  • The episode title, "More Than Words," probably refers to Lena explaining to Dana that the "N-word" Nathan called Dana once is more than just a word, as she still feels hurt by it. It might also be a reference to Cole telling Jude that labels are more than just words, as they also keep a special meaning and power for everyone who carries them.
  • It is revealed that Cole has feelings for Callie, even kissing her. However, she turns him down because she sees him as friend and needs time for herself right now.
  • After some encouraging words from Cole about his dislike of labels, Jude officially comes out to Connor in this episode, accepting he is gay. 
  • Mariana breaks up with Mat, although not telling him the true reason why, and says it is best they go their separate ways.
  • Brandon and Kat get kicked out of Idyllwild.
  • AJ hints at his attraction for Callie by flirting with her in the end of the episode.
  • Mike is absent in this episode.
