Ted (Scott Lowell) and Emmett (Peter Paige) are hanging out at Babylon when Michael (Hal Sparks) shows up. He explains that David went on a camping trip, so he decided to come back to Pittsburgh for a visit. Brian (Gale Harold), whom Michael finds in the back room, doesn't seem thrilled to see him. Emmett tells Michael he's been having trouble finding a new roommate. Justin (Randy Harrison) is undergoing rehabilitative therapy, trying to recover from the brutal bashing on prom night. He may never regain the full use of his right hand. He keeps asking about Brian, who has been visiting him in the hospital every night, but staying outside his room so no one knows he's there. Ted and Emmett act as beards for Melanie (Michelle Clunie) and Lindsay (Thea Gill) at the wedding of Lindsay's sister, Lynette (Heather Hodgson), who doesn't want Lindsay's lesbian relationship to spoil her special day. Provoked by some insensitive comments, Lindsay ends up making a very public marriage proposal. Daphne (Makyla Smith) helps the shaky Justin sneak out of the house to look for Brian. Emmett and Ted discover that Michael's been lying about the reason for his visit. A homophobic judge (Frank Pellegrino) gives Chris Hobbs (Alec McClure) a shockingly light sentence for nearly killing Justin. Jennifer (Sherry Miller) thanks Brian for his concern about Justin, and asks him to stay away.
