Foxy Ladies
We open with Gretchen visiting Alexis at home. Alexis wants to get Gretchen's input on her recent Fox Five appearance – and as it turns out Gretchen is a great person to get an opinion from. You see, Gretchen was offered the job at Fox Five first. Alexis is shocked first by this news, and then secondly by Gretchen’s decision to mention it to her. It doesn’t seem like Gretchen was trying to be vindictive, but one wonders if it could have gone without saying. . .the tension between these two is starting to make me nervous.

So Alexis tosses the idea to Jim that she start training for her role at the station. There's still the lingering issue of where her careers fit into the marriage contract.
