For the episode's transcript, see here.


As the semester kicks off, Jules questions Rue and Elliot's new friendship. While Cal hunts for answers, Nate makes a tough decision. The lines between fantasy and reality begin to blur as Kat ponders her relationship, and Maddy contemplates the decision to end hers.



Nate recovers from his beating in the hospital and refuses to name his attacker to his father. He finds himself falling in love with Cassie, who has undergone a depressive episode since her abortion and feels inexperienced at being single. Cassie continues seeing Nate despite the guilt she feels at betraying Maddy, who is still in love with Nate. Jules becomes insecure about Rue's relationship with Elliot, unaware that the two have been frequently taking drugs together. Kat begins losing interest in Ethan. Cal begins investigating Nate's assault and pressures Cassie into naming Fez as the perpetrator; he and Fez have a tense standoff at Milk, which Lexi witnesses. Cal then confronts Nate, who reveals that he is aware of Cal's secret sexual exploits and the recording of him having sex with Jules.
