Gambling addict Brandon multiplies his addition by hiring a school bookie, Jeff, in order to pay off $1,500 of losses to Duke who's now out to get Brandon. Meanwhile, David finally realizes the true nature of the music industry when Serge continues to ignore his hip-hop material and forces him to record a repetitive, syrupy ballad. David goes along with it, but Curtis Bray does not like the new tune and outright terminates David's recording contract. Finally seeing the egotistical, two-faced shark that Curtis Bray really is, and the self-serving hack Serge is, David leaves Icon Records and goes back to apologize to Steve for the way he treated him. Kelly's eating disorder worsens when she starts taking diet pills. Also, Andrea tries to ease Dylan's depression over his father's murder by asking him if she can do an editorial on him.

Duke's Bad Boy (#3.23)
5 November 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

So in this episode they deal with Brandon's "addiction". While I found the story very stupid, I like how they ended up wrapping it up, it was pretty realistic.

As always it was fun to follow David and his recording. His producer sure messed it up for him by making him sing a commercial song and not his hip hop. Still, it was very fun to watch him during the recording. I hope he will soon get another chance.

The story about Dylan writing an article about himself with Andrea was also a good part. It is both a good idea and Andrea and Dylan whom we usually don't see together actually had a pretty good connection.
