Summary Edit

Lena's old boyfriend and some pals from her old neighbourhood pay her a visit but they find they don't fit in her new life.

Storyline Edit

Lena's "homies" come to visit including her old boyfriend Picollo. Picollo (special guest star Tupac Shakur) is apparently trying to "reclaim" Lena. At first, she's glad to see them and things seem okay. The dorm girls are attracted to one of her male friends and her homegirl is on the make for Terrell. Soon, the homies are disrupting the dorm and Lena's having a hard time getting rid of them. Picollo refuses to accept that Lena is serious about her relationship with Dorian and even Lena is a bit swayed by the moment. When Dorian spies Picollo grabbing a kiss with Lena at a dance, the two guys fight it out. Eventually, Lena realizes that she's outgrown her old friends and refuses to let them question her new values or ruin her chances at an education.
