together. Starr and Cole are there. He asks her if she is ok and tells her if

Todd realized he is at the old frat house, in the room where he used to sleep, Powell reminds him that the house has been boarded up for years and is ready to be torn down, but he made a lot of effort to recreate the whole thing. Todd asks Powell why he wants to relive the night that they gang-raped Marty. Powell reminds Todd that this room is where it all started. He reminds Todd that they found Marty, sick, passed out and helpless on this bed. Then they raped her. He then asks Todd just who is trapped and helpless now. Todd then turns to notice that he is tied to the bed and is unable to move. He asks Todd how it feels to be at the mercy of someone who does not give a damn about your suffering or how scared you are. Todd tells Powell that he is sick. Powell asks him if he believes that. He asks what Todd’s excuse was for pinning Marty to the bed and forcing himself on her. He relives how three men hurt a woman who was their unwilling prey.

At the gravesite, Marcie tells Bo that she really appreciates the help that he is offering. She wants to be there. Michael tells her that she really does not have to be there. She tells him that she was supposed to be Hope’s mother, and would like to be there for her. She tells him that maybe Starr should not be there, but she wants to be there for the both of them. Bo and Michael then agree to let her be there when they exhume baby Hope.
At the prom, Langston and Markko are disenchanted when Lola appears and looks like she’s under the influence of something. Cole asks her to get out of there. She remembers that Asher gave her a drug to take. They ask where he is. They tell her if she’s high, they might be concerned.

While Ray and Dorian are together in his room, he plays the guitar. She asks him how she could not see that her daughter is ready to lose her virginity on prom night when she’s only 17. Ray reminds Dorian that his daughter is also 17 and he’s had no opportunity to raise her or know what she is doing. He also informs Dorian that his mother got married at 15 and had two children by 18. She admits that she might not be as worried nor losing sleep if it were her son. He acknowledges that it is different with girls. She asks why that is. He replies because girls are delicate. She asks him if she seems delicate to him. He tells her she does, and that she is beautiful and desirable.
In the padded room, John realizes that his father’s friend, Pete, who is encouraging him, is not actually there. He’s just in John’s head. He knows that to get out of the room, he must make the “doctor” believe that he is sedated; then he has a chance.

surprise for Langston. She turns around to face him.
At the prom, Starr and Cole realize that Langston and Markko should be at the Palace by now. She tells him she hopes that everything turns out for them.

John gets attention from the guards. When they are off guard, he knocks them out.
At the frat house, Powell reminds Todd that he did not want to hurt Marty. Todd and Zach pushed him into it. They said that he was not a man and that he was too weak. Todd tells Powell that he is still not a man. He’s a weak coward, no different than he was that night. Powell then demands that Todd shuts up and reminds him that he has the knife.

He needs to help Marty, and he is stuck in the straightjacket. He preps John to do what he knows how to do in order to get out of a sticky situation.

him, having his kids and everything. Todd tells Powell he knows nothing about
him. Powell tells Todd he knows all about his twisted relationships with women
such as Ms. Delgado. He knows all about how Todd messed with Téa. Todd asks
Powell what he expects of him. Powell then tells Todd that he could tell Téa he
is sorry and puts the knife up to Todd’s throat.
Langston undresses, and Markko tells her he’s never seen anything so beautiful. They kiss.
Starr and Cole dance. She tells him she is ok. He tells her he knows that she is not. She tells him that she is thinking about Hope 16 years from now having some boy taking her to her prom. Cole tells her he knows he’d want to kill the boy who might want to sleep with his daughter. Starr tells him that she would tell him that she couldn’t be their little girl forever. They both know that it would not make it any easier; Marcie and Michael were going to be her parents. They are ready to leave and they both realize that they are still not ok with knowing that Hope is being exhumed.
While John is in the room, he hears Pete coaching him on how to get out of the straight jacket.
At the frat house, Powell reminds Todd that he raped Marty and bullied Powell and Zach into helping him rape her. Then he hurts her again just recently. Todd has this deluded idea that he loves her. Todd does not know what love is. Todd asks Powell if he knows what love is. Powell replies that he is going to give Marty a chance to do what she’s always wanted to do. Todd asks Powell if he is not going to let Marty decide what she wants to do next. Powell then unties Marty and tells her she may kill Todd right now.
Lola tells her father and Dorian that nobody knows what they are talking about; nothing is wrong with her. Dorian then tells her that she will call Langston at the hotel, but Lola reminds her that she may not want to do that, because right now Langston is going to have sex with Markko. She reminds them that Markko did not want her; he wanted Langston, so she “fixed” both of them. Dorian demands to know what she did. Lola then remembers puncturing the hole in the condoms but she does not answer.
Langston tells Markko that she is a Cramer woman, as Dorian has reminded her, and a Cramer woman is always prepared. She hands him a condom. They suspect nothing.

had better think fast because the clowns he knocked out won’t be out forever.

He faces them and tells them that they must know that they cannot allow Todd to victimize them again; they must take their power back. He asks which one of them is going to be first. Téa then speaks up and answers that she will.
