Episode Summary

Episode 16
In 1993 Gregory's in bed with Athena when he wakes up in a sweat - he's been dreaming about having sex with Peter. Athena, already awake and nervous about her upcoming performance, turns to him for comfort and pleasure, but Greg rejects her. Again. The next day, when Peter comes to the studio for looping, Beth sees him with Gregory and overhears the two men confessing their mutual attraction. She tries to talk to Gregory about it, but he slips away gratefully the minute Josh appears, leaving the two former lovers together in awkward silence. But then Josh admits that his marriage to Valerie has gotten off track, and Beth reaches out to him - which is unfortunate, because at that moment Valerie storms in and sees them together. She immediately pitches a screaming fit, and Josh gives as good as he gets -- ultimately demanding a divorce. But Valerie only laughs, and suggests that he consult his attorney. In 2001, Joe and Amanda's big party is a big nightmare for Beth - who's thrown out of her own kitchen, discovers a couple screwing on her son's bed, is patronized to by Amanda, and finds herself virtually ignored by her husband. So when Spencer calls, begging for help at the school meeting, she braves Joe's anger to slip out and meet him - only to arrive too late. Luckily, Spencer has already managed to convince the board to keep the feeding program, but he's still thrilled that Beth made the effort to help both the school, and him. Pleased that someone needs her, Beth hurries back to the party to apologize to Joe. At the door she lets in Tammy and tells her that the whole group of friends has been anxious to meet her - not realizing that she just made the party a nightmare for Josh as well. Tammy immediately confronts her lover, ruining Josh's chances with the blonde he's been working, while Beth discovers that Joe not only didn't realize she was gone, but he blames her for the chef quitting. In 2008, Gregory meets up with his old boyfriend Scott, who's interested - provided Greg has managed to put a little distance between himself and Athena. Unfortunately, Athena shows up at Greg's that evening bravely prepared to tell him that she's pregnant with his baby. Only the sight of the two men together breaks her resolve.moreless
