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with it the first major set-back--the overgrown backyard is home to a strange gravel pit that hides the remains of an outdated septic system.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?

Frida Kahlo first met Diego Rivera when she was an art student hoping to get advice on her career from the famous Mexican muralist. Although Rivera was married, a courtship ensued. They wed in 1929 (he was 42, she was 22) much to the disapproval of Frida's parents, who referred to the couple as "the elephant and the dove." With volatile tempers and countless infidelities, the marriage was notoriously tumultuous. The couple divorced in 1939 only to remarry a year later, though the second marriage was just as turbulent as the first. Both have long been recognized as important painters who achieved great international popularity during their lifetimes.
