It’s the “Santa Monica Cop” kickoff party at Rath’s. Hank has an intimate notes session with the show’s female lead, Amy Taylor Walsh, while the male lead, Hashtag Black, has his eyes on Julia. As Charlie tries to manage Goldie, his head-case client, Stu makes him an offer. The party ends early when Levon breaks Rath’s cardinal rule.
