Mel plans a weekend getaway for the gang on a ranch, but the boys seem to be thinking of open pastures in the relationship sense. The thought of a little horesplay makes Danny question just what he is doing with Mel. In Real World fashion, the gang hit the bars the night before their trip. While out, a mystery girl plants a much unexpected kiss on Wes. Wes panics and immediately starts explaining, "she kissed me" to anyone who will listen. Lucky for Wes, Wren brushes it off as "not a big deal." On the drunken walk home, Danny enlightens Wes that they need their space from the girls to be able to take advantage of the experience and "see what's up." The next morning, still a little hung over, the gang arrives at the ranch for a little riding. Mel shows off her skills on a horse and impresses the group. Later that night there is a sing-along by the fire --which also provides the setting for Mel and Danny's snuggle-fest and relationship talk. Danny continues to question the relationship. The next day the gang gets down to some dirty work cleaning up after the horses, but the chore breaks into a "poo war." Later that night, the boys seem to all be in agreement that Wes and Danny need some space from the girls or face missing out on what could be the best time of their life. Back in Austin, Danny and Mel explain to each other that they are on different pages in their relationship. Mel is tired of waiting for Danny to understand why she wants to be with him and Danny still feels he is missing out on something. Guess you don't know what you got till it's gone.
