Episode Summary

EDIT
Stand Up for Ourselves
AIRED:

Brian struggles to obtain a new list of clientele, but discovers he can win back one of the accounts his old firm has by re-inventing their ad campaign.

Justin struggles to deal with the gay-bashing of his friend, and decides to join the group of gay rebels, "The Pink Posse", in order to protect the citizens of Liberty Avenue from gay bashing.

Ted leaves rehab, but doesn't manage to leave Blake behind, when Blake willingly hands over his phone number, urging Ted to "call anytime". Blake comes over to help Ted throw out his "triggers"- things that might cause Ted to have painful memories or things that might tempt him to use again. Blake offers to crash at Ted's place for the night to make sure Ted will be okay, and he sleeps on the couch, leaving the lingering tension between them at a standstill.

Emmett and Michael join the "fairies", a strange sort of gay wilderness retreat. Emmett struggles at first, finding himself unable to "believe in the fairy magic" until he talks things over with an elderly fairy man- who he finds out later died two years ago. When he and Michael return, Emmett dances joyfully at Babylon, apparently on the road to mending his broken heart.
