Episode 5: Admission
Starring: Alan LUK, Jennifer YU, LAM Chin-ting, Himmy WONG, Shirley SHAM, Inez LEONG, Pierre NGO

The Competition Commission will send staff to exchange in Europe, which is a good opportunity to improve the chance of promotion and career development. Johnny decides to pick Ashley or Sean base on their work performance. In Johnny’s eyes, Ashley and Sean are his successors who possess different strengths, and they have always maintained healthy competition between them. He would like to reignite the competitive atmosphere between the two with the Europe exchange quota. Rookie Nicole becomes the lubricant between the two. Being all things to all men, Nicole helps Sean to apologise to Ashley, and she is a good listener when Ashley wants to confide her heart.

The Healthy Food Company and Start-up Healthy APP Company are under investigation for suspected price fixing. The collection of evidence has just completed, then the people in charge of the two companies state that they admit liability and will assist in the investigation through their lawyers. Sean decides to close the file after interviewing WONG Yat-lung (played by Pierre NGO) from the Healthy Food Company. Johnny senses something unusual with the case as both companies admit liability readily, and he notices that Sean backs down intentionally for the sake of Ashley.

On the other hand, Ashley feels suspicious after conducting interviews. She considers that the bosses of both companies are hiding something. Nicole points out that WONG Yat-lung’s wife Avis B (played by Inez LEONG) is a fitness Key Opinion Leader (KOL) who often webcasts live at the fitness centre concerned, and she suggests looking for clues therefrom. Ashley and Nicole check the relevant footage, and finally …

Ashley is awarded the quota to exchange in Europe as she solves the case. Sean sends her his blessings, but there is something lingering in his mind. Johnny notices everything, while Nicole hopes that Ashley and Sean can make further progress.
