"Family Business" is the seventh and eighth episodes of the 2nd season of the Femme Fatales TV series.


A cop enlists the help of her ex to stop a Mafia princess who is trying to take over her father's business and is planning to kill a candidate for district attorney.



  • Originally aired as a 60-minute episode, but has been formatted as two 30-minute episodes in most subsequent re-airings for scheduling reasons. While many guides list it as a two-parter, its initial airing and release on DVD as one double-length episode should make this the official recognition.
  • Not to be confused with the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode of the same title.
  • This episode includes clips from the episodes "The White Flower" and "Angel & Demons".


  • A politician's wife is seen watching Creepshow, an anthology movie which tells five terrifying tales inspired by the E.C. horror comic books of the 1950s.


Lilith: It was once said that love means never having to say that you're sorry. Apparently, the copywriter that coined that trite phrase has never actually been in love. For in fact, anyone who's ever been in love knows love means always having to say that you're sorry. Devlin Grant is a man who's about to be sorrier than he ever dreamed, and get more than he bargained for, in a battle in which the spoils of victory may very well be his own soul.
