MAIN PLOT: KC’s mom returns, and wants him to move in with her.
KC’s mom shows up at his football game unannounced to give him some news: she’s filed papers to regain custody of him.
Not if KC has anything to say about it.
Does anyone else get the feeling that KC is a little paranoid? I mean I get that his mom was a horrendous parent, but as adamant as he is about not letting his mom back into his life (no matter how much she may or may not have changed), him behaving so uneasy makes me feel uneasy. KC’s always on edge, but the fact that he is even more than usual here is what I like about this plot. Get ready to crash and burn.
SUBPLOT 1: Clare has trouble at home, and becomes close with Eli.
Clare is paired up with Eli in class, and it’s a wonderful match from the start. Aislinn and Munro have great onscreen chemistry together. Now while things are starting off slow, but exciting for Clare in the romance department, things aren’t so great at home. Her parents are constantly fighting, which is part of the reason her writing assignments haven’t been up to par lately. That and she’s afraid to truly express herself.
The cure? More Eli.
SUBPLOT 2: Alli plots to make Drew her boyfriend.
Alli likes Drew. Dave likes Alli. Alli asks Dave for guy advice. Dave says throw a party, where he flirts with Alli a lot (because he now thinks she’s interested). But Alli only has eyes for Drew, who has his eyes closed while making out with Alli at the end of this plot.
It’s a good setup for Part 2, when we find out if Alli possibly breaks Dave’s heart while Drew possibly breaks hers.
