Bette goes away for the weekend with Jodi to a mountain cabin upstate where Bette soon becomes uncomfortable with Jodi's brash artist friends. Back in Los Angeles, Tina's dating woes finally improve when she goes on a date with an attractive art collector. Meanwhile, Max ponders a mutual same-sex attraction to Jodi's sign-language interpreter Tom (Jon Wolfe Nelson). The Planet is burglarized and Kit is attacked after hours; when Bette hears the news, she leaves the cabin early and Jodi joins her. Tasha meets with a military lawyer, named Captain Curtis Beech (Ted Whittall), for help in her upcoming "homosexual conduct" case. Jenny tries to adjust herself with her new assistant, Adele, who seems to enjoy Jenny's demanding and difficult requests. As Helena slowly adjusts to prison life, her angry mother, Peggy, finally arrives to post her bail. But despite being free, Helena realizes that she's not entirely free from her mother's grasp and decides to skip town for good.
