It turns out that Shane may actually be more than just an annoying, sleazy asshole, as it looks like he may have connections with the MacFarlane's. Eli sees Danielle outside the club and she tells him that she ain't chewing carpet because they have "connections". Debbie, wily sort that she is, figures this out pretty promptly. Jasmine meanwhile, is pretty thick for a supposed investigative reporter. She gets caught spying on Gary and is promptly sacked. She then heads back to Shane's, where she puts out quicker than a hooker with a rolling tab. Elsewhere, spirits in the choir build as they practice hard and begin to show some promise.
