First thing he tells George to do is lose the music that he has blaring in the restaurant. He makes his rounds meeting with the employeesold and new. He stops by the kitchen to see Christoph. Louis flatters him with the big plans that he has for him, as long as there are no more piano problems!

Peter comes in wants to know what is going on. He is shocked that she was serious about doing this. Rita tells Alex that he needs to end things with Andrea and show Louis that he is loyal brother. He tells her that he refuses to give up the woman that he loves to satisfy Louis. Peter agrees and tells her that giving in to Louis is only going to make things worse.

Andrea thanks Jessica for all of her help and letting her come back. Jessica tells her that it is the least she could do after her little episode. They agree to call the score even after all that they've been through together. Jessica goes to her room when she see's Alex pull up. He tells Andrea what his mother just didand Alex informs her that he thinks the Louis situation is going to get worse for all of them before it gets better!
