“Awkward” Recap: Season 4 Episode 2 “Listen to This”
Jenna is now a senior and still as awkward as ever. However, we all saw Jenna during the premiere of Season 4 looking all fresh, new and ready to take on the world with a much better attitude and perspective in life. This is such a relief considering how she acted last Season 3.
The beginning of Season 4 Episode 2 “Listen to This” showed Jake singing in front of the camera and filming what looks like a musical video in Matty’s backyard. Seeing this, it is confirmed that Jake is so passionate with his music while Tamara isn’t, so what she did was to focus on Jenna and Matty instead. Jenna relayed the whole thing to her by telling her that everything ended, awkwardly. And it was only a hookup! She got worried about this and asked Jenna if she’s fine with just a hookup and of course, Jenna, being her new self said she’s fine with it even though deep down her feelings for Matty run deeper than just the hookup. However, the new Jenna is focused on other important things until she got whacked in the face with an object and chipped her tooth and caused her a bloody nose. (Oops!)
Alas, her knight in shining armor, Matty came to her rescue and immediately gets the first aid kit until he saw a piece of paper and suddenly his mood has changed, he became sad and a bit angry. What is written on that piece of paper, anyway?
Jenna got surprised by Matty’s change in attitude but she decided to focus on other important things instead. She’s focused on making up for her low class rankings through extracurricular activities. She’s also thinking of peer-counseling for freshman but of course, Valerie is out there to “guide” her and tell her not to do it. However, there are no clubs for Jenna to join, which is why she thinks that peer-counseling is her best option.
Meanwhile, Matty is still brooding. And there was Lissa who is turning out to be a good cheerleading captain. But this irritates Sadie. And because of that, these two gave each other ultimatums. The two went for a game of jealousy. Lissa started it by recruiting someone new to the team named Eva and Sadie saw everything. Later on, she pulls Jenna and yells at her and this ignites Lissa’s jealousy.
Finally, Tamara started to appreciate Jake’s love for music and she realized that he is really a good musician. She told him this, but Jake is actually about to surprise her by breaking up with her.
Sadie, feeling sad about her broken friendship with Lissa decided to apologize and patch things up between them. Everything was fine and we thought that the two will actually make up. But, Sadie uses this new leverage to guilt Lissa into giving up the captain spot.
As for Matty, he is still avoiding Jenna and Jenna finds this to be so annoying because she doesn’t know the reason behind it. Jenna told her mom everything and her mom gave her some good advice, which is to wait it out and let Matty come to her when he’s ready to talk. However, Jenna didn’t follow her mom’s advice and went up to Matty to ask him why he’s avoiding her. Jenna thinks that Matty is avoiding her because he is ashamed of her but Matty denies it until he finally admits what’s been bothering him…
The secret? Matty’s adopted.
See, Jenna, it wasn’t about YOU.
And we feel sorry for Matty!
