** Then, days after having moved in to a new house with her (new) boyfriend, he is involved in a car accident that leaves him comatose. Although given that she cheated on her old boyfriend with him, and had then returned the favour by trying to lose her virginity to said old boyfriend before settling on the town bad boy for [[TheirFirstTime her first time]] after rejecting her old-new-future boyfriend, that particular cutie had been well and truly [[CorruptTheCutie corrupted]] by that point.

* UnfortunateImplications: The show has not handled homosexuality too well over the years.
** Sarah Lewis and Zoe [=McCallister=] were both [[PsychoLesbian psycho lesbians]], and when the latter makes her reappearance, it's revealed that she has an accomplice working in the police force tracking her down. This is Peter Baker's partner Tracy, who is implied to be Zoe's lover.
*** It's debateable whether Sarah was actually a lesbian, since she had a boyfriend and probably only told Zoe/Eve she loved her so she'd help her escape. (Zoe/Eve had a boyfriend too so she's possibly bi.)
** There was a character called Charlie a few years back; a young man who developed an obsessive unreciprocated crush on Kim Hyde. He kidnapped Kim's girlfriend and deliberately made his own grandmother ill- inadvertently killing her- in order to spend more time with him.
** A different Charlie was also briefly involved in a lesbian relationship with a girl named Joey. This one is so far the best example of the lot, with two sympathetic characters and a reasonable amount of drama involved. The only drawback in this case was its ''brevity'': Charlie was outed, couldn't deal with it and slept with Hugo in order to assert her attraction to men. Joey was shipped out, never to return, and Charlie spent the rest of her life in heterosexual relationships.
