  Summary  

The show begins with the police investigating threats against Susannah and her family. Susannah is advised by the police to stay home. The firm's traders do not know about the extortion attempt and proceed to speculate on why she is not at work. To the irritation of the officer investigating Susannah's case, Adam pulls rank on him to in an attempt to ensure the case gets special attention. While at home, Susannah wrestles with her dilemma on whether or not to cave in to the extortionist's demands.

Adam dumps a record company IPO he expects to be a money loser on Jack and asks Grant to find a way for the firm to hedge itself on the record company offering. After insulting the lead broker for the record company IPO, Jack later approaches him with a request to restructure the deal. After failing with the lead on the record company deal, Jack and Donald approach the company directly with their deal restructuring proposal. As soon as the record company starts trading, the firm's traders, who see it as a dog, sell it as quickly as they can. As the stock price of the record company rises, the position that Adam ordered Grant to set up to bet on its fall loses money quickly.

Ann is approached by a new but potentially high-risk client that Jack met at a poker game. Later, the wife of Ann's new client meets with her to tell her that her husband is an unemployed compulsive gambler. Ann later decides not to place the high-risk call options order he gave her. As it rises, she becomes distraught and runs to Jack for consolation. After the compulsive gambler's call drops in value, he angrily storms the trading floor when he finds out the value of the call option he asked Ann to place would have caused huge losses.

Chris receives a recommendation from Monika and takes an opposite course of action to what she recommended. Adam later dresses Chris down for not following her recommendation.

Sally discovers some unusual buying activity in the stock of the company the extortionist told Susannah to recommend. She approaches the executing broker to reveal the name of the client but he refuses. At Sally's behest, Monika looks through investment newsletters for situations where an analyst has reversed his recommendation in a short time frame and finds another analyst at another firm who has probably been extorted. Sally meets the analyst but he refuses to admit any extortion has taken place. Later, he arranges a private night meeting in a park with Susannah. The extortionist is a Russian mobster. The other analyst tells Susannah that he initially did not comply with the mobsters until they broke his leg.

Ann discovers a biotechnology firm that might be able to help treat Jack's father's lung cancer.
