If his season only has eight episodes, it's almost over *sad* I hope Rue and Jules will be okay. I cared about Kat at the beginning of the season but since she wants to act like a b*tch towards Ethan for no reason, I don't give a damn about her anymore. I wonder what disgusting and psychotic thing Nate will do next.

I really liked this episode.

The backstory on Mckay was good. One minute I like Mckay/Cassie together then i'm like why are they together. lol Glad Cassie didn't sleep with that guy. but she's probably pregnant now for Mckay.

I loved Rue she's best each episode! Liked how she went made up with Fez. I was proud of her to now relapse with all the drinking/drugs going on at that party. She's really come a long way. Then dealing with Jules couldn't have been easy, so glad she didn't leave her there. a lot of these relationships on the show would work so smoothly if they communicated with each other.

The more scenes Rue/Lexi get I ship them. they were my favorite part of the episode. from them threatening the twin. to Lexi comforting Rue. I hope the continue to build them up.

Ugh Nate and Maddie annoyed me this episode mainly Maddie. She's being really stupid.

I liked this episode, way better than last week's. I just don't care for McKay and Cassie. I don't like the way he treats her and talks to her. I've been loving Rue too, she has been better and better since being sober. I loved how Rue shut that one twin down when it came to her sister lol. This episode and the last, I'm hot and cold with Jules. I still like her and Rue together but she was annoying this episode. I hope Rue exposes Nate somehow, she knows the way Jules is acting has something to do with Nate. I fking hate Nate and his beard Maddy. I knew Nate was going to pin choking Maddy on that guy he nearly killed weeks ago. He is such a damn coward, and Maddy is just as disgusting and screwed up as he is. I also can't stand how EASILY Jules and Tyler just LET Nate order them around. If they spoke up, Nate would be in worse shape than them. There are only two episodes left, it better not end with Nate and Maddy getting away with everything.

yikes, all the feels


I'm very proud of Rue too. she's doing very well despite Jules being so cold with her lately. I was really scared she'd relapse but she held her ground it also must help that Lexi's on her side. I'm really glad she's got her. I don't want them romantically involved but I'm loving this friendship. Lexi is such a good person, she didn't let McKay find out about her sister either, it was really cool.



the way Rue dealt with the guy hanging around Gia was DOPE she handled it so well



I'm not surprised Jules has hit the bottom. what Nate's making her do...I just need him to go down so bad. Rue is definitely sensing something now every time Nate enters the room she knows something is up with Jules so I hope she confronts her about it now. I was thinking, it might be dumb, but couldn't Rue and Jules play this whole thing with the photos like they were just sending those to each other? like they were roleplaying or something and somehow the pics got out but it was just a mistake? Idk but there's gotta be a way around it I don't think there's anything Jules could do alone so she has to open up and this has to end once and for all. I know she's really scared cause there's so much at stake but there's gotta be something they can do.


the whole McKay/Cassie SL is confusing to me. he's probably getting too much pressure from his dad but he should just stay away from Cass now if he's gonna act like this

That's what I'm saying, their not even attempting to challenge Nate or call his bluff. They are just like "okay!" and do what Nate says without a fight. I feel like with all the sick things and crimes Nate has done, he would go down harder than anyone.

I’m really surprised/disappointed we aren’t seeing Jules put up a fight against Nate. Especially after we saw how she handled Nate in the first episode. Yeah it seems like Rue is gonna have to step in and help.

I think she's just really scared at this point and obviously doesn't wanna bring Rue into it but she has to realize soon that this can't go on forever and has to fill Rue in and team up with her to take him down unless Rue even figures the whole thing out even before that

I have a bad feeling that they raped McKay. A few people were discussing it with me and based on how he was crying and how he treated Cassie afterwards, it felt like some sort of knee-jerk response to something bad. They definitely shouldn't be together. He treats her badly and then she goes and cheats on him. I do think she's a skank, though. That guy had no right to be so sick and vile to her, but she herself is a skank.

Lexi was the only good thing about this episode for me. I liked Rue too, but most of her scenes were with Lexi. She's an amazing person and looks out for those she cares for.

I think Tyler was just afraid of Nate killing him. Jules is in more of a position to fight back, but I get why she won't. If I were in her shoes,I'd be terrified. I think she's just felt like her back is against the wall since he revealed himself. His creepy need to follow her around is disturbing.

I hate Kat more and more with each episode. The one guy who isn't a vile piece of crap needs to get rejected for being a virgin, even though she was until the first episode. I'm pretty sure that jerky guy is his brother, which is just up. I don't feel sorry for her in the least bit.

I've never liked Maddie and she's evil for lying about blacking out and saying that poor bastard raped her. Thank god the cops don't believe it and put pressure on Jules to be honest.

I'm glad Rue and Fez made up. She had two people looking out for her. I hope she does make Jules tell her what's wrong. It was really disrespectful to get drunk around Rue.

Yeah! I miss that Jules. She wasn't scared or intimidated by Nate, and HE was the one scared and whimpering when she pulled the knife out on him and cut herself lol. I'm glad the cops knew they were all full of crap. I mean come on, overnight their all saying Tyler choked Maddie? It's a bunch of bs, I hope the cops expose them. I said I can't stand Kat anymore either, and I hate that Ethan went down to her s...ty level. He's better than that. I also couldn't believe she said she doesn't mess with virgins. B*tch you were a virgin five minutes ago, get TF over yourself.

I've heard some say McKay was raped and some said he wasn't. He didn't look like he was raped to me, just humiliated cause they were dry humping him? But his reaction afterwards was like he was raped. I'm confused by what happened. I also hated how he took it out on Cassie sexually afterwards. I said too that I can't stand them together anymore. I thought they had potential but their toxic like most of the other couples. I agree she is a skank and McKay, he's just a wishy washy coward. They just don't compliment each other at all.

Jules had nothing to be afraid of back then but now Nate could ruin her whole life so I think it makes sense she's acting strange and doing all these destructive things to herself.



also I've read a theory about the way the pool scene paralleled the Romeo and Juliet film, that Nate might not know that Rue and Jules are a thing now and Jules didn't want him to find out cause it'd endanger her too so she doesn't really wanna make out with Rue in public and that's why they did it under water in secret, which again makes a lot of sense in retrospect. so she's trying to protect her any way she can, and if this behavior drives her away it'd be better for her. while she doesn't wanna break Rue's heart, she thinks she's safer without her for now.


anyway obviously it failed because Rue's not gonna leave her. she's become stronger and she is going to figure out what's going on

I don't think they rapped Mckay. just one of those humiliating, hazing things that goes on in college just so happen to be in front of Cassie.

You're right Jo, Jules does have more to lose now with those pics an all but If we learned one thing is that if you push back against Nate. He isn't as cocky/intimidating.

I agree I hate that Ethan lower his standards to do that with Kat. I'm glad he tried to ask her what happened with her at the fair why she left. but Kat is acting real stupid right now.

I didn't think he was raped either, so I was surprised when people started saying he was. As graphic as this show is, I'm sure they would of made it very obvious if he was raped. As for Jules, of course I realize she has more to lose. My point is Jules and Tyler are making it SO EASY for Nate to get what he wants without either of them putting up a fight at all! He doesn't even have to try, they just instantly obey him. I agree that once people push against him like Jules did in the first episode, he shows his bark is worse than his bite. Just like when he was damning Maddy to hell at the carnival, saying she is dead to him, and choking her. Then as soon as she brings up all the d..ks on his phone, he turns into a whimpering baby BEGGING her not to say anything. Now their this disgusting "united" couple again cause she has a little dirt on him. See what I mean, He's a b*tch when someone calls his bluff. If they didn't bend to his will and HE is in the hot seat, I can easily see him breaking like he did those other times. Nate has way more to lose for all the things he's done than them, and their just easily letting him win. He can just go to them to clean up his psychotic messes whenever he wants, they should want to be free of that as well.

yeah, it didn't look like they raped him I'm sure it was very uncomfortable but I didn't see any indications of that.



Idk about Tyler since we don't know anything about his character really, but I think Jules is very used to going it alone whichever obstacle has come before and this time it's definitely not gonna work. so she's kinda lost at this point but once Rue is involved in the whole thing they can totally start making a plan to take that scumbag down
