Paige Townsen is overwhelmed by her school and workload in Famous in Love season 1 episode 3. For a refresher on what happened last week, read my recap of episode 2.
Famous in Love season 1 episode 3 opens with Paige at the end of an all-nighter researching a paper. Jake Salt sees her and tells her that he has a meeting to pitch his thesis film.
Jordan Wilder meets with his mother. She tells him that he has two days to give her $50,000 or she’ll tell people the truth about him.
Nina Devon talks to her son Rainer Devon. She tells him that she has to cut $3 million from the film’s budget, meaning he’ll have to take less money.
Rainer confronts Nina after finding out that Jordan didn’t take a pay cut. She tells him that she needed the cache that Jordan brings to the film. Rainer tells her that sometimes he needs her to stop being Nina Devon the producer and just be his mom. Then, he storms away.
Paige parks inside the studio. Alexis Glenn sees her and is annoyed that Paige got the best parking spot.
Paige gets caught up at the set, after Jake agreed to start doing her research for her for her paper. She gets home late and finds that Jake had to put off working on his pitch until late in the night because he was doing her research.
The next day, Paige meets with her stylist Francine. She helps her pick a dress, then does her hair and make up.
When Paige finds out that Jake is giving up on being a film major (meaning I will never root for him again, ever? You got rejected once, dude) she tries to convince Alexis to give his script a chance. She tells Alexis she’ll do anything. Alexis tells her to take off her dress.
Then, we see that Alexis is wearing Paige’s dress for their cast photoshoot. The anger between Rainer and Jordan gets in the way of the shoot.
Paige comes home and finds out that Alexis told Jake everything. He asks why she hung up on Alexis when he tried to call her. Paige says she was never going to help him, but Jake informs her that Alexis’ agents liked his script and want to rep him. When he finds out that Cassie Perkins also knew about the call from Alexis, he storms out.
Paige misses the deadline for her paper. She texts Jake asking where he is.
At the end of the episode, Jake picks up Alexis. They head out on a trip to the desert.
