Falling in love in the workplace can be a difficult thing, as you are worried about what it can do to your career. But if it is the right opportunity, there is no reason to pass it up. The thing that you have to remember is that if you are found out, it could cost you your job, but if it is true love, there should be nothing to stop you. Keeping a secret between your coworkers could be hard enough when trying to make it to the next level of your life, but keeping it from someone outside of the office could be much more costly.
Stacey is and up and coming model that even though she is not looking for love, has found it in the eyes of her new photographer, Devlin. As he is making jokes about where the group could be shooting, Stacey comes back with a cute remark that leaves him wondering if she could be the one for him. But before he is able to pursue this question, Stacey’s manager and fiancé Mitch comes into the studio and interrupts the photo shoot. Bringing his normal swagger, Mitch makes both Stacey and Devlin feel uncomfortable about what is happening, but that is not enough to keep Devlin from asking the question.
Offering a safe place to stay if things get out of hand at home, Devlin gives Stacey a key to the studio and tells her that it is hers if things get out of control. Knowing that there is something wrong with Mitch, Devlin is sure that Stacey will be back that night and he is happy to see that he is right. Stacey returns to him with a new bruise on her chest from her ex and wants to feel safe from here on out, and Devlin gives her something to guarantee it, a necklace that his grandmother gave to him that is a promise that he will be there whenever she is in trouble. Although it is unorthodox, Stacey accepts it, but when Mitch finds out what is happening, he has a plan of his own to win her back.
Inviting Devlin up to his cabin, Mitch murders the young photographer and plays off of his loss like he has run from the girl of his dreams. Stacey is not able to get ahold of Devlin for a week and although she does not believe what Mitch is telling her, they have too much history to just let his story fall upon to non-listening ears. Not believing that Devlin could run off with another up and coming model, Stacey goes to investigate herself, but Mitch is there to make sure she does not find anything. Kidnapping her up to the cabin, Mitch is ready to have the time of his life, but before he can get started, he hears a rustling outside of the window. Thinking back to what she was told about the necklace, Stacey knows that she is being protected by the man that she truly loved.
A story of lost, longing and jealousy, all tied into one. If you have been paying attention through the series, you know what you are going to get once the foreshadowing is laid out and this one does not disappoint at all. A jealous boyfriend that is looking for more using the wrong tactics, along with a new love that should never have happened, it is the perfect twist to a love triangle. With Miguel Ferrer as Mitch, Teri Hatcher as Stacey and Kyle Secor as Devlin, it is hard to imagine that there could be any downfall in this episode at all. It is also the first episode where the Crypt Keeper starts using the term ‘Kiddies’, so from here on out, Until next time Kiddies, Stay Scared.
