Jenna realized she may not be completely over Matty on the May 27 episode of ‘Awkward.’ Plus, which fan-favorites got carted off to the slammer?
The May 27 episode of Awkward was one filled with back-stabbing drama and heartbreak. Jenna (Ashley Rickards) made honest realizations about her new (and old) relationships, Sadie (Molly Tarlov) dealt with a nasty new enemy and Matty’s (Beau Mirchoff) dark turn landed him in big trouble.
‘Awkward’ Recap: Major Make-outs & Major Burns
Jenna was getting the hang of moving on with her life and away from the high school drama. Senior year was in full swing, she had an awesome new boyfriend and no lingering feelings for Matty. Everything seemed to be all good. She should have known this good luck wouldn’t last long.
Luke (Evan Williams) was helping her with her homework, but that quickly transitioned into a make-out sesh. However, Lacey’s (Nikki Deloach) inopportune walk-in put an end to that. As Luke left, Jenna gave him nice goodbye kisses, but Matty showed up! (Cue the Awkward opening.)
Luke was super nice and lessened the awkward moment by introducing himself to Matty. Matty had concert tickets and was handing them over to Jenna since Jake and Tamara were no longer together. Luke had midterms and said it was cool if Matty and Jenna went together! (Luke is such a doll.)
Jake (Brett Davern) and Tamara (Jillian Rose Reed) weren’t having as easy a time with splitting the concert tickets. Jake was still beyond angry over Tamara’s Catfish scheme. He actually believed “Autumn” had three dingos in the Australian Outback. C’mon Jake!
Jenna apologized for making out with Luke in front of Matty. The hunk quickly retorted, “Well Jenna, it’s not like it was the first time,” referring to her cheating scandal with Collin (Nolan Gerard Funk). (Major burn, Matty.) Matty said he was happy for Jenna and her new guy, but is he really?
Val (Desi Lydic) called Tamara, Jake, Matty and Jenna into her office to discuss Jakara’s problems. Jake and Tamara continued their bickering and Val told them to act more like Matty and Jenna. Jake gave up and handed over his ticket to Tamara. (It seems like Jake and Tamara are protesting a little too much to really hate each other.)
‘Awkward’ Recap: Drama Overload
Jenna told Tamara that seeing Matty move on would make her happy and she wished Matty would bring a girl to the concert. Tamara said that was a bold-faced lie and told her to invite Eva (Elizabeth Whitson). Even though Jenna had doubts, she asked Eva to go to prove Tamara wrong.
So Jenna, Tamara, Matty, Sadie, Austin (Shane Harper) and Eva all headed to the concert together. (This should be fun.)
Eva put on the cool Eva charm, much to Sadie’s dislike. Jenna tried to up the together-ness factor between Eva and Matty, telling them they looked really good together. Matty asked Jenna what was up and told her to stop being weird.
Sadie wanted to get drunk and Eva told them they could stop by a place she knew to get a fake ID. Sadie started to call Eva out on her overlapping stories, but Eva played it cool. At the sketch ID place, Eva held Sadie back to have a chit chat. Eva showed Sadie the picture of Matty and Sadie in bed together. Sadie told Eva she knew nothing happened. “I know, it just kind of looks like something did. What would Austin think?” Eva snapped. Eva told Sadie to hold off on the Sadie-ness or Eva would reveal the photo to Austin.
Eva asked if Jenna invited her to the concert to set her up with Matty. Jenna said she would be totally cool with them getting together and Eva was all over that. Matty and Eva got their flirt on big time. It was also made known that Matty could get part of his “Jenna 4 Eva” tattoo removed to be “4 Eva.” (No. Just no.)
Tamara was concerned that Jake was having too much fun with his new “groupies,” but he was really just watching porn at home. Meanwhile, Jenna started to realize that maybe she still had feelings for Matty. So naturally, Jenna started to try and make Matty jealous.
Tamara had a scary run-in with a guy who wanted to take her phone and Jenna allowed the guy to get away with it. To further ruin the night, Tamara’s car got towed. They forked over the 200 dollars, but the guy still towed the car. Jake saved the night and picked them up, saying he only did it for Matty.
‘Awkward’ Recap: Locked Up
Jenna was no longer happy with the Matty and Eva pairing and Matty knew it. Sadie blamed Eva for the night’s disaster. Eva texted Sadie the picture of Matty with the caption, “Don’t test me, b***h.”
Jenna told Tamara to ease up the crazy on Jake, but Tamara told her to take a look in the mirror.
Sadie showed Austin the picture of her and Matty. She told him about the kiss and said it meant nothing. However, Austin didn’t see it that way. He called her a liar and wanted to break up.
Jenna apologized to Matty for being weird and confessed that Matty dating other people bothered her. However, she gave him her “blessing” to be with Eva. Matty thought it was ridiculous and said they don’t need each other’s blessings. “We’re not together,” he said. Instead of going to the concert, Jake, Eva and Matty got drunk outside. Eva stepped out of the car to make a call and the police coincidentally showed up right after she left. Matty got smart with the cop and Jake and Matty were both arrested!
Tamara, Jenna and Sadie were on their way home when Jenna got a text from Luke: “Buried with midterms, Wish I could be with you :)” Jenna realized she had a good guy with Luke and was (maybe) ready to let Matty go for good. Time will tell!
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of tonight’s Awkward? How dark will Matty go? Will Eva go from being the best to the worst? Are Jake and Tamara really over? Will Jenna be the one to bring Matty back from the brink? Let us know!
