Darkness descends on the friends as they make choices out of fear. Dory is confronted by Keith's ex-wife. Portia will do anything to be cast in a play about the Manson Murder. Meanwhile, Drew attempts to escape to Hong Kong.
Dory drops in on Keith's funeral, Drew investigates flowers left at his work, Portia severs ties with her mother, Elliott endures group therapy at rehab, and Julian realizes Mary may be an imperfect role model.
Dory and Drew receive a visit from hot-on-the-trail Officer Joy Hartman, make a shocking discovery at who knows what they did, meet up with a renewed Elliott, and still make it to Portia's play on time.
The gang must get sixty thousand dollars to their blackmailer, leading to a day of cat food tins, mistaken identities, and tasers. On the other side of town, Joy follows Fat Franky, which does not end as anticipated.
