Frankie asks her young sister, Mamie, what she would do in her situation and Mamie says she would stay in San Diego, even if she was unhappy, but that's what makes her different from Frankie.
Frankie hopes that she will be told by the producer that she can go home, clear her head and then come back to San Diego. She really doesn't want to give up and is anxious and nervous to learn about her fate. Kevin, the producer, says they want her to stay, but he understands if she has to leave, BUT she won't be able to come back if she leaves. "I just don't see myself getting happy here," Frankie says in response. Kevin asks her to sleep on her decision.
Frankie fills her roommates in on the situation and explains that each of them have found a really good friend in someone at the house; someone they can be their self around. She believes the six other roommates have bonded on a much different level. Jacquese is hurt by this comment because he feels like he has been there for Frankie time and time again, but she does not acknowledge that. Cameran asks what the real Frankie is like and Frankie responds by saying she is typically a happy person. Robin doesn't believe her and thinks she's coping out. Robin would love to see Frankie show the world who she is in her last two months in San Diego, instead of choosing to go home.
"This just isn't for me. I thought it would be cool, but it's not." Frankie says she thought she wanted to start over and have something new for her life, but she realizes that everything that she's ever had at home is really everything she ever wanted, so she decides to go home and surprise her boyfriend.
Frankie talks to Dave on Halloween and reminds him it was their first date ever. The girls think that Frankie is really leaving because of Dave. Frankie insists this is not true. Meanwhile, Frankie's mom is trying to be supportive even though she doesn't agree with her daughter's decision. But after an argument on the phone, her mom tells her she will not drive her to the location of Dave's concert and Frankie is pissed.
Frankie dresses up as Juliet because later that evening, she will be meeting her boyfriend at a concert where he will be dressed up as Romeo. Brad thinks this is romantic as hell and he knows that Frankie came out here and risked her relationship and now she is going home to salvage what she can.
Frankie says her "going home" is her way of admitting that she screwed up. She will now face what she did and make it better. Jacquese is really going to miss her and he hopes that she can find what makes her happy. The roommates bid her adieu at the airport and go back to the house to commence their Halloween celebration.
The housemates get dressed up for the holiday and start the night off by throwing pumpkins off the balcony. Some of the roommates note that now that Frankie is gone, it already seems like a weight has been lifted off of everyone shoulders. Frankie generated a lot of negative energy, which brought the other roommates down.
Two days later, Frankie hasn't even called her former roommates and Jacquese is taking her departure really hard. Four days later, she still hasn't called and the roommates are starting to think that she doesn't really care about them. Cameran remembers when they first arrived in San Diego that Frankie says she was good at two things: being sad and running away. Finally, Frankie calls the house and tells Cameran what happened with Dave and she sounds really happy, but Cameran doesn't really believe that Frankie is as happy as she claims to be. During their conversation, Cameran gets the sense that Frankie was basically saying that she is much too smart to be on the Real World.
