6 The Cold Hard Truth
In the middle of a heat wave that's paralyzed both Texas and Riley's air conditioner, business at the Rub is hurt when Georgia suspects that new client Nathan Young is an undercover cop. So to avoid being shut down, Georgia bans any "extras," putting a serious crimp in the girls' earning power. Meanwhile, after convincing Lacey that the cash she found in the freezer was an inheritance from Kyle's reclusive uncle, Riley is prodded into a play date with Dr. Mark Flemming and his son, Zack. And as Evan struggles to get back on his feet after losing his job, Lacey's husband, Dale, encourages him not to give up on the idea of a romance with Riley. As the girls look for ways to keep their regular clients happy, Georgia presses a local cop for tips about any upcoming raids. Though Georgia doesn't learn enough to call off the ban, Selena still finds a way to satisfy her demanding clients without doing anything illegal. When Georgia thinks that the spa is being staked out by the police, Riley realizes that the suspicious car parked outside belongs to Lacey. But when Riley confronts her in the parking lot, Lacey reveals that she knows the story about Kyle's late uncle was a lie. So when Riley comes clean about her new job, Lacey gets upset and bolts. Meanwhile, as Riley looks to keep things with Mark strictly platonic, Selena's co-workers suspect that she's defying Georgia's orders. As Riley and the other girls finally press her about how she is satisfying her customers without violating Georgia's ban, Selena admits that she's found ways to help her clients help themselves. Fretting over driving her best friend away, Riley hurries to make things right and is surprised to find that Linette is at Lacey's house. All too aware of the tension between them, when Riley leaves the room for a moment, Linette presses Lacey for details. Riley is certain that Lacey will tell Linette everything, but is relieved to discover that, despite her anger and dismay, Lacey didn't divulge her secrets. And, when Dale finally agrees to start trying to have a baby, Lacey sets aside her feelings about Riley's job in order to share the good news with her. Finally, after Georgia announces that it is safe to return to business as usual at the Rub, Riley discovers that Nathan was, in fact, a cop. © 2012 Sony Pictures Television Inc. All Rights Reserved.
