This episode begins as Nick, which has been in San Francisco for only five days, comes walking in the house introducing everyone to his new fiancée Heather. Everyone seems happy other than Victoria. She seems to sense something about Heather that is not quite correct.

Heather is a society gal that loves being cared for by many suitors. When she agrees to stay with the Barkley's for a few days she gets introduced to living outside the lights and activities of San Francisco. Even the most novice viewer can see that Heather seems to be favoring Heath over Nick.

During the night Heather is seen by Heath crying. When Heather runs to Nicks arms, he sees Heath. Thinking the worse Nick starts a fight that ends when he is knocked off a hill and lands on a large rock. Nick's back could be broken.

Nick needs a doctor and it will take an all out effort to get him back to the ranch. And during this ordeal we will learn if Heather decides to stay with Nick or move on with her life.

This episode just did not have chemistry. The best part of the entire episode is the last two minutes.
