When they run into an old victim, Mel develops a conscience. Jen’s tightens her stranglehold on Mel but this only succeeds in driving her away. The friendship erupts when Jen discovers Mel having sex with a client. Jen, desperately unhappy, seeks out their mutual ex boyfriend. Jen is forced to take stock of her life and win her friend back.
