Like the title says, Avery Jessup has returned, and apparently, in Korea, cigarettes are the best source of protein and there is no weekend. Jack discovers that there was another American hostage, Scott Scottsman (played by Michael Mosley, Scrubs) and of course this makes Jack suspicious. He becomes even more suspicious when Avery says anything that may have happened while she was away is forgiven. Jack decides to play a game to get her to admit to her guilt. What he doesn’t realize is that it was all a game so Avery could get him to admit to his indiscretion. Despite what happened with her mother Avery forgives him and they go back to their usual selves.
While Criss is discussing the upstairs renovation, Liz realizes that she wears the pants in her relationship with Criss. Jenna tells Liz to embrace it. So Liz does just that: she treats herself to a fedora and gives Criss money so he can buy himself something pretty. Criss doesn’t like this, so he decides to double his hot dog selling efforts and contribute to the household. His efforts get him into a fight with Sesame Street character knock offs. And the roles have yet to be resolved.
Jenna is trying to find a sponsor for her wedding. Since that’s the classiest way to go. Originally she was going with the Southern Bureau of Tourism, but the training for their commercial brought out the Florida hick she used to be. While taping a commercial for her new, classier sponsor, the Florida Hick deep inside keeps coming out. In the end Jenna finds her sponsor: off-brandheelz.com

Kristen is a confused young adult who sometimes thinks TV shows are actually her life. Wouldn’t that be cool? Unless she was a victim on Dexter, or a deranged privileged teenager on gossip girl, or a wolf on teen wolf, or Liz Lemon! Never mind. It wouldn’t be cool. Kristen is a young adult.
