Darcy's life falls further to pieces when Marcus breaks up with her because he's tired of her obsessing about Dex and Rachel. Thinking quickly, Darcy contacts her fifth-grade boyfriend, Ethan, who is now living in London, and convinces him to let her stay with him "for a few weeks." She's already planning to stay longer.

Eventually Ethan confronts Darcy about her self-centered nature and lack of concern for her unborn baby. Stung, Darcy makes a list of ways she can improve herself. As she becomes more considerate, she finds herself in a "real" relationship with a doctor (after switching to another ob/gyn). However, she's still sharing a platonic bed with Ethan in his small apartment... even though Ethan's got a girlfriend.
