Lux encouraged Baze to reveal what she already knew - that he is in love with Cate, just like a part of Cate is in love with him. Baze tried to stop Cate's wedding, but he was too late and Cate married Ryan. Heading into next season, our unlikely threesome become a foursome as Ryan joins the family. Cate and Ryan return from their honeymoon to discover that major changes have been made at the radio station in their absence. A very confused Baze struggles with his feelings for Cate and ends up hooking up with new bartender, Paige. Meanwhile, Lux and Bug find themselves at a crossroads in their relationship.
