When Kate handles a mediation between the RTN news network and two former employees who claim they were fired because of their sexual orientation, she discovers that the network may have in fact fired them to cover up a story one of the women was investigating. Which begs the question: who is RTN trying to protect?
Kate, Ben and the RTN researcher, Rachel, start digging into the story, a dirty real estate deal between the city and a developer called Selex, and make a very surprising discovery: Aaron Davidson, Justin's shady boss and opponent in the District Attorney race, was somehow involved.
But in order to take Davidson down, they're going to need real proof. As it happens, there is someone who can get them the records they need from Selex: Robin Archer. Although he agrees to help in an attempt to woo Lauren back, Kate can tell he's hiding something. And when Lauren gets a visit from the FBI, it becomes clear that Kate's not the only one wondering what's really going on with the mysterious billionaire.
As for what's going on with Kate's love life, that's just as murky. Justin is ready to take their rekindled relationship to the next level, but with Kate's doubts mounting and Ben still waiting in the wings, her romantic future may be more uncertain than ever.
