Melissa returns to the chateau and Zora pretends she's happy to see her. What? No morning after shots? I'm so disappointed, because you know the conversation on the plane ride back had to be stilted at best. Melissa says that she had an amazing time. Zora asks if they had fun and Melissa gushes, "I did, Zoooor!" That's annoying in the same way that it is when Torrance's boyfriend calls her "Tor" in Bring It On. Zora uses some mysterious secret sign language to ask if Melissa and Evan kissed. Actually, it's not all that mysterious. She kisses her finger and points it at Melissa, who totally doesn't get it at first, but then claims they just kissed a little, because she's "not a first-move kind of girl, at all, but then, you know, whatever." So much meaning in that "But then, you know, whatever." Melissa and Zora smile at each other. Zora says she doesn't want them all to be hanging out with one guy and all be making out with him. The way she said that kind of sounded like she wants to be the only one making out with him and fuck those other bitches. I know the editors want us to like Zora, but she bugs the crap out of me.
In the Smokers' Lounge of Slander (a location with which I am extremely familiar), Melissa tells Sarah that Zora almost had a heart attack when they told her to bring a bikini on her date. Melissa uses a high-pitched voice to imitate Zora complaining about having to wear her bathing suit. Sarah laughs. Melissa says that she told Zora to wear her suit with confidence because "the more less confident you are, the worse it looks on you." I don't have to come up with jokes. I just report what Melissa says and let it stand on its own.
Zora comes down the stairs to get in the car for her date. She's carrying a book! I so wish I knew what it was. I'm going to guess it's something from the New Age section of the bookstore, or as we used to call it when I worked there, "Kooks and Spooks," because it also had a lot of stories about hauntings and paranormal activity. In an interview, Zora says that Evan might have already made his decision, and she doesn't know how serious his dates with the other women were. She vows to have a great time with no expectations, but also no kissing.
