Nick and Sabrina spent the night together after forming a small truce at the office, but Nick wakes up from his night of happiness to find Sabrina and his clothes gone.
Once again, truce is off. Nick shows up to work in Sabrina’s clothes, and she quickly finds that her plan didn’t work. Nick is ready to show off his crop top and his ideas for the show.
They may be fighting and Nick may be wearing pants that are five sizes too small, but that doesn’t mean that Sabrina and Nick can’t still hook up at work. It also doesn’t mean that Nick can’t steal Sabrina’s phone and send their boss Scott sexually explicit text messages. Well played, Nick.
The two are hanging out again after working eating Chinese food (nom nom) and about to hit the sheets once more, until Nick thinks twice and decides he’s safer in his own apartment. Sabrina promises to not mess with him for the next twelve hours as long as they can mess around together. Game on.
Connor wakes up with Jennifer in her bed and heads to the kitchen to make her coffee. But breakfast is interrupted when a guy breaks into Jennifer’s house and Connor attacks him. Thankfully , Jennifer stops the fighting men and explains that the thief is actually her husband. Say wha? Connor needs to read more TMZ.
Jennifer’s soon to be ex-husband Eric is drunk and she has a meeting, so Connor has to watch the him until Jennifer gets back home. Eric tells Connor he’s still in love with Jennifer and is going to work to get her back. Naturally, the punches fly once more, until both men end up on the ground and have a serious talk. Because that’s how these things usually end. Connor realizes that Eric isn’t such a bad guy and the two find themselves bonding over their love for Jennifer…and video games. But mostly Jennifer.
Abby tries talking to Brandon about his plan for how they can continue as a twosome relationship, but Brandon doesn’t want to talk about it at on set. They agree to go to Abby’s apartment after work and try to figure out how to make the transition from a threesome to a threesome minus Laura.
Their talking in Abby’s apartment very quickly turns to sex, with Brandon telling Abby that his feelings for her are more than just physical. Really? They seem just physical right now. Their sheets time is interrupted by Laura knocking at Abby’s door! Eeks! Brandon hides in the bathroom and Abby invites Laura in, who wants to end things with Abby before she jeopardizes her relationship with Brandon. Seems fair.
Laura leaves and Brandon admits that he wants to stay with his girlfriend rather than try something knew with Abby.
Well, at least they didn’t get caught. Oh wait.
Laura saw Brandon’s car in the parking lot and decided to remodel it with slashed tires and a nice pattern from her key. Brandon has to physically remove Laura and her claws from Abby, but he can’t stop her from threatening every single eye-witness at the Lux with death if anyone speaks to the press.
Then for good measure she pushes Abby into the pool. Is it wrong that this scene really makes me want to go swimming? Oh summer, I already miss you.
Now that Beth has fixed the electric at The Lux, Eddie is ready to evict his newest tenants. Beth buys them more time by telling Eddie that Simon is on his way to shoot a new show and Eddie backs off.
Unfortunately, Beth doesn’t back off . As soon as they get to set, Beth is upset with the way Simon is being treated while he’s acting and eventually drags her brother off the set, forfeiting his paycheque and risking a possible lawsuit.
Back at The Lux, Simon is furious. He’s tired of sleeping in Beth’s car and knows that the job he just lost was the only thing keeping them off the streets.
On last week’s dramatic episode of The L.A. Complex, we saw Raquel hit rock bottom with her DUI and get a small piece of good fortune when her agent landed her a role on Celebrity Half Way House. But Raquel isn’t happy about her new role playing herself and if we know Raquel, the drama won’t be far behind. It’s time for group therapy and Raquel has found someone that may be more of a friend than an enemy in Rick. Like, Alicia’s childhood-star-turned-porn-star boyfriend. That is, until she realizes that he’s acting.
Raquel is in her one on one therapy and quickly realizes that the producer is looking for a bitch on the show and wants it to be Raquel. But Raquel wants to be cast as more than the mean girl when she gets out of rehab and knows she has to keep her cool and show the nice side of her personality.
Unfortunately, Raquel didn’t plan on one of the other patients being encouraged to thrash Raquel’s room. She quickly loses her cool and attacks the patient, stopping herself once she realizes the camera’s are on.
Ready for plan b, Raquel corners Rick and turns off his mic. She takes her precious two minutes to convince Rick that he needs to be the villain on the show if he wants America to take notice of him again. Also, these two are hilarious together.
At group therapy later that day, Rick takes Raquel’s advice and makes fun of a patient while he’s sharing his feelings. Raquel swoops in and offers a hug, a pat on the back, and a Oscar-winning smile for the camera.
Kaldrick is at the Shelter helping Dawn and his father load the new items, including all the air conditioners Kaldrick bought for the residents. Walter offers to thank him by taking the three of them out for lunch, but when they get to the restaurant, Walter ‘remembers’ that he has to be back at the shelter and leaves the two for a date. Kaldrick tries to keep his attention on Dawn, but when a cute guy drops his number next to Kaldrick, he loses focuses.
Dawn asks Kaldrick to go on another date and suggests that night, but Kaldrick makes up an excuse about having to go to the studio. Instead, he goes home and calls the stranger, who agrees to meet him that night. But before he can leave, Walter stops Kaldrick and says that he’s proud of his son, something Kaldrick has never heard. Kaldrick decides to blow off both the studio and the stranger and instead try to make a relationship with Dawn work.
