Ned and Michael meet for breakfast at the Metro Court. Ned wants Michael to keep an open mind about the Charles St. project. He introduces Michael to Jim Harvey (played by Greg Evigan), a developer, who walks off the elevator. Harvey thinks Charles St. is full of diamonds in the rough and presents his plans, which includes an ELQ arena. Ned is impressed, while Michael wonders what happens to the residents who call that area home. Over at the bar, Julian finds Olivia to ask about spending time with Leo. Olivia pushes back. He reminds her he's been exonerated and is now the legit owner of Charlie's. He wants Leo to be proud to call him his father, which he is and not Ned. He walks off and steals some of Ned's bacon as he passes by. Harvey promises Ned and Michael they will work with the people in the community as their plans move forward. After he leaves, Michael challenges Ned on the ethics of the deal. Their bickering gets heated. Olivia tries to referee, but Ned announces he's quitting the family company. Michael says the door is always open and leaves. Olivia thinks ELQ's loss might be the city's gain and suggests Ned run for mayor.
