Graduation marks the end of a chapter, and it may spell trouble for our favorite couples. Ryan and Yasmine have an awkward encounter as they contemplate their future together, while Sarah wonders if Gwen is even thinking about the future. Gwen struggles to deal with Sarah hiding their relationship from her Mom - will she ever come out to her parents? Yearbook interviews reveal what's in store for the rest of the grads or at least what they think is in store and even Adrian is enjoying the festivities. By the way, have you seen Laura the Goth?
The graduation continues... It's Kris' big day, but Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell aren't acting quite normal. Colin tries protect Kris by hiding their parents failing relationship. Meanwhile, Roxanne has to hold it together when she runs into her old flame the "Hot Dog Man" for the MOST uncomfortable 5 seconds ever. We also meet the new kids on the block, a few clueless freshman who are in complete awe of the graduating seniors. Oh-and seriously, have you seen Laura the Goth? NEXT WEEK... Meet and follow our new kids for the beginning of their trip down he rabbit hole.
Escape to Candyland with our new kids - Remi, Alex, Tamsin, & Libby - for an epic adventure down the rabbit hole & around DC. As the summer kicks into high-gear, the 4 girls get ready for a devious night out of pushing the envelope from straight and narrow to... bent & hooked? But Libby is getting suspicious that one of her friends may not be who she says she is.
Remi takes Alex to her first rave... a world populated by Strawberry Shortcake (the rave queen), Tigger, & Dr. Schock... where the hog & frog cavort in the bog, and candy-kids fork over Hamiltons for defibrillator-highs: but of course the hippopotamus does NOT. Who is the hippopotamus, you ask? Libby think she knows... and Tamsin may too. And who is the creep following Alex down the rabbit hole? This Electric Kool-Aid Candyland proves toxic, when Alex gets in a tight-spot, which she is too incapacitated to get herself out of...
Remi is: straight edge, a fakey faker, a Betty Crocker wannabe - now friendless. It's time to let Alex in on the secret. Remi is a big fakey faker & a straight edge. Between some Robo-trip sips, Tamsin and Libby educate distraught Alex on the hidings of their Betty Crocker wannabe and her pathetic and insulting pancakes fix sexual assault world-view. What will happen to Tinkerbell and her three besties???
Remi's been busted and she CANNOT be trusted. The last 12 hours have been a roller coaster ride and everyone's ready to get off. Without the leader of the pack, Tamsin, Libby and Alex band together to find their way out of the rabbit hole and try to make sense of it all.
Gwen is having a horrible day, and on top of it all, she and Sarah seem to be growing further apart. Their future plans just don't seem to mix like apple pie & the 4th of July... and Gwen misses the way things used to be. Fortunately Ryan can lift her spirits out of the "coffee trenches". But is it just me, or does her co-worker have something other than coffee beans on the brain??
It's Life During Wartime down in the Coffee Trenches... and I think we all know trench-warfare is not all it's cracked up to be. Ryan seems to have some kind of "moment" with Gwen. Sort of. Or at least, *Sarah* seems to think so. Our favorite lovebirds spar in a verbal battle over Ryan's alleged intentions. Fortunately, truce flags are waved and the couple kisses and makes-up... Well, sort of...
Dun, dun, duuun! It's time for "The Talk." Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell are finally ready to fess up to Colin about the dreaded D-word... He surprises them with his easy breezy attitude (because, duh, he saw it coming). But there's still Kris to worry about, who is not taking the news so well. Maybe Grandma's apple pie will ease her sorrow?
The secret's officially out. Mr and Mrs. Mitchell are getting a divorce, and the thought of it has Colin feeling way overwhelmed. Nothing like a heart-to-heart with best friends to cheer him up-that is until the topic of Kris arises. Is Slake forgiven for his rendezvous with Colin's sister?
Coffee-swamp comrades, Gwen and Ryan, are fed up with their relationship woes... (what would *you* do if your very own girlfriend didn't have the decency to acknowledge your relationship or if she had your fate as a couple blowing in the wind??)... and now it's time to take action! Revenge always works, right?... Oh the games we play with our significant others.
It's Firebird VS. Enterprise. And just who do you think will win? Alex runs into her old pal and fellow Trekkie, Davis. As they reminisce about past summers from dorkier-days, fun-filled with B-movies and each others A+company, Davis and the Starship Enterprise get upstaged by - the Red Firebird - and its license-wielding-driver *Sam*, who whisks Alex, Tamsin, and Libby away to mischief in the park.
While the rest of the crew discusses Betty Boop and Georgetown's vampire attacks, Alex gets surly in the corner... well, maybe not so much surly, as lovelorn. Sam might take notice... but just where will the Firebird lead? And would the Enterprise get there faster?
After a disappointing encounter with Sam, Alex follows her fashion clogs... which lead all the way to Davis' window. Looks like a one-up for the Enterprise... but when the vino settles and the hangover sets in, does reality come crashing down?
