Monica Ryan and Gil Butler rediscover the devotion they shared as children, but Monica wonders if Gil isn't just after her desserts, prolonging a long-standing family restaurant feud.

When Haley Tannehill meets online pal Scott Jantzen, he leads her to give her heart to God first, before pursuing her for himself. But a secret about the Long Horn Restaurant down the street from Haley's family restaurant may tear them apart.
