Full Plot

A color factory art exhibit has come into town, and Andi is interesting in going with Buffy and Cyrus. Buffy suggests that Walker come along too, since he is an artist himself. Andi is clearly not happy with this arrangement, but before she can say anything the bell rings. Later at The Spoon, Andi tells Buffy that she is uncomfortable being around Walker, and Buffy agrees to not ask Walker to come to the exhibit.

Meanwhile, Bex and Celia are planning the wedding between Bex and Bowie, but Bex is frustrated with Celia's efforts to control the entire planning process, including picking the date of the engagement. Bex complains to Bowie about the situation, but Bowie recommends going along with Celia's ideas to avoid another falling out between them. Since neither Bex nor Bowie have a date in mind for the wedding, they agree to go with Celia's date.

After talking with Buffy, Walker visit's Andi's apartment and tells her that they need to talk. Walker says that he does not want to come between Buffy and Andi's friendship, and says he would be willing to not go to the gallery. Andi relents and tells Walker that she overreacted and that he can go along with Buffy. Walker thanks Andi for being cool and Andi tells him that she'll be there as well. After Walker leaves, however, Andi appears to regret this decision.

Elsewhere, Bowie agrees to become the guitar instructor for a young boy named Shaun, who is said by his father, Victor, to have a lot of talent. At the first lesson, however, Shaun is revealed to not be very talented and is instead quite annoying, which puts Bowie's patience to the test. Meanwhile, Cyrus is failing gym and asks his P.E. coach what other elective he can try instead to boost his GPA. Cyrus tries dance class, but despite the encouragement of his new dance teacher he is shown to be lost and awkward compared to the other students.

Walker joins Buffy, Cyrus, and Jonah at the art gallery, but Andi stays behind, still feeling uncomfortable with Buffy and Walker's relationship. The four have fun without her, posting several pictures on social media, much to Andi's disappointment. Bex and Bowie try to cheer her up, but Andi gives a paranoid speech about how Buffy likes Walker more than her and how Buffy doesn't care how Andi feels. Buffy and Andi's long-standing friendship appears to have come to a breaking point.
