In the episode, titled “At the First Clear Word,” Bay (Vanessa Marano) wakes after a night of drinking with her friend Tank (guest star Max Adler, “Glee”) to find that she has slept with him, although she doesn’t remember doing so. She tries to piece together the events of the evening, but as she speaks with Tank and different people about the situation, what really happened may not be so clear.
