After Brenda finally wins the lead role in the play, the unbalanced Laura attempts to sabotage Brenda's acting career by spreading a rumour that Brenda granted sexual favours to Randolph to win the lead. Meanwhile, Kevin impresses Dylan and Erica when they visit his lab. He tells Dylan about his clean-up plans for Santa Monica bay which he says are under-funded. Dylan asks Kevin if he could act as his beneficiary to open up his own chemical clean-up company. Kevin announces his engagement to Suzanne.
Kelly continues to resent Suzanne and Kevin's presence which drives a further rift between her and Dylan after she tells him that her woman's intuition tells her that something is not right about Kevin and Suzanne. Jesse suggests more bed-rest for Andrea who continues to feel unwell over her pregnancy. Also, Brandon speaks with Clare's skeptical father over her wild behavior and her advances towards him while she's making future plans to travel with him.
