Season One Edit

Self-Portrait Edit

Seeing a frustrated Desna Simms at a shrimp stop, Ruval generously offers to pay for Desna's meal. The two introduce themselves before parting their ways.

Desna contacts him for a date. They spend their time on the pier. They converse about their pasts: Gregory tells her that he originally wished to be a break dancer, but after watching those around him die, he chose a field of medicine. Abruptly, Desna receives a call from Ken, forcing her to leave Gregory.

They agree to a second date at Desna's house. He is briefly acquainted with Polly and Ann before they leave. Desna and Gregory eat and speak more about their past--speaking about their previous relationships with others. They share a passionate kiss that breaks to another call for Desna, this one from Virginia. Though he expresses mild irritation, Gregory lets Desna go on with her errand and leaves.

After winning the NailPalm Competition, Gregory surprises Desna with flowers and asks if she would want to celebrate with drinks. He agrees to join her and the girls instead and is introduced to them each.
