Night. Luke's weapon of mass destruction -- I mean "car" -- screeches up to The Lighthouse, where the party is in full swing. He drinks beer and stares inside. That can't be going anyplace good. Especially if you saw the preview.
Inside, Marissa gingerly places a small square of cheese on her plate. Dinner! Sandy prowls the party in the background. As Seth walks up; Ryan innocently asks what's going on, and Seth's all, "Huh? What? What? What?" When Ryan repeats the question, Seth spazzes, "Nothing! Not one thing! Okay?" Across the room, Summer makes a series of hand motions at Seth; it's not the Macarena, but it could be. He returns the message with a mock hand jive. Ryan catches the tail end of this display, and Seth pretends to be motioning to him: "I'm gonna go pee. So if anyone asks, that's where I am...for a while." Hee. As Seth scurries off, Marissa says, "He's getting weirder." Ryan didn't think that was possible.
Marissa and Ryan leave the buffet and cross paths with Lady Heather, who is wearing a white dress with silver sequins on it. It looks like one of my dance costumes from when I was little. And I'd know, since my parents still have the very embarrassing pictures to prove it. Displayed all over the house. Lady Heather coldly greets Marissa, receiving a curt "Mom" in return. Lady Heather complains to Caleb that it was the warmest conversation they've had in weeks, and he offers his help, announcing that he's been "known to be quite persuasive."
Kirsten and Hailey watch the gruesome twosome from the bar, and Kirsten asks why Caleb is "all warm and mushy" these days. Except she pronounces "mushy" as "moooooshy." (She pronounces "warm" as "warm.") In the second joke of the episode that falls painfully flat, Hailey suggests that it's his new blood-thinning medication. Kirsten awkwardly segues to asking about Hailey's romantic life, and Hailey grinningly looks across the room at Jimmy as she responds, "Not much." She enthuses over how excited Jimmy is -- he's like a totally different person! The camera shows Jimmy chortling obliviously, as yet unaware that he didn't get off free and clear from the thievery after all. (In fact, by the end of this episode, he'll have significantly profited from it. Go ahead, folks! Steal from your friends and community!). But really. Is Hailey trying to throw their hidden relationship in Kirsten's face? Kirsten's expression freezes in unhappy comprehension.
