Darcy is living with Steph and her flatmate Chris. She is clearly struggling to come to terms with her past but refuses to admit it. Steph's support of Darcy is unwavering but has put any chance of a future with Emily in jeopardy. Without divulging Darcy's secret, Steph tries, unsuccessfully, to convince Emily that her and Darcy aren't back together. Meanwhile, Kristen and Rachel begin an awkward courtship. Having not been in a relationship since her ex left, Rachel is reluctant to commit. Kristen doesn't deal with rejection well and soon falls into old habits.
