Episode Info

When Julia surprises Matt having sex with both Vanessa Bartholomew (recurring guest star KATE MARA) and Ridley Lange (recurring guest star SOPHIA BUSH), she humiliates him by demanding an intervention with Ridley's nonplussed mother and Vanessa's outraged parents, who didn't even know that Vanessa is a lesbian. Julia also clashes with Sean regarding how to parent Matt, but Matt appreciates his father's support. Following Sean's advice, Matt forms a stronger friendship with Vanessa, even though she cannot love him. Meanwhile, Julia flirts with her classmate, Jude Sawyer (recurring guest star PHILLIP RHYS), but balks when he invites her to a swingers' party. As Christian attempts to maintain an honest relationship with his accommodating girlfriend, he must confront his feelings for Julia after he mistakenly thinks he sees her at the swingers' party with Jude. Although clueless Sean had hired Jude as an intern as a favor to Julia, Christian terminates Jude.
