Normally a prude, Shavonda is learning that she enjoys reading the books in the house on Eroticism. So much so that she calls Landon into her bedroom to read him some passages. When she is finished, Landon walks out feeling more sexually frustrated than ever.
It's been quite some time since Landon's had sex and believes that things are pretty close to breaking down between him and Shavonda. Pretty soon their relationship it's going to go one way or the other. "He ain't getting' nothing from me," Shavonda narrates. Meanwhile, Karamo is counting down the days until they sleep together, while Sarah and Mel think Shavonda won't cross the line.
The guys and gals hit Pure, a gay club. Landon drinks a few two many martinis and becomes wild-frat-party-boy and dangerously flings Sarah around the dance floor. "Landon doesn't act right when he's drunk," Shavonda says "And it's starting to get old." Could her crush be fading?
The next morning, Landon says he doesn't remember the walk home where he got in Shavonda's face.
Mel, who doesn't always like to do what the other roommates like to do, went off by herself last night to a bar where everybody knows your name, called Drinker's Tavern. Everyone was, like, sooo nice to her and she found "serenity" in this little bar. Apparently, being in Philadelphia is not enough of a vacation for this Santa Cruz girl and she needed to get away from the house. When Mel talks about her night, she refuses to tell the roommates the name of the bar and MJ is offended that she is trying to make them feel like the rest of the house is not welcome there.
When Sarah talks about her bulimia, Mel chimes in that she could "never do that to herself." Sarah says she has learned that not everyone has a right to have an opinion on everything, especially actions that don't affect them.
Sarah recounts Mel's reaction to Willie and they both agree that she is very one-sided and it is hard for her to understand why someone else is why the way they are. Karamo, once again the voice of reason, says if they would just talk to Melanie, they would understand why she has sort of an abrasive tone. It's not always coming from a malicious place, he theorizes.
The next morning, Mel is seriously hung-over from another night out at Drinker's Tavern, but she and Sarah have to volunteer at the PSPCA with animals. Sarah notes that there is tension between the two, but they are both trying to understand one another. Back at the house, Sarah asks Mel about how she was adopted. Mel's mother was seventeen when she had her, so Mel was put in foster care for six months and then was adopted. Mel talks about how her parents fought all the time when she was young and explains that was her past and it's something she went though, but she is stronger for it.
Shavonda and Landon go for a walk and she opens up about how his drunkenness is scaring her. Landon is glad Shavonda is talking to him and feels bad about getting in Vonda's face and making the roommates uncomfortable. He vows to change his ways.
When they arrive home, Landon suggests he and Vonda sleep in the confessional where it's cooler. Lying next to Shavonda, Landon asks her if she is interested in her at all. "As a friend," Shavonda says. Shavonda explains that even though she and Shawn broke up, she appreciates him more. "I do not have a crush on Landon anymore, solely because of his drinking." Shavonda states unconvincingly. Either way, Landon is cool if friendship is all Shavonda wants...
