Volume 1
Blake Lively: An Exhaustive Examination

Episode 16 – A Simple Favor

Emily is a cool tall charismatic gazelle Amazon woman in a pantsuit who handles public relations for a fashion and fragrance guru in New York, New York. One day, as she’s picking up her son from school in Connecticut, she meets a child-sized mother named Stephanie. They bond quickly, thanks to their sons’ friendship and also gin martinis. When Emily shares details of her high pressure family and work life, Stephanie – desperate for validation from a strong female figure – volunteers to watch Emily’s child after school should the need arise. The need arises soon, when Emily gets stuck in a work meeting, and Stephanie takes the kids to the park. Later, during drinks at Emily’s home – Emily reveals her sexual fluidity and coaxes Stephanie to also reveal a secret. Stephanie’s secret is much more intense and results in Emily giving her a new nickname. 
On another day, Emily once again finds herself in a bind and requests A Simple Favor of Stephanie – to watch her kid after school again. This time, however, Emily doesn’t come to pick up her son – and then isn’t heard from for several days! 

When she eventually…resurfaces…her friendship with Stephanie changes and never returns to its previous state. Blood is shed, more secrets are revealed, lives are torn apart, leading to the eventual incarceration of Emily! Fortunately, Emily’s natural charisma and adaptability suit her well in prison and she soon finds herself acclimating well to her new life.
