Without her lasagna business to keep her preoccupied, Katie feels like her life is once again off course. As she searches for purpose, she redirects her energy toward Greg and the kids becoming overbearing and controlling. Franklin challenges an older boy to a duel in an effort to win back Anna-Kat's affections.
Katie is taken aback when she learns Taylor's boyfriend Trip has been spending the night. Greg is forced to separate the kids when Anna-Kat and Franklin both come down with mono. And when Oliver starts spending too much time at the office, Cooper begins to feel neglected.
With Anna-Kat and Franklin home with mono, Katie seizes the opportunity to use them as the backdrop for her mommy vlog. And when Taylor's first college paper comes back with an A, Greg questions her TA's intentions. Meanwhile, Cooper helps Oliver renovate the basement.

To celebrate the momentous 100th episode milestone of his podcast, Franklin invites Katie and the family to make guest appearances on his show, “Getting Frank with Franklin.” After witnessing his intrusive tactics with Taylor and the others, Katie is determined to keep her interview light and fun but is surprised when her mom Kathryn joins her. Meanwhile, Greg asks Lonnie to be his campaign manager to help strengthen his social media presence.
