“Faking It” Season 1 Episode 3 “We Shall Overcompensate” Recap:

“We Shall Overcompensate” didn’t really revolve around the generous but suspicious donation, because what was important was underneath all that and in reality, this episode showed a few acts of desperation. There was Karma who is still so desperate to get Liam just to get back at him and there was Amy who’s so desperate to fight her feelings for Karma.

It all started when the two best friends were talking about everything including their fake romance when Karma, unexpectedly, steals a kiss, which is such a big surprise to Amy. The deed was only done because Karma wanted Amy to take a picture of them with their lips locked and upload it on Instagram. It’s like they want to validate more what’s already validated and there’s nothing more validating than that than posting it on social media.

Since Karma has a boyfriend, Amy considers getting one for herself as well because she thinks that this might make her forget her feelings for Karma and her sexuality as well.

Now, let’s go back to Karma’s attempts to woo Liam. She decided to use the protest to impress Liam by chaining herself to the school doors. Liam asks her to move so his friends can bring in the pastries that have been donated by the local vegan bakery, but Karma didn’t move. She just announced a hunger strike. However, Liam is unmoved and can’t see through Karma.

Karma has been working on a song for Liam to express her feelings. We know that Karma is so shy when it comes to sharing her music and it is only Amy who gets to hear her songs. This time, though, out of desperation, she takes the stage and sings her song so Liam can hear it and maybe get a clue on how she feels about him.

Meanwhile, Amy is on the search for a secret boyfriend, not only to forget her feelings for her best friend but also to test her sexuality. So she met Oliver, and both of them have a lot of things common. Amy and Karma fought –again and this made Amy grab Oliver who really has a crush on her despite the fact that she’s a “lesbian” and kissed him passionately by the lockers. Only after that, we all saw the disappointment on Amy’s face, which confirms her sexuality.

Amy is upset about everything so, when Shane dropped by her place to tell her some bad news that he thinks that there’s something going on between Karma and Liam, and that he thinks Karma is bisexual and might be cheating on her, she confesses to Shane that everything is just a fake. But, she’s really not faking her feelings for it. This is the first time that Amy admitted her sexuality to anyone and this is also the first time that she’s going against Karma’s interests.. It looks like Shane is going to help her…
