High Priced Spread Season 1, Episode 6

We open on a b-ball game ten years ago in Detroit. After the game ends, and the interested parties hand over their losses to a bookie, we see a young boy and his older brother playing in the background. The older brother talks smack about his bro's game and tries to get the boy to step it up, and the boy looks crestfallen. He says something about how his mom and dad gave him 20 bucks a week for allowance. But the older bro must not have any money (and he's raising the kid now) so the bookie challenges the kid to make ten free throws for 100 bucks. The older kid agrees but the kid freaks... if they lose that money, they won't be eating that week. The dingus basically says welcome to the real world, and tells him to start shooting. The kid nails it. Enter scary thugs. Thugs are pissed that there was betting action going down in "his" hood. He shoots the bookie, and tells the mentor that he and junior are now under his jurisdiction. Cut to WITSEC ID screens: The big bro: Scott Worley The little: Chris Worley Oh, I forgot to tell you... this is going to be abridged tonight because I can't type busted my finger playing football yesterday. My finger is now the size of a football. Just this paragraph took half an hour. Now we're in present day Albuquerque. Mary visits Scott. He invites them to Chris' b-ball game. Marshall runs into a hot librarian-type teacher he used to know from school. Sparks fly, Mary mocks. After the game, Chris finds Mary and asks her for 3K for books and a new laptop. She's says that the government well is dry and then he asks Mary. Wow, that was ballsy, no? Pardon the pun. She says they have strict conduct codes. Cut to Marshall making out in Mary's car with the hot teacher. Codes, my ass! Mary has breakfast with Jinx (ugh) and Brandi. Jinx has tossed away a FedEx from the FBI. Mary retrieves it and it says the FBI is ruling Jinx's husband/Mary and Brandi's father is legally dead. Mary seems relieved. Jinx, not so much. Mary asks Scott how Chris supports himself. Chris says he's giving him money for books and a computer. Uh-oh, this isn't gonna be pretty. Mary confronts Chris and he says it was a bet gone bad and he owes his friend who put it on his plastic. He's got it all under control. Uh-huh. After Mary mocks Marshall's love for his old teacher ("oral exam" jokes galore) they witness some guys beat up Chris and steal his pimped out ride. Chris comes clean to Mary and Scott but he insists he never bets on his own team. Mary doesn't care; this is all sorts of illegal. He says he doesn't have a problem. Back at Mary's, Jinx is looking at old pics of her hubby. Guess he was a gambler too, which made Jinx an awful emotional drunken mess. Explains a lot. Marshall takes his lady out. In the washroom, Marshall gets a knock on the door. Hottie wants to become a member of the Diner's Club - of hooking up in the bathroom. Someone is a naughty girl! Mary takes Scott to a Gam-Anon meeting and has a huge breakdown about her father. Aww. The bank calls Scott Chris changed the check from 3k to 13k. Chris admits the real amount is 30k. Mary tells Scott not to give in, so Chris takes off. Scott is devastated but Mary promises to protect Chris. Mary and Marshall talk to the bookie who Chris owed money to, and he says all hid debts have been forgiven already. Something smells fishy here. He says if they come back with warrants, he'll out Chris as a gambler and ruin his career. Marshall, using a brilliant Back to the Future metaphor, explains that Chris will probably engage in point shaving in order to pay the bookie. Mary tells Chris that she's on to his racket and that he doesn't need to go down that road to know that there are people who care about him and will help him. At the game, Chris plays, and Marshall gets a naughty text from the teacher. Mary has a lot of fun with that. Mary calls Scott, and there's no answer. She senses something's not right. Marshall says Scott's been abducted, and Mary is playing it safe by acting like nothing is wrong as the bookie watches her closely. Marshall uses the On Star in the car to track Scott down. Chris gets replaced as the rigged game continues. Scott has been found safe, so Mary talks to the bookie and thanks him for letting Chris off the hook. Heh, Chris gets back in the game and kicks ass while Mary taunts the bookie with cheers for Chris. He gets two free throws and nails one and dunks the second. Nice work. Marshall arrests the bookie. Mary heads back to Gam-Anon to tell her story. Tears! What did you think of the episode? Did you like the intertwining theme of gambling?
