Waiting On A Friend

Waiting On A Friend

When senior partner Richard Tafflinger arrives from the New York office with his assistant Emily Adams, it’s clear that they are out to get rid of Franklin and Bash. According to Emily, a criminal client who disappeared before her court date has resurfaced to accuse them of paying her to take off. While Peter and Jared admit to giving Tammi Stetten the money to get a tattoo removed before her trial, they insist they are innocent of any misconduct. But when they track down the doctor who was supposed to remove the tattoo but ended up giving her a new one instead, he cites doctor-patient privilege and refuses to say anything about her case. Facing off against his longtime nemesis Tafflinger, Infeld insists on standing by Franklin and Bash and assigns Karp to represent them in court. As they are visiting another client at the jail, the guys make sure that Tammi knows they’ve discovered her plan to testify against them. However, though Peter and Jared hope to prove that she used their money to get a new tattoo and not to run away, the judge rules that the tattoo cannot be considered evidence because it will violate Tammi’s right to privacy. Meanwhile, as Tafflinger presses Pindar and Carmen for incriminating information, Jared’s effort to win Emily over ends up sparking a romance. When Pindar discovers that Tammi did a stint with the roller derby’s Hollywood Wheels, Jared finds a poster of the team that could force her to testify about the tattoo. And when a former teammate vividly demonstrates that their uniforms were revealing enough to dismiss any claim of privacy, the judge allows the tattoo to be entered as evidence. So after her well-documented history of getting tattoos to celebrate her crimes undermines her story, Tammi withdraws her complaint. And with his court case in tatters, Tafflinger has no choice but to back down, too. © 2012 Sony Pictures Television Inc. All Rights Reserved.
