SYNOPSIS


While enrolled in a self-defence class with Kit, the gang discusses plans to attend the opening of SheBar, a rival new lesbian club competing with The Planet, which is still temporarily closed. Bette hears for the first time that Tina is dating Brenda, an attractive heart surgeon.

Alice receives a menacing visit from a pair of condescending military investigators who bully their way into her apartment, searching for signs of her relationship with Tasha. Alice is left shaken and enraged, inspiring Tasha to confront her lackluster legal defender Beech, whose reluctance to get more involved than necessary begins to diminish.

Bette handles a complaint from a student who claims to have been traumatized by a work of violent performance art in Jodi's classroom, but Jodi dismisses the charge as overwrought. Meanwhile, she and Bette's romantic relationship is still strained in the wake of their truncated weekend getaway to the lake.

Disappointed to be turned down for the lead in "Lez Girls" by an A-list actress, Jenny nevertheless resists the studio's pressure to cast a talented unknown, upcoming "Bond girl" Nikki Stevens – but she reconsiders when Nikki seeks out Jenny at SheBar and reveals a little-known personal secret.

While a self-protection-minded Kit shops for a gun, Alice and Tasha attend a top-secret party thrown by Hollywood power player Barry Burd, whose hush-hush gatherings are safe havens for those in the closet to let their hair down.

After days without sexual gratification, Shane begins to show signs of mental, physical and emotional distress – but an encounter with the debutante party-girl owners of SheBar may provide the relief she needs.

Meanwhile, in a secluded side-room at SheBar, former couple Bette and Tina share an illicit kiss…
