Episode Recap

As far as we can see, Auggie seems to be Sydney's murderer. He is seen burning clothes and having a flashback doing everything but killing Sydney.

Laura is knee deep in prostituting but it still doesn't seem to be enough to pay the med school bills, so she takes a call to come and be with one of her client's buddies. While she is with him, she runs into David and Ella who automatically start questioning her about her "new boyfriend."

Ella interrupts Riley and Jonah as they are trying to make love to try and get Jonah to install a surveillance camera in the complex to ease nerves about the murder. The only thing he unearths is footage of Riley trying to console Auggie over his grief for Sydney. Riley and Jonah decide that in order to make their marriage work, they've got to trust each other!

Auggie starts to have more flashbacks with Sydney - one where they met at an AA meeting on St. Patrick's Day, which started their sexual relationship and another to where he cried to Sydney over his past girlfriend dying as a result of a bar fight he started.

David is trying to sell some paintings he stole from his father in the last episode but it looks like that won't work, so he decides to steal a watch from a Hollywood party that his ex-girlfriend is throwing while her parents are away. Looks like it works...

Ella comes to the party as well to try and snag a new client to try and help the success of her publicity career. She finds a guy who she promises sexual favors to but only finds out that he is gay and was acting straight the whole time!

Violet is trying to get a job and Auggie tells her to try for the open hostess position at his restaurant, she is shot down for lack of style but after Ella gives her a makeover, she gets the job. Good looks are everything!

The episode ends with everyone hanging out at a pool party at the complex where Violet has a flashback to when she first met Sydney and decides that Sydney must be her mother since they both have red hair! Auggie denies this claim...I'll guess we will have to see!
