At the talent agency ASA+, Yudhis plays the role of Luna Maya's talent agent.

Kamila visits the office to meet with Ricky, and she is persuaded by Ricky to return to Semarang. While picking up her portfolio, she is recruited as Amel's assistant. Kamila accidentally leaks the real news to Luna. Feeling betrayed by her own agent, Luna threatens to leave ASA+ and join the rival talent agency, GEMA. However, Ricky manages to persuade Luna to stay and regain her role, on the condition of undergoing plastic surgery. Yet, Yudhis apologizes, and Luna bails out on the procedure. Due to her mistake, Kamila is fired but is given a second chance by Amel after stealing a script from Ricky.

Due to disputes stemming from their differing choices in the 2019 Indonesian presidential election, two clients of ASA+, Pandji Pragiwaksono and Soleh Solihun, are reluctant to appear in a single project, namely a public service advertisement initiated by the late Surya. Their respective agents, Ricky and Amel, persuade their clients to collaborate on the project. Ghea, Surya's wife, plans to sell ASA+ shares to their rival, Jonathan Tirta (JT). The agents brainstorm to prevent this from happening. Kamila meets Amel's young actor client, Bima, and they both show mutual interest. During an internal event commemorating the late Surya, Lydia gives a speech about the importance of Pandji and Soleh's presence in line with Surya's vision for ASA+. Both clients are eventually moved and agree to continue the project. However, a change in creative direction cancels Pandji and Soleh's involvement.

His agent, Yudhis, agrees to create a clarification video to salvage the contract. However, Bio is unwilling to comply. Ghea, along with JT's representative, visit the ASA+ office, but the employees sabotage the meeting to create a negative impression. As a result, Ghea reduces the deadline for partner agents to match JT's offer. Kamila is invited by Ricky to attend the premiere of the film 27 Steps of May. She is offered the role as Raihaanun's assistant, but she declines. Ricky and Yudhis are invited to join GEMA with a higher salary and greater benefits.

Amel presents a career plan for Nadh and plans to involve Nadh's mother, Citra, to invest in ASA+. Kevin apologizes to Zara, and shooting proceeds smoothly. Ricky receives a contract offer from GEMA, but Cindy opposes it. The plan gets revealed by Nia when she sees the transfer contract documents.

However, Amel disagrees, objecting to Ricky's complete ownership. Amel secures a loan from Citra under the condition that Nadh becomes a star. Ghea informs that she has a potential new buyer, necessitating a swift decision. Salma withdraws from a film audition due to a script containing sexist undertones. Ayu suddenly falls ill, and Tara's still unstable condition prevents her from continuing to film an important scene, forcing a postponement. A day later, Tara experiences another panic attack and briefly leaves the location. Kamila steps in to assist Tara with breathing exercises. With Kamila's help, Tara manages to resume filming. Ricky celebrates Kamila's birthday in his office, and the unexpected presence of Cindy and Bima surprises them.

Upon learning this truth, Cindy becomes angry with Ricky and orders him to leave the house, refusing to provide the funds for the purchase of ASA+ shares. Dodot is subsequently arrested by the police on charges of drug possession, and as his agent, Yudhis seeks ways to prevent the news from spreading widely in the media. Yudhis receives an offer from the Akar Randu production house, which is willing to help suppress the news, but in exchange, Dodot has to sign an exclusive contract with them.
