Tucker Holmes and Haley Leone have slept in and after the latter finds out she missed a rescheduled meeting she blames it on the former. Frustrated with their relationship, Haley suggests they take a break for a week to see if it helps. At Maggie Yen's suggestion Tucker spends the week dating several women who've shown an interest in him in the past. First Tucker goes out with Lisa Collins, which went poorly though the pair remained friends. Next Tucker joined Madison Yen, Belinda Frazier and Connie Soyer for drinks, getting Connie's number and driving a drunk Madison home. At her apartment Madison seduced Tucker but he ran out after realizing they weren't using protection, narrowly avoiding having sex. The next night Tucker took Calista Suvari out after work, but it was soon revealed she was looking for a raise and willing to sleep with Tucker to get it, so in turn he froze her with the Wand of Kronos but decided to get her the money through T&M Productions. The next night Tucker went to a social function that Connie had been invited to as her plus one, but after she showed disinterest he froze her and displayed her as a mannequin for the rest of the night. Friday Tucker went to a movie with Nina Nichols and while it was pleasant there wasn't much romance save for a simple goodnight kiss, though Tucker did stop time to sleep with Nina shortly after the date ended. Finally on Saturday Tucker visited Julie Vaughn while time was frozen and after helping her meet Lindsay Yari the pair ended up confessing their love for one another and had sex in the soccer stadium while time was still stopped. The day after Haley officially ended things with Tucker and, in a moment of emotional turmoil, Tucker and Maggie slept together, though they immediately regretted it after the fact. The pair quickly moved on, though they did note that their family-like relationship could be expressed with forms of affection typically frowned upon by blood relatives.
