After throwing David out of her beach front apartment, Donna meets with Noah who takes her on a sailing cruise, and who rescues a bankrupt David from his loan shark who wants a huge payback, with interest, for the loan. Meanwhile, Erica runs away from Brandon and Kelly to go back to her pimp, Riggs. But after a heated confrontation, Erica comes to her senses and helps Brandon write her life story for his newspaper.
But Brandon soon finds himself in trouble when he refuses to reveal his source about his story to an assistant district attorney who wants to prosecute Erica's pimp. Also, Carly persuades a reluctant Steve to take a paternity test to find out if Jody, his former flame, is really pregnant with his baby.
