Lavon tells Zoe he’s at his lowest point. AB is mad, he lost the county fair and is the subject of the annual Owl’s roast. She tries to cheer him but fails and then Wade walks in and wants to talk to him but Lavon has to leave for the Owls.
Zoe asks what’s the matter and he tells her that Viv has been distant and his hanging out a lot with her ex Charles. She reassures him and says he shouldn’t feel threatened. She says she’ll talk to Viv later when they’re getting their nails done and he thanks her.
Lemon tries to get George to pay attention to her but he’s seeing her all romantic and fuzzy. He finally snaps out of it and she complains they got an A minus on their health inspection.

Lavon tells the Owls that he had a bad last week and he understands if they want to toast and roast someone else. The preacher takes up for Lavon and then all the guys talk about idiot stuff they have done in the name of love. Dash calls for a vote and they all hoot in favor of Lavon.
AB calls the Belles to order and she tells them that she knows they may be against her romance with Davis and if they want her to step down, she understands.

Cricket says the Belles should withdraw from the Owl’s toast and roast to support her and they all vote in agreement.

He asks how he can help George who says that what would happen if one of his flock had developed feelings for an irritating woman and needs to get rid of those feelings. The Reverend offers him a date with a visiting Sunday school teacher. The Reverend tells him it’s what God wants.
Viv and Zoe get their nails done and chat. She asks about Viv’s work and then about Wade. Viv says she’s been avoiding him because he was right – Charles is trying to get her back and she’s confused. She says they were married for 15 years and have a child. But Wade is great. She makes Zoe promise not to tell Wade anything and Zoe says she’ll keep it a secret as long as Viv talks to Wade. She says she will as soon as she figures out what to tell him.
Zoe is sneaking out of her place when Wade jumps out at her and asks if she’s avoiding him because she knows something about Viv she doesn’t want to tell him. She makes excuses and runs off.
Dash and the Owls rehearse the annual toast and roast. The Belles are late but then show up. Just two of the Belles show up and they says they’re not there to rehearse. They sing out a nice song about how they’re not coming and that ends with “suck it Lavon Hayes.” Lavon tells the Owls he’ll fix it. They look skeptical.
Lemon brings a pie to May the inspector and says she thought she looked down. May asks if this is about the A minus and Lemon says that’s not what she’s there about.

Lemon tells her she knows an excellent ballroom dancer who’s free tonight.
