Cash encourages Missy to call Polly to eliminate the unknown. Missy calls Polly and leaves a message, inviting her to talk.
In Isabel’s office, she practices her stadium pitch to Gus. Through practicing, Isabel realizes she’s not ready to pitch Mr. Booker. Hank tells Isabel that Mr. Booker investing in them is huge for his reputation and brand and all they must do is make him see that.

At home, Missy tells Isabel that Mr. Booker is coming. Missy tells Isabel they should put on their own private rodeo as a show-and-tell pitch. Isabel agrees.

In the training area, Missy and Cash stretch. Cash apologizes to her for his fight with Gus. Missy tells him that Polly blew her off. She believes Polly didn’t face her because she has something to hide.
In the courtyard, Isabel, Hank and Janine welcome Mr. Booker to the ranch. Mr. Booker is intense and tells them that his time is valuable, and he’d like to get started. Gus tells his father to give the McMurrays a chance because they are good people.
Missy approaches Gus. She tells him that Cash is just protective of the ranch. Gus tells her that he should’ve never punched Cash; he doesn’t want to be like his father. Missy tells him that she knows he’s not like Mr. Booker. Meanwhile, at the stables, Cash tells Valeria that his problem with Gus is he’s a charmer like Austin. Meanwhile, he must jump through hoops to get what he wants. Valeria tells him he doesn’t have anything to prove.

He hides his pain and says that he is.
Isabel notices Mr. Booker’s excitement. She asks him if he enjoyed himself. He says yes but he can tell that she did not. She admits rodeo has brought her a lot of pain but there’s still love as it is about family. She believes that’s what will attract people, whether Mr. Booker invests or not. Mr. Booker asks Isabel to look at her numbers.
At the stables, Missy, Isabel, Valeria and Tuff learn that Cash rode with an injury. Isabel is furious that Missy would let him ride injured. Cash says he isn’t the first person to ride injured.

The two have a proper sit down in Missy’s house when she explains that she and Austin met through the Professional Rodeo Riders Organization, where she worked. Polly says Austin didn’t cheat on her; they met long before Missy was in the picture. Polly shares that Austin wanted to ride the most dangerous bull, which happened to be Hurricane. The wilder the bull, the higher the points. She helped him to rig which bull he drew. Missy wonders why Austin felt the need to cheat at bull riding when he was already the best contender that year. Polly cries, believing his death was her fault.
