Episode Summary

EDIT
How Far You Can Go
AIRED:

Cody decides to take Justin to a firing range; while they are there, Justin tells Cody the story of Chris Hobbs and the incident surrounding Brian, himself and the assault. Cody shocks and surprises him by bringing him to the construction site where Chris Hobbs works so that Justin has the chance to confront him about what he did. Justin, however, feels unprepared, and backs down. Convinced that Justin has to confront Chris Hobbs for what he put him through, they go to his house, where Justin demands an apology. Seeing no reason to apologize and holding no remorse, Chris refuses, until Cody hands Justin a gun, which he uses to force Chris Hobbs to his knees to make him apologize; he does, yet Cody tells Justin that it is not enough and urges him to do more than simply make him apologize. Justin says that an apology is all he needed and, realizing Cody has gone too far, hands him the gun, and leaves.

Melanie, meanwhile ,is shocked and offended when her clients agree to let her partner, Larry Jacobs, try their case. They feel they have to keep their son's best interests in mind, and if they have a better chance of winning the custody case with Larry, they must select him as their attorney. Brian and Lindsay attempt to help Melanie understand the women's perspective, and try to console her. Melanie, however, feels overwhelmed with betrayal; it takes hearing words of wisdom from Ted to make her understand that she must learn to accept the things she cannot change, and eventually offers her support to Larry and to Jeannette and Anna.

Ted eventually makes the decision to accept Brian's offer of a job at Kinnetik. As part of his program, he makes his first task to write a letter of amends to Brian and the gang, and begins delivering letters to everyone but Emmet. He is at a loss for words, and does not think the letter would make any difference.

Emmett, however, goes for a change of pace and moves into a place of his own; a completely furnished apartment where he can have all the privacy and fun he wants. While Emmet adjusts to making this move, Debbie is going through adjustments of her own, with an empty house ever since Vic and Rodney made the decision to live together. In an effort to perk up her spirits, she decides to surprise them and takes them housewarming presents, only to discover a party going on that she received no invitation to.

Ben finally gives Michael a copy of his manuscript for him to read and critique. Michael finds it boring and becomes unsettled trying to find a way to break the news; he decides to take the easy way out, and simply tells him that he loved it. Ben however, thanks in part to Hunter, ends up finding out Michael's true opinion.
