Elodie, raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico finds herself in Portland, Oregon after her mom dies. Thankfully, it is with her dad, but with them not being close, it is an uncomfortable situation for her. But, at the very least, her stepmom and brother aren’t making an already bad situation worse – she is. How? Well, since her mom went into the hospital, she picked up a habit of stealing. It began as an accident, just taking a thing of Starburst without paying, and developed into a habit. One which she justifies as her taking back from a world which took her mother from her.
Additional Information About Elodie
It’s revealed in season 1, episode 2, that Elodie has an interest in girls. Specifically, a friend from New Mexico named Zoey. Someone who may not have known about Elodie’s feelings.
Address: 1380 Lake Forest Drive, Lake Oswego, Oregon 97038
Has a collection of many of the things she stole hidden under her bed. Especially trinkets and jewelry.
Is 16 years old.
Blames herself for her mother’s death since her mom died picking her up from a party early.
Favorite Instrument (2.1): Notes her mom taught her to play the ukelele.
Elodie’s dad who means well, but while Elodie’s mom was alive, he clearly wasn’t an active member of her life. He checked in, had her come for the sporadic holiday, but he definitely was not the most attentive father.
Additional Information About Doug
Divorced Mara when Elodie was 6 and moved to the Portland area due to a job offer.
Someone who made it appear she was interested in being friends with Elodie, but really she was just pushed to by her dad. So, her character description is that she is trash since she decides to reveal that openly.
Additional Information About Rachelle
To attract a boy she likes, she dumbs herself down. However, she struggles doing so since she is smarter than the boy.
Coming from a well to do family, it seems Tabitha might be set for life. Add in an attractive boyfriend as well, and you may think she has not a worry in the world. However, there is more to her than the visual she puts out there. The question is, who is willing to look beyond the surface?
Additional Information About Tabitha
Tabitha dated Brady for two years before they broke up and it seems, more often than not, she has been in a relationship since 9th grade.
It’s Just A Little Crush (2.6): Has had a crush on Ben since she was 11.
When We First Met (2.9): Tabitha met Ben when she was 9.
Moe is a bit of a mystery. Outside of formerly being friends with Tabitha, a love of stealing, and having a secret relationship with Noah, Moe doesn’t reveal much of herself to us at first.
Additional Information About Moe
Despite the general appearance of her not caring about most things in life, that is but a ruse. As learned in season 1, episode 2, Moe is a big reader, into STEM, loves her often absent mom, and there is so much more to her than she often allows people to know.
Father, Danny Traux, is currently in Two Rivers prison.
Her brother’s name is Ben and seems to, like her, know a lot of people.
Previous to meeting the girls, Moe didn’t shoplift before. In fact, the reason she is in Shoplifters Anonymous was because she took the hit for one of her brother’s friends. She just decided, after her time was up, to stay because it was therapeutic.
Not much is known about AJ. From what we see, it’s clear he is very flamboyant and one could assume he is queer but that is not confirmed. Also, we learn from him he isn’t as new as Elodie but is familiar with that feeling for it isn’t like he grew up in Portland. Now, whether he will end up a friend of Elodie after his introductory episode? That remains to be seen.
Whit is Tabitha’s dad who went to Stanford and that is the source to many of his connections, for he also pledged to a fraternity. As for what his day job is? Well, the only thing that is clear is that he is making enough for a rather large house in a Portland suburb.
Additional Information About Whit
While we don’t have specifics, it is assumed Whit is in the banking industry.
Lori is Tabitha’s mother who is a social media influencer. Now, whether or not she was such before meeting Whit is hard to say. All that we know for sure is that her way of thinking does have a negative effect on Tabitha. In fact, Lori is likely the source to some of Tabitha’s insecurities and possibly part of the reason she was with Brady so long.
Additional Information About Lori
Has been married to Whit for 18 years.
Runaway (2.1): Reveals she ran away as a kid.
Life Before Motherhood (2.5): Lori formerly lived in NYC as a model
A friend of a friend of Moe’s, she takes an interest in Elodie and presents her with an awkward kiss. Pushing the idea Elodie is quite green when it comes to talking to girls, kissing, and maybe intimacy in general.
A singer, who also happens to be Luca’s roommate, who takes an interest in Elodie after catching her trying to steal some merchandise. Specifically a pin.
Additional Information About Sabine
According to Luka, she is very much into herself, is a bit of a nomad, and maybe has control issues. Pair that with her saying she isn’t much for labels and Elodie has a serious possible issue on her hands.
Moe’s mother who raised both her and her older brother while her father was in prison. Often, she worked multiple shifts at a local diner to make ends meet so she doesn’t get to have as much quality time with Moe as Moe would like. However, despite that, Moe appreciates and loves her mom to bits.
Additional Information About Vicky
Ben (Andrew Jacobs)
Moe’s older brother that just left military school when we meet him in season 2 and shows an interest in culinary.
After Doug finds her stash of stolen goods, and the remote for Brady’s car, she is told she is going to be sent to an inpatient facility in Seattle. However, she decides instead to go on Sabine’s tour to escape that sentence.
He learns his daughter is involved with Doug’s car being stolen and tries to send her away for help since he is beyond his rope.
Thanks to Spencer, Doug learns about Elodie’s stash and that she was part of Brady’s car being stolen. He does apologize before Doug drops the hammer though.
Instructed by Doug, she arranges the whole Seattle in treatment care for Elodie – off screen.
The guy she likes and talks about all season leaves her for someone else so Elodie says she should talk to another guy. Hopefully one she doesn’t have to dumb herself down for.
After revealing to her mom what Brady did, she supports her and even lets her off the hook for the Stanford party. Thus allowing her to head to Luca’s apartment and spend the night – under the ruse she is sleeping over a friend’s.
With losing her chance to study in Korea for a semester, due to punching Brady, and her dad Danny ghosting her, Moe steals a bottle to drink from. Though, on a positive note, by the 1st season finale it seems her and Noah’s relationship gets ironed out.
After being denied entry into Whit’s Stanford party, he calls the cops, as promised, to report who jacked his car.
While he has an injured arm, due to trying to impress Moe, in the long run he wins the girl and should still have a chance to impress scouts with his soccer skills.
Free from Sabine, with a basement apartment, Luca is happier than ever and may soon be a restaurant manager. That is on top of Tabitha’s newest boyfriend.
AJ only appears in two episodes and seems happy in both so let’s assume he is fine.
After being called out for cheating, he and Lori are talking and while they haven’t full on reconciled yet, it seems she isn’t willing to throw 18 years of marriage away.
After pushing Brady and Tabitha together, she finally lets that go and looks over Brady before getting back to the Stanford party he wants in so bad. Also, as noted, while she hasn’t forgiven Whit, she is warming up to the idea of maybe reconciling.
She appears solely in one episode and after the awkwardness with Elodie, likely won’t be seen again.
She’s dead from a car accident but with Elodie’s deposition, the driver should be brought to justice.
She, on a rather major tour, is taking Elodie through the southwest and eventually will head out east.
The last we see of Vicky is when Moe talks about meeting her dad. Whether she knows about Moe losing her opportunity to go to Korea is unknown.
