In an exclusive clip from the new episode, Edgar Reade (Rob Brown) has to inform the lovable reformed criminal that his position is in jeopardy.

Clearly these things are rather last minute, as Reade makes Rich aware that he'll have to attend his meeting with an agent from the "Office of  Professional Responsibility" right there and then. "Right now?! I'm in pajamas," Rich exclaims.
