After his kiss with Taylor, Ryan stays aloof because he has sexy fantasies about her seducing him, but she really wants to be good friends till further notice, and even pretends to have a new lover, fellow Asian movie collectibles amateur Roger. Furthermore, for the confident position of 'new Seth', Taylor gets competition from both Kirsten who plays her experience concerning girls and her husband Sandy. Texan tycoon Gordon Bullit is still after Julie Cooper, who tries to defuse him by double-dating with Kiki and (nobody asked him) Sandy, while Gordon's son, Spencer Bullit, turns up at the ladies' firm with a bunch of unexpected male paying clients. Kaitlin uses mother's absence to throw a pool party to outclass an arrogant in-crowd girl's posh party. There Ché, who fled Seth (who also turns up there) turns up, determined to get Summer to forgive him for her suspension from Brown, postponing her whole new life in Rhode Island, even if that takes handcuffing them two together. Kaitlin ... Written by KGF Vissers
