  • This would be the "sex-talk" episode of the series.

    Poor Tim, he has his father in his life again and he ends up falling off the wagon. He's drinking. His dad steals a camera and he defends him to Coach Taylor only to find out later that his dad really did steal it. After asking his father to leave he tries to prove that he doesn't need his father to protect him and shows up at the pool hall to fight his own battles and gets beat up pretty badly. Tyra's mom and Buddy had an affair, as predicted and he fires her. She was more upset about losing the job then anything else and embarrasses him in front of everyone at church. (the clips for next week's episode look great) Jason is in Austin and he meets a new girl and he's about to get a tattoo (I'm sure he'll have fun explaining that to Lyla). BUT the episode was really about Matt and Julie. Julie's is willing to have sex but she's emotionless and very nonchalant about it, while Matt is nervous and emotional about it. Tyra of all people tells Julie that she doesn't have to do it if she doesn't want to but Julie is determined because she doesn't understand what the big deal is. Julie's mom freaks out but still handles herself well, Coach Taylor just gets upset like any father would but he is pushed into the background as Tami and Julie basically deal with the situation. In the end they do not have sex. It is a mutual decision to wait and it ends with Matt and Julie confessing their love for each other.
