Plot: A news alert on the local news informs all residents of Zelen that there is a Level 3 storm coming from the coast, and that it could cause some serious damage to properties and commercial buildings. Nina decides to host a "storm party" in the storm cellar under the Masson family home so it could provide shelter for some of the residents.

She invite a few neighbors, who invite some of their friends; Riley invites Dr Powell and James and Terry bring Helen and Jolena, along with their pet dog, Buckley, much to Stella's annoyance.

During the storm, Grayson, Kamil, James and Riley decide to drink beer to pass the time, Stella joins them. The ladies decide to play a boardgame with the children. At some point, all the adults begin drinking, and have "adult talks", leaving the children alone. Stella and Buckley go under one of the camp beds, drunk and giggling. The children amuse themselves with a game of Truth or Dare, while Wilbur sleeps peacefully, completely oblivious to the noise.

After the storm, the adults agree to keep the secrets shared during their "adult talk" a secret. The children feel they're all closer now, after their game of Truth or Dare. Stella and Buckley swear that their night together was a one-time thing, and give each other snarky looks as Buckley departs with his owners.
