Jane's mom wants her father back in her and her brother Lucas' lives, and Jane doesn't want anything to do with him. Meanwhile, Danny's new girlfriend Leia has a problem—she doesn't feel that she fits in with Danny's friends.
Jane and Lucas' father comes back to town. The whole family, much to Jane's chagrin, is excited that he is back in their lives. Jane is suspicious about her father, but she can't quite understand why. When she finally remembers what he did to her as a little girl, she feels uncomfortable.
Meanwhile, Leia feels that she doesn't fit in with Danny's friends. So, Leia makes up lies, such as Sav coming on to her, and tells them to Danny. She has to lie to impress them and says that her dad is a huge music producer for bands such as Fall Out Boy and Aerosmith. They go to a show, and Leia is really embarrassed when the truth comes out. Danny decides to stay with her, but his friends completely cut her out.
