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.
