In �Impressions,� as the team gears up to for Wildfire�s big race at the Sandpiper Classic, Tina Sharp (Amy Jo Johnson) invites a camera crew to document her training at Raintree. Kris and Pablo are annoyed by Tina�s constant need to be in the limelight. Junior invites Kris to dine with Dani and his father, Ken Davis. At the dinner, Dani gets frustrated by her father�s behavior and announces that she is on a search to find her mother. After dinner, Ken tells Junior that he should be wary of Kris's motives, because she may be after his money. Matt and Tina�s relationship continues to heat up; however, Tina let's Matt know that her lifestyle does not lend itself to anything permanent. Charlie mistakenly tells Matt that his father, Pete, had visited the ranch. Matt�s anger over this tempts him back into the world of gambling.
