At her mother's request, Amanda reluctantly hires Chas Russell, Hillary's young fiancé, as a junior executive, in which he starts wooing Amanda and slacks off, leaving all his work with Alison. After being shunned by everyone, Sydney moves back into her old apartment at Melrose and continues operating her call-girl business. But Sydney's problems only get worse when Lauren is released from jail and goes back on their business arrangement when she demands a profit margin of $15,000 from Sydney as payback for running her business. Meanwhile, Sarah Owens goes on another photo shoot with Jo on Jake's boat and when they come back late, Sarah's abusive boyfriend, Hank, beats her and Jo too when she intervenes, which prompts Sarah to settle with Jo for the time being.

Oh little red riding hood! Very sexy and memorable scene with Marcia Cross!
24 June 2007 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This episode of "Melrose Place" called "Imperfect Strangers" sticks out in my mind as very memorable for one main reason that the scene of Marcia Cross in a silk red bra and panties! Well anyway the episode is important for more reasons, mainly because Kimberly(Marcia Cross) is on a comeback trail to get Michael she simply pushes Sydney out of the picture. That only adds more bad news for Sydney as she is robbed of her call girl business only to get desperate and she has to take up stripping! Also Amanda is in hot competition with her mother(great guest spot from Linda Gray) for a new young male employee. And as always the episode has the common drama of problems and worry and frustration. Yet the day is made when Kimberly invites Michael into the medical dress room to have a surprise underneath for him! Oh she looks so good every time I see her, especially in this scene of her wearing a silk red bra and panties set! So sexy I just knew Marcia was the most elegant and attractive actress around she proved it here well before her "Desperate Housewives" days by seducing Michael. Overall good episode with Linda Gray as a guest star and Marcia Cross makes the day with her red color showing.
