ISSUES OF DEATH ARE STIRRED UP – Matt works with anti-death penalty activists to get his client clemency from being put to death, leading to Kelly and Matt facing turmoil in their relationship because her recent attack has made her less-than-supportive of criminals. Meanwhile, Steve struggles with the decision of whether to sell his beloved Corvette in order to fit the role of new father and husband, and Donna is unsettled by the death of a homeless man she briefly met in front of her store.
Steve and Janet ask Kelly and Dylan to be their baby's godparents. The foursome heads to Ojai for the weekend to meet with the minister. The minister suspects that Dylan is afraid to commit to a woman because of guilt over Toni's death. Dylan and Kelly plan to watch the sunset together. They learn from the news that Matt saved his client, so Kelly decides to go home and congratulate him. Gina catches Dylan and Kelly hugging and accuses them of fooling around. Dylan goes to Kelly's apartment to share his feelings, but sees her with Matt. Steve backs out of plans to sell the Corvette to help pay for a minivan. An angry Janet lets David sell the car to a woman who seems interested in him. Janet has a change of heart, but David's friend destroys the car in a performance art show about chauvinism (for which she also tape recorded David). Mel pays off Gina. When she demands more money, he stops payment on the check. Gina calls Jackie to share her revelation. A homeless man dies outside of Donna's store. She tries desperately to uncover his identity and contact his family.
