The Cleaning Lady - The Lion's Den

The second episode of The Cleaning Lady cements Thony's (Elodie Yung) lifestyle when Arman (Adan Canto) steps in to get the urgent medical care her son needs and she proves her worth to Arman's boss by leading them to a thief whose actions caused a gun fight with a disappointed buyer. Two episodes in, it's obvious the health of Luca (Valentino LaSalle) is going to be the show's go-to plot device whenever Thony even thinks about trying to leave her new friends. For better or worse, this is the cleaning lady's life now.

We're also introduced to FBI Agent Garret (Oliver Hudson) who hopes to turn Thony into his new inside man (although he's warned by his superiors to work within the rules in terms of whatever pressure he can bring to bear, laying a foundation by explaining the limitations imposed on him as to why he might not try more aggressive tactics to bring Thony to heel). In two episodes Thony has managed to prove her resourcefulness and loyalty to the mob, now what can she do in order to keep the FBI at bay and how long before she tells her new pal Arman that she's caught the government's eye?
