Brian and Justin have hot quartet-sex with a guy couple which lasts for years thanks to sharing sex with others, to Brian's non-monogamous taste. Ted is about to have his plastic surgery, Emmett helps him trough last minute doubts. Brian prepares a superheroes party in Babylon, somehow hoping to lure Mikey back to the inner city. Hunter is happy in his school's swim team thanks to Ben's paternal support, but when he hits his head and bleeds in the pool, HIV-panic strikes, the seropositive kid considers dropping out completely even before the gay bashing begins. Debbie has everything she wants, and time to enjoy it, but now envies lesbian Loretta Pye who has 'her' job and popularity, yet helps her when husband Daryl claims her back. The three way-split custody makes all parents unhappy. Written by KGF Vissers

Episode #5.4
20 May 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is sure one of my favourite episodes. There is so much in it that I find great.

I don't understand why Lindsay got custody as well. Her and Mel were already separated when the baby was born so there can't be any real emotional connection, just as there is no biological. And Mel annoys me with constantly freaking out about Michael, it's not like she knew from the start how to deal with babies. But I like how it makes it all a bit complex

I loved several conversations on this episode. Especially the one between Justin and Lindsay when she is worried they won't stay friends. Greatly written and one can really feel for her. Also the one between Emmett and Ted before his operation. Beautiful dialogue, great acting.

I liked Debbie story as well. Her jealousy towards Loretta was hilarious and she was great at helping Loretta against her husband. Looks like there will be more about Loretta walling in love with Debbie and I am looking forward to that!

Absolutely loved Brian at the dinner table Very well done for his character. I also felt bad for him when Michael didn't show up to Babylon. It is always sad when friends disappear because they decide to live boring, suburban family lives.

And the scene where other students find out that Hunter "has AIDS" is great. I felt so mad at those people! Really am looking forward to see how Hunter will deal with this
