In Society, Lola greets Theo and they sit down together as Summer and Phyllis watch. Summer says this is why she thinks it’s okay to tell Kyle how she feels. At their table, Lola contemplates confronting Summer and Theo talks her out of it. Across the room, Summer tells Phyllis she told Theo about the kiss. Phyllis is dismayed but doubts he told Lola. She advises her daughter to find someplace else to hang out. At the bar, Lindsay admires Mariah’s editing on Tessa’s music video and guarantees she won’t be out of work long. Mariah glances from Summer to Lola – she’s waiting for war to break out. Phyllis leaves and Mariah stops Summer from approaching Lola’s table. Kyle enters, takes in the scene and takes Lola to the kitchen to talk. Mariah tells Summer and Theo they should leave. They do. In the kitchen, Kyle says he wasn’t surprised to find her with Theo. Lola doesn’t think it’s the same as him and Summer, but needs to hear it from him. He doesn’t know. Kyle insists he’s fighting for their marriage, but she needs an explanation for ‘Summer being in his head’. They both get tearful as she urges him to be truthful. Kyle admits Summer asked him questions in San Francisco he didn’t know how to answer. Summer isn’t just in his head…she’s in his heart too. He thought he was over her, but doesn’t believe that anymore. Lola turns away.
