Storyline

God asks Joan to ask an unhappy troublemaker to the school's semi-formal dance. Meanwhile Luke is pleasantly baffled by Grace when he approaches her to remind him of their working together in the science fair and they end up going to the dance together. Adam goes to the dance stag as he's still on the outs with Joan after she destroyed his sculpture. Meanwhile Will uncovers evidence that the corruption of his predecessor may have been more widespread than originally thought. Written by Havan Ironoak
