Young Americans: Our Town

Will's new life at Rawley Academy is harder than he expected, especially when he finds it hard to mix his old "wrong side of the tracks" life with his new, better life. Scout and Bella's platonic relationship progresses until Scout gets jealous after meeting Sean, an admirer of Bella's and long time friend of Will's. The meeting between Scout and Sean quickly escalates into a bloody confrontation. Meanwhile, Hamilton and Jake find common ground and decide to be friends despite past awkward moments.
