Production finally gets underway on “Lez Girls,” but Jenny struggles with location issues, an emotionally needy star, and a cast made up of several straight actresses experiencing great difficulty feigning erotic passion on camera with their female partners.
Working on the film as its hair designer, Shane is only to happy to lend a creative hand by demonstrating the proper techniques for a public display of lesbian sensuality with a willing and attractive actress.
Unable to control or suppress their desires any longer, Bette and Tina end up in each other’s arms only to suffer the guilt of infidelity when they realize how seriously Bette is betraying Jodi.
The latter doesn’t make things easier when she nobly offers to resign from her professorship in order to take political heat off Bette in the wake of a student’s controversial “feigned suicide” performance art. Phyllis is willing to accept Jodi’s decision but Bette refuses to consider the possibility.
A wild house party is a raucous good time for Phyllis until her daughter arrives at an inopportune moment and witnesses her mother’s uninhibited behavior, driving a wedge between them even as Phyllis’s high-profile divorce from Leonard is still looming.
Shane receives a double-dose of the conniving, greedy, and slightly deranged scheming of SheBar owners Cindy and Dawn so she’s the first to suspect foul play when rats are discovered at The Planet and the restaurant is immediately shut down by the health department. A furious Kit knows it’s time for the gloves to come off.
On the set of “Lez Girls,” Adele’s low-key but unsettling obsession with Jenny becomes more obvious when she mimics her idol’s haircut (with a little help from Shane). Nevertheless, Adele saves the day when she spins the revelation of Jenny and Nikki’s sexual relationship in a positive direction.
