Introduced This Episode
Sandra Eva La Dare
Sharon Cassidi Parker

D’unte comes at Dean Fairbanks’ neck, in front of his crush, professor Sandra, due to the low pay TAs receive. Something that, with his family no longer being rich, is also an issue for Gabe, who joins the fight. Problem is, Sam has to learn this through Brooke, who Kelsey is tempted to court, and her learning that Gave lied by omission doesn’t settle right with her.

Also, at this goes on, Lionel learns there is a HIV+ student on campus and Troy is dealing with Kurt treating him as an excuse for more offensive content in Pastiche.

Collected Quote(s) & .Gifs

I f***ing hate being judged on my demographics.
— Sam

Soon, the unyielding manipulations of your best efforts by talentless overlords will form a callus over the joy and passion you once had for writing.
— A Person

Highlights

  • Talking about young queer men of color who are POZ (HIV+)
  • The complicated matter of sexual tourist, or people wanting to experiment with their sexuality.
  • D’Unte calling out Dean Fairbanks over low wages.
  • Dean Fairbanks’ relationship with Troy healing, as well as seeing him make a fool out of himself around Sandra.
  • Troy seeing the dark side of his friendship with Chad.

On The Fence

  • How Sam reacted to Sharon saying “Hi” to Gabe. That felt out of character – even if it was a joke.
  • Abigail likely being on the same path as Muffy, in terms of being a visible white girl whose story goes nowhere.
