Episode Summary

EDIT
The Snake in Paradise
AIRED:

Brian and Justin are wrapped up in the heat of their passion when Brian has a flashback of his surgery. Needless to say, it changes the mood and Brian's passion is easily cooled. Brian finds his frustration and confusion growing after the incident, especially when his mother, Joan, pays him a visit after Debbie tells her about his illness. Her visit with Brian escalates into a heated argument, but his fury somehow gets Brian back into the groove he was looking to find.

Michael and Ben plan an evening with Hunter at the mall, but when a former student of Ben's by the name of Anthony, who is also an aspiring writer and admirer of Ben's work, invites him to attend a lecture by a respected author, Ben cancels the plans with his family. Anthony attempts to get intimate with Ben, but Ben lets him know he has the wrong idea. Anthony explains he's always admired Ben and wanted to be like him. That's why he wants Ben to give him "the gift" - to make him HIV positive.

At Kinnetik, Brian and Ted hear that Brown Athletics is committing a large sum of money for a sports figure to model their new underwear line. Ted commits to finding them one and begins his research immediately. When Emmett finds Ted flipping through a sports magazine at the diner, he nonchalantly suggests that Ted pitch the idea to football pro Drew Boyd, an idea that gets Ted easily excited, however he finds disappointment in the fact that the athlete is "straight". Behind closed doors, Emmett talks to Drew and ultimately convinces him to be the new Brown Athletics underwear model.

Conflicted over her feelings for Sam Auerbach, Lindsay tries to resolve her feelings by ignoring him, in spite of the fact that he's still in her thoughts as she and Melanie make love. In another effort to avoid him, she decides not to attend the opening of the show. Melanie tries to convince her to go but she relents, finally arriving at the gallery as the last guests are leaving. She's surprised to find Sam still there. Alone in the gallery, he pulls her close and passionately kisses her.
