DESCRIPTION:
(from FOX's press release) Russ wants to secure a new route to the hot party destination of Reykjavk, Iceland, for TransAlliance Airlines. Sam eagerly takes on the task of impressing his new Icelandic friends, but when it appears that his generous token isn't as impressive as he thought, he's forced to hang out with young Icelandic executive Harald (Damon Herriman) in order to get company information from him. This, of course, interferes with his bigger duty of getting new receptionist Cara (Diora Baird) to go out with him before his window of opportunity closes in the "Window" episode of THE LOOP airing Sunday, June 10 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
