At bankruptcy court, things aren’t working in Renata’s favor. It all starts when the judge implies that there’s nothing they can do to regain their finances. He then questions Renata about a $40,000 charge on her credit card, which she claims was a “medical procedure.”
When he further presses her, Renata blurts that she had work done on her face. The judge proceeds to confiscate all her belongings, including her watch, wedding ring and the car they drove in.
“There will come a day when you will pay for this, Gordon,” Renata says. “But today is not that day.”
At home, Amabella’s birthday party is in full swing. While Bonnie brought her mom, Elizabeth (Crystal Fox), and Jane brought her new beau, Corey (Douglas Smith), that doesn’t stop the Monterey Five from sneaking away from the crowd to speak in private.
Bonnie turns to Celeste and asks what Mary Louise knows about Trivia Night, since she’s been acting oddly suspicious. Celeste confirms that she’s onto them, saying, “Let’s face it, this f***ing lie has had quite a shelf life.”
Madeline is highly offended, considering she’s the one who came up with the lie in the first place. So, is everyone blaming her behind her back? While it’s highly unlikely, there’s no changing Madeline’s mind.
Later on, Elizabeth approaches Bonnie and reveals that she doesn’t like the energy at the party. “Something’s wrong,” she says.
Elsewhere, Madeline asks Ed to dance. He says no and then dives into a rant about how he’s sick of pretending like everything’s OK. When Nathan (James Tupper) sees what’s happening, he consoles Ed, saying, “I’ve been there, man.” Ed doesn’t take it well, shoving Nathan before starting a full-blown brawl.
Outside, Jane opens up to Corey and reveals that she wants to take things slow, since she was sexually abused by her previous partner. “That’s how I got Ziggy,” she says.
