Episode Synopsis: Mind Games Episode 5 “Cauliflower Man” – The team is hired by Jim McKenna, a researcher who tried to blow the whistle on his employer for creating dangerous genetically-modified cauliflower, but in the process was fired and had his life ruined. The team enacts a plan to convince his former colleague to leak documentation to validate McKenna’s claims and expose their employer. However, in the midst of the plan, Clark suffers from a meltdown that leaves him bedridden. In an effort to get him back on the case, Ross stoops to new lows. Meanwhile, Latrell struggles to find the funds to pay the company’s employees as the firm’s finances begin to pile up.

Clark (Steve Zahn) and Ross (Christian Slater) Edwards are brothers and partners in a unique agency committed to solving clients’ problems using the hard science of psychological manipulation. Clark is a former professor and a world-renowned expert in the field of human behavior. But he has a checkered history due to bipolar disorder, which sometimes results in quirky, manic episodes. Older brother Ross is a slick con man who has spent time in prison. Each in their own way knows what makes people tick. Drawing from the most cutting edge research in psychology, they can a tailor a plan to influence any situation. It’s a little bit science, a little bit con artistry, plus a smattering of Jedi mind tricks. The brothers, along with their team of master manipulators, are offering clients an alternative to fate.
