In the fifth episode, "Model Behaviour", the agency is filled with showgirls from all over the world, flown in especially for London Fashion Week. The pressure mounts and tempers fray as the bookers work day and night to get the girls in from New York, and out to up to 20 castings a day, spread out all over London, before finding out who's booked who for which shows. Getting Premier girls booked for the top shows is vital for the agency's prestige and the onus is on the bookers to beat their rivals.
Managing the girls' often volatile tempers is a vital part of show booking. In Model Behaviour, the bookers are tested when the behaviour of a 17 year-old Ukrainian girl leads to an explosive face off with Senior Booker Aidan; and the bookers go into high alert when Japanese model, Coco, gets lost alone in the middle of the night, unable to speak English.
Not only are there dramas for the bookers, but their bright new hope, Leomie, is exhausted and tearful when she learns that she has to miss her first two weeks of college in order to continue her catwalk career.
Back in the agency, the bookers continue to bond over the madness of long days and nights, and Aidan and Sissy begin to talk about their romance in their interviews away from the table. As Fashion Week comes to an end, the agency concludes its most successful show week ever.
As the bookers and models celebrate, Leomie is poised to break through, coming one step closer to the big money that comes from booking a major campaign after the whirlwind of Show Season is over.
