Awesome / Rain

  • Maria makes it clear to Todd that she won't tolerate him picking on her brother.
  • Maria comes out of the closet
  • Rudy snapping and telling off the ever annoying Drew. As seen right here.
  • Emily demonstrating that she understands Rain better here
  • Rain giving Kellen a calm but spectacular What the Hell, Hero? for what she did, and disowning her.
    • And it's followed shortly by Aiken's own What the Hell, Hero? moment where he spells out all the reasons why what she did was not only cruel, but just plain stupid and establishes that it's all on her, so he's staying completely out of whatever else happens between them.
  • Despite being probably the most hated character(and rightfully so) seeing Kellen chew out Chase for getting a teenager(Emily) pregnant. It doesn't redeem her, but seeing her technically stand up for Emily, who she has a mutual dislike for, and give Chase his first taste of consequences for his actions was satisfying.
  • After having enough of Debbie being jealous of Rain for being closer to Emily to the point where she's clocking her as a male, Rain gives her a "The Reason You Suck" Speech pointing out that Emily being so distant is her fault.
    Rain: From the very second you learned she was pregnant, you didn't even try to be there for her. You avoided her. Holly yelled at her. All during an already difficult time for her. If you were really her friends, you'd have made some effort to show support. But even now, it's more important for you to threaten me than to talk to her. She didn't abandon you. She was just scared. You abandoned her.
