Cons and CasesEdit
Gretchen asked Alice and Valerie to look into the angel investor who offered to put up the money for her new fashion start-up. They learned that Charles Bergman owned several sweatshops in Los Angeles. When they told Gretchen, she was devastated because she wouldn't be able to get started without that money. Alice offered to set her up with other potential investors, but when she called her about that, she learned that Ethan had put up the money, making her suspicious. She shared her concern with Ethan, but he brushed her off. Her concerns angered Gretchen, who believed Alice was trying to win Ethan back. Alice was ready to drop it, but then Tessa told her that all Gretchen's designs were ripped off of other designers. All the packages they sent out were going to the same address. The owner was Joel Hanson, whom they learned was Gretchen's husband and was the man in the picture she showed Alice of her angel investor. In order to get Ethan to believe it, she took him to see for himself.
Justine wanted to get Eddie out of Argosy and take down McLeland and Argosy. After the FBI arrested six of his lieutenants, McLeland went deeper underground. In order to draw him out, Ben posed as a member of the Department of Defense and Rhys set up a meeting between him and his contact with Argosy. Ben borrowed a weapon from the FBI and said he had 300 of them to sell. Ryan Gilbert wasn't able to make the deal, but said his boss could. Ben offered to meet with him. When Justine told Eddie of her plan to get him out of Argosy and take down McLeland, he revealed that he'd killed McLeland and was now in charge. He had Justine, Rhys, and Troy held captive while he met with Ben. Fortunately, Rhys was able to gain the upper hand and free them as the FBI agents Ben had brought with him jumped out and made arrests.
In order to get a deal with Matthew Keegan, Margot made a plan to steal him a very expensive bottle of scotch. She had Danny and Sophie do a security work-up on the place and see if the games were rigged. They learned that all the games were rigged to ensure house victory except the roulette wheel. They used a magnetic roulette wheel to cheat and win some money. Once they had a stockpile, Margot took some and asked for a shot of the scotch to get it out of the locked cage. Felicity then created a distraction while Margot switched the scotch bottle with a fake she'd brought. Unfortunately, she learned that Matthew Keegan had already made a deal with someone else, someone who knew he was looking despite him not telling anyone.
