Sharon and Summer arrive. Sharon tells Neil about his photographer the sadist. Neil apologizes profusely. Sharon says she'll sit in at the next shoot and keep them in line. Leslie later tells Neil that having an advocate on shoots would be a good idea so they don't get sued. Nearby, Summer thanks Sharon for being so fierce at the shoot - it reminded her of her mom.
