Whereas Karma continues her secret affair with Liam (Gregg Sulkin), and they both plan to take it to the next level. It was directed by Jamie Travis and written by Carter Covington.

Lauren says she is measuring and found out that her room is smaller than Amy's, she says unless they switch rooms she will tell Amy's mum that she is a Lesbian. At the dining table, everyone is talking, Lauren says she and Tommy were beaten for homecoming royalty by two Lesbians. Amy's mom and Lauren's father are not fascinated by it. Then Lauren remarks she and Amy will be switching rooms to which Amy nods before giving Lauren a death look.
Amy is at Karma's house and is upset that Lauren is threating to tell her mum she is a lesbian, therefore freaking out and tells Karma their fake relationship has to be put to an end to which Karma disagrees. Amy asks Karma whether pretending to be girlfriends doesn't feel weird, Karma jokes if she was 'that bad of a kisser' to which Amy responds as if it felt like kissing her sister. On the contrary, Karma complements Amy saying she was great. Karma's parents interrupt and come in, Amy finds out that Karma has told them about their 'relationship'.
Lauren is furious with Shane (Michael J. Willett) as he makes her pay $50 for Homecoming tickets because she's bringing opposite sex as her date, hence the Homecoming's theme is 'Homecoming Out' thus if you bring a same sex date you go in for free. Shane then asks weather Liam is going with him, Karma and Amy show up at school.
Karma then appear in Liam's art studio, he suggest they should end their affair so that he won't stand in the way of her and Amy but she disagrees and says they are in an open relationship.
