Van, uncharacteristically, takes his job to heart and puts up a home office in the garage, and puts his nose to the grindstone, insisting that his partner, Reba, do the same. Kyra has misgivings about moving out of Reba's house and finds herself wanting to return.
Going against what she would term her better judgment, Reba goes along with the plan of letting Kyra, after having moved back in with her, drink an occasional beer. And Van takes it upon himself to address the issue of Jake's new passion for basketball.
Reba deals with Kyra and Cheyenne, who are at odds because Kyra feels her sister can not get enough of the family spotlight after Barbara Jean goes overboard in creating a more relaxed atmosphere about Cheyenne, which just sends Van overboard.
When Barbara Jean's station brings in a new intern, she's convinced that the youngster is there to replace her, while everyone around Reba tries to convince her that the youngster is really a younger impression of Barbara Jean.
Kyra announces she is not going to college. She wants to start her life and travel with the band. Reba insists she goes to college, forcing Kyra to move out on her own. Cheyenne & Van buy furniture for their home.
Van accidentally starts a fire at his and Cheyenne's new house, forcing them to temporarily move back in with Reba. Realizing they may not be ready for such a big responsibility, they ask Reba if they can stay with her, but she surprises everyone by turning them down. Barbra Jean seriously considers accepting a job offer from a station in Arkansas, so it's left to Reba to get her to turn down the offer and stay with her family where she belongs.
