Episode One (3/24/18)

Summary: Del and Lorraine are on a first date, and Lorraine is talking a mile a minute, too nervous to let him get a word in edgewise. Everyone at the restaurant, it turns out, are terrified of Del - his nickname is "The Butcher of 13th Street." Lorraine also has an unflattering nickname - "Insane Lorraine." Though hers isn't because of accusations of mob-related murders like his is. And after he tells her that, he begins berating himself for being so stupid and ruining the date. But Lorraine sticks around. Moments later, a gunman bursts in, gunning for Del...

Episode Two (4/7/18) - Playoffs Round 1!

Summary: As the gunman advances, Del scoops up the waitress as he produces a gun and kills the gunman. He then presses the gun into the shell-shocked waitress' hand and tells everyone she killed the gunman and saved everybody; she's too stunned and scared to contradict him. Del and Lorraine leave in a Lyft. The friendly Lyft driver is terrified as Del confesses to Lorraine that he did in fact kill the gunman and has killed a lot of people and that's why he's called the Butcher of 13th Street. And Lorraine... is relieved. She confesses that she has some murders in her past, too. And then suddenly a car, the driver intent on killing Del, cuts them off rams into them...

Episode Three (4/21/18) - Playoffs Round 2!

Summary: Del has dispatched with the driver who tried to ram him and stolen his car. He and Lorraine continue on their date - with Chris, their Lyft driver, in tow. They arrive at a bowling alley and invite the nervous Chris to join them. Del tells Chris he can either get the cops involved and end up in a car trunk, or join them for a fun night and having his car replaced. Del even arranges a double-date by hiring Tiffany, a woman he knows, to join them. As Chris finally begins to relax, a man enters, demanding to have things out with Del...

Episode Four (4/28/18) - Playoffs Round 3!

Summary: The man is Chris DiMucci, Del's brother, and he demands that Del come take care of some family business right now - the Russians are gunning for the DiMucci family - but Del refuses. He wants to continue with his date. As Chris prepares to kill Del, Lorraine enters, flips out... and nearly kills Chris. Meanwhile, Kris and Tiffany discover they have more in common than they realized. And Kris has an idea of where they can all go to both escape police scrutiny and continue their date...

Episode Five (5/5/18) - Playoffs Round 4!

Summary: Kris takes everyone to an improv show in a little place on Hollywood Blvd., where he invites Tiffany to join his improv team. Del threateningly insists that Kris have his team take the improv suggestion Lorraine came up with before the show: "Kittens doing trigonometry." Nobody else is there to watch the show... except, by coincidence, Lorraine's sister, Caroline, and her husband, Drew. Caroline is furious to see Lorraine there: she's supposed to be at home watching their ailing dog, who needs constant supervision. Lorraine insists she deserves a night out. As the sisters argue, the smarmy Drew, who is a defense attorney, introduces himself to an unimpressed Del. As the show begins and the improv team asks for suggestions, Drew shouts out "Kittens doing trigonometry," infuriating Lorraine... but Kris smoothly says he heard "Steel pineapples" - another of Lorraine's suggestions from earlier. Meanwhile, Tiffany and Del come to the sudden realization that this largely-unpatronized business on Hollywood Blvd. that has no visible means of staying afloat must be a front - and indeed, the bartender, Piotr, turns out to be a Russian mobster. Before Del can leave, Piotr captures Lorraine and holds her at gunpoint, his goons taking aim at Del. Del tells Piotr this can go two ways: either he can let Lorraine go and everyone can go back to having a nice night... or they can do things the hard way. When Piotr refuses to comply, the lights go out and gunfire is heard...
