The connection
29 December 2010 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Cam and Ben are meeting with their partner, David Kaplan, who is excited by the prospect of the men being able to come through with the order from Haraki. There is a party being planned, in order to celebrate their good fortune. A chef, karaoke, and music will be provided and it promises to be a great night.

Ben is seen arriving to work looking at Barney's from across the street. His supervisor, Alex brings him out of his reverie. Ben is tense at work because Cam, looking for vintage tee shirts that are needed for the big project with Haraki, has no luck in finding them. Cam keeps calling Ben at work, something that irritates Alex. As no solution is found, Ben decides to go and meet Cam at a store where he was sure he could have found the merchandise.

Rene is upset because he cannot locate Flaco. He must get his money from this man, that he knows stole it from him. When he inquires about Flaco's whereabout, no one seems to know where he is hanging out. Rene goes to confession. He has no qualms about telling the priest about how he got the money, in the first place. Finally, Rene learns that Flaco wants to meet with him at a public school playground. As Rene arrives with his buddies, he sees Flaco has brought three bodyguards too. When Rene asks for his money, Flaco denies he stole it, but Rene surprises him by punching him in the face. Flaco and his friends show no reaction.

Rachel is seen waking up. She has slept at Darren's. She cannot help asking about the kiss exchanged by her lover and the male guest at the party they attended. Darren has no recollection of the incident; he figures it must have been the liquor he drank, more than being bisexual. Rachel is late, so he volunteers to take her to Connecticut, where she has to meet with a carpenter that is working on a commission. After they see that man, Darren surprises her by showing the house where he grew up.

Ben, exasperated with Cam's inability to find the merchandise, decides to tell Alex he needs one hour to solve his problem. He walks out of his job to go to the store where he figures they will get the tee shirts needed. The salesgirl, Julie, is quite accommodating, but still, the price for each shirt is too high. Ben asks if he could get a discount because of the volume of what they intend to buy, but the discount is minimal. Ben, who has enjoyed meeting Julie, invites her to the party. She promises to come. Ben goes back to work, but Alex fires him on the spot.

The party is a great success. Julie comes in and it is clear she has liked Ben. The two of them have a great time together. Julie comes through for Ben when she reveals she knows a man that can help Ben in locating the merchandise. This source is the same person where her boss buys from. Julie and Ben are seen at a warehouse as the episode ends in front of a mountain of used tee shirts that are going to be sold as used clothes.

Jonathan Levine directed the episode which was written by Ian Edelmen and Zeth Zvi Rosenfeld. This excellent series, depicts the lives of the young people trying to make it in a city that can be tough for all entrepreneurs while rewarding them with the opportunity to excel in ways that only in New York can be so rewarding. The creator of the series, Ian Edelman catches the pulse and rhythm of its people like no one has done in recent memory. Add to that the brilliant young cast that makes this series a winner.
