The boys have made a pact that they won't get involved with the girls in the house. They are going to treat them like sisters. Not surprisingly, this pact has helped improve the Lori-Kevin relationship. Lori's no longer enamored with him and Kevin has his eyes on Beth, a model he met at Nell's. Kevin and Beth connect almost immediately and quickly start dating seriously. Kevin likes her "because we can finish each other's sentences. It's very rare when you have that with someone." Unfortunately, it's the roomies' last month in NY and Kevin doesn't think it makes sense to get serious with someone when he's going to be leaving soon.
While Kevin deals with the trials and tribulations of love, Lori is busy preparing for her final show with the Bostonians, her college a capella group. This final performance is so important to her that she's willing to get involved in a hum war with current arguing champion, Coral. Lori's frustrated because she can't pick a final song to sing or find a place where she can rehearse without annoying anyone.
The whole gang is going on a road trip to Boston, and on top of rehearsing for her show, Lori is planning the entire trip. She rouses the gang , gets them packed and dressed, and hustles them into the cars to Boston...only to get lost once they get there. Despite driving in circles and little fender benders, they finally make it to the show. Lori brings back memories of the casting special with a rousing rendition of "Respect" and then debuts her final song. She chooses "Hold On" by Sarah McLachlan because it embodies everything she's feeling. The solo is a success and everyone is amazed by her performance. As Malik says, "Lori has a phenomenal voice and a great presence on stage. She looks like she's supposed to be there."
