1.12 - Joey and the Plot Twist

[Previous][Next][Back to the Master List]

The warm weather interferes with the getting into the holiday spirit. Joey meets the executive producer of Deep Powder, Lauren Beck, who is very obsessive-compulsive. At a press junket, he accidentally lets slip an upcoming plot twist involving the death of another character; in response, the script gets re-written, making Joey the plot twist, as he defuses a bomb near the edge of a cliff. Gina, Michael, and Alex fill Joey's apartment with Christmas decorations to cheer him up.
