Molly jumps in when Romy can't join Sarah to audition for a jingle-singing gig, which they win together. But later, tragedy precludes them from doing the job when Molly is killed by a mugger in a deserted alley. This devastates everyone, especially Romy, who feels frustrated at not being able to have done anything for Molly. After an encounter with Molly's visiting father, Romy decides she needs a break from the city. Maguire also deals with his own anger and frustration and gets no help from Joss, who does not think that it's a big issue. Also, Sarah deals with her own shock at this turn of events and is befriended by Douglas, the detective in charge of the investigation.
