  • Nancy's bakery opens, with some slight problems. Celia declares war on the PTA. Nancy learns an expensive lesson during her expansion program and the boys are having father issues during the diversity week

    Breadsticks and Scones opens, Nancy's bakery, opens but does not really start off to well, but Nancy has other issues more pressing, especially after she gets busted with $14,000 worth of stuff whilst on campus, awaiting to pass the stuff onto her employees. Eventually she gets released and she heads off to see her friend/dealer, who kindly explains what has actually happened and this teaches Nancy a streetwise move at the same time as she relays what has happened to Alejandro.

    Shane becomes a semi-arsonists this week, by adding some authenticity to a display, this he does by setting fire to it, using the lighter he stole from his brothers room, which turns out was a lighter than his dad gave to his brother. The lighter is confiscated and lost forever, to the annoyance of Silas, who then hits Shane, as he lost his most sentimental valued item that he had of his dad.

    Celia has obviously declared war on the pta and has been scheming on how to take back control of Chairperson of the PTA, she manages to do this on a technicality, but it demonstrates a far deeper issues, that competition does exist behind the closed gated community in Agrestic and no doubt country wide, the good intentions of people, their beliefs actually outweigh the gain of their actions, this was hinted at in the first episode when Nancy had done alot of research into soda drinks etc, only to have her findings overuled!!!
