Saffron has moved out of the house and into university housing, leaving a despondent Edina home alone. Meanwhile, Patsy learns that Ella magazine has folded, and Magda suggests that she go with her to work in New York. Edina and Patsy commiserate drunkenly with each other on the sudden changes in their lives. Saffron returns and is appalled at their behavior. Edina announces that she plans to sell the house and "find herself", which annoys Saffron to the point where she storms out. Edina's plans also mean that she's cutting off Patsy, which prompts the latter to take the job in New York, thereby putting their relationship on hiatus.
