At WPK, Caleb is calling shots on his phone. Somebody named Jesse Roberts has overdosed. Caleb snares Ella to get her up to speed on what's going on with this kid. Jesse is stable and at ULA. Ella connects this storyline for us to Lauren. Thanks, Ella. Would've never thought of that.
At Coal, Violet enters to warn Auggie that Mason, the owner, is on his way in. He walks in with Marcello and... is that Rick Fox? Never mind. I've already stopped caring whether it is or not. Mason/Rick Fox is eager to see what Marcello has come up with for new entrees. Marcello lays out a number of plates in front of him, to which Mason complains they look too small of portions. Marcello gets a look of panic on his face before declaring he's got one entrée up his sleeve that he thought of last night. He then details Auggie's recipe right in front of him. Auggie is simmering in his own juices and asks Marcello through his teeth what kind of sauce he'll be using. Marcello responds with Auggie's saffron idea. Rick Fox probably couldn't care less and probably only understood one word out of all of that foodie talk, so he agrees to see what Marcello's got and they walk off together. Violet comes up to clarify that "that's, like, cooking plagiarism." Violet, that's, like, so insightful. Auggie rationalizes that he needs to follow the chain of command if he wants to ever get promoted. Violet isn't listening to all that jive. "From here, it looks like your chain is being yanked." From here, it looks like Violet just yanked it again.
Riley is being the annoying girlfriend already, as she and Jonah arrive at the wedding. Riley's still asking about what's bothering him. She can sense something's up. You think? You're not even married yet, and your fiancé is already trying to avoid you. Riley gets the great idea that they should try to have fun together today. Jonah grudgingly agrees. Who doesn't like fun?
ULA. Ella walks in to Jesse's hospital room. The guy looks a mess. Ella first makes sure the guy's OK and then tries to find out exactly what happened. Suddenly, it occurs to Ella to ask if Jesse has any allergies. Jesse is allergic to penicillin. YES! There's your spin right there. Ella's executive decision on this is to lock Jesse in his room and cut off his contact to the outside world. She implores him one final time to keep away from the nose candy, otherwise he'll "power lunch with River Phoenix." Jesse responds with a blank look. Ella, incredulously to herself: "Who's River Phoenix? Oh, God, kill me now." Love you, Ella. Lauren enters the room, wondering who paged her. Ella did, of course. Lauren and Ella step out of the room together so Ella can ask a favor. It's important that they keep this story from breaking, because Jesse is the biggest tween icon client WPK has. He's supposedly as big for them as Zac Efron and the Jonas Brothers rolled in one. She wants Lauren to fudge documents to say it was a penicillin reaction. Lauren is not cool with that at all. Then Ella starts doing her thing. Maybe WPK will make a nice donation to the hospital or Jesse could come read to kids in the children's ward when he gets better. Ella then plays the money card. She can offer Lauren a few thousand dollars in incentive. Let's allow the part-time hooker to ponder finances for a bit.
