Kitty and Robert are preparing to board a plane, Kitty taking this opportunity to hector him about meeting with Courtney. Rob says he has no intention of begging his ex-wife not to tell anyone about an affair he never had. He also tries to hide behind the whole "Americans hate politicians" argument, which is a flimsy one in this case, particularly because America's hatred for politicians and their glee at tearing them down via scandals is at the root of Kitty's argument. Kitty manages to bottom-line it: "You won't survive a sex scandal." Rob asks if she's saying this as a politico or as an angry girlfriend. Once again, I don't get this storyline. How are Kitty's roles as a fiancée and campaign advisor at odds here? Seems to me her girlfriendly impulse to fire back at Courtney coincides exactly with the political advice Rob's getting from Travis, right? What is the point of this? Anyway, Kitty also points out that refusing to engage Courtney on this makes her wonder, in both of her super distinct and contradictory roles, how much faith he has in himself. She ends up making this clearer later on, but just in case you miss what Kitty's actually saying just like Rob currently is, Kitty means: "Your silence is making me wonder if you're not just as guilty as Courtney says you are." Rob and Kitty agree that they hate this situation and board the plane.
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.
