Kimmie's boyfriend, James (recurring guest star Nate Torrence), breaks up with her when she admits that Richard kissed her. She's torn between trying to get James back or telling Richard how she really feels about him. Meanwhile, a visit from Richard's autocratic dad, Rupert Royce (guest star Charles Shaughnessy – The Nanny), throws the firm into chaos over who will be getting the next big promotion, and Marika struggles to find a way to tell her friends she's gay.
Kimmie celebrates her first Valentine's Day with a boyfriend (recurring guest star Nate Torrence), but work intervenes and, later, Richard sends her mixed messages about their relationship. Meanwhile, Marika gets a different message of her own when new friend, Frankie (guest star Hana Mae Lee – Pitch Perfect), hits on her and Kendall hosts a sex toy party in honor of the holiday.
After law firm big wig Porter Warner (guest star BOB SAGET) advises Kimmie to act more professional, she starts calling herself "Kimberly" and looks to Kendall for advice. But friends Helen-Alice and Marika fear that the new and improved Kimmie may be too cool for their 10th annual Cookie Prom, a celebration of their disastrous high school prom.
When Richard's hard-partying ex, Lucinda (guest star ROBIN McLEAVY – Hell on Wheels, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), turns up in New York City, they hook up and he falls off the wagon. Kimmie and Kendall team up to show Richard that Lucinda is a bad influence. Meanwhile, Ruby (recurring guest star DAN AHDOOT) asks Marika out and she assumes it's a date. She's shocked when he tells her he just wanted a wing woman and he's always assumed that she is gay.
After Kimmie loses her virginity to James (recurring guest star NATE TORRENCE) and the pair begin having sleepover dates, Marika and Helen-Alice feel miffed that their friend suddenly has no time for them. Meanwhile, Kendall, feeling a little lonely since her breakup with Richard, stoops to a new low - hanging out with Marika and Helen-Alice.
After her breakup with Richard, Kendall takes her anger out on Kimmie — so much so that Brian Headfoot, the firm's frazzled head of Human Resources (guest star Fred Armisen – Saturday Night Live, Portlandia), is called in to broker a truce between them. Meanwhile, Marika and Helen-Alice agree to let Jazmine's vapid friends Heidi (recurring guest star Carrie Wiita) and Hayley (recurring guest star Riki Lindhome) give them a makeover at their new salon.
Kimmie taps into her alter ego, "Lil' Big Kim," to convince famous rap artist Miss T (guest star DANIELLE MONÉ TRUITT) - who hates all lawyers - to sign with the firm. Meanwhile, Miss T's bodyguard, Antwan (guest star LAVELL CRAWFORD – Breaking Bad), takes a shine to Kimmie when she ends up taking the whole gang to an exclusive club in an attempt to seal the deal.
Kimmie invites James (recurring guest star NATE TORRENCE) to her place for a dinner party. What could go wrong? Lots, especially when neighbors Dan (recurring guest star JOHN GEMBERLING), Benji (recurring guest star PAUL RUST) and Ruby (recurring guest star DAN AHDOOT) volunteer their catering services, and sister Jazmine (recurring guest star ASHLEY TISDALE) and her new hubby Jason (recurring guest star DARIN BROOKS) show up very drunk.
Richard reluctantly drives Kimmie, Marika and Helen-Alice to a remote cut-your-own Christmas tree lot upstate, but the trip over the river and through the woods goes terribly wrong when Marika gets them lost and they run out of gas on Christmas Eve. They think they're saved when they find a beautiful cabin miraculously stocked with a holiday feast — until the cranky old man who lives there (guest star Paul Dooley – The Practice, Sixteen Candles) shows up. Meanwhile, Kendall goes it alone with her frosty parents, Spencer (guest star Alan Ruck – Spin City, Ferris Bueller's Day Off) and Lydia (guest star Mo Gaffney – That '70s Show).
Kimmie thinks back to how her big promotion at work changed her life and gave her the confidence to convince Helen-Alice and Marika to actually go out on a Friday night.
Kendall sets Kimmie up with one of Richard's dorky old school friends, James (guest star Nate Torrence – She's Out of My League, Mr. Sunshine). But as Kimmie slowly warms to James on a double date, Richard has a surprising reaction. Meanwhile, Dan (recurring guest star John Gemberling), Benji (recurring guest star Paul Rust) and Ruby (recurring guest star Dan Ahdoot) temporarily move in with Kimmie and the gang, and slowly begin to drive the ladies crazy.
Kimmie and the gang decide to attend a seminar by Jane Spencer aka "The Love Lioness" (guest star MOLLY SHANNON – Saturday Night Live), a relationship guru who likens finding men to hunting prey in the wild. The ladies try her theories out at a hotel bar. It works a little too well when Kimmie picks up a man named Parker (guest star WILL SASSO – MADtv), but she isn't sure what to do when he invites her up to his room. Recurring guest stars include JOHN GEMBERLING as Dan, PAUL RUST as Benji and DAN AHDOOT as Ruby.
