When Coach Chandler takes the blame for covering up the soccer team poisoning scandal, Regina's mother Gloria targets Danny for expulsion, leaving even his friends unsure if they should defend him. Meanwhile, Kyle finds a troubling connection between the Desai family and Green Grove City Hall, and is even more dismayed when he learns the mayor, has hired another investigator to look into Regina's hug. And Rico scrambles to stop the spread of a revealing video that could rip friendships apart and hurt someone he cares about deeply.
Danny Desai is a charismatic 16-year-old with a troubled past who returns to his hometown after spending five years in juvenile detention.
Immediately branded an outcast, Danny attempts to reconnect with his two childhood best friends, Jo and Lacey, and to smooth over tensions with his mother Karen, whose socialite status plummeted after her son's imprisonment and the mysterious disappearance of her husband, Danny's father.
When a fellow student is found dead in her home, Danny instantly becomes the prime suspect and town spirals into a frenzy of suspicion and mystery. Jo and Lacey must decide if their childhood friend is unforgivable, or if he's really a victim being persecuted for his own twisted secrets.
