The Plot, The Gay, The Ugly | Faking It 207 Recap – Date Expectations

Welcome to Faking It! The show where all of the high school teens are played by actors well on their way to 30 years old and everyone is either ridiculously attractive, ridiculously clueless or both.

This week on the show, Karma really wants to meet Amy’s new girlfriend meanwhile Shane is trying to out someone (again). Such fun!

As always the recap is split into The Plot, The Gay and The Ugly, so read on to find out went down this week.

The Plot

This week’s episode of Faking It was the best of the season so far! Each with their choice of love interests (Karma and Liam, Shane and his trainer, Lauren and Theo, Amy and Reagan) they’re all pretty much keeping to themselves. Lauren yells Theo into submission to take her on a date, Amy and Reagan have plans of their own, Karma and Liam are sort of getting on with whatever boring things insufferable characters do meanwhile Shane is trying to coax (read: mercilessly yank) his trainer out of the closet via something called a “group hang”.

What the hell is a group hang? Apparently it’s what the cool kids call ‘gathering in medium to large numbers’, aka ‘hanging out’ and Shane thinks that a group hang will give his closeted trainer boyfriend an excuse to meet his friends and maybe tumble out of the closet. Or something.

There’s some resistance from Karma though but after some conniving manipulation he convinces her that she needs to come along to check up on Amy and Reagan to make sure that Reagan isn’t some lesbian witch who wants to have her wicked way with Karma’s best friend. Karma wants to protect Amy but personally, after placing her feelings in Karma I think a wicked lesbian witch would be a massive step up.

And so there we have it! All four couples are at a sharing eatery where you have to share everything you order with one another. That’s disastrous for everyone but Lauren is the first to make the most of it, convincing Shane’s boyfriend to flirt with her to make Theo jealous. Their time at the restaurant ends with them making it so go figure.

The Gay

Everything else that happened though, falls squarely into ‘The Gay’.

It all kicks off when Amy/Reagan and Karma/Liam are sat right next to each other. About as jealous as you can be when you feel as though your best friend is being stolen away from you, Karma flaunts off her knowledge of Amy. From their past field trips at school to her favourite foods (mushrooms), Karma is keen to show that she knows Amy best. And in some respects she does, but Regan, who started off the episode making out with Amy and asking her about her friends has never heard of Karma at all, despite prompting Amy to reveal more that very morning. So, she’s equally as possessive.

So possessive that when she order the kale and encourages Amy to eat it, Amy ends up having an allergic reaction to the peanut oil that the dish is covered in because she was unaware of her allergy. Does Amy pass out? Die? End up in hospital? Well she probably would have wished for either of those outcomes as after Karma stabs her leg with the epipen that she carries round for just these moments Reagan becomes more frustrated, outright asking if Amy is in love with her.

Amy was in love with Karma and she tells Reagan that. Reagan storms out and Amy, hurt that her girlfriend probably wants nothing to do with her, sits looking glum. It’s not until Liam steps up and tells Karma to put a sock in it that she realises she needs to run out and get her girl!

Amy sprints out to the parking lot and begs Reagan not to go; but Karma has followed them out. So Amy does the only thing she can really, she tells Karma off and tells her that she’s making things worse. But! After some heartfelt explaining that yes Karma will always be a part of her life but she wants a future with Reagan, the two girls (literally) kiss and make up.

Across town Shane and his trainer are having a heated debate about Shane’s repeated attempts at getting him to come out. His trainer says he has to stay closeted for his career but that he *might* come out at some point for Shane. Aw!

But then! Star sweep across town once more and Karma and Liam are sat talking about the evening’s events in his car. Liam outright asks “sometimes I wonder if I’m the one you wanna be with” and while I was gasping, yelling and shouting at the screen (all at once, it was very impressive) Karma tried and failed to appeal to Liam who was having none of it. And then! When she got out of the car she started crying!

What a whirlwind.

The Ugly

This would have been the perfect episode of Faking It save for Shane trying to out someone again.

At this point I’m wondering fi the writers even listen to criticism because we’re on what? Our fifth outing/attempted outing at this point? And still it’s a sad trope that keeps happening.

Suggesting that outing is normal and even condoned by people in the LGBTQ+ community is really gross and toxic because people will watch this and fail to realise why outing is wrong. Faking It should be ashamed that it keeps doing this, really.
