  1. I don’t understand why the video was seen to have affected Jo the most? Lacey and Danny were IN it and there will be serious repercussions for them well beyond the exposure of an unrequited crush. One of them should have been the last one to open the video.

    • I know! I don’t entirely understand it either. I also did not understand why Jo told Lacey that she would have talked to her before dating Danny. Why? You don’t normally need permission to date a mutual friend do you?
