Having confessed about her secret call-girl profession, Lauren begs David for forgiveness, but David refuses since Lauren put her job and career first (as she always does). Meanwhile, Ella schemes to save her job by wanting to hack into the WPK computer files to erase the fake evidence against her that Amanda planted, but Jonah strongly disagrees with her underhanded tactics, so Ella looks to David for help. David's new role as a restaurant owner is put to the test after he loses some of his staff on the day an important food critic has come to review Coal. In an effort to get David to forgive her, Lauren pitches in as a waitress and hostess and helps him out of his jam. Elsewhere with Drew's help, Riley throws a fund raiser for her education foundation, but when Drew (motivated by greed) tries to increase the donations by auctioning off a date with Riley, things go awry after Drew and a jealous Jonah get into a bidding war over her.
