It seems that the Sexual Literacy Tutorial (SLTs) class has been proving to be a fairly typical class and the students struggle to comprehend and connect with the subject. It was difficult watching the noodle-based video which was supposed to educate students about the dangers associated with sharing naked women. Sigh! Teacher Jojo is trying to modernize the class but is promptly reprimanded by the Principal. The principal feels that having truthful discussions about sexuality is giving students the wrong impression.
Amerie is trying to convince the principal to stop the class. She is hopeful when the principal says that they will take a look. Amerie believes that having this class abolished will allow her to recover the social circle she once had. She uses this even to get tickets from Spider however, the principal isn’t willing to cancel the class and she is made an assistant teacher.
In the SLTs class, Quinn discovers the latest version of the map of incest. Someone has written under the lockers. She thinks she ought to tell Amerie about the maps, but Darren is hesitant to let her know. Meanwhile, Quinn has her own problems with her romantic relationships she is in love with Sasha and it takes some confidence to admit the feelings she has for Sasha. Sasha loves her too and even invites her to an evening date.
The evening doesn’t go as planned because Quinn is distracted by the sounds and lights of the restaurant. She returns to her partner and Darren assists her in calming down. He suggests she talk to Sasha once more. Sasha is convinced that Quinn isn’t interested anymore, but Quinn is honest and admits that she has autism. Once the miscommunication has been cleared, they kiss, much to the delight of Darren.

Amerie is able to go to her home Malakai who helps her when she injures her ankle.
The party goes on, and Ca$h takes his keys from Dusty father’s vehicle.
The Episode Review
I was awed by that scene from the bathroom where Darren is helping Quinn to relax. Quinn admitting she has autism and Sasha instantly stating she’ll learn more about autism was a great scene. I enjoyed the way they handled their storyline. Amerie is so enthralled by Dusty that she’s being left out of Malakai who clearly has a desire for her. I’m hoping she’ll look around. I am unable to comprehend the reason Harper isn’t telling Amerie why she is doing something wrong. She should at least be able to provide an explanation considering the manner in which Amerie clarified the situation. It’s clear that ignorance part can be a problem for her.
