For most, prom night is a combination of slow dancing to Lonestar’s “Amazed,” keeping step with “The Electric Slide,” and praying someone had the foresight to spike the punch with something better than cheap vodka. But for the Faking It gang, the night was mostly spent thinking about threesomes, shrimp balls, and, well, more sex.

Karma and Shane are preparing to go head-to-head for Wade’s attention  but it’s not about the competition, guys. Shane is still convinced Wade’s gay, rather than bisexual, while Karma is “totally cool” with him swinging both ways. And now that everyone’s on-board, the plan will go definitely *perfectly. (*Horribly.)

And now, tonight’s the night at Hester High, and Wade shows up with both of his red-hot dates in tow. But, neither of them is looking to play fair as Karma turns the event into an episode of The Bachelor  minus the champagne and tear-filled exit interviews. There’s only one rose getting handed out at the end of the night, and she’s “not here to make friends.” 

She grinds all over Wade in the middle of the dance floor as Liam and Shane look on. But instead of getting discouraged, Shane makes the most logical suggestion to the other two parts of his throuple: Let’s have a threesome!

Meanwhile, Liam and Amy are dealing with their own problems. While Liam’s date (an actual skeleton) hasn’t been giving him any lip, Shane’s sister, Sasha, has been pretty hot and cold with him  mostly cold. And between dealing with her and Shane, he’s barely had time to take his date out for a spin. (A shame because Mary Lambert is on stage, and she is killing it.)

And Amy (who’s sporting a stunning tux) tries to keep things friendly with Felix, and the two amuse themselves by quietly making fun of everyone. But Karma reveals that Felix wanted this to be more than just a “friends” thing, which seems to pique her interest.

The night takes a dramatic turn, however, for Liam and Amy as each try separately convince to Shane and Karma not to have a threesome. But Shane and Karma are sure the other will back out, and Liam’s miffed Shane would even consider it since Karma is his ex. The whole conversation eventually leads back to Sasha when Shane tells Liam he should take a hint because his sister doesn’t want him. (And she’s going with the story that ear licking is totally a platonic thing.) But Liam seems to take this as a challenge.
