Trishelle and Steven still don't know where they stand after the visit from Brian, but Steven is starting to realize that he might actually care about Trishelle and is finally speaking his mind. With his feelings out in the open, they decide to remain just friends, but Trishelle loves him and doesn't know how to deal with it. She wants to touch Steven and be intimate, but is unsure of where the boundaries are.
Similarly, Irulan is having trouble accepting her feelings for Alton and letting go of her relationship with Gabe. Clinging to the security that Gabe has provided, Irulan tries to get in touch with him, but he's not buying. While out on the town, Alton and Irulan share some insights into their relationship. Before they can delve deeper, Alton gets a little out of control and knocks over the drinks of one of Frank's friends. Alton blames the woman for spilling the drinks and when another guy enters the situation, he ignores Frank's attempts to ease the tension. Alton nearly goes to blows with the guy and is upset because he feels like Frank didn't have his back. Back at the suite, Irulan and Alton agree that they have some unresolved feelings and consider getting back with each other.
Meanwhile, it's Steven's birthday and Trishelle is working overtime to make it something special. During his birthday party, the boundaries that existed in the "friendship" of Steven and Trishelle are broken down and he whisks her from the party into the bedroom. In bed together, the couple tells each other that they love each other but the next morning, Steven remembers what he said, and is again confused about his true intentions with Trishelle.
