We recapped every episode – access the archive.
At school, Tabitha is still worried about Luca. Brady talks to her about the Halloween party and offers not to go himself if it makes her feel uncomfortable — Tabitha tells Moe that it’s possible that he’s changing but Moe doesn’t buy it. The audience does not buy it either.
Tabitha tells his friends that Luca has gone and his apartment is empty like “Next level ghosting”. She doesn’t understand where he has gone — it’s almost like he never existed.
In the band class, Elodie is crushing on Jillian and Noah notices. She isn’t sure whether she’s into girls. Noah checks out Jillian’s social media to try and find out. Elodie believes she’s an enigma. In robots class, Moe figures out how to get a robot working that wasn’t moving. So Elodie has a new romantic storyline already — Trinkets season 2, episode 4 moves Elodie away from the narcissistic singer very quickly suggesting that Sabine may not come back.
Jillian approaches Elodie about the Halloween parties and they are nervous around each other. Jillian states she will be going to Rachelle’s party; Elodie will be going to Jordan’s party. When Elodie returns home, she tries to encourage her father if she can go to the Halloween party. He says no but Elodie reminds him that she can only get better by existing in the world. Her father agrees and Elodie tells Moe and Tabitha she wants to go to Rachelle’s party as she wants to see Jillian. In a nutshell, they are now going to the perceived less-cool party.
Finding a costume
Ben asks Tabitha if something is up and she talks about “Boy drama”. He asks Tabitha to punch some dough to make it into better bread. And then Tabitha and Moe dress up in scrubs for the Halloween party. It looks like Tabitha has a new romantic storyline brewing as well.
Elodie has 90 minutes at Rachelle’s party before her father arrives to pick her up. She’s dressed up as Disney. Elodie doesn’t know how to approach Jillian but Moe and Tabitha give her advice. Elodie finally plucks up the courage to talk to Jillian — she asks if she wants to head to a shed which sounds extremely weird and it makes it a little awkward.
The party gets going
The party gets into a full swing after more people arrive. Elodie has 30 minutes left. She scopes Jillian who is dancing with another guy. Meanwhile, Moe is playing drinking games in the kitchen. Noah wants to talk to her and he’s angry that she was meant to hang out with him at the other party but she didn’t turn up or communicate with him — he then walks out. Brady shows up at the party and Tabitha wants to leave. Trouble brews quickly in Episode 4.
Elodie sees she has three minutes left and decides it’s not going to happen with Jillian so plans to leave with Moe and Tabitha. However, as she leaves, Jillian says goodbye to her. They talk about the first gay woman in space as Jillian is wearing an astronaut costume. As Elodie is about to move forward to her to go for the kiss, her alarm goes off and she has to go outside to see her father.
As Tabitha leaves the party, Brady approaches her outside and he’s clearly drunk. Tabitha tells Brady that they aren’t going to get back together. Moe joins the conversation and tells Brady to take responsibility. Brady gets angry and punches a car so Tabitha draws out a knife and tells him to not f*ck with her girls. Kayla arrives in a timely fashion that diffuses the situation and Brady walks off. Episode 4, “Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun”, sees new romances forming as the story moves away from old flames and brings new dynamics to the plot.
