Charley has been angling to retain control of Davis’ career, but she can’t do so unless he plays basketball in Louisiana. However, getting Davis to come to New Orleans could be complicated by the fact that the team’s coach wants Davis as part of a package deal with his fellow Gladiators teammate Felix. Felix was also involved in the rape scandal that ruined Davis’ marriage, but Felix’s wife doesn’t know it.
Here, Charley takes Felix’s wife out for a drink. When Charley realizes she’s unaware of the tape implicating Felix in the gang rape, Charley plays her hand: If Felix’s wife doesn’t tell her husband to move to New Orleans, Charley will release a tape proving he took part in the heinous crime.
