The Sex Lives of College Girls season 2, episode 2 recap

We are back in the dorm, and the ladies are throwing their own party because the frats have kicked them out. They are super excited but fast forward four hours later, and NO ONE comes. Frude shows up to pity the girls because no one showed up, and the ladies figured out they needed to make up with the frats.

When Kimberly attempts to call her mom to ask her about the loan for school, she finds out that their dog had surgery, which costs a ton of money. Of course, being Kimberly being Kimberly, she defers and doesn’t mention that she needs the co-sign on the student loan. Next, we move to Bela and Eric, who just hooked up together. After it was over, while they were still in bed, Bela pulled out her phone and looked on a dating app, upsetting Eric. Eric comes up with the idea of them begging the frat boys to let them back in.

Whitney is eating lunch with her friend when she sees Canaan teaching the new girl some stuff at Sips. However, the new girl gently puts her arm on him, causing her to get up to introduce herself. The girl from the last episode that Leighton DM’d hooked up together, and while they are walking on campus, they run into Bela. After Bela realizes what happened, the girl leaves. Bela says she has a brilliant idea to win over the frat boys. Leighton realizes it was Bela’s plan and tells her she is going with her.

Kimberly trying to figure out how to pay for school, decided to sign up for 23 and me to find out if she has any wealthy relatives. One of Kimberly’s professors shows up to ask her to come to a dinner party. Lila realizes that the student from Syria is staying with her, and she might be able to get her to sign that loan.

Leighton and Bela come up with a great idea to let them throw a party for the sorority, and if it is successful in helping them get back in the college’s good graces, they are invited back to the parties. Bela comes up with the Magic Mike-like show mixed with a climate change charity event. Then, Whitney asks Kimberly about the new girl hanging out with Canaan. Leighton confronts her about being jealous, and Whitney plays it off.

At the professor’s house, she agrees to sign off on the loan. Kimberly, excited about the news, starts talking to her husband. While complimenting their house and things, he stops her in his tracks and says, “we should f**k sometime.” Kimberly is perplexed but also looks like a light bulb went off in her head.

Eric, the refugee kid, explains in detail how amazing this party would be for the charity. But, then, Leighton mentions they had already raised eleven thousand dollars which turns the Dean’s head. She agrees to the party if it ends by midnight and there is no full nudity. They thank Eric, and Bela is ready for the party to begin.

Whitney and Canaan talk, and she admits how jealous she is of Zoe. Canaan comforts her by saying she only has eyes for her. Next, Whitney brings up what she heard at the party, which he apologizes for. Leighton is the hottest queer girl on the block now, and she owns it. Finally, Kimberly arrives at the party and tells her what the professor’s husband said. They asked what she said in return, and they found out that she didn’t exactly say no and left the door open for a yes.

The following day, her professor said she could not sign the loan because her accountant said it would affect her credit score too much. Then, Kimberly freaks out because she thinks she might have said yes to her husband about sleeping with him, but her professor freaks out because she has no idea. Moments later, the professor calls her husband to GO OFF on him. Sadly, this means Kimberly needs to come up with another plan for the money.
