The newest project for CT Homes comes by way of one of Paul and Than's investor protegees. He sells them on a steal of a deal in an upscale suburb. It's a 3000 square-foot home on a acre, hill-top lot surrounded by trees and stunning views. The interior is recently renovated with new high-end fixtures. Than is wary of taking on a too many projects given their plans to open a satellite office in San Diego, but Paul and JD argue that, with a couple of small fixes, they will have the hottest house in the neighborhood. The biggest challenge will be trying to sell fast in today's down market. Demo day arrives and with it the first major set-back--the overgrown backyard is home to a strange gravel pit that hides the remains of an outdated septic system. The installation of a new septic system plus the discovery of faulty plumbing inside the house turn this quick flip into a serious challenge.
Scott buys a house formerly owned by alien enthusiasts and struggles to keep his flip budget from skyrocketing into space.
Dave and Peter get a lead on their website for a quaint, single-family home in Lynn--a standard looking flip with a few secrets under the surface. A hidden chimney stumps their open floor plan and opening the first floor ceiling reveals the structure is completely unsound. Adding to the stress, Dave hires his son Robert on the job who just can't get to work on time. This renovation keeps the flippers on their toes--will they win the fight or will it be lights out?

When one lover attacks another in a moment of unbridled emotion—or tries to eliminate their romantic competition—it's traditionally been known as 'a crime of passion.' These days, fits of rage over lost love are often chalked up to 'temporary insanity.' Whatever you call them, crimes committed in the name of love have been part of our cultural history since ancient times. Here are some of the most famous examples of passion-gone-wrong, from those who couldn't bear to part with their true love to those who found themselves on the receiving end of an obsessive romance.

After Caesar's assassination, Cleopatra set her sights on the dashing Roman general Mark Antony. The two began an affair, resulting in twins in 40 B.C. Antony wed Cleopatra in 36 B.C., and appointed his new wife ruler of Egypt, Cyprus, Crete, and Cyria. This abuse of power so outraged the Roman Senate that they denounced him a traitor. After losing a major battle at sea, Antony and Cleopatra were forced to flee to Egypt in 31 B.C. In desperation, Cleopatra spread rumors of her own suicide. Antony, unaware of her plan, stabbed himself to death. When Cleopatra heard of this, she took her own life by inducing a poisonous snake to bite her.
