Awkward season two, episodes 9-10

Homewrecker Hamilton
Jake texts Jenna a picture of her making out with Matty and writes “cheater” under it. Jenna tries to explain that they were broken up when she kissed Matty, and then she finds out that Sadie told Jake everything. Jake and Matty get in a physical fight during a pep rally. Kevin gets Jenna a car, making her worry that her parents are going to get a divorce and he’s preemptively trying to make it up to her. Ming is cut off by the Asian mafia when Becca finds out that Ming is dating her ex, Fred Wu. This episode wasn’t pleasant to watch most of the time because of all the fighting. Jake was a huge jerk to Jenna and this episode made Ern realize that while Matty treated Jenna badly last season, he might be the sweeter of the two. She’s still Team Jake though. Matty was an awful lay and a bad non-boyfriend. Never re-date a guy who was ashamed of you! The Ming stuff was a stupid distraction from the funny, important Jenna drama. In the end, Jenna releases her blog to the public, forwarding it to everyone. The pep rally scene was the best part. We also liked when Val counseled the boys. They are writing her character better these days. She’s less cartoonish and just funny now, with lots of good one-liners.
Episode grade: B-

Pick Me, Choose Me, Love Me
Jake and Matty ask Jenna to choose between them. Thank God they are friends again! We like that they were able to put aside their differences for now. The outright hostility was bumming us out. Jenna’s mom deals with the blowback of the entire community knowing that she wrote the letter. We were glad to find out why she did it. Family patterns is an explanation that actually makes sense. We loved this episode because it got Jenna’s parents back together, and we’re pretty sure Kevin loves Jenna’s mom. It was all really sweet. There are enough real-life adorable couples getting divorces. We don’t need it on our entertainment! We loved the end where Jenna forgave her mother. She’s been punished enough. Even Val shunned her! Anyway, mother/daughter stuff really works on our emotions. Finally, there is peace and the separation subplot is over. We think Jenna needs to pick Jake. Matty is endgame, right? Well, it’s not the end of the show yet, is it? No. There will be a third season of 20 episodes. And a good thing too. This is one of the best things on MTV (that's not saying much though).
Episode grade: A

Awkward is taking a week's hiatus. Look for it on the 13th.
