Dinner. Couples dance horribly out of time, both with the music and each other. It's hard when you don't know what music rights you're going to get. David sits this one out, and I don't blame him.
Elsewhere, "Barbara Hershey" tells Shelley that now that Grandpa's gone, she doesn't have to compete any more. Shelley assures her mother that he was different with her: "He was always there for me." "Barbara Hershey" weirdly looks at the floor to the point where I wonder if she remembers her next line. I tell you, maybe it's all the work, but when an actor of her caliber is this bad on a show, you know it sucks ass. Finally finding the next line somewhere in her shoe, she tells Shelley that she tried so hard to get him to see her past the mountain, but he never did: "I'm so glad he saw you." Otherwise she might have had to have a hundred granddaughters. Shelley takes about two months to smile at her mother. It's hard when you don't even recognize the woman that gave birth to you.
Max appears and asks David to dance. He refuses. She's a total bitch about how he must not be good at anything. She's a horrible actress too. He invites her to sit: "I can flirt with you better down here." No, seriously. I hate this show. Maria can't take her eyes off David, even though she's with the brother who's about fifty times better-looking. She opines they should have told David, but Will tells her not to sweat it: "It's us you should be worried about." Well that's...reassuring?
Sam runs into Shelley. He awkwardly but sincerely banters with her, and he's kind of cute, despite the ruffled shirt. He's the only character who doesn't seem either paper-thin, an asshole, or both. Shelley tells him that she's drinking water, and that's all she was drinking before, which is what I thought. She's a lot nicer to Sam when they're alone, which just makes me hate her more. Anyway, they're interrupted by Mike Dowling, who's not cute, but not offensive. He's just kind of nondescript, which is why I'm having trouble thinking of a comparison. Eh, I've wasted enough brainpower on this show already. Anyway, Shelley gets all doe-eyed and flirty again and you guys? She's a ho. Mike asks if he can get her a drink, and she bats her eyes and says yes. He asks what she's drinking. Sam, joining them: "She's drinking water." Hee. I like him. They'd better find him a better girl than this skank. But you've watched this network before, so you know they won't.
