What happened in Notorious?

  • Tinsley Carmichael has returned after previously being expelled from the school. She’s not happy to find Jenny Humphrey in her old bed and sharing a room with her former best friends.
  • Tinsley decides the only way to make a comeback is to create chaos. She starts a girls only club and she starts flirting with Brett’s creepy teacher love interest.
  • Creepy Teacher Love Interest breaks up with Brett out of the blue. She’s understandably upset, especially because she broke up with her boyfriend for CTLI.
  • Jenny and Easy become closer. Callie is upset about this and Tinsley is angry. She decides to start creating issues for the cute soon-to-be couple.
  • The girls only club hosts a party and Jenny kisses a guy during a game of Spin the Bottle. Jenny and Brett leave the party shortly after because they’ve had enough of Tinsley and Callie’s crap.
  • Tinsley and CTLI sleep together. He then gets fired because he’s gross.
  • Easy gets word of the party shenanigans and stops talking to Jenny for a bit.
  • Everyone but Jenny and Brett go to a massive hotel party. There’s a lot of drinking. Then the headteacher finds out so everyone gets in trouble.
  • Easy realises he really likes Jenny and he was being a bit silly for caring so much about a stupid game. Jenny also apologises because it was a little out of order if they were definitely together, which I’m not sure they were…
  • The four girls get split up. Jenny and Callie are in a room together and Brett and Tinsley are placed down the hall.
