More dancing. Brian asks why Justin and Michael aren't thanking him. Michael leaves to get a drink. Brian asks what Michael's problem is. Justin says that he and Michael aren't speaking to each other right now. He says they each think the other is a complete asshole. Brian says that he just spent a fucking fortune on this party, so they need to sort it out. "After what he told you?" Justin asks. Like Michael caused all of this. You put Ethan's dick in your mouth, honey. Michael was only gloating. You should have seen that coming from Season One, Episode One. Brian says that Michael was just looking out for him. Like Zephyr looks after Rage. He tells Justin that if he wants his comic book to be a success, he needs to put his personal feelings aside. "And don't PISS on your achievement." Never a second of subtlety on this show.
Dancing. Em goes to the bar and finds Ted. Ted tries to get away, but Em pulls him back and the clichéd conversation ensues. Em says that Ted's embarrassed, but that there's no reason to be. Ted says he made a fool of himself. Em says that Ted's not a fool. It takes courage to say what's in your heart: "More courage than saving the world from archvillains." Well, not really, but whatever. Ted labels himself "Pathetic Man," and then pouts. Em says the following: "You're not pathetic. You're funny and witty. You're brilliant. It's true! That's what makes you sexy, because you're so, so smart. You know what they say. The brain is the second sexiest organ. Which is not to say that the rest of you is not hot. Hi! Look at those pecs!" I don't fucking believe this. Emmett proceeds to talk himself into liking Ted by lying about Ted's assets. They make out. I'm kinda grossed out. Why does this have to happen? I hate this! I hate it so much! Emmett looks like he's under some kind of hypnotic control. Maybe Ted's an evil archvillain and Em's under some kind of queer superpower that forces him to fuck pathetic losers! Help! Rage! Help your gay friend in distress!
Dancing. Dancing. Nobody has a son. Justin finds Mel and Lindsay -- the meddling lesbians who make poor decision after poor decision -- who tell Justin that Brian's looking for him: "It's your big night, sweetie. He wants to be with you." Okay, sure. Justin gets a moment of happiness and hope and goes looking for Brian.
Michael tells Ben that Tibet's going to seem pretty quiet after this killer party with the dancing and drugs. Should Ben be doing drugs? Oh, it totally doesn't matter. Michael says he won't come to Babylon without Ben. He'll sit at home and knit. Ben tells Michael that he's not going to Tibet. So much for dreams. Now there's the cliffhanger. Michael no longer has Ben's abandonment for his excuse when he goes and fucks Brian next weekend. Whoops! Michael almost opened his mouth during that kiss.
