Scott Taylor is a Senior (Grade 12) at Clearwater High School and one of the original thirteen characters, regarded as the most developed male character on the series. He is extremely selfless and constantly puts other people's feelings and wants over his own which has led him to become extremely unhappy over the course of the show since so many people take advantage of this. After dating a girl, he realizes he is gay, facing backlash from many people because of it, including his parents. Both his unwillingness to do something for himself and his look for love are ongoing storylines in his character's plotline. He is well-liked by mostly everyone due to his caring and kind nature.
In the second season, he falls deeply in love with new kid Dex Smith, but he is soon taken by his best friend, Eliza, causing a very awkward love triangle that lasts until Dex dumps her in the fourth season. After starting a short flirtatious relationship with sworn enemy, Keith, it ends badly when Scott refuses to tell his parents about them and Keith does it for him, causing Scott to be kicked out. He lives with Angel for a short period until she blames her drugs on him and gets him kicked out as well. He ends up sleeping on a bench until faking a relationship with Hank Pistol to have a place to stay. Finally, Dex acknowledges his feelings for Scott after long suspicions, but Scott ends up turning him down to save getting hurt again, but they soon reconnect and get together.
Scott is happy for a short period of time while in a committed relationship with Dex, but following being shot and held hostage in shooting and Dex's mental deterioration and depression diagnosis, Dex leaves town and breaks up with Scott. This leads to Scott being very unhappy again and running into serious financial problems.

When Brittany tells him that not that many people hate him, he doesn't believe her and also doesn't believe her when Brittany says he won't have trouble making new friends now that they're at high school. He tells her that he had a solid clique in middle school, but now only has a couple of people left who talk to him. Brittany promises that she and Olivia won't leave him and he says that he hope's they don't. At lunch, he finds Brittany and sits with her, saying he still hasn't talked to anyone new and Brittany tells him it takes time.

When Dex leaves following the fight, Scott follows him to make sure he's okay.

At lunch, he tells his friends about Sadie getting a boyfriend and they are all shocked as well. Scott brings up again how pathetic it is that she's had a boyfriend and he hasn't and Angel tells him not to be one of those people who feel like they need to be in a relationship to be happy. He tells her he doesn't think that, but it'd just be nice to experience one. Dex then tells him that he can't rush relationships and he jokes back that he's had 2 girlfriends in six months, making everyone laugh and Dex to playfully push him. Dex then lays his head on Scott's shoulder and tells him that he'll be his boyfriend and Scott brushes him off and looks at Angel who gives him a look. He then tells them all how he's hanging out with them later and isn't looking forward to it.
At Tim's apartment later that day, Sadie suddenly thanks Scott for being okay with her dating Tim. When Scott is confused about why he wouldn't be, Sadie reminds him that he used to like Tim and "got everyone to hate Sophie when she kissed him," causing Scott to point out it didn't happen like that. Tim then tells Scott it's okay if he likes him, and Scott says he doesn't. Clearly embarrassed that Sadie would bring that up since it was so long ago, this causes Scott to be even more agitated with Sadie than he was before. When Scott is leaving with Tim, Sadie tells Scott not to steal her boyfriend on the way and Scott rolls his eyes, which Tim sees. He asks what's wrong and Scott tells him that he wished Sadie bring up the fact that he used to like him, making it clear he doesn't anymore. Tim tells Scott that he knows and apologizes for Sadie's "in your face" actions about their relationship, blaming it on her excitement to finally not be single, which Tim points out Scott knows a lot about. Finally reaching his limit, Scott makes up a lie about Sadie telling Tori how happy she is that she finally reeled Tim in and that it was a game for her to get him. This shocks Tim and Scott lies more by saying she used to tell him last year that Tim would give in and date her eventually. Tim then drops Scott off, upset that getting with him was all a game to her. After Tim leaves, Scott asks himself when he turned into the guy who breaks up relationships and feels guilty.
The next day, Sadie is venting to Caylee and Scott about her breakup after Tim dumps her following his talk with Scott. When Sadie goes to the bathroom, Scott tells Caylee he made up lies about Sadie to break them up because he was annoyed and jealous of her rubbing their relationship in his face. Caylee is shocked and tells him that he'd better hope she doesn't find out. Scott agrees and says how bad he feels, but that she can never find out.
In Wonderwall (1), he is in Scott's room looking amazed at all the drawings he's done and watching him draw something. Dex says that anyone can draw and Scott corrects him and says that he can barely draw a stick figure. Dex tells Scott to try it and Scott takes his drawing seat, but doesn't know what he's doing. Dex then takes Scott's hand and tries to help him draw something, but it turns out awful. Scott says he'll find his thing eventually and Dex goes looking for a movie they can watch as Scott puts the drawing they drew in his pocket.
The next day, he is blowing up balloons for Dex's birthday party with Jamie and Moon discussing what they got him. Scott reveals he's giving him an art project he made that Dex knows he spent a lot of time and effort on. Jamie points out that he's giving him one of his most valuable possessions and Moon shouts out that he's in love. Scott tells them that the feelings he has for him are gone and that he just wants to be his best friend now, but Jamie says things can change. Scott tells them that he's dating one of his best friends and he's not breaking them up, even adding in that Dex is straight, which both girls doubt. He is later getting ready for the party at his house with Dex and tells Dex he looks amazing in the shirt he picked out for him. Dex comments that this is the reason he has a gay best friend and is about to start heading out, but Scott stops him and tells him that he wants to give him his present before the party starts and it gets crazy. He then gives the backstory on the gift as Dex opens it, mentioning that he didn't want to get him something stupid, but something meaningful and hopes Dex doesn't think it's stupid. Dex tells him that he loves it because he loves personal gifts so much more. He then hugs Scott and lifts him into the air, spinning him around. Scott tells Dex not to hurt him, and Dex promises he won't as he puts him down and kisses him on the head. Dex then starts heading out to the party, but Scott can barely walk from the shock of the kiss. At the party, he looks disappointed when he sees Dex and Eliza sharing a romantic moment. When Eric comes with alcohol, Moon says that Scott won't drink since he's a goody two shoes, which makes Dex disappointed, so Scott takes a chug right from the bottle to prove Moon wrong. Everyone starts drinking as Scott looks nervous about what he's doing.
Later that night, Eric mentions that he can't drive now and Scott offers for him to crash there that night. He then tells Brad to stay too and asks Scott if he wants to, which Scott stutters that he would. Scott goes to the bathroom to get an aspirin for the headache he's getting and Moon follows and tells him that he's in love with Dex, which he denies again, handing the bottle of pills to Moon to open. She opens it and tells him that he needs to stop lying to himself and just accept that he's in love with his best friend who is dating his other best friend after he set them up because it's okay. She then leaves and Scott starts pondering how he's really feeling. Later, Dex walks in on Scott cleaning the kitchen. Scott says that Dex shouldn't have to clean up at his own party and Dex tells him that he's too good to him. Scott then asks if Dex is sure he's okay with Scott sleeping over and Dex asks Scott if he's slept over a guy's house since coming out, which Scott says he hasn't. Dex says he can have a gay guy spend the night if he wants since it's his party, but makes sure Scott knows that he doesn't see him as his gay best friend, but just his best friend. He then corrects himself and says Scott is his brother, and Scott agrees hesitantly. He then tells Scott he loves him and hugs him as Scott looks ecstatic about the hug and tells Dex he loves him back. Dex gets back to the party and Jamie walks in. Scott spills that he is in love with Scott to Jamie and she tells him it was bound to happen eventually, but that it's going to be hard to spend the night with him now. That night, he is on the air mattress with Dex and watching him sleep as he tells himself that he has to get over how feelings because he can't have him, which is breaking his heart.
In Wonderwall (2), Scott is leaving Dex's house the next morning as his father picks him up and gives Dex a hug goodbye. When he gets in his father's car, he gets a text from Danielle talking about how he's in love with someone, which his father sees and asks him about. Scott tries to say Danielle heard something wrong, but his father doesn't buy it and asks if he's in love with a girl, so Scott appeases him and says he is. At the Hub later that day, he barely touches his food and Brittany comments how weird it is seeing him in love. He comments how Dex is all he thinks about, but knows he has a girlfriend and to stay away. Brittany, however, tells him that maybe Dex would go for him if he realizes he can do better than Eliza and might even be bisexual. She convinces Scott to take a chance or he'll regret it forever.
Scott then goes to Eliza's house and tells her that Dex is seeing someone other than her. When she starts freaking out, thinking he's cheating on her, Scott stops himself and tells himself he can't do it, meaning breaking up Dex and Eliza. Eliza asks him to fess up about what's going on, but he doesn't want to admit what he was trying to do, making Eliza think Scott is covering for Dex. She bolts out of the house before Scott can explain, leading him into even bigger problems. He gets home and tries to call Dex to explain, but Dex comes to his house before he can. Dex asks what's wrong with him and why he would try to break them up and Scott can't form a sentence to explain himself. Dex gives up and leaves, furious with Scott. Scott then starts to cry and calls Moon over for help. At the Hub, they discuss what's going on and Moon is shocked that Scott would do something like that, mentioning he wasn't like this last year. She tells him he's acting like Sophie now by ruining everyone's relationship out of jealousy and he needs to let other people be happy. She tells him that people are having legitimate issues while he's pouting over a boy not liking him and tells him to grow up before leaving him there. Leah approaches a very distraught Scott and offers him a joint. Scott refuses it and tells her he's not going to turn into Sophie and do drugs every time something goes wrong. he then sets off to make things right.
He goes to Dex's house who still isn't happy with him and explains that he only did what he did because Dex deserves better than Eliza. He apologizes and tells Dex he understands if he doesn't want to be friends anymore. Dex then tells him they're brothers, not friends and hugs him, letting him know that he forgives him, but that he can look out for himself. Scott is thrilled and they hang out together, much to Scott's chagrin.
In Ray of Light, Scott is with Brittany and overhears that Olivia's mom is coming into the school for conferences. Scott suggests she ask her dad to come instead, but she tells him that he works.

He then mention that he can't stand seeing her hurt like this anymore and everyone agrees.
In Stubborn Love, he goes up to Dex at his locker and reminds him that they were supposed to hang out that weekend, which Dex forgot. Dex tells him that Eliza has been super clingy and he had to be there for her, but Scott reminds him that he has friends too and not just a girlfriend, obviously jealous that Eliza has been taking all of Dex's time. Dex tells Scott that he thinks something is wrong with Eliza and Scott agrees that she's been distant. Dex promises Scott they'll hang out later that day and apologizes for neglecting him, but Scott says he understands and leaves. At lunch, Angel and Scott notice Dex looks like he got punched, but he tells them he just hit himself with his locker on accident. When Angel points out his wound is bleeding, he runs to the bathroom to clean it and Scott and Angel both talk about the possibility of Eliza hitting him, which they don't find far-fetched. Scott says he might be lying about it because it might be humiliating for him to say his girlfriend hit him. Scott then makes it his mission to figure out what happened.
At Dex's house that day, Scott notices a bruise on Dex's arm and touches it, realizing what is happening. Dex tells him he fell down the stairs, but Scott doesn't buy it for a second and tells him that. Scott puts his hand on Dex's shoulder who then breaks down in tears and confesses that Eliza is the one hurting him and he's scared of her. Scott tells Dex he's not pathetic and that he needs to leave her. Dex then says that he still loves her and doesn't know why, but is also scared she might kill herself like Sophie tried to do when he dumped her. Dex then starts to sob and holds tightly onto Scott who hugs him and tries to comfort him, saying he's sorry and that she couldn't find anyone better than him because he's one of the best people he's ever met. Dex looks at him and Scott tells him he's perfect. Dex then suddenly kisses Scott, who is completely taken aback. Dex immediately apologizes and says he's messed up and didn't mean to kiss him, but thanks him for staying. Scott tells him he's not going anywhere and Dex asks him not to tell anyone that Eliza hit him because sh'ed be furious, which Scott agrees to. They then exchange I love you's and a hug and Dex goes to the bathroom as Scott cries, still shocked and confused by the kiss.

Olivia tries to chase after her and fight her for doing that, but Scott stops her and tells her that he deserves what she did to him. Tori then comes and gives Scott paper towels as they discuss how unstable Sadie is.
In Dark Horse (2), Scott tries to make things better with Sadie and explain himself again, but she doesn't want to give him the time of day. He says that if Tim left her that easily just because of something he said, it's probably good they didn't get serious anyway, but this only angers Sadie more (who is also high on meds) and she tells him that he's pathetic and couldn't even get Tim after he broke them up. She then tells him she never wants to talk to him again and storms off, making Scott feel worse about his actions. The night of the play when Sadie overdoses on meds, Scott is present and starts to cry, saying it's all his fault, believing she started to take the pills because of her breakup.

In Do What U Want, Scott and Chloe approach Brittany at school and Scott tells her that he heard about Bernard blackmailing her for money using a video of them having sex. Brittany knows that Chloe told him and is initially upset, but Chloe reminds her that Scott won't tell anyone and helped her with Bernard before, so she goes on to tell them she has a plan on how to get the money. Instead of telling them, she gives them an address and tells them to meet her there at 8 and she'll show them. Scott and Chloe are both confused, but listen and wind up at a bar. Once they get in, Scott realizes they're at a strip club and are astounded to see Brittany in lingerie dancing on stage. Scott looks away and says there's too many boobs and they wait in a corner and discuss what's going on. Scott tells Chloe she must have gotten in there illegally since she's only 16 and says she must be pretty desperate as they look back in worry.
When she gets off, they both start judging her. While Chloe says it's trashy, Scott is more worried about the implications of her being a minor and doing this. He tells her that it needs to stop when she says that she likes it and how confident it makes her feel. She then asks if she'd be better off selling drugs and neither say anything, which gets Brittany upset that they think that is better than dancing on stage. Chloe calls her a slut and Brittany loses her mind. Scott tries to say Chloe didn't mean it, but Brittany screams at Scott to leave and throw a hairbrush at him, so he darts out following Chloe.
In Big Girls Don't Cry, Scott is going over the plan for his and Dex's movie night they are having and Dex mentions that he didn't know Scott liked X-Men, which Scott says he does, but the look on his face says otherwise when he turns away. Eliza comes and tries to invite herself to their movie night, so Scott tells her it's a guy's night out. Eliza is mad and tells him they're hanging out on Sunday no matter what before Mr. Hanson calls for Dex on the PA. He says it's probably about him failing a class and Scott says goodbye.

They are later sitting on a bench while Dex lays his head on Scott's shoulder as they discuss why Dex doesn't want to be around his family right away. Eliza comes and asks Scott to give them some alone time, but Scott says if Dex wanted to be with her, he'd find her. Eliza gets very annoyed as does Dex, who tells them that they need to love him more than they hate each other because he hates having to deal with their fights. Eliza sits down and the three sit in an awkward silence together. Soon after, Eliza's mom texts her that she's there to pick her up and Eliza says that Dex should come home with her. At first, Dex is about to say he'd rather stay with Scott, but Eliza then says he needs to stop ignoring her, so he decides to appease her and leaves Scott. He tries to get Scott a ride home so he doesn't have to walk, but Eliza purposely says no and kisses Dex while staring right at Scott. They leave as Scott is left feeling furious with Eliza.
The next day, Dex calls Scott after seeing missed calls from him. Scott picks up immediately and asks how he is, saying he's there whenever he needs him. After Eliza revealed Scott's feelings for him and said she'd leave Dex if he picked Scott over her again, Dex says they won't be able to hang out for a while and hangs up. Scott is heartbroken and confused.
In Same Love, Scott walks past Dex and Eliza and Eliza purposely turns them in a different direction so he can't talk to Dex. He meets up with Keith and talks about how they're going to nail the presentation they're doing together. Scott says he's nervous about talking in front of the class, so Keith says to act like Scott is just talking to him. They stop in front of Scott's class and Scott tells him that he didn't need to walk him to class, but Keith says he wanted to and they high five before Keith leaves. They are later working on their project in the hallway and kiss. Keith brings up their past, but Scott says they were so clueless about everything back then and things are different now, making Keith believe maybe they might work out this time.
In a flashback Keith has, it shows the initial reason behind Scott and Keith's rivalry and the reason everyone hated Scott in the first episode was because Keith told the whole school Scott stole money from his parents after Scott's dad caught them cuddling and kicked Keith out. The next day, Keith puts his arm around Scott in the hallway and Scott mentions that his friends are convinced they're going to date. Keith asks if they are as they sit and Scott says he doesn't know. Keith brings up their past and all the stuff he did, but Scott says he's just focused on the present and that Keith was the first guy he fell for, but that they should take things slow to make sure things work out. Keith kisses him and asks if he's allowed to do that and Scott says definitely, so they then make out. Scott then leaves and accidentally bumps into Eliza and Dex. Eliza thinks that Scott is stalking them and calls him out on it, upsetting Scott who tells Eliza she can't manipulate Dex forever. After Eliza accuses Scott of flirting with Dex, which Scott wants to keep secret, she calls him a slut for now being with Keith and Scott is shocked. He looks to Dex to stick up for him, but instead, Dex says Scott should leave them alone for a while. Heartbroken that Dex would betray him for Eliza, Scott seeks out Keith's comfort and asks if his parents will be home that night, confirming that he's only using Keith to get his mind off of Dex.
In Catch My Breath, Scott is at Eric's birthday party and after Keith makes a remark about blowing things after Eric blows out his candles, Eliza comments that she doesn't need to know what they do in their free time.

In Misery Business (1), Scott walks back into school with Keith holding hands and Alicia comes asking if they've defined their relationship yet. Keith explains they're taking it slow and Alicia tells them that everyone already thinks they're dating anyway. Scott then kisses Keith goodbye before heading to class with Alicia. He is later in class with Angel texting Keith and she gets his attention, acting worried that he's talking to him again. Scott asks what's wrong with it and she tells him that he's using Keith to fill the void Dex left. Scott denies this, saying he and Keith have always had something. When Angel says it's convenient they started talking right when the love of his life left him, Dex asks if they can stop talking about this and says Dex was just a crush. He then says he's not into Dex anymore and will prove it before walking off. At lunch, Keith asks if they can have dinner with Scott's parents so he knows they still don't hate him and Scott is shocked. Keith explains that he wants the whole world to know about them this time and Scott says he'll talk to them about it, but in his head knows that it will never happen.
Scott is freaking out at his locker and Olivia comes and asks if he's going to come out to his parents, but Scott is lost on what to do. He explains that he's been ready to come out forever, but he's not sure how his parents will take it and reminds her of how they freaked out when he wanted to join the pride club. He says it's not likely they're opened their minds when Olivia brings up that might might have. Olivia then says she'll talk to Keith because he shouldn't have to force Scott to make this big decision, which Scott is grateful to her for. After the talk doesn't go well, Keith goes to Scott and sets up a date for the dinner, which Scott unhappily agrees to, starting to freak out. He calls his dad from an empty classroom and hopes to tell him over the phone so it won't be as bad, but as soon as he brings up Keith, his father calls him a faggot and Scott realizes they will never be okay with him being gay. He makes up a lie about why he called and hangs up, stressed about what to do. Dex walks by and sees him looking distraught and walks in asking if he's okay. Scott doesn't want to talk to him and tells him to go back to Eliza. Dex tries to make things right between them, but Scott is furious that Dex ended their friendship because his girlfriend asked him to and tells him he doesn't want to be a fair-weathered friend. He then tells Dex that he's had a lot of people leave him, but none of them hurt more than Dex did and leaves. He runs into Keith and tells him that he can't do the dinner with his parents. Keith says that he doesn't want to be his secret and Scott explains that they have a better chance being together if his parents don't know since they might banish him or send him to therapy. Keith gets mad and says he's still the same pussy around his parents that he's always been and Scott asks why he's so upset to which Keith replies that he doesn't want to be with someone who's embarrassed to be seen with him. Scott explains that he kisses him in the halls and everyone at school knows they're together, but his parents just can't know. Keith doesn't understand, so Scott raises his voice and says he wishes things were as easy for him as they were for Keith and that he's jealous that Keith's parents were totally fine when he came out. He says that all he wants is for his parents to love him unconditionally, but that won't happen and that he shouldn't be punished because of the circumstances he's been put in. Keith doesn't listen to anything and leaves. Unbeknownst to Scott, Keith tells his parents they are together.
In Misery Business (2), Scott is walking home and is on the phone with Angel. They are talking about him and Keith and he tells her that he has no idea what is going on between them because they haven't talked since their fight. Angel says that maybe they aren't right for each other since Keith is being so selfish about Scott coming out to his parents. Scott tells her that he knows this, but needs to just get away from everything for a while. After telling Angel he's going to sit in his room and binge watch Pretty Little Liars all night, he walks into his house and sees his parents waiting for him at the kitchen table. Scott gets worried and asks if someone died, but they tell him that Keith called them and said they'd been dating for a month. They then outright ask him if he's having relations with a boy and Scott is speechless, not knowing what to say, but furious that Keith would do that.
At school the next day, he asks Keith what's wrong with him as he bursts into his class before the bell and tells Sophie and Alicia what he did. Keith shows no remorse and says he was helping him, but Scott explains that he had to lie to them and say he was joking or they were going to send him to boot camp. Scott then tells Keith that whatever they had is over and leaves. He is seen crying by Caylee who comes to comfort him. After explaining what happened, Caylee tells him that maybe Keith helped him in a weird way since now he has no other option other than to come out, which he was never going to do on his own. Scott says that he has too much drama going on already to deal with this now and Caylee hugs him, saying they'll get over it eventually. Scott starts to believe that maybe they will accept him after some time and mentions that Dex isn't there for him when he really needs him. Caylee tells him that he deserves better, but that things will work out very soon. Scott then says he's going to come out to his parents and hopes they'll accept him.
He gets home and goes straight to his parents and says he's gay. His mother tells him that he lied to them yesterday when he said he wasn't and Scott says that he doesn't want to go to therapy or a pastor because there is nothing wrong with him. His father says that something is because the bible says how wrong homosexuality is, but Scott mentions that they always skip over the "all men are equal" verse. His father insists they get him help, but Scott says he can't change who he is, which makes his father say he's delusional for thinking the way he does. His parents say that he must go to therapy, but Scott refuses and tells them that everyone at school knows and is okay with it, making them upset that other parents know they have a gay son. After Scott refuses yet again to go to therapy, his father tells him to get out of the house because he's filthy and disgusting. Scott starts to cry and begs his mother to not disown him, but she backs away as his father calls him a faggot and tells him to pack his stuff. They both leave the room and Scott's legs give out in heartbreak and disbelief as he continues to sob alone, abandoned by his parents.
He is next seen on a park bench with suitcases and calls Dex, but only gets a voicemail made by Eliza, causing him to cry harder since Dex's voice was the only thing he wanted to hear. He calls Angel and tells her he has no home and asks if he can stay with her. She tells him she's on her way to pick him up and tells him everything will be okay, but Scott says it won't be this time before laying down in misery on the bench, feeling completely alone. He walks into school the next day with Angel and everyone wants to try and console him after hearing about what happened, but Angel tells them to give him some space and Scott asks if he's going to have to explain it to everyone now over and over again. She tells him he doesn't have to tell anyone anything he doesn't want to and he thanks her for the help again. Scott sees Keith coming and warns Angel to leave since this could get ugly. Keith says he heard what happened and says he never meant for that to happen. Scott says he doesn't believe him because he knew this was going to happen. Keith says that he knows he's a bad person, but knows he's not evil and Scott says that he could have fooled him before slamming his locker and leaving.
In I Write Sins Not Tragedies, Scott finishes moving into Angel's house and tells her mother that she doesn't know how much is means to him for her to let him stay there. Scott is later one of the few people who welcome Ethan back after his time spent in juvey and gives him a hug. The next day, he gets out of the shower and Angel asks him what he thinks about Keith, feeling insecure about herself after planning revenge on Keith with Olivia. Scott says he doesn't hate Keith as much as she might think. He says that he doesn't have to worry about him anymore since he's cut out of his life and isn't going to try and get him back because he cares more about what people think of him as a person rather than getting revenge. This causes Angel to stop her revenge plot on Keith. Dex comes and knocks on the doorframe as they are both shocked to see him. He asks if he can talk to Scott alone and then sits next to him, saying he's sorry for ditching him because of Eliza. Scott says he was mad at Dex for a long time, but now all he wants is for him to be back in his life. Dex quickly hugs Scott. Scott immediately hugs back tightly and looks relieved to finally have him back in his life. They then head out to hang out unbeknownst to Eliza and make up for lost time.
In Almost Is Never Enough, Scott overhears that Dex needs a tutor and says he'll do it, which annoys Eliza who says he needs a real one. Scott says that he shouldn't pay for one when he's willing to do it for free. Dex agrees and put shis arm around him, looking to Eliza for approval. Eliza unhappily agrees, but tells them not to goof off the whole time because he really needs help, and they agree. They are in the library studying and Dex thanks him for the help, bringing up how he has to get his shit together for college. Scott mentions how it'll be weird not having him around next semester when he graduates, but Dex promises they'll still hang out. Dex then hugs him goodbye and leaves as Moon comes and tells Scott he seems back to normal with Dex. Scott agrees and mentions that he feels responsible for Dex's disastrous relationship with Eliza since he was the one to introduce them to each other. He says that if he were a good friend, he'd help get him out of the toxic relationship he's in, but Moon warns him that his plan can only end badly and he shouldn't butt in where he doesn't belong. Scott says as his best friend, he has to help him.
Scott and Dex are studying on Dex's bed and asks how he and Eliza have been. Dex says they've been fine, she's just pissed at him because of his grades like she always is when he messes up. Scott says he shouldn't let her control him, but Dex says he can't think about that right now because he's focused on his grades. Scott asks if he's ever thought about dumping her which annoys Dex who then asks if they can just work on his homework. Scott apologizes and Dex takes his hand and apologizes back for acting annoyed and tells him he's grateful that Scott is worried about him, but he just needs to do well this last semester so he can get into a good college. Scott then gives him a math problem to do and looks worried.
At school the next day, Eliza comes up to his locker and says she knows he's trying to get in between her and Dex and break them up. Scott says they're just friends, but Eliza brings up that Scott is in love with him. Scott says that he used to be, but that doesn't make it right what she did to him involving Dex and separating them or how she treats Dex. She doesn't know what he's talking about, so Scott tells her that she abuses him physically and emotionally and the only reason no one sees it is because the girl is the one abusing the guy and society is sexist. She denies hurting Dex, but Scott says he's seen her slap him and says it might not leave a scar on his skin, but leaves one on his brain and misses when she wasn't a terrible human being. He then leaves and she is shocked.
In Vampire Money (1), he gets home and sees Angel with Eric and a bunch of other people and asks what's going on.

Scott then says they're lucky he watches a lot of MTV and follows how they do it on Catfish, successfully finding all the people. He starts noticing that the people he found are all missing and gets worried that his friends are in trouble. After he finds the last person and sees he's dead, Scott is horrified.

Season 4 Edit
In Know Your Enemy, he is seen in the hallway at school with Dex and looks extremely annoyed when Eliza and Dex both act friendly with Brendan. After Brendan walks away, Scott reminds them that he was the guy who gay-bashed Scott the year before. Seconds later, Sophie walks by and Eliza starts an argument with her, which Scott tries to break up. After things get physical and Eliza starts to attack Sophie, Scott and Dex both grab her and pull her off of Sophie. He later walks in on Eliza and Brendan making out and immediately freaks out. Eliza and Brendan try to calm him down, but he just keeps screaming and runs out of the room. Eliza chases after him and Scott tells her how gross that was. Eliza reminds him that they've been friends for a decade and that he can't tell Dex, but Scott reminds her how she's treated him like shit for months and asks why he would ever keep that secret from his best friend. Eliza sees a chance for manipulation and tells him Dex is replacing him as his best friend with Brendan, angering Scott. She also reminds him how messed up Dex is and if Scott told him, it would only make things worse. Scott asks why she did it in the first place then and Eliza dodges the question, so Scott says he won't tell Dex as long as Eliza ends things with either Dex or Brendan ASAP. They then shake on it and Scott asks if Dex has been hanging out with Brendan when he says he's been hanging out with Eric and Eliza lies and says that he has. Scott then gets discouraged about how everyone always leaves him for someone better, so Eliza apologizes for everything she's done to him lately. Scott doesn't accept it, but just says again how he can't believe he's hiding this from Dex. He then warns her that if he ever finds out, Scott will be by his side in a heartbeat over her's. He then leaves, frazzled and upset.
He later goes to get coffee with Eliza, who comments about how she misses when they used to hang out, trying yet again to manipulate him into hating Dex and coming back onto her side. When Dex walks in with Brendan, Scott gets very upset, so Eliza tells him to stick up for himself and not be a doormat anymore, adding fuel to Scott's fire. Dex walks over and says hi to them and Scott immediately tries to leave, but Eliza holds him back, forcing him to confront Dex. Dex asks if Scott is mad at him and asks why, so Scott says that he is and tells him to look to his left, referring to Brendan. He then storms out.
In Heaven Knows, Eric bumps into Scott and Scott sees that he's visibly upset, asking if it's about Abby's imprisonment. Eric says that is it and feels guilty since she's in there because of him. Scott says that it's not his fault and he shouldn't be so hard on himself. They bump into Eliza and Dex and when Dex tries to talk to Scott, Scott ignores him and walks away. Sensing something is wrong, Eric follows him and asks what's up with him and Dex. Scott responds by explaining the Brendan situation. When Eric asks if he's going to forgive him, Scott asks why he should. Eric agrees he shouldn't and points out that they're both missing the people who mean the most to them. Scott then suggests that they hang out and get their minds off of everything, which Eric agrees to, pointing out how they've always been good friends, but have never hung out just the two of them. They then start to plan what to do as Dex watches in jealousy. He later hears of a rave going on from Brad and passes on the info to Scott, in which they decide to try one out and go together.
They go to the rave that night and as soon as they walk in, they see people having sex, taking drugs, and being totally crazy. Scott seems very uncomfortable and wonders to Eric if this was such a good idea. Eric suggests they go back to his place and chill, which Scott says is a good idea. Before they can go, Eric bumps into his brother doing a line of cocaine and Scott is shocked. As Eric talks with him, Scott is seen being fondled and flirted with by two women, making him very uncomfortable. He slips away with Eric and they decide to go home, narrowly escaping the police as they raid the place. Scott asks about Eric's brother and shows remorse for how he's acting. Eric then brings up that just because he's friends with Keith doesn't mean he condones what he does, regarding him getting Scott kicked out. Scott says he understands and parallels it to his relationship with Eliza, talking about how he can't ditch her for good since it's against what he believes. Eric then asks about how that works with Dex and Scott mentions how he gives Dex everything and feels like he only gets 50% back. They then agree that life sucks before seeing that Abby got released from juvey. They then rush to go see her. On the way, Eric gets a call saying his brother overdosed on cocaine and when Scott hears, he apologizes and asks why Eric doesn't seem more effected, which Eric replies he's done caring about him. He then asks Scott to keep it between them, which Scott agrees to. He and Eric go to Abby's house and when she opens the door, they both shout "welcome home." Scott says he's glad Abby is back safe and sound before giving them privacy.
After getting home at Angel's that night, he feels much better about everything going on due to his talks with Eric and walks in on an intense conversation between Angel and her mother, unbeknownst to him that Angel just blamed her drugs on Scott. He tells Angel that Abby is out of juvey and realizes that something is wrong when they both stare at him. He asks what's wrong and Angel's mother tells him he has until midnight to get his things and move out due to his "drugs." Scott is confused and asks what she's talking about, but Angel plays along with her lie and tells Scott to drop the act because her mom found his drugs. Scott asks what drugs she's talking about, totally lost as her mother tells him he has an hour to leave before walking away. Angel bursts into tears and Scott asks what she did, so she explains her mother found drugs she had on her, so she told them they were Scott's. Scott then freaks out and tells her to tell her mother the truth since she'll understand and he has nowhere else to go. Angel refuses to tell her and Scott tells her that he'll have to sleep on the street. Angel apologizes again before locking herself in her room and leaving Scott to move out. He starts to panic and cry as he tries to figure out what he's going to do.
In Ain't It Fun, he is seen a few hours following the previous episode sitting on a park bench in the middle of the night with a duffel bag of his things trying to get a hold of someone on the phone. He calls Danielle, but gets her voicemail and quickly moves on to calling someone else. After getting voicemails from Caylee and Brittany, he tries to call someone else, but gets a message saying his service has been cancelled due to not lack of payment. In anger, he chucks his phone across the park he's at and lays down on the bench, saying that this is his bed for that night. He then struggles to fall asleep in the cold while looking up at the stars.
He gets to class the next day late and Chloe comments that he smells like he hasn't showered, so he comments that he needs a home in order to shower, which he doesn't have. He then explains how Angel kicked him out and how he had to sleep on a park bench. He then asks Chloe along with Brittany and Alicia if he could spend the night at their houses that night while he tries to figure everything out, but they all come up with excuses, angering Scott who brings up how great it is that they're not there for him even though he is always there for them whenever they need someone. He then leaves class before they can try and comfort him any more. In between classes, he gets to his locker and starts to break down, hiding his face in his locker, but hears Angel calling his name and quickly composes himself. Angel tries to explain herself further, but he doesn't give her the chance and tells her that his life is ruined because of her, but she corrects him and says it's because of Keith. Scott then changes his mind and says his life sucks because he gives everything he can to everyone else, but no one ever returns the favor. He then says that he's over people apologizing but then not showing it after Angel tries to do so, so she asks what she can do to help. He says she can try to not disappoint him like everyone else has, but then says it's too late for that. As the warning bell rings, Scott walks off and Dex walks up to him, mentioning that he heard what happened and is sorry. Dex tries to hug him, but Scott dodges it and says he can't deal with him right now. Dex doesn't understand since they're best friends, but Scott brings up all the bad things Dex has done to him like ditching him for Eliza, befriending Brendan, and talking him him when it's most useful to him. Dex apologizes, but Scott tells him also to prove it. Dex tries to by inviting him a place to stay, but Scott refuses his offer. He then says that no one cares about him and he doesn't care about himself either now, so Dex tells him that he cares about him a lot. Scott then asks why Dex and everyone else treats him like shit and says that he's done with everything and doesn't see a point to anything anymore. Dex says that Scott has him, but Scott comments that he won't if Eliza finds him dangerous to their relationship. He then leaves to find a job leaving Dex upset at where they stand.
Scott is next seen filling out an application for a pizza shop and is recognized by Hank, Keith's ex-boyfriend. They start up a conversation about Keith and Scott tells him how Keith got him kicked out of his house. When Hank asks where he's staying now, Scott says a park bench, alarming Hank who quickly offers him a place to stay. Scott at first seems hesitant because Hank is 20, but seems more interested after Hank leaves him his number and reminds him that they both share being screwed over by Keith. He goes to the hub with Eric, Abby, and Sophie and mentions that he might sleep at the school when Abby asks. Sophie says he should tell Mrs. Dayton, the guidance counselor, about his problem, but Scott says she'll put him in a group home and wants to figure it out himself. He asks if any of them would let him stay over for the night, but they all refuse. Sophie then gives him money for him to go get her a coffee, which Scott does with annoyance. At the counter, he is greeted by Keith who comes in. Scott tells him not to talk to him and when Keith thinks he's mad because Keith rejected him, Scott very loudly and sarcastically exclaims that that's why he's mad, because he got rejected by "Mr. Fuckboy." Eric tells Keith to leave after people start to watch them, but Scott says he'll leave instead. On his way out, he bumps into Olivia and tells her that he's fine even though it's apparent he isn't.
Later that night, Scott is walking through the hallways at school with all of his things and sees Eliza, explaining that he's sleeping at the school that night. Eliza tells him to stop being stubborn and forgive Dex so he has a place to stay, but Scott refuses to let him get off easy after everything he's done. Eliza blames herself for making Dex choose between her and Scott (leaving out how she recently pitted him against Dex under false pretenses) and Scott brings up how Dex chose Eliza in that situation. She then apologizes for everyone that has hurt him, but tells him he has to accept help from somebody and doesn't have to deal with everything alone. She then leaves and Scott chases after her, asking if he can use her phone. He calls someone and asks them if he can stay with them. Eliza smiles, believing it's Dex, but in the next scene, it's shown that he was actually talking to Hank, getting picked up by him and driven to his house. Once in Hank's car, Hank hugs Scott out of nowhere and sniffs his hair, freaking Scott out. Hank then tells Scott they'll have to share a bed since he only has one, which freaks Scott out even more. Hank says that they're going to have a lot of fun together as he strokes Scott's thigh and drives off, leaving Scott feeling very uncertain and scared of what he's getting himself into.
In Bad Blood, Scott notices Danielle looks annoyed when she walks into class and asks if something is wrong, which she says there isn't. She then asks if he has somewhere to stay. which he tells her he does. He then asks her about her struggles, wanting to focus on someone else's rather than his own for a change. She talks about how she really doesn't like her mother's boyfriend and Scott tries to get her to give him a chance because her mom deserves to be happy.
In Glory and Gore, Scott comes to his door one night after Hank says someone is there to see him. He sees it's Dex and is shocked to see him at his new place with Hank. Dex expresses his concern over Hank's age, but Scott tells him he's only 19 and has been through hell because of Keith as well, so they understand each other. Dex asks if he'd rather stay with someone he knows, but Scott says that Hank doesn't make him pay rent and now that he has a job at the pizza shop, he can save up for a place of his own and move out soon anyways. Dex apologizes for how he acted and says he wants to be best friends again, but Scott is still unsure about how he feels about the situation. Dex then brings out a picture frame from behind his back and reveals it's a photo from Scott's 15th birthday party, the first time they ever hung out, and tells Scott he has that sitting on his nightstand, which shocks Scott. Dex explains that he knows he messes up sometimes, but that Scott is the most important person in his life, even over Eliza and his family after Scott asks. Scott then caves and admits that Dex is his #1 and he was just nervous to forgive him in fear he would just treat him like shit all over again. They agree to become best friends again and hug after Dex says he needs one from him. As they hug, Dex kisses Scott on the forehead as Hank watches from the window looking angry. Dex then brings up that Scott has always been there for him and it's his turn to return the favor, making Scott feel guilty since he is still keeping the secret of Eliza's affair from him.
At school the next day, they are walking together and walk into Eliza, who is shocked to see them on speaking terms again. Scott comments that they're best friend goals and Dex mentions that he and Dex tell each other everything unlike other friendships they have, making Eliza worried about her secret. After Dex hugs Scott and leaves, Eliza asks if Scott told Dex about her affair, which Scott says he hasn't.
The next day, Scott finally decides to tell Dex about Brendan and Eliza's affair. When he does, Dex is furious and Scott feels like a horrible friend for going against Eliza, but says he'd also be a horrible friend for keeping it from Dex. Dex then angrily goes searching for Eliza as Scott tries to stop him and say how mad she'll be if she finds out Scott told him. Dex doesn't listen and Scott awkwardly listens to their fight as Eliza brings him into it saying he only knows how to be a bad friend. Dex sticks up for him as Scott doesn't know how to react to what's going on. After Dex breaks up with Eliza, she looks for retribution by telling Dex that Scott is in love with him, mentioning how Scott follows him around like a puppy and saying she kept that secret because she was a good friend unlike Scott. Scott is completely blindsided and embarrassed, quickly turning red and telling her to shut up. When Dex asks if it's true, he can't form a response and says "fuck you" to Eliza before running off in shame. Dex finds him later on and asks if he can sit next to him, which Scott replies that he can if he wants. Scott then tries to apologize, but Dex cuts him off, saying he never would have kissed Scott if he had known how he felt. Scott then corrects that he kissed him twice and Dex says he's okay with how Scott feels, but is worried about things becoming uncomfortable between them. Scott then explains that he doesn't feel that way about Dex anymore, but goes over how he fell for him in the first place and how Eliza interrupted that. Dex apologizes for causing him so much pain, but Scott says he shouldn't feel sorry for his stupid feelings. Dex then says that they're not stupid before leaning in to kiss him, only to be interrupted by Sophie, who came to warn Dex that Eliza is telling people he's gay for Scott, believing it to be only a rumor, but now seeing it's not. Scott covers for him by saying Dex is just trying to make him feel better, so Sophie leads them to continue their conversation, but first gives Scott a high-five, embarrassing him even more. Dex says he wasn't kissing him just because he felt sorry for him, but Scott stands and says they're better as friends and can't be anything more because they both know Scott would be the one getting hurt in the end. Dex takes his hand and asks for him to stay, but Scott leaves to process everything that just happened.
In With Every Heartbeat, he wakes up to Hank singing him happy birthday and putting a cupcake on his chest. Scott is confused how Hank even knew it was his birthday and Hank explains he saw on facebook. Scott then blows out his candle and refuses to tell Hank what he wished for since then it wouldn't come true. Hank understands and suddenly kisses Scott, throwing him off guard. He then starts to make out with him as Scott doesn't reciprocate and looks very uncomfortable. Hank pulls away and looks hurt that Scott isn't into it, asking what's wrong. Scott says that nothing is wrong and realizes he can't ruin things at his new home, so he brings Hank in and starts to make out with him very heavily. When Hank starts to stroke Scott's inner thighs, he looks very uneasy, but continues to keep Hank happy. Hank stops him and says he has to go to work, but says he has a special surprise for him that night, running his hands down Scott's chest and insinuating it's something sexual. Hank leaves as Scott looks very confused and worried, taking a bite of the cupcake, but not liking it and putting it on the dresser.
He comes into school late and sees many of his friends at his locker waiting for him for his birthday. Abby asks where he was first period and he explains that the ovens broke at work so he had to go in and help fix it. Dex then wishes him happy birthday and everyone else follows suit. He thanks them and says he's surprised they remembered, noting that Hank even remembered. Danielle then notices that Scott has a hickey and asks where it's from. Scott quickly covers it and goes to his locker to distract attention from it. When Jamie and Caylee press for him to reveal who it's from, he says it's from Hank and tells them that he's not with him, but Hank thinks that he is, so he's going along with it to avoid being put back on the streets. His friends all start to speak their disapproval of what he's doing and when Angel brings up how weird he is and suggests he might rape Scott, Scott tells her he wouldn't be in this situation if it wasn't for her, causing her to angrily walk away. Scott then apologizes to everyone for his behavior and explains he just has a lot on his plate and can't focus on his birthday, but appreciates their wishes, saying he loves them all. Everyone leaves except for Eric, Abby, and Dex who continue to worry about the situation he's in. He assures them all he's okay before hugging them all and leaving for class. Dex and the other two then agree they have to do something to help him.
He sees Keith in the hallway and asks if Hank is dangerous, reminding him that he wouldn't come to him if he wasn't desperate. Keith refuses to help him, saying that Scott got himself kicked out of his house and doesn't owe him anything. Scott asks how he got himself kicked out and Keith explains that if Scott were a good boyfriend, Keith wouldn't have had to tell his parents about them. Scott notes that they never even dated officially, so Keith says he doesn't feel bad leaving him. After Keith leaves, Scott looks upset and hopeless about his new-found nervousness about Hank. Peyton overhears their conversation and offers her help to him, noting she's done a lot of background checks in the past and can do one on Hank. Scott thanks her for her help, but she says this is her birthday gift to him, going off to do her work and winking at him, causing Scott to feel much more relieved over the situation. He sits down on a bench to ponder what's going on and Danielle comes to sit with him. He tells her his moral dilemma of how he thinks Hank wants to have sex with him and that he doesn't want to, but is afraid that if he doesn't, Hank will kick him out. Danielle tells him how disgusting that is and asks if he's ready to have sex. Scott says that he is if it were to be with someone he loved, but he has no feelings for Hank. Danielle suggests he clear things up with Hank and say he just wants to be friends, but Scott is worried that might get him kicked out too. Danielle says she won't judge him if he fucks Hank just to have a place to stay, but warns him that other people will if they find out. Scott agrees and says this is a test of how much self-respect he has for himself. Danielle tells him that he'll do whatever is the right thing and hugs him, leaving just as Eliza comes and tells him that she forgives him for telling Dex about her affair. Scott points out that he did the right thing and doesn't need to be forgiven for it. Eliza then accuses him of breaking up every relationship around him because of his jealousy and loneliness, bringing up how he did it with Sadie and now with her. This causes Scott to lose his shit, pointing out what a terrible person she is and how bad of a friend she was to him, saying he is completely done with her shit and everyone else's. He storms off leaving Eliza looking furious.Back at Hank's apartment that night, they are watching TV together when Hank starts to touch Scott's leg and kissing him, saying how hot he is. He then unzips Scott's pants and inserts his hand into Scott's underwear, saying he wants to see what he's packing in there. Scott is very uncomfortable and pushes Hank off of him after Hank says he's hung. He very carefully tells Hank that he barely knows him and isn't ready to have sex yet with him. Hank is completely okay with it to Scott's amazement and says they can hold off until he is ready. Hank then brings up the surprise he mentioned earlier and brings Scott into the garage where there is a new car for him. Scott is completely astonished and asked how much he paid for it, not expecting to get anything from Hank. Hank doesn't answer the question and goes to get his jacket so they can go on a test drive. Scott immediately calls Danielle when Hank is gone and says he's in deeper than he thought, saying how Hank got him a car and he can't possibly leave him now. Danielle is flabbergasted and calls Hank a psycho. Scott hangs up on her as Hank comes back and suggests they go to the beach to watch the sunset. They get in and Scott starts to back out of the garage as Hank kisses his cheek and Scott looks very overwhelmed and shocked.
In Call Me When You're Sober, Scott is sitting with Abby who is researching base jumping. Scott asks why she wants to go and she explains that she wants to try new things after being released from prison. He comments how scary it looks and she looks hurt, asking if he would still do it with her. Scott sees Eric coming and says that her very understanding boyfriend is here to take his place. After they start to argue over Jarrod sending her to prison, Scott says it's his cue to leave and walks off so they can have their privacy.

She asks if he's going to tell Dex about the baby since it might be his, but Scott says that with everything going on, he doesn't need to know about it and worry about that as well. Alicia comments about how people will react when they find out about this, but Scott says that no one can find out. When she is confused and asks why he is protecting Eliza due to their friendship being over, Scott corrects her and says he's protecting Dex, not Eliza.

Scott starts to get impatient and suddenly hears the song "Birthday" by Katy Perry, getting very confused. After Dex says he can open his eyes, he sees Dex holding two Katy Perry concert tickets, causing Scott to freak out, not believing they're real at first. Scott jumps up and down in excitement and tells Dex he loves him, hugging him and making Dex laugh. Scott then points out that Dex doesn't even like Katy Perry, but Dex said watching Scott see his queen perform will be hilarious to watch and worth it. Scott says that he can't believe Dex would do this for him and Dex comments that after all the bullshit he's been through lately, he deserves this. Scott continues to admire the tickets and tells Dex he's going to have to deal with him freaking out over the concert for 4 months.
After Alicia cancels on her double date with Brad and Olivia and Troy, Brad asks Dex to come and make things less awkward, so Dex brings Scott with him, who mentions he's never mini golfed before , but doesn't mind being there for Brad. At the first hole, Scott mentions that he has no idea what he's doing, so Dex starts helping him by re positioning his hands on the club, making Brad and Troy smile since they believe Dex likes Scott back. Dex quickly lets go of Scott's hands and lets Scott try it, who gets a hole in one. When Troy tells Scott he just has beginner's luck, Scott says his teacher is just really good and high-fives Dex. After golf, Dex walks Scott to his apartment, mentioning that with the crazy person stalking Abby, who knows what he wants. Scott thanks him for tonight and says that he had fun even though he sucked. Dex mentions they should do things like that again and Scott asks if he means going to couple's nights at places and pretending to be a couple to get a discount. Scott then says he's happy they're friends again and Dex tries to apologize for his actions again, but Scott says it's in the past now and asks how he's been doing since the breakup. Dex says he's been doing better, which makes Scott happy who says he hates seeing Dex upset. Dex says he should be getting home and they start to reach out for a hug, but suddenly, both lean in for a kiss and start to make out. Scott quickly stops it, saying Hank might see and get upset since he thinks they're a couple. He then says that Dex doesn't feel that way about him, but Dex admits that he doesn't know how he feels anymore. Scott then says he's been down that road before and got hurt and doesn't want Dex to get his hopes up, so they need to stop doing this right now. He then wishes Dec good night and goes inside, still shocked by what just went down.
In Ain't No Rest For the Wicked (2), he walks into the spring fling with Hank, upsetting Dex who was planning to tell Scott his feelings about him that night. He is later seen slow dancing with Hank as Dex watches, figuring out what to do next. Dex sees Scott is alone and walks up to him, asking where his boyfriend went. Scott specifies he's not his boyfriend and says that he went off with old friends, asking Dex if he's having a good time. Dex says that he hasn't danced with anybody yet and wants Scott to change that, so Scott says it'd be his honor. They then start to slow dance and Scott mentions that they'd better be careful or people will start making gay jokes about them, but Dex says he doesn't care. Scott mentions that he saw Dex talking with Eliza and asks how that went. Dex says he's not giving her any more of his time and Scott says that's good because she doesn't deserve it for what she did to him. Dex brings up what she did to Scott as well and Scott once again says it's in the past and they can move on now.

Scott says he feels like a shitty person, but Jamie corrects him by saying he's a good person who has shitty things happen to him. Scott asks her if she's having a good night, but she moves on and tells him she saw him and Dex dancing, asking what that's about. Scott says he thinks Dex might have feelings for him and isn't sure if that's a good thing or not. Jamie says that Dex is the love of his life and Scott doesn't argue with it, but says that now the idea of them being together is a possibility, he's scared to death that if they dated, they would soon break up and not speak anymore. He says he'd rather be best friends than date for a while and end up hating each other. He also brings up that he knows Dex cares a lot about his image and masculinity and wouldn't want to keep it a secret like he thinks Dex would if they got together. Jamie says he needs to stop worrying and just be happy, but Scott says he doesn't know what makes him happy anymore before leaving again with Hank.

On the way, Scott smiles at Dex and mouths the words "thank you" to him, which Hank sees and is upset by.
In the office, Keith finally wakes up and Hanson asks why the fight went down, so Scott says it's because Keith is a psychopathic maniac. He then explains everything Keith has done to him to Hanson and Keith's parents and reveals that he crashed his car into Hank's. Keith explains that he hates Scott because his parents loved him and spent time with him and that's all he ever wanted, which is why he got satisfaction of getting Scott's parents to hate him.

He then shows him his latest paycheck, which Dex is shocked by because of how much it is. Dex hugs him and says that he should be working, Scott tells him he wanted Dex to take the summer to perfect his art in order to be accepted into a great school for it.

Scott and Dex are later having coffee with Eric and Peyton and Scott tells Peyton the concert tickets were the best birthday gift ever when she asks if he's excited for the concert. Dex kisses his cheek and goes to the bathroom and the second he is out of earshot, Scott tenses up and tells Eric and Peyton he needs their help. He explains how Dex told him he identifies as straight, and Eric is confused and thinks he should at least consider himself bi since he's dating a guy. Peyton explains that she's heard of people who are straight, but fall for one person of the same sex, but it never happens again. Eric asks Scott if he's okay with that, and Scott seems unsure, worried Dex might fall for a girl again and leave Scott since it would be way easier to just be with a girl rather than him. Eric assures him that Dex is head over heels for him.

He then asks if they can talk about something and says he doesn't understand how Dex can identify as straight while being with a man. Dex explains that he's never felt anything for a guy other than him. Scott asks how he knows he feels something for him at all, which Dex responds that he just does. Scott asks why he doesn't just be with a girl and make his life easier, but Dex says he'd rather be with him. Scott admits that it'd be easier if Dex were just bi, which upsets Dex who thinks Scott wants him to change himself just to make Scott happy. Scott tells him that's not what he means, but Dex says that in relationships, you have to love everything about the other person, not just pick and choose. Scott says this is just new to him and he needs time to process, but Dex gets upset because he gave up so much to be with Scott. Scott gets upset and tells Dex to go be with a girl and get pussy like he really wants instead of wasting his time with a guy. Dex says that he will and slams the concert tickets on the table before walking out, leaving Scott very upset.
Later that night, Scott is at the Katy Perry concert with Danielle, who is having a great time and dancing while Katy sings "Teenage Dream." Danielle thanks him for bringing her and notices that Scott doesn't seem very happy to be there at all. Danielle tells him that she knows he'd much rather be there with Dex, but to try and have a good time. Scott asks how he can have a good time when he and Dex might break up over this. Danielle explains that if he breaks up with Dex over this, he's a dumbass since Dex chose to be with him over a girl for a reason. She also says that he saw how hurt he was for so long because of the feelings he had for Dex, so now that he has him, he should never let him go. Scott jokes that Dex can get it up with him, so he must be attracted to him.

She tells him to stop being a sad sack and to dance with her, which Scott does.
After the concert, Scott gets home and crawls into bed next to Dex. Dex asks how the concert was and Scott says it would have been better with him there and apologizes, saying he was right about everything. Dex admits he should have told him sooner, but Scott says it's okay and that he expects everyone to leave him, so he was pushing him away so it wasn't harder later on. Dex rubs Scott's arm and explains that he's never going to leave him because he's never felt a love like this and is willing to give every piece of himself to Scott just to make him whole again. Scott says he just wants Dex to be happy and isn't sure being with a guy will make him happy. Dex tells him that Scott has gotten him through everything and he wants to be with him until he dies.

She asks him how things are with Dex and he asks if she really wants him to answer that question. She says they can leave him out of the conversation and he asks about her homeschooling. She then asks if he would tutor her, and he tells her that he can't because he's working 50 hours a week and has no time to commit to something else. Eliza tells him that she thought he wanted to fix things between them, and he explains that just because he can't tutor her, doesn't mean that's not true. Eliza gets up and says that she tried and Scott apologizes, but she refuses the apology and when Zak delivers their drinks, she tells him that Scott will pay for them and leaves.

Scott tells her that he knows how that feels, but most of the time, the other person doesn't even realize they're doing it. He asks if this has to do with Danielle, and when she says yes, he reassures her that she's just busy with the election, but that doesn't mean she doesn't still want to be best friends. Angel mentions that she's hanging out with Lana 24/7, and Scott tells her it's because they're running partners and that Angel should talk to Danielle about how she feels and to cut her some slack.

Scott assures him that he's ready and there's no one else he'd rather have his first time with. Dex says he wants it to be perfect and Scott says that if it's with him, it will be and tells him he's been so bust with work and school, he wants more time with just Dex. Dex then brings up the blowjob, which makes Scott laugh as they go under the covers.
Later that day, Dex gets home and Scott tells him it's Italian night as he cooks pasta. He asks where Dex was and is worried when Dex tries to lie, saying it's okay if he doesn't tell him. Dex admits he can't lie to Scott and explains he was at his parents' house. Scott asks if he had fun and when Dex starts tripping over his words again, Scott asks if he's okay. Dex then proceeds to tell Scott that his family wants him to move back home, and a part of him wants to move back as well. Scott asks why he wants to leave and Dex explains that he hates taking care of himself when Scott is gone, which is all the time. Scott explains that someone has to pay the rent and he doesn't mind working doubles so Dex can focus on school, but he thought Dex was also okay with that. Scott offers to pick up less hours, but isn't sure how they'll make the rent each month. Scott then gets very emotional and tells Dex not to leave because he needs him, which frustrates Dex who feels like he's being pulled in many directions. Scott says they'll figure this out, but Dex tells him that he will figure it out himself because it's his life, which offends Scott. Scott says that he thought Dex was happy with him, but guesses he was wrong. Dex tells him he was wrong because he's not happy, causing Scott to go in their room and slam the door, crying. Dex follows him into the bedroom where Scott asks if he wants to break up, which Dex replies that he doesn't, but admits things aren't fun anymore. Scott asks what happened to them that morning, and Dex explains that the second Scott leaves, he's depressed. Scott offers to quit his job, but Dex tells him not to and that he's going to stay with his parents for a few nights to figure things out. Scott tells him to have fun with his asshole father and leaves, very upset.
Dex later returns the next day and finds Scott sitting in silence. Scott explains he's thinking of a way to make money without working and Dex tells him not to quit his job. Dex apologizes for not realizing everything Scott was doing for him and giving up for him, which makes Scott feel slightly better. Dex apologizes for being a jerk and taking out his homesickness on him. Scott asks why he doesn't just go home more often, and Dex explains he wanted to believe he was adult enough to live on his own, but knows now he's not. Scott tells him that he always tries to act like a manly man who can take care of everything himself, but it's okay to not be that guy sometimes. Dex says that when Scott is at work, Dex will go home and see his family, which makes Scott happy. Dex tells Scott that he makes him happier than anything in the world and kisses Scott, who then tells Dex he's so happy he didn't lose his virginity to Hank or someone he doesn't even know anymore because he knows Dex is his guy and the only person he wants to lose it to. Scott explains that he doesn't want to mess things up with him and wants to grow old with him. He then tells Dex he wants to have sex. They proceed to take their clothes off and get into bed, exchanging "I love you's" and having sex.

They toast chips to eating their feelings and after Danielle explains how her Thanksgiving ended up bad, Scott explains that he planned a nice day with Dex, but he went to his family's last minute and left Scott with no plans. He then gives Danielle advice for taking in the fact that her father just came out as gay, saying it was harder for him to accept himself because the culture growing up portrayed gays as disgusting. He comments that he couldn't imagine how hard that would be and pushes Danielle to talk to him since coming out was very hard and knowing his daughter supports him will mean the world. She complains about how awkward it's going to be, and he tells her she's going to need to bite the bullet on this one. Danielle rests her head on Scott's shoulder and asks what he's going to do alone all day since it's not fair to him. Scott says he'll be fine since he has to finish Parks and Rec and might hang out with some people later. Danielle thanks him for being so great and tells him that even though life pulls them apart sometimes, he has always been the best guy in her life and hugs him. She then goes, leaving Scott to spend his Thanksgiving alone watching TV.
