Susan is all dressed up for a working lunch with James Garrett. Ben is more than a little jealous, despite Susan's assurances that it's purely a professional relationship.

Thinking Susan has forgotten her bag, Ben goes through it and is shocked to find a hotel room key and a note from James.

Ben heads straight to the hotel and poses as the hotel manager to get in to James's room. He can't believe his eyes when he finds Janey there.

It's not long before Ben tells Susan about Janey's new romance. But, surprisingly, she takes the news really well and Ben begins imagining the benefits of gaining a rich son-in-law.

However, on another visit to see James, Susan is shocked to see him kissing a blonde woman as she leaves his hotel room. Will Susan be prepared to ruin her daughter's relationship, along with Ben's dream of wealthy connections?
