Alex has the best of both worlds. She's earning tons of money. But with the guilt of hiding everything from everyone, she's trying to convince herself she's making the right decision. To her disappointment, the money was used just to bail her mom's boyfriend out of jail. Now she's left with guilt, and betrayal.
Alex's double life is finally bringing in the cash she needs, but hiding everything from everyone is taking a toll on her schoolwork and her connection with Paige. But making money is the only way she and her mother won't get evicted, and Alex tries to convince herself she's making the right decision. She later finds out that her mom used the money to bail out her boyfriend. Infuriated by the discovery, Alex cuts her mother out of her life forever and leaves their home, and then tells Paige she quit her job & left home and begs for her forgiveness as well as a place to stay until she can figure out what's next.
When Sean and Emma are not talking, she will have to go through her scariest experience yet -pregnancy. When Emma tells Sean that she is pregnant, he still stays with her.
