Last week on “Awkward,” we saw things come tumbling down on Jenna Hamilton rather quickly. Not only did Jake break up with her after realizing that she had a past with Matty, she then made matters even worse by then making out with him while Jake stood outside her door. It was a bit cliche and predictable, but also heartbreaking.
Suffice it to say, this was not a good episode for her by any means. Not only did Jenna get outed to the entire school for what she did to the two of them, but she also started a fight between a pair of people who were meant to be best friends. There were punches thrown, admissions of guilt, and mass humiliation in front of an entire student body. We really don’t know why Jenna thought it would be a good idea to try and talk to Jake about what happened in front of a massive group of people, but it’s definitely fair to say that it ended up exploding in her face. To make matters worse, someone also wrote a pretty offensive word on the side of her car.
We do feel for Jenna after watching this episode, and what makes her so interesting about a character is that she is so flawed. Even though she did not technically cheat on Jake since he had just broken up with her before she kissed Matty, it was still pretty devastating nonetheless considering that feelings were still there. She also thought that her blog making it into the hands of the world would somehow easy some of her troubles — and instead, it’s likely to cause many more. There was some comedy in this episode, but the tension in this love triangle is becoming so thick that you can cut it with a knife.
