Episode Overview

Christian's past catches up with him when his best friend Aaron pays him a visit at the Academy, staying at the Boarding House. However, during his stay, he lets it slip to the Tara, Kat and Sammy about Christian's past - particularly the robbery they both committed, which is the real reason Christian is at the Academy. As the gang begin to feel like they don't know their friend that well anymore, Kat's camera goes missing and the blame turns to Aaron. He claims innocence but uses Christian as an alibi for a much more serious crime, which forces Christian to lie to the police and potentially jeaopardise his postition at the Academy. Meanwhile, Abigail is forced to tag along with Tara after she broke her mirror, passed down from her grandmother. During this, she has continued to restrict her eating and her disorder culminates into her control issues becoming unmanageable and she is soon caught attempting to shoplift from the store. As Tara is left to ponder about Abigail's control issues, Christian is left to question his lifelong friendship with Aaron, wondering whether old friends are necessarily good friends.
