Ground Floor Spoiler: Mano-a-Mansfield
“Ground Floor” Season 2 Episode 5 “Mano-a-Mansfield” will air on Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2015, at 10:00 p.m. on TBS. It’s going to be a showdown between Mansfield and Brody at work but will the latter be able to take down his former mentor? Before we get into the details, let’s take a step back a little to what happened last time.
In “The Break-ups” (air date: Dec. 30, 2014) Remington Trust was losing financial advisers fast. Apparently, a young up and comer by the name of Jasper McCabe (guest star Brent Morin) has been poaching staff from Mansfield’s (John C. McGinley) company. Everyone was called, except for Threepeat (Rene Gube), who’s been wondering why no one wanted to pirate him.
Brody (Skylar Astin) saw McCabe hanging out in the office building’s lobby. It’s actually how he was able to talk to steal Mansfield’s staff from under him, and so the big man confronted McCabe, but the latter was determined to do what he came for. He even offered Brody a spot in his office.
Brody told Mansfield that he will not go with McCabe as he’s loyal to Remington Trust. He wondered if he could get his old job back now that the company was obviously in need of help. But Mansfield told him that he’s never earning back his trust again. He basically told Brody that their relationship, professional and otherwise personal, was over.
Meanwhile, at the ground floor, Jenny (Briga Heelan) also had to tell Harvard (Rory Scovel) that their relationship was done. See, the latter has been holding a torch for her, even as they were never together. But as Derrick (James Earl) has advised, in order for Harvard to move on, Jenny had to “break-up” with him too.
In the end, Brody chose to take the job offer with McCabe and Mansfield regretted his decision. Harvard told Jenny that she’s not the first girl to break-up with him, but without letting her know, he was pretty crushed about their “break-up.”

It’s Brody’s first day with McCabe’s company, and he’s very excited about coming back to work as a financial manager again. However, when he learns what his first assignment would be, suddenly, it didn’t seem so fun anymore. McCabe wants Brody to take down Mansfield, his former boss. How will Brody be able to do this when he looks up to the man as a hero? Why would he drive him out of business?
Meanwhile, Threepeat would like to step it up and fill the void Brody left in Mansfield’s life. With the help of Lindsay, the two plan this out well, but will it work?
At the ground floor, Jenny and Derrick try to help out Harvard find a new girl. They hook him up to online dating. This should be fun!
