On the decks of The Haunted Star, Portia talks with Trina about how she’s feeling. Trina feels guilty because for a moment tonight she wasn’t thinking about dad and stressing about something else. Portia thinks the something else is Cam. Elsewhere, Cam moves in and kisses Joss, which is seen by Dev. Dev interrupts after and suggests someone check on Trina. Joss runs off, and Dev asks Cam if he had found Trina first if he would have kissed her instead. Cam says he didn’t plan on this. Cam admits he cares about Trina and Joss and doesn’t want to hurt them, so Dev pushes him to tell the girls that he only wants to be friends. Cam knows they won’t buy that because the let’s just be friends line is the ultimate blowoff. Dev recalls Joss using the line on him. Cam realizes he needs to take a step back and figure what he’s feeling before talking to the girls. Elsewhere, Joss finds Trina with her mom, and Trina tells Joss they should go inside. Joss takes Trina to one of the staterooms so she can figure out what she wants to do. Trina suggests they find Cam and Dev and force them onto the dancefloor. Back on the deck, Liz and Portia chat, and Portia believes Trina isn’t just worried about her dad, but some teenage angst. Liz also believes their kids are angsting over one another. Meanwhile, Joss and Trina find Dev and Cam on the deck, and Trina wonders what they were talking about. Cam claims nothing much.
