Being asked to Homecoming by Matty McKibben is nothing short of a high school fairy tale come true, but as he makes Jenna his date with pomp and circumstance in the “Awkward” sneak peek below, she can’t help but feel racked with guilt as she notices all the PHHS single ladies deflating around her. Finally being on the other side of “Bloody Thursday” (so-called because the boys don’t know their way around the sharp end of a pin) just makes her more sympathetic to the lonely heart’s club, because, until she became “Matty’s Girl,” she knew the heartbreak of being alone all too well.
“In my excitement to be a ‘have,’ I had forgotten about the girls who were still ‘have-nots,’” Jenna narrates. “I knew what it was like to be bare-chested.” Then again, with her flashy pin safely affixed to her shirt, Jenna’s mood lightens, and she decides to let the garish piece of craft-jewelry serve its intended purpose. “Maybe it could just remind me that I was lucky to have a boyfriend,” she says.
Check out the video below, and tune in to an all-new “Awkward” next Tuesday night at 10/9c!
