‘Entourage’ Season Three: Ep. 39 “Return of the King”

It’s Yom Kippur, and while Ari attempts to gain forgiveness for his sins, he runs into “Medellin” co-producer Nick Rubenstein, son of Phil, at his temple. Nick drops the bomb the biopic is back in play and they want Vince. The only issue? The studio needs an answer from Vince before sundown–and coordinating a deal on the holiest of days won’t be easy since most of the players, including the studio head, are in temple. Ari contacts Amanda, and she agrees in principle to the deal, but is hesitate to work with Ari. Vince and E begin to suspect she may be trying to sabotage the deal.

To take their minds off work, Vince and the boys head to the track. Drama’s “lock” of a horse finishes as an also-ran, and Vince’s brother cringes at the thought of “King” being done away with due to his lack of speed. To save King, Drama purchases the horse, giving him a new home on Vince’s front lawn. Unfortunately, Drama soon realizes that boarding a horse is wildly expensive, losing thousands of dollars to food and the required permits. After King takes a brief trip outside Vince’s gates, Drama gets a few hefty fines and realizes he has to give up his horse. But, instead of sending him to the glue factory, Drama passes King off to Ed Burns as a “gift” for Ed’s kids.

As the deadline for “Medellin” approaches, Eric tracks down Ari and finishes the deal, bypassing Amanda entirely. But Ari, after speaking with a despondent Nick, finds out the project is officially OFF the table—for now. Believing Amanda mishandled the situation and cost him his dream project, Vince confronts her over dinner. She explains that Nick Rubenstein was the one who actually killed the project by constantly hounding the studio head on the high holy day. Vince is embarrassed by the truth, but he’s even more shocked when Amanda walks away, dropping him both as a client and as a boyfriend.
