As summer comes to an end and the upcoming school year is less than a week away, we see how everything has changed since school let out. Alicia's friends reach out to her after not hearing from her all summer and discover that she's changed immensely since the start of the summer. As they try to figure out what happened to make her this way, Alicia is forced to relive her rape from the day after prom and starts to look at it in a very new light. Meanwhile, we catch up with Dex who is now the center of a very tight group of friends which includes his girlfriend Eliza, Scott, Angel, Brad, and Jamie. When he gets bad news from home, he tries to be the strong guy that everyone sees him as, but how long can he fake it for? And Ethan finds a new recruitment for his lacrosse team when a guy named Micah moves next door, but he'll have to compete with a girl named Candace for his attention.
