When they give dating a shot, he cools off fast, and Paige realizes she doesn't know him as well as she thought. Hooking up with a roommate is guaranteed to get complicated, but that's not the only reason Griffin's acting so distant. What's he trying to hide? Meanwhile, Darcy regrets trusting Jane with a secret.

When Paige discovers the truth, she realizes her little distraction is a lot more than she bargained for.
