Episode Summary

EDIT
Death in the Family
AIRED:

Michael and Justin receive a letter from a famous action film director by the name of Brett Keller, who is interested in turning "Rage" into a live-action feature film! Michael and Hunter are thrilled, but Ben is less than enthusiastic, stating that he's not interested in Brett Keller's "world of mindless entertainment". Justin and Michael, however, decide they'll consider Keller's offer, but Justin has second thoughts when Ben tells him that once Keller owns the rights to "Rage", he could do whatever he pleases,including making Rage a straight character.

When Brian and Justin each think that a new guy they spot in Babylon is checking them out, they make a bet to see which one he's interested in. If Justin wins, Brian will take him on a trip to Ibiza. And if Brian wins, Justin will go back to school. Within a few days, Brian is winning the bet but receives shocking news when the guy, a doctor, tells Brian he has a lump on his testicle.

Lindsay discovers that artist Sam Auerbach is in town mounting a large-scale mural in Penn Plaza. Although the chances are unlikely, she decides to try to get him to do a show of his work at the gallery in conjunction with the mural's unveiling. When she goes Penn Plaza to talk to him directly, she's surprised to find he's very rude, perverted, and crass, causing her much anger and disappointment. Melanie suggests that if she wants something from him she'll have to play his game.

Ted attempts to give Emmett his letter of amends but Emmett won't accept it. Hurt, Ted tells Blake about Emmett's refusal of the letter. Blake reassures Ted he did all he could by offering Emmett his truth. Ted becomes discouraged and throws Emmett's letter in the trash. Blake retrieves the letter and is able to convince Emmett to accept it.

Debbie, still stewing over not getting an invitation to Vic's party, ignores him at the diner. Michael suggests that she should lighten up on him, so she goes to his place to apologize. Vic apologizes too, but the apology soon turns into a heated debate and Vic asks her to leave. She does and insists she's never coming back. It later becomes an argument she'll live to regret.
