In the aftermath of her failure to merge her urinal cake company with Shirley Ryland, Maris falls into a dire financial situation that forces her to sell both it and her controlling shares in Bear Creek to an eccentric British entrepreneur, Rodney Bell. A few months later, the club reopens for business, and the gang are disheartened to learn of the many changes that have occurred during their absence, including an extensive list of Britishisms Bell expects them to uphold. Yuri and Svetlana's decision to relive their dating years proves challenging when neither of them is willing to admit that it has left them exhausted. David prepares for the return of Hester and Gregory, who eloped to Vegas following their impromptu getaway. Charlie has taken to spending all his time with Annie and Nate.

The gang are left debating whether they are obligated to remain loyal to their former employer.

Svetlana tries to settle a dispute between Rodney Bell and the security guards when he implements a bold new uniform, causing them to resemble British Beefeaters.

Worried that he wouldn't get a look-in if Annie considered him a bad father figure, Charlie volunteers at the club's daycare to gain some experience but soon finds his white-collar roots don't gel with the equally stuffed-shirt offspring of the club's members. Rodney asks Hester to design a new logo for the club's sign, but she struggles to work within the boundaries of his extensive list of rules and restrictions.

Feeling they can't stand idly by while their friends are struggling, Annie convinces the others to join her in a strike against Rodney's reign of terror.

Yuri and Svetlana race to the club to warn their friends not to fall for Maris' tricks, but are unable to enter due to their suspension.
