Storyline

In the workshop, Derek seems to be changing both his professional and personal allegiance from Ivy to Karen, which places both women in an awkward and embarrassing situation. While Ivy continues to take her frustration out on Karen, Karen seeks support from Dev, who provides little as he is focused on his own issue of a job promotion. Despite Karen feeling that one of Dev's professional associates has her sights on him, Karen is able to funnel her energies and channel a little bit of Marilyn in helping Dev in his cause. Meanwhile, Leo gets into a situation with the police, which is bad timing for Julia as Frank is out of town, she has to complete the book, and her mind is focused on trying to avoid Michael (without success), with who the sexual tension continues. Tom indirectly comes to Leo's rescue, which factors into Tom's continuing question of whether he likes John as a potential boyfriend or not. Written by Huggo

Goofs

Tom refers to Leo's release from police custody on a "bench warrant". A bench warrant is a judicial order for an arrest, not a release. Tom may have meant a "desk appearance ticket" but if so that contradicts the statement that Leo was not arrested, since an appearance ticket is an arrest. See more »
