Episode Summary

EDIT
Escalating Violence
AIRED:

Brian achieves success, as the headquarters for Kinnetik are finally set up and ready to go. However, Brian runs into a dilemma when he receives news that the funds for a client's ad in Heat Magazine have yet to obtained; Brian worries about getting the payment in by the deadline and enlists the last minute help of Ted, who solves this problem with ease and total efficiency. Thinking he could use this kind of help at the agency, Brian offers Ted a position; Ted, just beginning his new life, feels he is not ready and declines.

Also,in an effort to "beef up" the Pink Posse and get the Posse prepared to take on "trouble before it starts", Cody persuades Justin and the rest of the Pink Posse to train in a boxing ring. Justin, however, has his doubts as does the rest of the Posse, who walk out in an effort to keep themselves out of trouble and from getting themselves hurt; Cody decides to take Justin to hear a preacher speak about the sins of homosexuality at a nearby church, to help subside his doubts about the Pink Posse's supposed motivation. They later leave Liberty Avenue in search of gay-bashers and homophobes in the straight neighborhoods, and, in an effort to stir up the trouble he is looking for, Cody kisses Justin outside a straight dance club, leading to harsh words and a fight where Cody ends up putting a gun to a man's head to make him apologize for calling them "faggots".

Meanwhile, Melanie feels confident that she will win her current case and get Jeanette and Anna custody of their son. Melanie believes she can overturn the previous verdict, especially since the judge who's hearing the case has a reputation of being gay friendly. This judge however, is replaced with a more conservative one, and another attorney, because of this, offers to take over the case, stating he is more equipped to handle it. Melanie is furious at the suggestion that a straight male replace her, and has no intention of surrendering the case.
