant simply reassigns him to be
Bobby's client. Both Dash and Bobby are bros-of-a-feather, and
Amanda icily proclaims that they deserve each other. After the
meeting, she takes out her frustrations on Eoin.

EPISODE THREE (10/17/15)
SUMMARY: Alex has a first date, but Eoin tells him
he can't leave until his agent leaves. Unbeknownst to Alex,
however, Bobby is staying in the office all night, watching the
game and getting drunk, because he broke up with his girlfriend
and has nowhere else to stay. At midnight, Alex finally checks
up on Bobby, who passes out on him, immobilizing Alex. The next
morning, Bobby apologizes - and tells Alex not to listen to Eoin.
Bobby thinks agenting doesn't need to be about yelling and
screaming and making people feel awful, and although the two are
very different, Alex and Bobby bond; Bobby offers to teach Alex
about sports, while Alex will take the uninitiated Bobby to the
theatre. Meanwhile, Eoin deals with a nonsensical series of
demands from Amanda.

EPISODE FOUR (4/9/16)
- PLAYOFFS ROUND 1!
SUMMARY: Alex has been “floating” as Amanda’s
assistant in Eoin’s absence, and she asks Alex to consider
making it a permanent arrangement. She’s livid that Eoin chose
to attend his mother’s funeral in person after she offered to
set up a live feed so he could stay at his desk. When Eoin
returns, he has finally had enough and blows up at Amanda. Eoin
reminds Alex that while they were trapped in the elevator
between episodes, they had talked about forming their own
agency, and he’s ready to move forward with the idea. Before
Alex can even answer him, Bobby grills him about Amanda’s
suspicious behavior and reveals that he’s asked HR to make Alex
his permanent assistant. Alex comes to the sinking realization
that nobody is on nobody’s side - but everyone expects him to be
on their side, as Amanda, Eoin, and Bobby literally play
tug-of-war with him until he collapses. Meanwhile, Bobby catches
Amanda snooping through DIE’s confidential files in preparation
to form her own agency.
