One Pasadena, Calif. house serves as the focal point for three decades worth of marital strife.

In present day, high-powered lawyer Taylor has an open marriage with husband Eli.
A usually reserved Beth Ann attempts to spice up her marriage. Simone turns to Naomi's son Tommy for solace after finding out Karl hasn't been as good at covering his adulterous tracks as he let on. Eli checks an item off of his sexual bucket list, but his happiness is short lived when he realizes there's more to Taylor and Jade's relationship than he initially thought.

Simone and Karl try to keep up appearances at a gala but cooler heads do not prevail when Tommy gets jealous. Taylor and Eli run into Jade's former lovers, forcing Taylor to confront the true nature of her feelings.
Beth Ann takes a walk on the wild side with April, leading to an interesting evening at a dinner party with Rob's boss.

Hijinks ensue and secrets come to light when Simone and Karl have dinner with Amy's conservative future in-laws. Tensions rise in the throuple after Taylor begins to question the living arrangement and reveals a dark truth about Eli.
Beth Ann is elated when Rob ends his affair, but that feeling is short-lived when Beth Ann learns that everything is not as she thinks. While Simone and Karl work to find common ground in their relationship, conflict ensues as Naomi grows suspicious of Tommy's erratic behavior. Eli, Taylor and Jade try to work out their issues by heading to a polyamory retreat but Eli's relapse with addiction may derail everything.
Beth Ann recruits Sheila to help pull off her faux diagnosis, taking her already far-fetched plan another step too far. As Simone and Tommy arrange their European rendezvous, a revelation may foil their plans.
