Jenny rehearses her cast for “Lez Girls” and throws a wild bash to introduce her cast to their real-life counterparts, which results in delight for some (Shane who is amused when the actress portraying her insists she’s only “gay for pay”), consternation for others (Bette who is disgusted that the actress playing her is not black) and bittersweet melancholy for one (Alice who is shocked at the resemblance to Dana of the actress playing her late lover).
When a celebrity athlete uses a nasty homophobic slur in an ugly, publicly anti-gay statement, Alice uses evidence of his secret gay life to “out” him on her web site. When her post goes viral and results in a media firestorm, Alice is suddenly thrust into the spotlight as a gay rights advocate but the attention and Alice’s militant stance are too much for Tasha, who is still trying to fly under the military’s radar. The incident causes the couple to break up.
The fallout over the violent performance art in Jodi’s class worsens, with the Board of Trustees and Phyllis now dragged into the situation. Torn between trying to protect her lover/employee from herself, and recognizing her urge to intervene may be a result of type-A control issues, Bette needs advice and finds that Tina is the only one to whom she can turn.
The party-girl owners of SheBar continue to rip off all of Kit’s innovative business ideas, including serving breakfast and a drive-through window but their mutual attraction to Shane, who unsuccessfully attempts to remain neutral, threatens to derail a business partnership that is thus far proving quite lucrative.
Though the rest of the gang dismisses his suspicions, Max grows increasingly wary of Jenny’s overly attentive new assistant Adele, and manages to prove that some of Adele’s self-professed backstory is a blatant lie. Adele covers the discrepancy smoothly, and no one else seems to care Tina even asks her to keep an eye on Jenny and secretly alert her to any developments about which the studio would be concerned.
Phyllis is stunned when Joyce uses their break-up as leverage in winning back her divorce case.
When Jenny and her star/protégé Nikki hook up in a closet during the party, their love making is witnessed by none other than Adele, who takes a disturbing interest in the scene.
