One would think that Seth would have learned his lesson after trying to sell his dad’s pawn shop out from under him, but apparently that is not the case on this week's episode of Hardcore Pawn.
Les had a hard time finding forgiveness in his heart for his son but, ultimately, realized that his son would always be his son, no matter what, and decided to put Seth’s betrayal behind him and move forward at American Jewelry & Loan. Seth should have learned from the gesture, and definitely should have appreciated how hard it was for his dad, but apparently what he gleaned from the scenario was that he can go behind his father’s back and get away with it. Fans will recall the awkward betrayal that created the rift between father and son in the first place:
Cleaning Up, Tossing Out
This week, to start off the New Year, Seth decides on episode “Junkyard Intervention” that he wants to do some cleaning. However, the cleaning he wants to do is getting rid of “junk” that Les values. According to truTV:
With the warehouse overflowing with broken electronics, Seth decides to orders a dumpster to get rid of the junk - behind his father’s back. Will Les be able to let it go? Or will this new betrayal create a rift between father and son?
Meanwhile, truTV indicates, Ashley is having her own troubles, with law-related issues all over the shop:
Ashley faces off with a woman who threatens to bring charges against her when her pawn doesn’t go as planned, and a man claiming to be a lawyer tries to allegedly swindle her with some fake jewels.
