After premiering last week, Looking returns with a second episode tonight.

The HBO comedy-drama centers around three friends – played by Murray Bartlett (Guiding Light), Jonathan Groff (Glee, Boss) and newcomer Frankie J. Alvarez (Smash) – who are grappling with life in San Francisco, America's most gay-friendly city.

In the pilot, Patrick (played by Groff) got dumped on a first date with a man he met online, attended his ex-boyfriend's bachelor party (awkwardly running into him at a bathroom urinal) and met a cute guy while riding the city's public transportation.

In the episode's final frames, Patrick searches out Richie (Raul Castillo), who is working the door at a neighborhood bar.

A clip from tonight's episode reveals that a relationship between Patrick and Richie is quickly developing.

“You can learn a lot about a person in 30 minutes,” Richie, a barber, tells Patrick as they get to know each other over beers.

“Thirty minutes is a quick haircut,” Patrick responds with a smile.

After a bit more banter, Patrick invites Richie to his apartment.

“Let's go somewhere else first,” Richie says.

“Yeah, that's a good idea,” Patrick says. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
