Rudy's latest flip is a cute starter home in LA's Mount Washington neighborhood. It's any easy renovation job, but marketing could pose a challenge. The house sits right on the border of an area that has, in the past, been plagued by crime. The neighborhood is on the upswing, but still struggles to overcome it's rough reputation. Rudy pays cash for the house and predicts a 2 week flip--it's so easy, he heads to Hawaii for a little vacation with his kids, leaving Carlos and Mary in charge. While Rudy relaxes in paradise the crew back home has to deal with all of the standard construction problems, plus an earthquake. Rudy returns, but is thrown off course by shooting just blocks from the house. A police officer has been killed, leaving behind a wife and children. Rudy is devastated and must now calculate how this tragedy might affect the neighborhood, and his investment.
