As the race for city council comes close to an end, Leslie Knope fears for her safety. She loves Ben with all her heart, but even she knows his tiny biceps won’t be enough to protect them from angry Bobby Newport loyalists. Newport’s leave from the race has been the cause of several riots around town.
“We were promised sweets! And lots of them! [Newport] said he would give us bars of sugar if we gave him our votes!” - Man with smelly dog, at the latest riot outside the Sweetums factory (source: The Pawnee Journal, Pawnee’s own Washington Post).
Leslie and Ben decide that maybe hiring a professional bodyguard might be the way to go. Her current bodyguard is former Parks Department shoeshiner, Andy Dwyer (not only a danger to those around him, but also a danger to himself).
Trained by the FBI and left for dead atop the Himalayas, Claire Lane has seen it all. Is Claire the right choice? Can she protect the Deputy Director of the Pawnee City Department of Parks and Recreation? Will she be able to ignore the weird stares from Ms. Knope’s boyfriend, Mr. Ben Wyatt (who thinks she’s the actress who plays the evil but fabulous queen on his favorite TV series)? Will Claire build up the courage to ask out Ms. Knope’s best friend, beautiful nurse Ann Perkins, on a coffee date? Will all these ridiculous questions be answered in the next episode? I honestly… don’t know.
