  • Jen asks her to have dinner with her and Olivier.

  • Annie asks about Naomi.
  • He says he hasn’t told her.
  • Annie says he should. She’s her girlfriend.

  • She is venting to Navid.
  • The more she writes, the worse terribler it gets.
  • Q13: Terribler. Listen to me! I totally can’t even talk!–Ade
  • Navid takes a look. He says she needs to get out of her head.
  • Q14: And how do I do that? By banging it up against the wall, because I’ve already tried that.–Ade
  • Navid says he’ll figure something out.
  • Silver and Teddy are walking through his house.

  • Spence says he’s met a ton of journalists and never liked them.

  • Everyone says how much they liked it…but Silver admits she didn’t.
  • And she kind of goes on a rant.
  • Everyone is shocked on silent.
  • But Spence says he agrees with her and they have a laugh.
  • Teddy hugs and kisses her.
  • Whew.
  • Q19: Get me off this ride before I get all Mr. Ryan Matthews on that trashcan.–Ade

  • Nice of Navid to help her but it was stupid of her to think she can write a song.
  • He says they should have more fun… because…
  • Q20: I know you can do this. I believe in you. I see you all depressed and downed like this, and it hurts. It’s like the worst feeling in the world. Seeing you happy, that means everything to me.–Navid
  • Ade has clearly melted and is totes about to say how she feels about him when his phone rings.
  • Of course it’s Lila.
  • He says he’s at the Pier but doesn’t say who with. He’ll meet her at the beach club.

  • She is thrilled.
  • They hear a car. Dixon’s parents are home!
  • Dixon leaves Ivy in his room.
  • He calls out to his parents.
  • Harry yells up that Debbie forgot her wallet.
  • In the kitchen, Harry actually says to Debbie that he couldn’t say that she really lost the directions to their counseling session.

  • Harry says they have to go to their session.
  • Q29: This is us trying.–Harry
  • Debbie says they’ll talk more later and they leave.
  • That was pretty heartbreaking. And really well-done, I think. I’m impressed.
  • Annie says she feels like she’s going to throw up.

  • He says he’s really sorry.
  • Liam walks into Annie’s garage. He’s surprised to her.
  • She wipes the tears away.

  • I feel like crying. She’s so sad but trying to smile.
  • He gives her a paintbrush.
  • It’s really sweet.
  • Joey kinda sorta helped Pacey with his boat on Dawson’s Creek. ❤
  • Dixon is still with Ivy.
  • He’s says it’s ironic. All these years he’s been trying to learn that families can be stable.
  • Just because his family was always falling apart when he was little, doesn’t mean this one will.
  • Q33: And just when I finally relax, it falls apart.–Dixon
  • He apologizes for rambling like for an hour.
  • She says he has nothing to apologized.
  • She’s flattered he felt he could talk to her.
  • Q34: “This has got to be our worst date yet.” “I don’t think so. Dates are supposed to be getting to know each other. And I’m getting to know you. And I’m liking what I’m knowing.”–Dixon and Ivy
  • They kiss and keep snuggling. It’s nice.
  • Teddy goes to see his dad.
  • Spence says Silver is charming. But it’s really not genuine.
  • Q35: You know you’re my favorite, don’t you? I’m not supposed to say that but it’s true.–Spence
  • He says Teddy can take his tennis career further if he practices more.
  • Teddy says he already practices a lot.
  • But admits he does want to beat (or be?) Federer.
  • Q36: Then it’s settled. No more girlfriends. No more distractions. Break up with her, Teddy.–Spence
  • Spence walks away, leaving Teddy shocked.
  • Next day. It’s school.
  • Silver asks Teddy to a movie before his match tonight.
  • He gives a sarcastic reply. His point being that he has to “mentally prepare” and “focus.”
  • She tries to apologize but he says he has to get to class.
  • Jen wakes Naomi in her house.
  • Jen is thanking Naomi for making her $16 million richer.
  • Oh my god! I get it! It was a set-up! Man, I’m slow.
  • Jen says that thanks to Naomi’s performance, Olivier went running into another girl’s arm. Just like he’s done every time they fight.
  • But when they got back together, they added an infidelity clause to their pre-nup.
  • And her PI got shots of Olivier with a girl last night. Thus her getting tons of money from him.
  • Naomi calls her disturbed.
  • Q37: Now, now, don’t get nasty. You really should be nicer to me now that I’m in control of your finances.–Jen
  • She told their dad how Naomi is blowing through her trust fund.
  • And now Jen is in control of it.
  • Q38: This is a nightmare.–Naomi
  • Teddy’s match is over. He won. Spence is loving the trophy.
  • Q39: Wimbledon, here we come.–Spence
  • He goes inside their house just as Silver pulls up.
  • Teddy says he was just going to go see her.
  • He was stressed and shouldn’t have taken it out on her.
  • She asks how his match went.
  • He said he won. And thought he’d feel good but doesn’t.
  • Without her there watching, it just didn’t mean anything to him.
  • Q40: “Because. Because–” “Because we’re falling in love?” “Because I am in love.”–Teddy and Silver
  • I kind of loved that…but I don’t love the couple they were last week and I wasn’t crazy about tonight. Obviously until this scene. Sigh.
  • Ade and Javier are recording their duet. I kind of like it!
  • Sample lyrics: “Does he still love me?” “Do I still love her?” “Can we give it one more try and be together like the first time.” “Please love me like the first time.”
  • Ade totally wrote this about her and Navid. He did inspire her!
  • I am a sucker for duets. And High School Musical-esque songs, which it totally is.
  • The producer says Ade killed it.
  • Javier tells Ade it’s a great song. He’s shocked she wrote it in two days.
  • Navid walks in with flowers. They don’t see. But their mics are still on.
  • He asks if she wrote it for her boyfriend.
  • She says no. She doesn’t have one.
  • He’s shocked. A beautiful girl must have someone.
  • She again says no. There’s no special person in her life.
  • Navid is crestfallen.
  • Preview: Voicover says “Navid lost the girl of his dreams. Now she’s dating Javier. Better looking than a Jonas. (Something) better than an American Idol” as Navid looks sad and Ade and Javier look happy and kiss. Naomi says “Stop kissing or I’m going to have to send it to Perez.”

Those are my thoughts. What are yours?
