Edit A month after their fallout, Bill's life is in shambles. After getting into a car accident, he is forced to go through AA meetings, where he meets Louise , who encourages him to keep going to the meetings even though he's not an alcoholic.
Meanwhile, Virginia is in Las Vegas, after getting into an ugly breakup with Dan. She is anxious to capitalize on her fame, and wants Hugh Hefner to publish an article in his magazine. Hefner agrees, but will only invest in the business if Bill and Virginia continue to work together. Bill and Virginia agree to work together as long as the work stays strictly professional--and want to bring in new partners for the both of them.
Bill starts by hiring Nancy Leveau , a former associate of Barton's. Virginia retaliates by hiring Art Dreesen , a psychologist. Virginia soon finds out that Nancy and Art are married and in an open marriage. After a night at a swingers party lands Art and Virginia together, Virginia finally confronts her feelings towards Bill--and realizes she still loves him. Meanwhile, Libby and Bill plan on having a divorce, after Bill revealed he has been having an affair at the end of the previous season.
However, their relationship softens throughout the season. Because of their legal issues, Bill's lawyer, Bram Keller , tries to get Libby to not pursue the divorce until after the trial ends. Libby and Keller go on to develop a close, intimate relationship. Libby gets an offer to study law in California, where she moves at the end of the season. Things get heated between Virginia and Nancy. Virginia wants Nancy and Art fired, especially as she learns Art told Nancy that he and Virginia had sex--which they did not.
Bill allows the two of them to stay on. Nancy wants to start her own clinic with Art. However, after Art learns that Nancy aborted his child, he wants nothing to do with her and turns her in to Bill and Virginia. Virginia continues to try and pursue Bill, who is reluctant to get back involved because he doesn't want to be hurt again. After going undercover to investigate a competing clinic in Kansas, Virginia reveals that she loves him, and he says he loves her too.
The two, reunited at last, agree to get married. Even though Virginia's parents marriage is falling apart and Bill's family is moving away that day, Bill and Virginia finally get married, and are photographed by the press exiting city hall, husband and wife.
