Facing a restaurant with no patrons, Dion reluctantly seeks help from his former mentor. This leads Tommy to a startling revelation.

With the grand opening, there are no customers thanks to Patrick's little shoot-out.

Tommy snaps and confronts Dion about having slept with Rie, and immediately feels like a heel because even Habib backs up that it was just two long-time friends making cooking videos.

Patrick and the detective have words, and then a ridiculous stand-off in the elevator.

Tommy encourages Dion to swallow his pride and try to get his mentor, Dante, who Dion has naturally pissed off, to come and eat at Thirio and blog about it. Dante blows them off.

Dion returns Patrick's coke, and admits that it is not all there. Patrick, of course, decides that is the perfect moment to offer Dion another business opportunity, opening a new restaurant on some waterfront property he controls. And then he makes eyes at Dion's ass, and who the hell knows where that is going.

Tommy does his best Ross impersonation yet, and awkwardly invites Pilar up to the grand romantic gesture he has set up in the greenhouse on the roof of the restaurant. This is promptly interrupted when Dante actually shows up right before the restaurant closes (after they have dumped their prep).

Dante stays on his phone through each course, even the dessert course that Dion rescues from the trash. Surprise! He was "live blogging" his whole meal and raving about it. They find out just seconds before the phones start ringing with people eager to book reservations. Apparently they waited to hear how dessert was before calling.

The detective drops in on Dion, and says he's going to draft him in a new plan to kill Patrick.

Andre has a female friend call TJ and pretend to be his mother and say horrible things. That kid could teach Dion a few things about being a terrible person.

When Dion comes back into the restaurant, Tommy and Dante are bonding over some choice bottles of wine, and then Dante manages to spill the beans about the time Dion snuck out of a party to get with a "hot black chick". So yeah, Dion is exactly as terrible as you'd expect at this point.

Just wanted to drop a note here that I will not be making posts for the last episodes of the season. The finale was far, far too disappointing for me to waste any more time on this show.
