Finally, this show has returned! I love that ABC Family runs this show in the fall season but begins it just earlier than all the other shows so that they get a jump on the audience.
The Day After The End Of The World:
Rusty awakens in the arms of Jordan. They wonder if Cappie and Casey are dating. She suggests they do something fun but he has to get to the lab to finish some work.
Back at ZBZ, Casey tries to keep Ashley from her room because it’s a gross mess because she was upset. But today she’s great! It’s a new day. No dwelling, no pity. Ashley told him that Casey and Max broke up. What did he say? Well, he’s probably still thinking about it. Casey is going to remain positive and think about other things. The ZBZ girls come in singing with a cat. It’s supposed to be a show of support. I dunno. Gotcha (also known as Assassin) begins, hosted by Omega Chi. Ahsley gets Cappie so she and Casey trade. Rebecca is super hungover. She was making out with a guy the night before. (Well, definitely over the gay thing then.)
The lab is locked.
Calvin wakes up feeling terrible. He’s asleep on Dale’s couch. Calvin kissed the guy he wasn’t supposed to, but they didn’t do anything else. But, Dale kissed the landlady. Or Calvin did sleep with him since he’s still at the apartment.
Rusty is looking for Max. But Max is gone, he quit the program and left a box for Casey. Rusty returns to his and Dale’s apartment. Rusty got a D on his midterm and figures out that his average will be a low C (because he can’t finish his project since the lab is locked) which will kick him out of the honors program.
Rusty delivers the box to Casey. Rusty’s upset because Max was his friend and inspired him academically. Casey apologizes but he’s not soothed.
Kappa Tau practices shooting for the assassin game. He’s angry at Cappie. Spitter shoots the guy as an old woman and is disqualified but Cappie comes to his defense. He could have been a serial killer dressed as an old woman.
Calvin doesn’t remember the night before but he pretends he does. The guy (Grant) teases him. Oh, they didn’t do anything more than kiss. At a KT party, which is bad. Evan comes in and they pretend they weren’t together.
Jordan comes to talk to her about Rusty. Rusty might get kicked out of the program…Casey realizes she has to help even though there’s a party.
Ashley and Rebecca dicuss who to be. Ashley will be Mrs. Smith. Rebecca will be Sydney Bristow. She still won’t tell who she made out with. Evan’s bank account is empty because he gave up his trust fund. Rebecca is shocked (are you an idiot!). She offers to help him out. She’ll lend him money and he’ll do her a favor. (Pretend to be her boyfriend?)
Casey comes to Rusty’s room. She intends to help him. She can get him into the building even she can’t help him with the science. She got the security guard to come and they pretend Rusty is sick so that she can swipe the guard’s keys. The only catch there are like a billion keys.
Dale comes to Cappie. Cappie asks why Rusty’s so moody. Cappie learns that Max left town and Rusty’s failing. But Dale never gets a chance to talk because Cappie runs out.
Rebecca receives flowers (from Evan). It’s an obvious cover but no one notices.
Calvin raids Dale’s closet for Austin Powers clothes. Calvin says he will be seeing Grant but they’ll keep it secret. Dale reveals that he had sex with Sheila. He’s freaking out and he regrets it.
Inside the building, Casey is still working on keys. Casey asks what happened to Rusty’s grades. He got distracted. He must really like Jordan. (They haven’t had sex yet.) With her he doesn’t feel like he has to obsess with his grades. She says he can have both. Casey says she realized she and Max were too different. She’s bummed because Max is such a good guy. Cappie barges out of the door in full ninja garb because he climbed in through the open window.
At the Assassin party Rebecca wants him to pretend they’re into each other. He agrees. Calvin and Grant hang out at the party. Grant wants to have sex. Calvin wants to slow down and get to know each other. Rebecca and Evan hang out at the party and he asks who she made out with. Rebecca slaps Evan and yells at him, pretending that he was a jerk so that everyone can hear her break up with him.
Back at the lab, Casey and Cappie makes awkward talk in front of Rusty. Rusty doesn’t let Cappie help until Casey says more hands could help. Until Cappie breaks the tubes…Rusty starts over again with only Casey helping. Rusty tells Cappie that he’s a jerk for hitting on Casey while she and Max were still together but she says it was her who talked to him and not vice versa. An alarm goes off because they forgot to turn off the gas. They have to run out of the building. As they run out there’s security coming so they have to take a detour. Cappie tells them to go back to the lab while he pretends to be protesting animal testing.
Calvin tells Dale that he and Grant decide to hold off on sex. Dale says he’s come to terms with his relationship with Sheila. She shows up and he proposes to her. Her response: “That is so sweet…but I’m busy with work…and there’s my cat…” Ouch.
Rusty gets a C on his extra credit, keeping him in the program. Rusty tells Jordan he can’t keep blowing things off.
Casey and Ashley wonder why she and Evan would keep their relationship secret. They see Cappie cleaning up garbage as punishment for breaking into the lab. Casey goes up to talk to him and thank him. As always, Cappie is about to say he does like her until she interrupts him and says she gets that he doesn’t like her. Seriously, girls need to stop talking in movies. (She does shoot him to get him out of the game though.)
Back To The End Of The World:
Cappie decides he needs to find Casey. Evan finds him and says he and Cappie were never good for Casey. Evan basically says she and Max just broke up. Evan says he obviously doesn’t intend to graduate and have a future while Casey has her life planned out. He asks if he wants to go through losing her a second time. If he wakes up and feels the same tomorrow then go for it.
Rebecca is making out with someone. I think it’s supposed to be Ashley’s boyfriend but I can’t tell/don’t really remember what he looks like since he hasn’t been in the entire episode (poor writing on the writer’s part he’s a relatively new character and the show is just starting up again!).
