Senior year means college is right around the corner! Jenna and Tamara encountered their first taste of college and fell in love — in more ways than one!
The May 13 episode of Awkward gave us a little glimpse into what the future looks like for the Palos Hills teens. Jenna (Ashley Rickards) went on her first college tour and met a hot new guy who’s right up her alley. Plus, Matty (Beau Mirchoff) finally confessed his secret!
‘Awkward’ Recap: What The Future Holds
It’s college visit time! Jenna and Tamara (Jillian Rose Reed) were off to see what the future had in store for them. Jenna was so ready to go from “that girl” to “it girl.” All Jenna had to do was ace her interview. Tamara told Jenna to make sure she had her act together or they wouldn’t be roommates!
The girls also discovered college was a Pinterest board for hot guys. Jenna spotted a hottie, but he invited Lacey (Nikki DeLoach) to a party and not her. Meanwhile, Kevin (Mike Faiola) was reminiscing about his college days, much to Lacey’s dislike.
Like most high school seniors, Jenna was nervous about getting into college. She went on a tour and her guide was all kinds of hot. He asked who her favorite writer was and she blanked. However, after the tour, she went up to Luke (Evan Williams) and revealed her favorites. They hit it off instantly. (Matty who?)
‘Awkward’ Recap: Keeping Secrets
After Matty totaled his car, his parents were pretty pissed at him. Jake (Brett Davern) asked what his deal was, but Matty still tried to hide his secret. Jake asked nicely and Matty was ready to open up until Jake got a text from Autumn!
Val (Desi Lydic) called Matty to her office because she was concerned about him. He was skipping school and he quit his job, which caused Val to think he was gay. Matty assured her that he wasn’t, but it was becoming clear to everyone that he was hiding something big.
After school, Matty and Jake found Sadie (Molly Tarlov) by Jake’s car. Sadie said life sucked and Matty vowed there would be no more wallowing among his friends. He invited them all over and Eva (Elizabeth Whitson) asked if she could come. She even offered to bring alcohol! Sadie was not happy with the extra invite and called Eva a “straight-up creeper.”
‘Awkward’ Recap: Rage On/Read On
What’s college without a party? Jenna accompanied Tamara to a college rager. Tamara was in love with sorority life and hit it off with girl who acted just like her.
Meanwhile, Matty and the crew were living it up at his house. Eva talked up the hot tub and Matty and Jake were all for it. Eva started stripping and told Sadie that she totally understood if she didn’t feel comfortable. Sadie proved she wasn’t a prude and started stripping herself! The two ladies taunted each other to the point of stripping naked! Let’s just say Matty and Jake were loving this turn of events.
Jenna left the party and headed to a literacy fundraiser. She watched Luke speak and was entranced. The two bonded over their love of literature.
Later, Matty, Jake, Sadie and Eva started taking shots. Matty passed out and Sadie offered to put him to bed. While Sadie went to fetch some water, Matty texted Jenna! Too bad she was already making out with Luke!
Sadie came back with the water and he thanked her for being so nice to him. He asked why they had never hooked up and Sadie said she had tried. Matty kissed her, but they both agreed that there was nothing romantic between them. He let it slip that he could be her brother since he was adopted. Sadie was shocked and comforted Matty. (Aw!)
‘Awkward’ Recap: New, Hot Prospects
Jenna slept over at Luke’s! He said he was going to be in Palos Verdes soon and wanted to see her again. So much for a one night stand!
Tamara was severely hungover from the party and so was Lacey. Kevin was disappointed in Lacey for going to a college party. Lacey told Kevin she needed one night of fun. She never got to experience college because she was taking care of Jenna.
Tamara was still hungover at her interview. The dean asked about the marks on her arms, which she had gotten the night before. While he was looking away, Tamara threw up in his cup! Even though Tamara’s interview didn’t go too hot, Jenna’s went amazingly. The dean said Jenna would be a great fit for the university.
After a night of just snuggling, Eva snuck into Matty’s room and found Matty and Sadie in bed together! She took a picture of them snuggling. What will she do with it?
Tamara told Jenna she aced her interview and blew it off like it was no big deal. However, Jenna was excited about college and her future. She saw the text Matty sent her the night before, but she deleted it. Then, she got a text from Luke, who said he couldn’t wait to see her again!
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of tonight’s Awkward? Has Jenna really moved on from Matty? Do you like Matty and Sadie as just friends? What do you think about Luke? Let us know!
