Back at the Mercer home, Ted and Kristin have made the quickest escape known to man, and now the up-to-no-good teens are pouring in. Specifically, Char and Derek are dry humping on the kitchen counter while Justin looks through photo albums and "Sutton" prepares snacks. Laurel moves over to the couch so she and Justin can get their dry hump on, too. Emma snarks, "It's all fun until someone ends up in tears." While Justin puzzles over the page (Ted) ripped out of the album, Laurel returns to "Sutton" to gloat about her awesome boyfriend and wonder where Ethan is. Just then Mads and Thayer join the party. Emma signals for him to join her outside. As much as he doesn't like or get Ethan, Thayer recognizes that Emma's sourpuss is because of him. Emma noting his matching sourpuss wonders what happened with Sutton. Thayer assures it was nothing... a series of miscommunications and a terrible mistake -- at least that's what Sutton told him. He updates Emma that he told Sutton to find another place to live and also mentions that Sutton is kidding herself about Ethan because he is so obviously into Emma. While they've been talking, mind you, Thayer has covertly texted Ethan and told him to get his brooding ass over to the party. "Let someone be happy right?"
Over in Sedona, Ted and Kristin are having a grand time. That is, until one of Ted's former associates shows up, drink in hand, and crams him foot in his mouth by mentioning some "insane weekend in Santa Barbara" 20 years ago and calling Kristin "Annie." Ted insists he doesn't know what the blowhard is talking about, nor has he ever been to Santa Barbara... Uh huh.
Back in Phoenix, Ethan helps Emma clean up after the others. She wonders why he's so distant, and he says that's what she wanted. She insists she didn't and tells him that she was dealing with something big, but it's over. "Secrets were always Sutton's thing," he tells her. "I just thought you were different." She insists she's not like that and considers coming cleaning about a million times in countless tiny pauses before telling him she wants to be together now -- while they can. Ethan: "So you've told me everything?" Before she can consider confessing again, Char calls them in to play Never Have I Ever. Char makes a big announcement that she's drinking cranberry juice and soda because "alcohol makes me loud and stupid." Derek asks, "Isn't that the whole point of the game?" Well it will be for Emma! Getting drunk and keeping a Pandora's Box of secrets always make for such a good mix, right?
