The morning after, Ashley comes to pick up Spencer for school and discusses the situation with Kyla and Aiden, which irritates Spencer, as Spencer feels Ashley shouldn't care what her ex-boyfriend is doing. Also to Spencer and Ashley's chagrin, Spencer's mother Paula sets Spencer up on a blind date with a boy from church.

At school, Clay finds out Chelsea is going to college in Paris, while Glen talks to Madison about not being able to pass his scholarship physical before popping some more pain medication. Kyla tells Aiden that she isn't actually a version and used to sleep around alot but she has matured since then and is abstaining from sex in till she finds the right guy, which annoys Aiden, however he still wants to date her regardless.

The Carlin's attend dinner with Patrick and all have a good time but after the dinner, Patrick confides in Spencer that he actually has a girlfriend but his parents don't like her, so they helped set up the blind date, mirroring Spencer's situation. Meanwhile Glen goes to the bar Madison is working at and charms her into having sex with him while she's on the clock, Glen however can't seem to perform due to his medication and Madison leaves in disgust.

As this happens, Clay goes to talk to Chelsea about going to Paris, telling her she should go and that he supports her 100% after seeing her talent, leading them to have sex at Chelsea's work station.

At the end of the night, Madison is seen forging her work tally numbers in order to steal money from her workplace. At the Carlin household, Spencer tells her mom that Patrick has left and that he wasn't interested, leading Paula to tell Spencer she has plenty more friends with sons her age.
