Candy decides to compete in a walk for the hall's more voluptuous attendees and gets publicly humiliated. Angel attempts to comfort her, but in the end, just reminds Candy of how much she doesn't pass. To feel more whole and like a woman, Candy shops around for silicone injections, in hopes that she can get a more curvy look. When she's offered a cheaper deal by a shady supplier, she takes it, but the magic only seems to last for a night when signs of potentially deadly infection appear.

Elektra is on her own mission to become the woman she is. After her "sugar daddy" Dick shows back up, she explains to him her own plans to get surgery. He, however, is strongly against it and even threatens to abandon her if she goes through with it -- despite it being something Elektra really truly wants. Feeling forced to choose between who she is and living safely and comfortably, Elektra competes against another younger woman who has gone through with the surgery and hasn't looked back. She is the final push Elektra needs to make her decision.

Angel has some man problems of her own, with Candy's issues seemingly running into her personal relationship. After helping Candy work through her decision to get injections, Angel begins to seriously consider it herself. Especially when Stan can't seem to get it up during sex. Already feeling like she's an afterthought, Angel throws Stan out of her apartment.

Meanwhile, when Blanca learns that Damon had unprotected sex at one time with Ricky, she begins to think more of Damon's sudden fever. She turns to Pray, who stopped getting tested after a partner got sick, to help encourage the boys to make sure they're clean and healthy. The event is terrifying, but all of Blanca's children come out negative. Unfortunately, Pray learns that he's positive, and the diagnosis shatters both him and Blanca.

Dick: Well, if that future involves this procedure, it obviously doesn't include me.
