Faking It recap: The Deep End
Let's talk about that Karmy kiss.
When we last left Karma and Shane, they were planning to cement their throuple in a BIG way (a.k.a. with a threesome). And this week’s episode kicks off with Shane and Karma doing the walk of shame. But, did they really go through with it?
Each reveals their side of the story (to Amy and Liam, respectively), but while they both agree they’d exchanged a super steamy kiss in front of hot Wade, nothing else seems to add up. But, whatever, they’re sticking to their stories. Karma assures Amy she has absolutely “no regrets.” And in addition to some “Never Have I Ever” cred, the experience has given Karma a serious ‘tude.
And they’re not the only ones who got lucky — Liam hooked up with Shane’s big sister, Sasha, which naturally upsets Shane, and Lauren’s BFF, Lisbeth, lost her virginity on prom night. Lauren’s feeling a little left out, and she makes the snap decision to have sex with Tommy because why not? (Because it’s a horrible idea, but we’ll get to that.)
Later that night, Lauren’s hope for a romantic night flies right out the window as Tommy decided to invite a few friends over for a party. It was ALL over Tumblr.

Karma is ready to let loose y’all, and that means no bra and body shots. The whole no-bra thing becomes especially apparent when Liam accidentally dumps a cup full of alcohol all over her white shirt. But rather than feign embarrassment, she hops up on the dining room table, 10 Things I Hate About You-style. (“They’re just nipples; everyone’s got ’em!”)
While Karma has officially gone wild, the gang is reasonably worried about her. And, Felix — who wanted to have a movie night with Amy — feels neglected since she’s spent the entire night looking after Karma and cleaning up vomit in the bathroom. To make matters worse, Karma drunkenly blurts out that Felix is the principal’s son, and somehow he gets roped into chugging beer and playing quarters (because peer pressure). Eventually, he gets so drunk that he confesses his feelings for Amy. He can’t stop thinking about their kiss — and she can’t stop thinking about Karma (true, though).
NEXT: Make-ups and break-ups
Wade arrives to clarify the whole threesome thing: It never happened. According to him, Shane and Karma were just about to kiss when he backed out last minute, confessing he wasn’t over his ex-girlfriend. His girlfriend thinks this is uber romantic, though, so maybe it all worked out for the best?
Meanwhile, Lauren is still determined to lose her V-card to Tommy, since she’s not with Theo anymore. But as soon as she gets the opportunity to pull him into her bedroom, he tells her that he doesn’t want to do it anymore. Lauren quickly realizes that he doesn’t want to sleep with her because she’s intersex, and now, it’s been confirmed that Tommy is the worst.
Liam and Shane aren’t exactly getting along at this point either, but Shane puts the breaks on his sister’s budding relationship with Liam by reminding Sasha that he’s in high school, and she’s at a high school party…with high school students…and she’s a substitute teacher…and it’s all totally weird. Besides, she has an ex-boyfriend who arrives just in time to kick the s— out of Liam. Luckily, he has backup from Shane who puts his MMA training to good use. This doesn’t mean the two are back to being friends, though, because you can take the boy out of the mansion, but he’ll always be a Booker.
Just as Lauren comes storming down the stairs to kick everyone out, Amy confronts Karma about the fact that the threesome totally didn’t happen, and she lets it slip that she actually asked Felix to prom rather than the other way around.
Karma venomously lays into Amy about not being able to “make up her mind.” But, one wrong move lands Karma face-first in the pool. Amy dives in after her, and the chlorine jogs some sense back into Karma, and she almost immediately backtracks. Karma reveals she’s feeling lost and confused; it’s obvious she wants to be happy, but she’s not quite sure how to be. And though this new bra-free Karma isn’t working, Amy wants her BFF to be herself because “the real you is so fantastic.”
And then, the two take the phrase “kiss and make up” literally as Karma plants a major, game-changing lip lock on Amy — yeah, those “old feelings” for Karma definitely just bulldozed their way back into Amy’s heart.
As for Felix, he makes it home two minutes before curfew. Unfortunately, at the expense of his dad’s car and the fire hydrant in front of his house. Broken-hearted and bleeding, this buzzed Rapunzel may never be allowed out of the tower again.
One-liners Most Likely to Succeed:
- “Everybody found out I’m the principal’s son so I had to start acting cool. Is it working?” —Felix
- “Fine, you and your nipples are on your own.” —Amy
- “That part was oddly freeing.” —Karma
