In-Depth Episode Synopsis

Warning: the below synopsis may contain spoilers

Will finds out that going to a mixed sex school isn't too bad after all as he pulls Charlotte Hinchcliffe, the most popular girl in the year above. She's fit and according to rumour, sexually precocious. He becomes so obsessed with Charlotte and ends up alienating his hard won new friends by spending all his time and energy on her.

Simon had been getting close to Will and now finds himself hanging out more with Jay and Neil, his old friends who he may well be outgrowing. Neil has his sights set on the school's 'blind date' competition to pull, and Jay bumps into an old friend from when he had trials at West Ham with that never really happened.
