Felicity goes to an art studio on campus and wanders around, taking it all in. Various students paint, draw, or sculpt. Eventually, she stops next to an easel where Simon Rex is painting. Felicity says hello and that she's just watching him. He says it's okay. She asks if his painting is for a class. Simon says that it is, and names the teacher of the class. Felicity asks if the teacher is any good, and Simon says that she's great. Scintillating conversation, here. I can see why these two end up sleeping together. (Hope I didn't spoil that for you.) Simon takes a break and asks Felicity if she's a freshman. Felicity asks if it's that obvious. Simon says that she "sort of has that wide-eyed thing going on." Felicity is embarrassed that her naïveté is that obvious, but Simon tells her that it's fine, and that a few years back, he had that same look. He really is a horrible actor. I'm glad they didn't really make him a recurring character. ["No, they just gave him a job on Jack & Jill." -- Wing Chun] Felicity pauses and then asks if there are any openings in any of the studio classes, in case she wants to transfer in. Simon tells her that all of the studio classes are filled until the end of the year, but that she should apply for next semester. Okay, Simon Rex is basically a piece of wood. A decent-looking porn star piece of wood, but a piece of wood nonetheless. Felicity says that next semester seems like a million years away. Felicity compliments his painting and then walks away. Simon calls after her, as you knew he would. He tells her that the studio is open all of the time, and if she wanted to "hang out and use some of the materials, [he] wouldn't say anything." Felicity brightens at this news.
Noel catches Meghan as she is entering her room, and asks if she's seen Felicity Meghan snarks that she can't wait until he stops asking her that question. Noel asks if that's a yes. I can't believe I thought Noel was cute during the first season. He's so annoying. I thought he was, like, dorkily endearing, but he's just dorkily dorksome. Meghan says she hasn't seen Felicity, and then asks if Todd died yet. Noel sarcastically says, "Oh, that's nice," and then reports that as far as he knows, Todd is making a recovery. Noel keeps glancing around and seems really antsy. Meghan is still trying to open her door and reports that her lock is stuck. Noel promises to report it, and then says that he and Felicity have a date tonight, and asks Meghan to remind Felicity if Meghan sees her. It's pretty sad when you have to remind your girlfriend that you have a date. Meghan suddenly gets interested and asks if Felicity blew Noel off. Noel denies it. Meghan says that it's a bad sign. Noel still denies that Felicity blew him off, despite evidence to the contrary. Meghan finally gets her door open and slams it in Noel's face just as he asks her to tell Felicity that he's in his room. Just then, one of the gloved women walks down the hall while talking on the world's largest cell phone.
