A Boston immigration advocate informs Nathan about Russel and Gloria Pan's Golden Panda knock-off fashion sweat shop, which pays far less than minimum wage and uses dangerous food supplements to keep the workers working extra-long hours. To take down the Pans, Nate poses as fashion investor Jacques Bouvier, who recruits 'talented designer' Gloria. They scam $50,000 from them, but Russel turns out to be an alias of Triad big wig Nicholas Chow, so now they're up against the powerful Chinese gangsters. Written by KGF Vissers
