Meanwhile, Donovan Decker prepare for a very important visitor: Miyoko Sato, the hard-to-please editor of a Japanese fashion magazine. Gray makes it clear to Jane how important it is to make sure Miyoko is happy because Donovan Decker has never been featured in Modern Empress before. Unfortunately, Miyoko isn’t impressed with the designs she sees.

After a few words with Jane, Miyoko agrees to give Donovan Decker one more chance. So Jeremy has Jane to dinner with Miyoko.

And the business dinner is completely successful; Miyoko agrees to feature a Donovan Decker design on the cover of Modern Empress!

Back at home, Ben has a heart-to-heart with Billy and gives him some advice concerning Jane. When Jane returns home from dinner, Billy is there waiting on her and the two friends make up.
