In New York City, Jessica is helping to develop a mystery board game for Marathon Toys, run by legendary eccentric Edgar Greenstreet, although Meredith Delaney tells Jessica she is really running the company. Meredith fires a long-time Marathon employee. Meredith's husband Devery McFarlane tells her he knows about the affair and asks when he'll be fired. Two ad agencies are competing for the Marathon account; Meredith is having an affair with the president of one, Boris Steloff, until she sees him kiss an agent of the other he is trying to hire on her orders. Only Meredith's longtime secretary seems unqualifiedly loyal. When Meredith is found dead in Greenstreet's high-security lab, Brian Singer's fingerprints are on the murder weapon. Written by
