Paulina argues that her pie recipe could do that and thinks Chanel's first hire should be someone of color. Chanel declares that as the owner, she can hire whoever she wants and she wants Allie. Allie tells Paulina that she had a lot of the same reservations so if Chanel wants to hire someone else, she will step aside.

Steve and Kayla assure they don't think that. Steve apologizes for upsetting her. Bonnie says she's used to. Justin complains that tonight was supposed to be a fun evening of getting to know each other better. Justin remarks that he has gotten to know Steve better, because he didn't think he was capable of humiliating someone who was trying to be friendly and kind, but Steve proved him wrong tonight. Steve responds that he wasn't trying to humiliate anyone. Steve says that watching Bonnie trying to be like his deceased sister is painful for him. Justin says he can understand that because she was his wife, so he also feels pain. Justin adds that Bonnie wouldn't have to resort to that if she thought he would like her for just who she is.
