Alex worries about attending her high school reunion due to her pending divorce. However, at the reunion, she sees fellow classmate, David, who cares little about her success and genuinely likes her. Meanwhile, Frankie, now married to Mitch, finds a condom inside one of Cat’s schoolbooks. Mitch, Frankie and Teddy are worried until they learn that the condoms were given out in Cat’s health class. Bea begins dating Judge Truman Ventner, who previously revoked her newly restored driver’s license. Alex spends a romantic weekend with David who teaches her to stop caring so much about what other people think. Bea lets Truman kiss her and finds she enjoys it. After a lull in the romance department, Georgie and John rekindle their sexual attraction. Frankie confronts Alex when she discovers that David died in Vietnam in 1972 and Alex has just spent a fantasy weekend with him. Alex knows, but is okay because David’s “ghost” taught her to value herself.
