Nanny Faye and Todd are in town to visit Savannah and Chase! Honestly though, it seems as if they really came for Nic. Todd is wary that Nic has been living with Savannah and decides to snoop, while Chase has his own problems with his growing candle business.
Todd believes that couples shouldn't live together until they're married, and the last time he checked, Savannah and Nic weren't married yet! Todd is very suspicious that Nic has been crashing at Savannah's house in L.A. even though the duo denies it. First piece of evidence in Todd's case - there are three toothbrushes in the bathroom! Nanny Faye tries to talk Todd off the ledge as she doesn't think Savannah is doing anything wrong. After a ton of convincing, Todd gets Faye on board to spy on the couple - he needs an answer! Nanny Faye is ready with latex gloves, binoculars and walkie-talkies; she can never be too careful! Even though she's helping Todd, Nanny Faye knows that Savannah wouldn't lie to her. Faye and Todd sleuth their way around Savannah's house but find no hard evidence that Nic is living there. Todd decides they have to wait for the night to see if Nic leaves before Savannah goes to sleep! In a not-so-subtle recon mission, Savannah busts Todd lurking around the perimeter of her house. She is NOT happy. At a peace offering lunch, Nic admits that he did ask Savannah to move in together, but she said no! It turns out both Savannah and Nic respect Todd's values and beliefs. In a rare turn of events, Todd admits that he was a little off-base.
Candles get Lit
Chase is ready to take the next step with his candle business and decides to have Elliot as his right hand man. Chase wants to get his vision for the candles into local stores around L.A. Chase calls their first meeting in a communal work space, a concept that Elliot can't seem to understand. Elliot thinks he's already ahead of the game and presents Chase with their first sale - a cactus candle! Chase is ticked because cacti aren't exactly his thing- and they don't have any product. Chase acknowledges that they can't blow the sale, even though he doesn't approve; he gives Elliot the go ahead to fulfill the order. Not only does Elliot change their manufacturer without permission, the delivered candles look nothing like cacti. In fact, they're NSFW. Chase fixes the order and tells Elliot that if he wants to be employee of the year, he has to go about things correctly. Elliot gets rid of the phallic candles by selling them to a sex shop. At least he got their money back! Chase delivers a proper cactus candle and orders a batch of candles he actually wants. The candles come out great, even Savannah approves!

Savannah finds herself stuck in a lie between her two loves - Nic and shopping! Chase decides to hop on the relationship bandwagon himself. The only problem is, he has no prospects - well except for Elliot.
Nic is in town, which means plenty of quality time - and shopping - with Savannah! Savannah can't seem to stop spending money, she calls it research - after all her job is in fashion! Nic is more of a saver and doesn't know how it's even possible to spend that much money. Savannah is even balling out on kitchen supplies; the limit of her shopping does not exist! Savannah promises Nic (and Chase) she'll cut back on the shopping and return some of the junk she bought. Her new vow lasts a day before she's back on the shopping grind. In an attempt to fool Nic, she hides her new swag around the house. Nic finds shoes in the washing machine and addresses the problem head on - shoes belong in the closet! Savannah is embarrassed to admit that this is her flaw, but hey, it's better that Nic sees it before they get married! The two love birds sit down and plan out a (hefty) budget. Savannah and Nic seem to have this compromise thing down pat!
The Love Connection
Seeing Savannah and Nic around the house makes Chase realize he's ready for love - and not just from Elliot! The boys have tried to meet girls in the club, but they haven't found their soulmates. Savannah tells Chase to read a self-help book, maybe that'll give him the answer. Elliot throws out the idea of an arranged marriage, but that doesn't seem right. He tops himself by suggesting they use a matchmaker to help them find dates. Chase and Elliot meet with the matchmaker, and she does give them good advice. If Chase wants a girl like his mom, and his mom doesn't go to the club, maybe he shouldn't search for a girl there! The big caveat with the matchmaker is that they'll have to shell out ,000. Even Savannah (the queen of shopping) thinks this is a steep price. Why can't he just be a normal person and meet someone the old fashion way? Chase ultimately decides to hit up his high school crush and ask her out - maybe the 10th time is the charm. Surprisingly she agrees to go bowling with Chase. The date goes so well they plan a second date. Chase wants to take her to dinner!
