Welcome back to the summer of '97. Last we saw things were sweltering between Sarah and Chloe as Chloe coyly lured Sarah into her bed. But why is Sarah lookin' morose? Did she forget that Chloe's boyfriend, Adrian, was still in the mix?
Band practice is starting and where the hell are Sarah and Alex? We're hanging on the telephone, but there is no response from band conductor, Sarah. And Tamsin's "olive-branch-extending" phone call to Alex only magnifies Alex' jealous rage at Tamsin's new boyfriend, Robin. Where will these frazzled emotions drive her?
As the band seems to be falling apart, Tamsin and Cassandra try to be the glue as they paste and tape flyers for their first concert. And what's that? Visions of Missing Alex? Is Tamsin sipping on robitussin too? Serendipitously, band leader, Sarah meets them as passes on pearls of wisdom as well as a few posters too. Tamsin uses Sarah's advice, yet it's resisted by a sick and bitter Alex. How can these two patch up and perform in time for Miss Spent Youth's debut?
Our two runaways, Sarah and Alex find sanctuary on the cliff over the Potomac River, and within each other. Exchanging candy, berries, and advice; Alex shares a dream which Sarah was in. Things grow uncomfortable as Alex pours her heart to Sarah. That's typical when friends tell one another of dreams in which they're "kissing in other places".
Don't throw your trash in my backyard, my backyard, my backyard. Don't throw your trash in my backyard-- my backyard's full. Time for some female bonding x 4-- in the form of Sarah, Alex, Chloe, & Cassandra. Throw in some waxy old school candy. Throw in a gorgeous secret clubhouse/condemned building. Throw in some advice. Throw in some "reindeers gracefully leaping into the parents..." (WTF?) But who's catching here? Sarah and Cassandra try to unhinge Alex's stage fright -- in the hopes that maybe Alex can sing back-up at their band's first concert. But what is Chloe ...
Chloe is now in a relationship with Sarah? Adrian? And does anyone remember Travis? Chloe, Chloe, Chloe can't you see that your whims just hypnotize me? Bibs & sailor hats - it's all so cute as we watch our favorite couple struggle to eat crawfish. Last time, we saw Chloe's deceptive swagger swayed Adrian from any assumptions or ideas of his honeybun with another man, let alone Sarah! HOW naive is Adrian? HOW can Chloe think she can have both? AND WHO will be paying the bill?
