  • Diana's 16 and the girls throw her a sleepover party. Kathleen brings drugs,and the effects backfire against her when Melanie tells secrets. Alex does homework all weekend, freeing up Arthur to play poker with Yick and Luke, and Joey comes too.

    Ok, first of all it appears that Diana's brother George is giving her more freedom to actually allow this. Kathleen's bringing drugs, and then saying she did drugs with Scott; well, they never showed that. It's funny that they were hid in the girls' room by boys. But it also shows the real reasons why drugs can be bad; that they break down your defenses and judgment, as shown by Melanie revealing Kathleen's secrets throughout the whole series. And how it does different things to different people; Diane "not feeling anything", and Maya just coughs. As for Caitlin, she says her brother is married, and she's living with them. And he's younger than 20? Well, either he's her half-brother from one of her parents' pasts, or they were pregnant with him when they got married, and he got married awfully young too. But can afford a place with a second bedroom for Caitlin? Interesting. The poker game was fun. Especially how Luke only lets Arthur come because he's rich and probably doesn't know how to play. Why is Alex then allowed to play? I thought he was a nerd too. But that was funny how Arthur fooled them, and then became one of them. The talk about girls was revealing; how Joey is still bitter over Caitlin, Arthur still likes her, and I can't remember which one liked Maya; if only she wasn't in a wheelchair. And Joey showing his struggles with Wheels as a roommate. They never do show if Melanie and Kathleen are ever friends again. But obviously Kathleen is sorry she brought marijuana, or sorry she was friends with Melanie, and nothing is said about it again. That last scene was sad.
