But John Paul gets his own surprise about Jake when it turns out that Harry knows him. Uh-oh? Is JP dating another high school student?

Later, noting Ms. St. Claire’s disdain over JP’s dating, both Louis and JP think she’s jealous and interested in him. When John Paul confronts her about it, she gets upset and sends him home. Myra hears about what happened and goes to the school to talk to Ms. St. Claire. When Myra comes back to talk to JP, she advises him to quit his job. But did something happen between Myra and Ms. St. Claire?  Hmm….

Lamenting his messed up life, JP winds up hanging out with Scott and the two of them commiserate over how miserable they are.

Later, Aaron learns that it was his sister Liv who vandalized his car as revenge for her father. Aaron tells Liv all about the rape, but she still has trouble believing it, especially after she confronts Gordon and he denies everything.

About the Author

I watch a lot of television, probably too much. But can you really watch too much TV? I've yet to find out. Anyway, I especially love TV when they give us positive portrayals of gays, something that has gotten better but we're still fighting for. I've written about gays in television for many years first at the much missed After Elton, then New Now Next and now at TV Source. It's kind of a passion of mine and I look forward to sharing it with you.

  1. So yeah, the Tyler/Iolo thing progressed as I had hoped on Friday’s Pobol. Sure was tasty to observe.
