Robert, the Founder of Jason's firm, is skeptical over IonX and needs more information first. Meanwhile, the economy has worsened and Scott no longer wants to start a business with Nancy, forcing her into other alternatives -- namely, staying at IonX and selling it to prove her competence to Scott. Jason learns of more bad news about his grandfather, and finds out that he'll now have to cover all his medical bills -- and that motivates him to get this deal done at any cost. He analyzes the business in more detail and pitches David on its merits, but David is as skeptical as Robert was. As his friends Todd and Leonard get pressured to bring in a deal of their own at their bank, Jason pitches IonX to his entire firm and comes up with an insight that just might win the support of his firm.
