Georgie moves away from her husband and children and tells Dr. Caspian that she’s ready to continue their relationship. Caspian tells her that their sexual encounters were part of her therapy, not love. He insists on no longer treating her. Georgie becomes obsessive and stalks Dr. Caspian. Alex insists that Georgie live with her for a while. After a drug-addicted patient of Charley’s transmits AIDS to her baby, then overdoses and dies, Charley takes a position with more upscale clientele. At the TV station, Alex asks Norma if she can do a week of AIDS-related theme shows on “Alex Live.” Norma likes the idea, but the station owners want to deal with less controversial topics. Alex mentions the topic of AIDS during a cooking segment and is discharged when she won’t apologize to viewers. Cat wins a week-long trip for two to a health spa. Her mother, Teddy, goes with her and expects to be pampered. Instead, she must undergo a difficult and tiring regimen to become physically fit. She rebels, getting Cat and herself banned from the spa.
