Episode Synopsis: Franklin & Bash Season 4 Episode 3 “Love Is the Drug”- A driver who works for a crowd-sourced taxi service is accused of stealing celebrity handbags with the help of one of his passengers. Peter and Jared have their work cut out for them when it’s revealed the passenger used a fake identity to book the rides, and left their client to take the fall. The guys must find the mystery girl and convince her to confess, but when they do, they discover the driver’s crush on her is so debilitating, it’s almost clinical, giving them no choice but to put his neurochemicals on the stand and prove his “crush” is akin to that of a “judgment impairing drug”. Meanwhile, furious that his caricature has been removed from a local restaurant, Infeld sucker-punches the owner, re-sparking a bitter rivalry.

Show Summary: TNT’s hit legal series Franklin & Bash is back in session for a third season with the same fun banter, unique legal battles and a brand new boss to try and keep the legal wonder boys in line. Starring Breckin Meyer and Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Franklin & Bash averaged 4.3 million viewers in its sophomore campaign, up 10% over its first season. The buddy drama also averaged 1.8 million adults 18-49 and 2.0 million adults 25-54. Heather Locklear joins the cast this season as Rachel King the new partner in the firm with her sights set on reigning in LA’s go-to legal team.

Franklin & Bash stars Breckin Meyer as Jared Franklin and Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Peter Bash, two young, fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants street lawyers who caused a seismic culture clash when they joined a legendary, button-down law firm. Jared loves sticking it to authority every chance he gets. Peter, meanwhile, has a knack for connecting with judge and jury any way he can. Malcolm McDowell plays Renaissance man Stanton Infeld, the brilliant and eccentrically spontaneous patriarch of the law firm. Also starring are Reed Diamond, Dana Davis, and Kumail Nanjiani.

This season takes an exciting turn. Besides dealing with a new boss, Jared and Peter adjust to new surroundings as they move into a beach house in Malibu. The cases the guys will tackle include a world famous magician, defending a dead man who is in fact alive, a heckling baseball fan and the owner of a space meteor. Season three will also feature an impressive list of guest stars including Piers Morgan, Martin Starr, Tom Lennon, Jay Chandrasekhar, Jane Seymour, Adam Goldberg and a few surprises.
