After Jessie's mother remarries, Jessie's devious stepbrother Eric, arrives in town from New York City to stay and he has more than Jessie annoyed when, instead of being friendly, he uses blackmail to get what he wants from the gang, especially when he extorts money from Zack by threatening to inform Mr. Belding about Zack cutting school to go to a baseball game. Zack tries to get even with the sociopath Eric by setting him up on a date with Lisa and has him drive Mr. Belding's new car so Zack can take a photo to blackmail him. But it backfires when Lisa drives the car instead and gets into an accident. Written by
