Episode Summary

EDIT
Burn, Baby, Burn
AIRED:

Sophie uses the camera to expose her mother's boyfriend as a loser. Instead she exposes her own frailties. Sophie can't bring herself to like her mother's boyfriend, Glenn. No matter how hard he tries Glenn can't do a thing right and Sophie won't give him an even break. Life at home is difficult for Ruth, too. When her mother goes on a diet she is forced to join in even though she doesn't need to lose any weight. Sophie's mother has a new boyfriend – Glenn. He is trying hard to get Sophie to like him, but she won't give him an even break. Her mother is keen for them to get on. Sophie sees Glenn as a threat and believes he is going to try and take her mother away from her. Ruth's mother comes to school to lecture the students on healthy living – all part of her new obsession with health and weight. Mrs Hartnell is going on a diet and insists that Ruth join her – even though Ruth doesn't need to lose any weight. Mr Long's suggestion that the video camera can be used like a diary to expose your inner thoughts prompts Sophie into using the camera to expose Glenn. She plans to show her mother what a loser her boyfriend is through the camera lens. Sophie can't believe how easy it is until Glenn takes the camera and turns the lens on her. Glenn doesn't want to break up her family – he just wants to get on with her. The diet is getting to Ruth. She is feint from hunger and collapses in class, landing on Kurt – much to his annoyance and her embarrassment. Her mother finally sees sense and the diet ends. But she has an announcement – Mrs Hartnell is pregnant!
