Last time Morgan and Marti’s laptops were stolen after they started sniffing around to help spring a prisoner out of jail. Savannah found out that Marti and Dan lost their virginity to each other and abandoned her own plans to give her virginity to Dan. Alice got under the skin of the athletic administrator when she usurped the football team’s PR interview for one on the Hellcats.
Savannah was passive-aggressively punishing Marti at practice because of what happened with Dan. Even Alice noticed something off. So Marti confronted S and S laid (Ha) into her about the whole Dan sitch and how Marti lied to her. Alice and Lewis walked in and Lewis also got mad at Marti for not letting him know that she had a past with Dan. So Savannah packed up and stayed at her parents for a while. Meanwhile Dan couldn’t get a hold of Savannah so he went over to her parents’ house but mommy dearest wouldn’t let him in. Savannah bonded with her sister Charlotte and confessed to why she was there. Charlotte told S that it was good she didn’t do it because she did and she was pregnant! Savannah promised not to tell anyone but told Char that she couldn’t cheer in her condition. So Savannah went in her place when the Memphis Christian squad had to put on an exhibition for a German investor. When mom tried to get S to spill what was wrong with Char, S just said that Char was worried about her back and cheering since that was her life. OMG Savannah lied!
Meanwhile Marti and law student pal Morgan decided to do more undercover work with the prisoner. They saw that their prof had come to see the prisoner before them so had to try to keep their activities more on the down low. Their new plan was to talk to the only witness, a pharmacist, who had given two testimonies, only the first account had mysteriously disappeared. They talked to the pharmacist but didn’t get anything out of him so decided to stake him out to see who he would talk to. Marti had the night shift and invited Dan. Marti borrowed mom Wanda’s Buick – the same car they had lost their virginity to each other in when they were 16. We found out that after they did it, Dan dissed Marti for six months. Then after that they had never talked about it but had been bffs. So in the car they drank Wanda’s whiskey and rehashed the scene. Basically the condom had broken and Dan was scared. Marti was scared and confused too but she had no one to share it with. She had even gotten her period three weeks later but Dan didn’t know that since he was ignoring her. Then they started making out. But suddenly the pharmacist came out and met with the furniture guy from last time. The furniture guy was the one who gave the homeless ex-gf a place to live. Dan got it all on video but Marti couldn’t find the car keys so they couldn’t tail them.
Back at the cheerleading house Marti told Dan that nothing happened with them because Savannah was her best friend and couldn’t hurt her. Dan looked like he wanted to be with Marti still but she shut him down. Then Savannah came back and forgave Marti because of the white lie she had to tell her mom about her sister. Savannah told Marti that she knew that Marti didn’t tell her the truth to protect her feelings and appreciated it. S then went off with Dan. Lewis showed up and Marti looked longingly after Dan going off with Savannah.
The head of football decided to punish the Hellcats because of Alice’s take over of the article. So he told Vanessa that he was giving their cheer space to some other sports team. Then he blackmailed Red Raymond to back him up when he recruited players with the pay-per-play scam in order to give Vanessa back the cheer space. Red did it begrudgingly for Vanessa.
