At home, Katie tells Brad that Spencer is sexually harassing him; Brad says it is different for men than from women. She asks what he would do if she was in the same situation and he says he'd kill the man! Katie says that he can't let Spencer get away with this; he says he'll talk to Kim.

Meanwhile at WOAK, Spencer is crying to Kim about how Brad was all over her and tried to take advantage of her! She says she thought Brad was a nice guy; Kim listens and tries to calm Spencer down. She tells Spencer to go home and she will talk to Brad. Spencer leaves and Kim calls Brad; he says he'll be right there. Brad arrives as Kim is talking to a worker about canceling the Chicago live shots. He says he can't work with Spencer; Kim says she knows all about what happened because Spencer told her! Brad asks what he did and Kim tells him what Spencer said. Brad is shocked and tells Kim what really happened. "I had to fend her off," Brad says! He swears that Spencer is the one who made all the moves and begs Kim to believe him. Kim sides with Spencer! She says that Brad is constantly bringing drama to WOAK and because Spencer is willing to go public, her hands are tied. She says Brad has to make changes if he expects to keep his job – beginning with staying far, far away from Spencer on the job and off!


Casey arrives home after voting in his first election. Margo is distant with him; Casey says he had to stand up for Alison. Margo agrees but says Casey went too far. She talks about work and tells Casey to get a job because he has to do something with his life. When he is alone, Casey plays video games! Alison arrives and teases him about the game. She says she owes him; both wish they could make Kevin pay. Alison says they can still support Luke but Casey doesn't know how. Alison convinces him to come along anyway.


At The Lakeview, Spencer unpacks her bag. Brad arrives! She tells him to go away but Brad won't leave. Spencer lets him in and he asks what is going on! Spencer says she told Kim the truth and Brad says she is crazy – because she came on to him! He orders her to tell Kim the truth! Spencer grabs his clothes and pushes and pulls on them; Brad tries to stop her and rips the sleeve of her blouse! Spencer threatens to call the cops. Brad leaves. "I will make this right," she says.


At the police station, Katie tells Margo about Spencer and Brad. She asks Margo to open a case on Spencer but Margo says there is no evidence that Spencer did anything criminal. Katie angrily says Spencer should pay for what she did to Brad – and she'll settle for Kim firing her! Katie is about to leave when Spencer calls and emotionally accuses Brad of attacking her! Margo puts the call on speaker and questions her; Spencer says she had to fight Brad off! Katie says Spencer is lying but Margo leaves to talk to Spencer in person.


In Old Town, Luke is stumping for votes, telling students that he is going to make sure that all students are given the same rights. A student comes by and says rights are one thing – but beer is another! He says Kevin is giving away beer for votes! Luke and Noah are shocked. He and his friends confront Kevin but he refuses to stop his victory party. Luke worries that he'll lose and one of his supporters suggests stuffing the ballot box! Noah and newly arrived Alison say they can't do this but Luke is intrigued. Casey and Noah keep talking and decide to go through with their idea. Noah can't believe it and tells Luke not to stoop to Kevin's level! He says Luke is better than this but Luke refuses to listen. "I tried to take the high road but Kevin lies and cheats and he's still going to win?" Luke says and angrily says he won't let Kevin make him feel inferior again! Noah is understanding but says Luke can't make this election and Kevin turn him into a different person. Luke says he has to win the election to show people like Kevin how wrong they are. "You can't stop people from being small-minded," Noah says. Luke says he has to show people he is proud of who he is. Noah angrily says cheating won't make him proud and storms off. The campaign worker returns and pulls Luke away.

Mark and Kevin are celebrating his victory – even though the polls are still open – when Luke and the campaign worker arrive at Yo's. Luke tells him to stuff the ballot box! A while later, Mark returns with news – that the election isn't going their way!


Outside, Alison says cheating is just going to get Casey into more trouble and in the end, it will make the election worthless. Casey says he isn't going to regret helping Luke win. Alison leaves to vote. Casey spots the campaign worker and decides to help him stuff the ballot box! Casey walks into Al's after Alison and reports that Luke just won the election! Luke knows why he won but they tell Alison they ran a clean campaign! Noah watches from outside but doesn't come in because he knows what Luke did!

Margo arrives at Spencer's and she tells her the same thing she told Kim. Then she says Brad attacked her and he deserves to be in jail!


Katie arrives at WOAK and tells Brad that Spencer reported his 'attack'; she asks if Spencer is telling the truth! Brad tells Katie that he went to see Spencer because Kim took Spencer's side; he says Spencer was all over him and he tried to push her away and her shirt ripped. Katie can't believe what he did. He says it was an accident; Katie says Spencer is going to spin this. Kim hears them arguing and asks what is going on! Katie walks away. Kim stops Brad from following her and says he has given her no choice. "You are fired!" she says. Katie catches up with Kim in her office; Kim says she fired Brad because of what he did. Katie is shocked, at Brad as much as Kim. Margo arrives, looking for Brad. Katie says he isn't there because Kim fired him. Margo says Spencer is pressing charges and asks Katie to come with her to look for Brad.

Brad goes to Metro, looking for Henry; he isn't there. Brad orders a drink. Spencer calls and begs him to meet with her because she knows she was wrong now. Brad doesn't believe her but when she keeps talking, he agrees to meet her as long as it is a public place. She asks him to come to The Lakeview.

Katie and Margo go to the apartment but Brad isn't there. Katie is very worried but Margo says they'll find him.


Brad arrives at The Lakeview but Spencer is nowhere to be found. He tries calling her but she doesn't answer. Brad goes upstairs and Spencer's door is open! He goes inside and finds her on the bed – dead!
