And Tom asks Lucy out.
Matt's bid to be Harriet's date to a dinner held in her honor ends in a tie--with a 15-year-old Star Wars-obsessed snowboarder. Cal films a promotion for a video game with live snakes, and one gets loose in the studio. When Danny tries to apologize to Jordan for his obsessive behavior, he accidentally locks them both on the roof. Tom breaks his date with Lucy so he can go to Harriet's dinner with Kim Tao on Jack's orders, only to find out that Lucy got an invitation too. Darius and Simon's feud continues.
