Awkward Season Premiere Recap: Exes and O's

Awkward Season 4 Premiere“I’m trying to stay away from guy drama and focus on school.” Jenna’s senior year philosophy lasted for about five minutes in Tuesday’s season premiere of Awkward, and it only took two little words to make it all come crashing down: Matty. McKibben.

As if there was any doubt in your mind that Hamiltoe was still hung up on her ex, their hookup in the episode’s final moments proved that America’s favorite couple — based on absolutely no polling whatsoever — is finally back in business. And now that Matty’s got that sweet after-school gig posing shirtless at the mall, their future is pretty much set. It’s a good thing, too, because neither one of them is ever getting into college.

Not doing quite as hot are Jake and Tamara, who accidentally broadcasted their weak fart of a sex life to the entire football stadium during the co-ed senior sleepover — which, by the way, is only a thing that could exist in a TV high school. Tamara eventually figured out she could pleasure herself via the aid of an electric toothbrush, though, so it looks like she and Jake will live to not reach climax another day! (That said, they are breaking up this season, so enjoy them while they last.)

Speaking of things that could only exist on television, let’s talk about Eva (pronounced “evah.”) Do we like her? I do so far, but once Jake and Matty start fighting over her like two hungry chipmunks with but a single acorn between them, I’ll probably change my tune.

Sadie, meanwhile, is someone I will never stop loving. As Awkward‘s new showrunners told TVLine, we learned that our girl Sadie hasn’t been totally honest about her status. More specifically, she’s not making her money from Twitter, “Kim Kartrashian”-style, but rather by selling German weeners out of a truck. She’s so real.

Other things I loved:
* Lissa’s 18-year-old “little brother” Mugabo… I mean, Tyler.
* Every single interaction between Sadie and Ally. I would gladly live with them.
* The many incredible masturbation euphemisms, especially Sadie’s “pearl-fishing in your red lobster.”

    It’s so great to have them back! !

  2. Confused says:

    Since when did Ming leave the show? What happened to her character? Did I miss something?

  3. rachelle says:

    Anyone see the preview for the season? Was that Matty and Sadie in bed together?? Plus, that preview was full of other WTF moments!

  4. Gary says:

    No Ming sucks. Gonna miss her

  5. Lydia says:

    The season premier was great, but I’ve read the spoilers so I know to hold onto that happiness while it’s here. Can I please just have Matty and Jenna together happy and in love? I know they’re both going to be seeing other people for a while but maybe by the mid-season finale can I please just have a real reunion? That’s be fabulous. I know in real life they’d probably break up after high school, but this is TV and it’d be nice to see them make it work. I wouldn’t mind seeing Jenna redeem herself/work for it first though.

    they tried to be Glee season 3 opening with rachel not knowing what to do with college until emma opened her eyes to the future and all the nyada stuff and jenna had problems till valorie opened her eyes so unoriginal hopefully they do better with the rest of the season

    • Jess says:

      Haha that’s hilarious because Glee is the most unoriginal show on tv. Not only do they sing covers of songs, but they even ripoff their own storylines! Jahqueie Burks, you should think about watching other shows besides Glee. Your slunt is showing. You’re welcome.

  7. McAmster says:

    Is it just me or does Tamara look pregnant? Is the actress pregnant in real life? She had big purses, billowy dress… etc etc…

  8. Hanna says:

    The trailer made me cringe a little. Too many love triangles to handle. And Sadie and Matty in bed together? Not okay with it. Please show, please give us Jenna and Matty back by the end of the season. That being said, the premier was good.
