Gentile gay gentleman Gavin Putinski, who feared from the start to be discriminated, ends up loosing unfairly, due to a hostile judge and Nick being overburdened. Burton has accepted the city as bulk client and thus lost a corporate client Nick and Jake had been working over for months. Nick tries to make clear to young Kyle Plunkett he's entitled to meet his father Bill, but the boy's mother wickedly keeps poisoning his mind with terrible lies. Burton sympathizes with a widower whose hobby, an aviary, is contested by the neighbors as burdensome, but still wins for the city a conviction. Lulu feels stalked, finds shelter with Nick and Kim but still turns back to Brian.
