Au Reservior: With police pushing their business off the streets, C.C. (Gary Carr), Larry (Gbenga Akinnagbe), Rodney (Cliff Smith/Method Man) and other pimps worry about becoming obsolete. Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal) eyes a different job on Harvey’s (David Krumholtz) set as Lori (Emily Meade) struggles with the demands of porn acting.
At her wit’s end, Ashley (Jamie Neumann) hangs out with Frankie (James Franco) and, later, washes up on Abby’s (Margarita Levieva) door. Bobby (Chris Bauer) is smitten with an employee while dealing with shakedowns, flare-ups and a medical emergency. Frankie is tasked by Rudy (Michael Rispoli) to turn a peep-show concept into reality. Alston (Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.) finds himself singled out by the 14th Precinct’s new captain, McDonagh (Ed Moran). Abby asks Vincent to be her escort at her family’s lavish party.
