Love is in the Air, Part 2
To further complicate things, Connie has been acting strange ever since Tasha came to Odyssey, and it worsens when Jason and Tasha inform everyone that they are engaged. Jack Allen tells Jason that Connie has a crush on him. Jason talks to Connie about it, but she assures him that she doesn’t.
Meanwhile, Eugene is so confused about Katrina that he is also acting irrationally. Katrina calms Eugene down. She explains that Brandon Teller, the other man in her life, is more of a spiritual mentor than a boyfriend. Katrina still doesn’t know where that leaves Eugene. She feels they should be apart for a while and pray for God’s guidance. Eugene agrees.
Jason and Tasha continue to talk about their future plans. They have a big disagreement, though. Tasha wants to go back to Washington for work, but Jason wants her to quit her job.
By now, Jack has noticed Connie’s strange behavior. He asks about her little "soap opera." Connie admits she could be feeling left out, things are developing for both Jason and Eugene, but not for her. Jack counsels Connie to be patient and seek God’s will.
Later, Jason and Eugene sit sadly together at Whit’s End. Both Katrina and Tasha are leaving. Neither Jason nor Eugene knows exactly where he stands with his sweetheart. Jack tells them both to stop moping around, and they listen. Eugene and Jason rush off to the airport to say good-bye to Katrina and Tasha.
At the airport, Jason finds Katrina, while Eugene finds Tasha. Katrina admits to Jason that she loves Eugene. She tells Jason to relay the message. Eugene also finds out from Tasha that she is in love with Jason. Taking things one step further, Eugene gives Tasha his ring that he had intended for Katrina, since Jason had forgotten to give Tasha one. The ladies rush off to meet their flights, and Jason and Eugene are happy once again.
