Tonight’s episode of Awkward season 5 is titled “Misadventures in Babysitting.” According to the episode synopsis, “When Jenna Hamilton (Ashley Rickards) volunteers to baby-sit, Matty McKibben (Beau Mirchoff) helps; Lissa Miller (Greer Grammer) learns the secret to being a Palos Hills mother; Tamara Kaplan (Jillian Rose Reed) and Sadie Saxton (Molly Tarlov) are in over their heads.” For a refresher on what happened last week when Jenna tried to get Matty to forgive her for the article she wrote about their relationship, read my recap of episode 19.
In an Awkward season 5 episode 20 sneak peek clip, Tamara’s new boyfriend Patrick (Justin Prentice) introduces her to his friends. She still hasn’t told him that she’s not really rich and it seems that his friends don’t believe that she’s one of them. They can’t believe she has a job and she quickly says it’s an unpaid internship and acts like she can’t imagine working for a living. They tell her they absolutely couldn’t imagine it and Tamara is visibly uncomfortable. Watch the Awkward season 5 episode 20 preview clip below.
The Awkward midseason trailer shows more of what’s coming up on Awkward season 5. Jenna tells Luke (Evan Williams) that they should move in together. Ophelia takes Lissa under her wing, telling her to “lean in” and “be her own rich husband.” Sadie gets so angry at the rest of the group that she tells them, “Matty, Lissa, Jake and Tamara, I would literally rather die than be friends with you.” Right after saying this, she appears to crash her car. Then we see Sergio (Niko Pepaj) in a hospital, looking worried. Watch the Awkward season 5 midseason trailer below.
