The next morning, Shain thoughtfully wakes everyone up, screaming, shaking tents, and mooning them from the top of a tall boulder. Tyler tells us that you can tell how jealous Cara is that he and Katie shared a tent.
Anna is telling Katie about the party the night before. When Katie is telling Anna about their foray into the Great Outdoors, she says that she and Tyler are officially a Thing. Which is great, because he looks good with his shirt off. Except that it’s possible he’s really stupid. Oh, dear. I feel you, girl. You’re young – just enjoy the sex and break it off if it starts to feel too serious. Trust me on this. He isn’t going to get any smarter. Katie also tells Anna that it has made her really uncomfortable that Cara is always around seeming jealous.
Shain’s dad rolls up to hear about the camping trip and it seems as though Shain forgot to bring home the tent he borrowed. Oh, Shain. What wacky hijinks will you be up to next time?
Episode 10: Ghosts in the Holler
At Shain’s house, his mom tries to have a talk about his future. She says he needs to start thinking about his career and whether or not he wants to have a family. He tells her he’d rather not think; it hurts his brain. At least he’s honest.
The girls are grocery shopping in a sad-looking small market. Anna dares Katie to eat an entire hot pepper, and Katie gets about halfway through the pepper before realizing that yes, it’s really hot, and probably a bad idea. They’re shopping because Cara’s ex-girlfriend is coming to town, and they’re throwing a party. Can’t say I’ve ever thrown a party for an ex before, but okay. Cara is attempting to establish a friendship with her ex.
Anna and Katie are really curious about the mechanics of a lesbian relationship.
The boys are doing their best American Gladiator at a mudhole. Joey gossips to Shain about Cara’s ex-girlfriend coming to town. A misogynistic Shain, rather than being disappointed that he might lose a chance with Cara, confidently tells the other guys that the way he sees it, he gets two chances. Ugh.
Ten times more entertaining than Shain and a hundred times less sexist.
Sevgi (Cara’s ladyfriend) arrives at the girls’ house, and she and Cara have a heartwarming reunion. What’s really sweet is that you can hear their hearts beating as they hug (presumably) over the microphone Cara is wearing. Ashley comes over and tells us she’s excited to have Cara around, because she has never experienced the other side, but she’s bi-curious.
As the party starts, there’s an awkward meeting between Sevgi and Shain, and then Salwa corners Sevgi on whether or not she and Cara will ever get back together. Whoa, Salwa. She just got there a couple hours ago. Give her a minute. But regardless, Sevgi says she hopes to be with Cara, and then Cara comes over and Salwa pushes them into kissing a little bit. As Salwa fawns over them for being cute, Shae, Shain, Tyler, etc all give each other uncomfortable looks.
