Episode Summary

EDIT
A Change of Heart
AIRED:

Ryder asks Brian to stay home until the harassment suit with Kip is resolved, leaving Brian feeling like he's considered guilty until proven innocent. At "See the Light" Emmett meets Heather, a similarly struggling lesbian. Melanie agrees to defend Brian in the harassment suit. David doesn't want Michael to get involved in Brian's problems. Ted and Melanie are stunned when they run into Emmett and Heather, who are on a date. Michael lies to David that he needs to stay with a sick Debbie in order to get out of dinner so he can go to Brian's and cheer him up, not realizing that David will check up on her to make sure she's alright. David then finds Michael and Brian at Woody's, where they are drunk and playing guitars as they relive high school memories. Justin seduces Kip, and then them tells him he's 17 and that his father will come after him with the police unless he does something for Justin. David and Michael argue about the lying and Brian's importance in Michael's life. Brian tells David that he'll lose Michael if he forbids him to see Brian, and David realizes he's right. Desperate for a success story to share with their group, Emmett and Heather have sex, though it's awkward and miserable and made possible only because they were both imaging their ideal same-sex fantasy partners. Melanie and Brian learn the harassment suit has been dropped but are given no explanation. Ted and Michael confront Emmett again, this time at the "See the Light" meeting. Ted's impassioned plea that God loves them just the way they are hit home with both Heather and Emmett. They show up at Babylon later, done with the group for good. Justin doesn't tell Brian he blackmailed Kip into dropping the suit.
