The Secret (#1.12)
5 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Seth has to face Anna and Summer now, and they become great buddies, but after he apologizes it all returns to normal. Ryan and Luke end up as partners in a project and they find out that Luke's dad is gay. This leads to Luke's dad coming out and it becomes a big gossip in town which Luke now has to deal with.

Great episode. I really didn't expect them bringing in the homosexual story into it. And it was done so well. I felt so bad for Luke and his dad. Glad they ended up alright at the end. And it will sure play a role in Luke's position in school now and will make his character more interesting.
