Ellie's broke and, if she can't raise some rent money, she's faced with the prospect of moving back in with her mom. She's so desperate that high-stakes gambling with Alex starts to look like a good idea. Meanwhile, Paige wants to know what Matt's hiding from her.
When Alex wants to play for more money, Ellie has to decide whether or not to gamble her rent away.
Their dates are continuously interrupted and when Matt stands Paige up on one date, she wonders if he still seeing his ex-girlfriend behind her back.
Paige goes to his apartment to confront him, but discovers he lives in a poor, beat-down apartment with a leaky roof.
Realizing she wasn't trusting him, their relationship becomes even stronger as Paige uncovers the side of him that he had been hiding.
