Season 1  "The Retooling of Dean Sanderson"  1x14

Aired 6 years ago - Feb 09, 2016

When Dean scares off a big prospective client by being too dramatic, Stewart tells him maybe it’s finally time to let go of his “Grinder” persona and come down to earth. He tries to convince Dean he should go to therapy.
