‘Loot’ Season 1 Episode 4: Molly learns she owns an amusement park when visitors get stuck on a roller coaster

In Loot Season 1 Episode 4: “Excitement Park,” which began streaming on July 1, 2022, according to Apple TV, Molly arrives at the office with everyone captivated by what’s on TV. People are stuck upside down on a roller coaster at an amusement park in the Philippines. And, as it turns out, she’s the owner of said park. 

While live coverage continues, Molly sets out to learn more about her financial holdings. Because, as she tells everyone at the foundation, her ex-husband John Novak (Adam Scott) bought a lot of companies. And she’s still not clear on which ones she owns.

With Arthur’s (Nat Faxon) help, Molly learns more about what exactly she owns. A few of her holdings could be problematic so the pair see them in person. The first is an art gallery where Arthur admires a small painting of a bird. Another is an alpaca farm John gave Molly as an anniversary present.

Along the way, Molly and Arthur bond. They have witty banter back and forth (“jazz it up”) and open up about their respective divorces. Then when it seems Arthur’s going to be late taking his daughter to a soccer game, Molly says they can take her helicopter. 

The next day, Molly finds out there’s a photo of her and Arthur from the game. Paparazzi are wondering about her new “mystery man.” 

Molly addresses it immediately. She announces to everyone in the office there’s nothing romantic between her and Arthur. Although, spoiler, there’s clearly some chemistry there. 

Additionally, she privately apologizes to Arthur, reiterating nothing can happen. “As your boss, I wouldn’t want people to get the wrong idea,” she says. “I think I get in enough trouble as it is.” 

Later, Arthur arrives home to find the bird artwork on his doorstep with a note from Molly.
