We’ve known Jake and Laura to be exes and this hasn’t been an issue in the workplace until “The Mysteries of Laura” Season 1, Episode 15 “The Mystery of the Alluring Au Pair.” Find out why in our recap below.

The whole headquarters was surprised when news broke that they were going to be inspected. It was due to the fact that there has been a complaint received about Laura and Jake. It was so shocking for the workers especially to Laura and Jake because sure, they may have a past but they work together well.

No one knows who filed the complaint until it was revealed that it was actually Laura who filed the complaint months ago. The paperwork just got delayed, which is why they were all caught off guard.

The whole episode centered on Laura. She was trying to show the chief that nothing’s going on between him and Jake anymore. There might have been a few “almost” moments that the two shared. But, they never let it overpower the relationship that they have now especially in the workplace. Laura even brought Tony in to show the chief that she’s with someone else now.

The chief is actually a woman named Frankie. She wasn’t just digging through romantic-work relationships. Also, she also plans to change the whole dynamic of the precinct because she plans on getting assigned there. They all assumed that someone’s going to leave when Frankie takes her place so everyone tried to show Frankie that they deserve to stay at the precinct.

Frankie wasn’t likeable at first because she’s all business and Laura didn’t like her at first. But hen they started working together, Laura found her to be okay. In the end, Jake announced that Frankie will be a new addition to their team while Laura was thrilled about this, she is also curious to know Frankie’s story and why she requested to be transferred to a new precinct. This is going to be interesting.
