Next, Bela is finalizing the staff page, and they are going live in ten hours. Bela finds out they are bound to reach one in eight people, which isn’t enough for them. Whitney is making moves in BioChem class from the bottom to the middle. Canaan is throwing a big party, and they are excited about that. Finally, Canaan asks Whitney to be his girlfriend. She freaks out at Leighton because she thinks they are already dating.
Natalie arrives at the Kappa party, calls out Whitney, and says, “you weren’t going to tell me you gave me clematis.” Kimberly comes to study with Jackson, and he invites one other to study with them, causing her to get a little awkward. Next, we move to Eric and Bela, who discuss launching her group. While they are about to have sex, Eric sparks an idea in her head, and she bails.
Natalie confronts Leighton about the frustration of not telling her she gave her clap. She gets loud, which causes a stir, but Leighton uses it to her advantage with the head of Kappa. Back at studying, Fred leaves to get the Chinese food he ordered, and Jackson takes this minute to tell Kimberly that he invited Fred over cause he likes her. But, of course, Kimberly is caught entirely off guard.
Bela and the crew throw a wrench in the Catullan launch of the magazine by changing their cover. At the Kappa gathering, Natalie EXPOSES Leighton for giving her the clap in front of EVERYONE.
