Kevin's office. His secretary buzzes in and tells him a "Mr. Valentin" is here for his appointment. "Mr. Valentin" turns out to be our old friend Scotty Wandell. Currently, my hierarchy for Kevin's boyfriends goes Jason > Scotty > Chad, so Scotty will certainly do. He says he used the fake name because of the acrimonious way he and Kevin left things off. Scotty, as usual, overestimates Kevin's capacity for pettiness and holding a grudge. ...Okay, he totally correctly estimates Kevin's capacity for pettiness and holding a grudge, but not when it comes to him. They both kind of agree to regret their little one-night relapse last year, and then Scotty begins to explain why he's here: he needs a lawyer, and preferably one who can be "flexible with payment" (heh -- still always about money with these two). Seems Scotty got pinched for a one-glass-of-wine DUI by a cop who took one look at Scotty's "pink shorts and Queen t-shirt" and got homophobic in a hurry. Okay, I don't think for one second that Scotty's being manipulative here, but he had to know that this case would push all the right buttons with Kevin. Also: pink shorts and a Queen t-shirt? Oh my God, Scotty is Xander Crews! Kevin notes that Scotty was pulled over for a broken taillight and says he can fight the ticket, but he wants him to take a cab next time. "The thought of you in jail is bad, but someone hurt is worse." Okay, I know a network TV show pretty much has to say something like this in this day and age, but a tsk-tsk about drunk anything from a Walker is tough to take. Scotty's too grateful for the legal help to object to the lecture, though.
Tommy and Julia's, where Julia and her parents are talking about people they know and excluding Tommy. Ben mentions someone who's an architect, and Tommy tries to get a foot in the conversational door by saying that architecture is a tough job. "Yeah, it's even tougher when you don't have Daddy's money to get you started," Ben says. Asshole! Julia doesn't say anything. Her parents ask why she never went into architecture. She says she always wanted to be a dancer, and Ben makes a joke about her two left feet. This gets them all laughing, and Tommy, completely on the outside looking in, says it's nice to hear her laugh again. Ben drinks to that and backhandedly compliments Tommy on the wine they're drinking. It's tense, as Tommy defends his lack of vineyard experience by saying he works hard. Beth makes the save by asking Julia if they could take Lizzy on an excursion tomorrow. Ben says he and Tommy should do something tomorrow as well. Tommy's mouth says "Sure," but his face says, "One of us is ending up dead by noon, old man."
