Lily found someone at the dance who liked her and wanted to have sex with her. She set up an elaborate staging of her characters. Unfortunately, her vagina wouldn’t allow him entry. Lily went to Otis for advice. He concluded she was experiencing “vaginismus”, a reaction to fear of penetration. Because Lily wanted to have sex, Otis explained that her fear was of letting go. After they rode their bike down a hill, Lily admitted she wanted to have sex so badly because she feared being left behind.
Maeve admitted to Jackson that she didn’t love him. Jackson knew she had feelings for Otis. Mr. Groff called Maeve and Otis to his office. Speaking with Maeve alone, he suspected she was using Otis as a mule for an on-campus drug ring. Mr. Groff threatened to call the police on Sean, so she said the drugs were from her. A tribunal would determine if she would continue at Moordale. Mr. Groff let Otis off with a warning, although Maeve wouldn’t tell him what happened.
During Maeve’s tribunal, she made her case. They hadn’t made their decision yet, but until then, she was barred from campus. When she was cleaning out her locker, Aimee left with her and dumped the Untouchables. Jackson agreed to compete in the county championship under the condition that Maeve wouldn’t be expelled. He won, but Mr. Groff said he didn’t accept bribes.
