The boys are at Babylon. A cute guy hits on Michael (Hal Sparks), and gives him his number, but Michael, to Brian's (Gale Harold) chagrin, tells him he's in a relationship, and they don't fool around. Justin (Randy Harrison) tells Brian that he's decided to go the Pittsburgh Institute of Fine Arts. Ted (Scott Lowell) is approached by a tweaked-out Blake (Dean Armstrong), but Emmett (Peter Paige) intercedes, pushing Blake away. Later, Ted finds Blake passed out on the bathroom floor, and takes him to the hospital. Ted stays at the hospital all night, waiting for Blake to wake up. Brian goes to the bathhouse, where he's somewhat surprised to find David (Chris Potter), who had told Michael he was at a business dinner, being manually stimulated by a strange man. The next day, Justin gets his acceptance letter. Ted lets Blake stay with him, and Blake says he's going to quit drugs. At the gym, Emmett gives Ted a hard time for taking in Blake. But when Ted gets home, Blake is cooking dinner for him. Brian interrupts Michael and David at the diner, and talks to David privately about what happened, warning him not to hurt Michael. Jennifer (Sherry Miller) reacts happily to Justin's news, but tells him that her and his father are getting divorced, which makes Justin reconsider his college plans. David confesses to Michael, telling him that he didn't have sex with anyone at the baths. Michael is hurt and storms out. Brian, who doesn't believe in monogamy, suggests Michael forgive David and move on. Michael decides to hook up with the guy he met at Babylon. Ted loses his wallet, and accuses Blake of stealing it. Blake pleads his innocence, but Ted angrily throws him back out on the street.
