Ivan comes through at the last minute and asks to be a silent partner with minimal communication with Kit and no involvement in the day to day. Bette has her assistant looking for an apartment for Tina, it is clear that Bette wants to win Tina back because she doesn't want a place too far, too nice or too shabby for Tina; she is still trying to manipulate her from afar. Jenny begins a writting course to hone her skills as a writter of fiction. Shane begins something with Carmen.

Bette runs into the gang who are out to dinner, it is clear that they have taken Tina's side. The only one who reaches out to Bette is Shane. Shane, in true yoda like fashion, picks up on the fact that there is something between Alice and Dana; she mentions it to Alice at the strip-club where Dana and Alice have yet another encounter in the bathroom that is interupted by Tonya. The girls take Tina for a lap dance to cheer her up. In the mean time, Kit and Bette meet up with Manfreddie Ferrer, who they believe to be Marina's father, they are shocked to learn that he is actually her husband. They complete the deal and Kit officially becomes owner of The Planet. While sitting on the Bette's porch smoking and drinking Jenny asks Shane to be her roommate.
