Meanwhile, Phyllis' husband, Leonard, drops by unannounced at Alice's place interrupting her and Tasha's romantic morning-after to unload on them about his midlife problems, while Helena and Papi also drop by to offer their sympathy. Meanwhile, Bette is falling hard for Jodi and lets her emotions and jealousy interfere with her work when she spots Jodi with her ex-partner Amy, a fellow deaf student. Kit manages to crack through Papi's hard emotional outer shell... with unexpected consequences. Also, Shane's father, Gabriel, arrives back in town wanting to take Shay with him back to Portland, and Max learns that his mother has died from a brief bout with cancer.
