The roommates throw Arissa a big birthday bash but her demanding family gets in the way of her happiness.
Just as Arissa is making improvements in her life, her mom gives her a call and stirs things up. After yelling at Arissa and informing her that a woman who Arissa filed a restraining order against has filed one back, Arissa tries to reasonably explain to her mother that she has done nothing wrong. Arissa and her mom fight and so she gets off the phone and starts crying. Steven thinks that Arissa's family is "toxic" and that she should cut them off but Alton tells Arissa that she'll need them in the long run.
While one roommate is upset, another is ecstatic. Frank complains to Brynn that he can't find anyone he's attracted to in Vegas and realizes he misses his ex-girlfriend Emily who is coming to visit. Instead of treating her like a friend like he planned, he is immediately romantic and the two seem to want to rekindle their relationship. The next day Emily leaves and Frank thinks about whether he should follow his heart or not and pursue something with Emily again.
Meanwhile, it's Arissa's birthday and she chooses to go out to dinner with her roommates instead of with her uncle who is in town. Uncle Robert claims that she blew him off and he breaks her down much like her mother does. The two begrudgingly hug with Arissa deciding at that moment to not allow her family to berate and belittle her anymore. Arissa thanks her roommates for giving her the best birthday ever and has never felt so cared about before.
Frank also ends the night on a happy note after he calls Emily and they agree to give their relationship a shot.
