‘Ground Floor’: Where We Left Off
“Ground Floor” Season 2 Episode 1 “Unforgiven” will kick off this coming Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2014 at 10:00 p.m. on TBS. To prepare for its return, here’s a brief recap of what happened in the final episode (“Decision” air date: Jan. 16, 2014) of the last season. Read on below.
Brody (Skylar Astin) was left with a difficult choice — should he board the plane to Hong Kong with his boss and mentor, or go to Paris with Jenny (Briga Heelan), his girlfriend of three months, and see where this relationship is headed?
Jenny convinced Brody to take the trip with his boss. Although they have planned the Paris trip way before the Hong Kong offer came, she knew how much his work meant to him. They could make the distance work between them. But then, Brody had a better proposal. How about if Jenny came to Hong Kong with him? Jenny has long dreamed of going to Paris, so she was not up for this.
And so, it was pretty clear and set. Jenny was going to Paris all by herself, and Brody was going to pack his bags for Hong Kong. Brody had a going away party given by his friends, and Jenny was there, too. Their parting was bittersweet, but she was genuinely happy for her boyfriend.
Leaving his friend’s apartment, Brody got on a final pep talk with his boss, Mansfield (John C. McGinley), and they talked about the upcoming trip. Then the topic shifted to Jenny. Mansfield was honest in telling his protégé that being away from Jenny might mean he could lose his girlfriend. This Hong Kong trip, a promotion, in fact, was a once in a lifetime opportunity. If Brody ended up choosing love, he could end up losing everything, because, what if he stayed and still ended up breaking up with his girlfriend? He would have no career and no love life to speak of.
Even in the final minutes, Brody was still unsure of his decision. Walking at the airport, he soon realized that the promotion was not actually a choice given to him. In fact, it was as if he was obligated to take it. He quickly had a change of heart and chose to be with Jenny, ditching Mansfield who was waiting for him on the plane bound for Hong Kong. The bottom line was Brody made a choice and it was his choice to make.
And with that, Brody was fired by Mansfield over the phone, which placed him in the same spot as his girlfriend, career wise. He’s now at the bottom, but he’s there with his girl.
What will happen to Brody once the second season kicks off?
