  • Child abuse and teen sex issues.

    Well other than this episode being caked with drama, it was a really great episode, that had a lot of development. At first you think it's going to be about sex and your "first time". Since Shawn had Claire Ferguson spend the night at his house. Cory assumes their having sex, so he tries to have sex with Topanga. She gets upset, and leaves. As the episode continues, Cory finds out that Claire & Shawn weren't having sex. She had to stay at his house because her father was abusing her. Shawn doesn't want to go to the police throughout the whole episode. Until the end, when they get consolation from Cory's parents. I liked the Eric & Cory conversation. Really brotherly. In the end, it's happily ever after for Claire, since she escapes her father. Even though it takes longer to escape from that than it did in this episode, it was still good. Cory says he is fine not having sex yet. Topanga agrees to go to second base. It summed up pretty well. Good episode.
