Captain Who was under high security, but that didn’t make Zig feel any less threatened by Damon’s crew. Winston couldn’t cut it when it came to kissing Zoe, even if it was just acting, and Becky learned Jonah had some pretty good acting skills of his own.

The Show Must Go On
Winston struggled to get through rehearsals with Zoe playing his love interest. Turns out his kiss with Lola turned him off of kissing anyone BUT Frankie. Too bad Frankie quit the musical and refused to speak to him ever again.
When Winston couldn’t figure out Frankie’s reasoning for being as upset as she was, Zoe had to step in to point out the obvious… Frankie had been going through a hard time watching her parents go through a divorce, and was concerned that Winston would end up letting her down again and again, just like her Dad had.
Winston called Frankie (from a payphone, because no cellphones, right.) and left her a message explaining that without her, the musical meant nothing. He apologized and begged for Frankie to perform in the show, but before he could finish, his time ran out.
When it came time for the final kiss, Winston gave Frankie the option of cutting it from the scene altogether. Frankie chose to ignore the offer, and planted a big wet one on his sweet little face. After the show was over, Frankie and Winston reconciled their differences, and of course, kissed some more.
Do the Right Thing
Vince was keeping a close eye on Zig and Tiny. He was protecting them, but more importantly, he was protecting himself and taking aggressive measures to do so.
The fear of someone coming after Maya was getting to Zig. He decided it was time to let Damon’s crew know he was ready to fight back. Maya caught Zig stepping up to the crew that had been threatening them, and she wasn’t happy with what she saw.
Damon had sent a video message from the hospital asking for a truce. He reminded Zig of the days when they’d been friends, and convinced him to get out while he still can. The message inspired Zig to handle the situation in a completely different way. He went to Detective Taylor, and told him everything. Vince came to wish Zig good luck right before his big debut, and that’s when the police showed up to arrest Vince. Vince seemed pretty confident it was Zig that told the police the truth.When Tiny found out his brother had been arrested, he threatened both Zig and Maya with a knife.
Zig tried to talk him down, but Tiny was too upset.
He was eventually able to make Tiny see that hurting him wouldn’t stop the struggle, it would only make it worse. Zig and Tiny promised to look out for each other. They called their support contact, and he agreed to let them stay with him until they could get back on their feet, but Zig had one more stop to make before heading home. Damon may have been the one to call the truce, but he wasn’t the only one that wanted peace. Zig stopped by to visit his old friend at the hospital, and they finally both agreed on something—cheeseburgers with no onions!
The Truth Hurts
Becky and Drew were back at the hospital volunteering when Damon asked Becky if she’d figured out who it was that stole her money. Drew was upset to learn that someone had stolen from her, and Becky admitted to thinking it might have been Jonah.
There was only one thing left to do, and she confronted Jonah in person.
When Jonah didn’t deny it, Becky demanded an explanation. Jonah confessed to having a history with drugs, and insisted that it was in the past. Becky was still unsure of her feelings. When Drew offered advice, she admitted to still caring about Jonah, even if he did steal from her. Drew offered his support and told Becky to do whatever she thought was best. Jonah promised he’d changed, but Becky couldn’t find it in herself to trust him.And just like that, she turned and walked away, ending the relationship.
