Episode Summary

EDIT
After learning that the clinic may lose funding, Kelly asks Brandon to write a story to generate publicity. They try to collaborate on the article, but find that working together is too painful. Kelly organizes an auction to raise money for the clinic. She models her wedding gown in the fashion show portion of the event, and Brandon outbids everyone for a date with her. Brandon and Kelly take a walk on the beach and decide that they are through. The clinic must still cut back its staff (even after the fundraiser), so Kelly resigns. Although David believes that Valerie killed her father in self-defense and should move on, she insists on bringing her mother to town to discuss the situation. When Val tries to confess, she learns that Abby knew of the abuse prior to her husband's death. She did not take any action because she believed that Victor would seek help. Valerie finds a connection with Abby's fiancé, an ex-policeman. He killed an acquaintance in the line of duty, but has come to realize that he was not to blame. Noah offers his support to his father and enjoys an afternoon with him. When Mr. Hunter rejects his assistance, Noah snaps that his father has no one but himself to blame for his problems. Mr. Hunter commits suicide moments after the argument. Sophie cashes in her student loan and sneaks around with David. David's work as emcee at the auction gets him a try-out with a local radio station.moreless

  • Brandon even writes "through" Kelly. Their split makes no sense

    4.0
    It's hard to count how many times Brandon covered a story that Kelly suggested. Every time she randomly encountered an issue in her environment or in her life or on her mind, he was on it. She's basically a source and power behind his career. What would he write about without her, I almost feel inclined to wonder. How comfortable he is rejecting their relationship seems, in a way, unlikely. Brandon changed over the seasons, as we can see. He changed from a stable, righteous guy an interested girl would perceive as a "safe bet" into one with questionable (but unaware) intentions acting in a confused manner he himself doesn't get. I wonder where that could come from, character-wise, except as a cheap device to stir some action and inject trouble to the plot.moreless
