Leap Year Season Two Episode Three: Of All the Gin Joints

Hiscox Commentary on Small Business Insurance

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for C3D, they really did. Even without any equipment or prototypes, a trashed office, an accelerated launch schedule (thanks Jack!) and no insurance money to rebuild (thanks Glenn Cheeky!), it still felt like the team could pull it off. But, having the company bank account drained is just the perfect sour cherry on top of their sad sundae of a business. It’s no wonder Olivia wanted to quit. I’m sure she’s not the only one.

The bank account hack really threw C3D for a loop. Unfortunately, this type of thing happens more often than you’d think and it’s often an inside job. But, just like their coverage for the damaged equipment from last week’s break-in (if they could report it), there’s a way to protect a company from employee theft. If C3D added a commercial crime package to their business owner insurance policy they’d be reimbursed for fraudulent transfers, employee theft, forged checks and other dishonest acts that might happen.

So, about that rival company, Livefy. It’s hard to believe that the office being destroyed and the bank account hack aren’t tied together. Jack’s romantic wanderings have once again caused trouble for the team. It seems like June Pepper was very busy while she had Jack detained on her couch at the beginning of the season. What about Sam the Livefy CEO that Jack and Aaron invited over to threaten and dress down? That didn’t exactly work out as planned. Jack is going to have to pull of a miracle to make this work and regain the support of his team.

But, why was Sam so harsh to Jack and Aaron and so sweet with Olivia? I’ve got a hunch her feelings might change once she realizes she’s sleeping with the enemy.

If their rival Livefy really did all of these things why wouldn’t C3D want revenge? The only problem is, the notion of getting revenge is always better than actually doing it. They say revenge is a dish best served cold, but C3D needs to do something now before they transform from a hot startup into Silicon Valley’s latest cold leftovers.
