Governor Riley
Lizzie Murray ...
Foster Care Lady


Now that Charlie and Caitlin have finally embraced being a couple, it's torture to have to hide their relationship, and even more so when they're in the mayor's office. Randall wines and dines equally spoiled governor Riley, leaving Charlie and Caitlin to make his vane promises work. They fear exposure when the security videos must solve the disappearance of the $100,000 celebrity spectacles the mayor bought for his wife. Carter is tickled pink with his first foster son, but can't stop his crying, until Paul offers to help. Written by KGF Vissers
