At the strip club, Rachel is not having that much fun. "Get Ur Freak On" by Missy Elliott plays. Sophia dances with some strippers. Rachel isn't drinking. Everyone does shots and gets lap dances. I think Jisela was giving a lap dance to a stripper, but I don't think that's how it's supposed to work. Mike gives Rachel a hard time about not drinking, and tells her to live her life and not let her mother control her. Rachel doesn't want to have that conversation. In an interview, Rachel says that her mom is going to be upset with her, and she doesn't want to talk to her on the phone. Jisela seems to have gotten the memo about how the lap dances work.
Back at the apartment, Mike asks Rachel whether she realizes that her mom babies her, and whether she likes it. Rachel does realize it, but doesn't like it. In an interview, Mike says that Rachel needs to stand up for herself. Rachel explains that she's tried stopping it, but it's just how it is, because she's an only child. Mike says, "I'm an only child, too. I know exactly what you're going through." Remember how annoying it was when you were a teenager, and people not much older than you would try to tell you what to do, because they had been there? I thought it was annoying, anyway. Even though they were usually right. Rachel says she's not that independent from her mom. Mike asks whether she wants to be, and Rachel doesn't answer. In an interview, Rachel says that she needs to start doing things for herself and not worrying about what her mother will think.
Jisela teaches Malik how to dance. No, that's not a euphemism. Yet. In an interview, Malik says that he likes people with a lot of energy, and who know how to have fun, and that's Jisela, apparently. Also, he's attracted to her passion for dance.
Everyone's at a bar, and everyone is freaking each other. It's scaring me. Rachel got drunk and danced with guys and girls. I know I'm a prude, but that just doesn't seem like fun. With the grinding and the rubbing. I'm fifty years old. On the subway home, Rachel decides to try to do a pole dance like a stripper. Everyone chants her name, and she takes a running leap at the pole, but forgets the all-important step of hooking her leg around the pole and just goes flying out the other side and falls on the floor. Everyone laughs. She's wild! She dances on the subway!
Malik and Jisela walk home in the rain, giggling. In an interview, Malik says that they've learned a lot about each other's past, present, and future. Are they psychic? Malik and Jisela get into bed together. Jisela turns off the light. In an interview, Jisela says, "Malik is feeling me, the way I feel him." Hmm, that was an interesting clip to put into this sequence. Because there's definitely a lot of feeling going on under that blanket, but I don't think that was what Jisela was talking about. Jisela voice-overs that they are good friends with a physical attraction for one another. We switch to security-cam, and those blankets are doing an awful lot of moving around.
