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.
