Episode Title: Karma
This blog entry contains episode highlights involving Carla' character, Brenda.
At the Smith home, Josh is working on household chores and is ignored by Hillary when he asks to join her study group (where he hopes to see Nelle).
Brenda quickly reminds him that he was the one who had volunteered to help Yaya Ciana with the household chores, as his way for making up for his fake amnesia. Josh reluctantly agrees to stay at home.
Later, as the school day ends, Brenda suggests to Stick and Honey that they join Hillary and her friends since they're going out that night and it sounds like fun. Stick hesitates at first, saying he needs to check papers.
Honey urges him to go out and have fun and says Brenda will be happy to help him check the papers later. Surprised, Brenda asks why she would be helping, and Honey responds by pointedly asking her who Stick's girlfriend is.
Cornered, Brenda says she is Stick's girlfriend, thereby proving Honey's point. Honey is excitedly dragging Stick away when Stick notices Ray, who is still waiting for his brother PJ to come by and pick him up after school so they can go buy a PSP.
Ray assures them that PJ will come as promised.
So Honey pulls Stick away, leaving Brenda trailing behind them muttering about being "the girlfriend," as Ray watches them leave.
Later that night at the club, Brenda arrives with Stick and Honey; their friends are already there. Brenda asks Hillary if she has seen Josh. Still exasperated by Josh's latest antics, Hillary tells Brenda that if she only knew what else Josh has been up to today.
As the night wears on, Brenda watches Honey talking animatedly with Stick, and wonders to herself how much longer she'll have to pay for not immediately telling Honey the truth about her relationship with Stick.
She also wonders how much longer Josh will have to pay for his mistake. She knows in the end, they will all forgive him and accept him as he is, because he's not a bad person, and Josh is her brother. He just has to learn a few lessons.
Unknown to them all, Josh is already aboard a bus, leaving them behind with nothing more than a note, which is delivered to the Smith home by Rickson and Webb.
