Awkward season 5: Jenna and Matty's feelings to be rekindled? Secret hangs over Jake and Matty's friendship


The high school drama Awkward has started its fifth and last season in MTV.

The premiere episode aired on Monday, August 31, the International Business Times reported.

According to the IB Times, the episode focused on former lovers Jenna and Matty, as well as Matty’s best friend Jake. Matty made a shocking discovery his new girlfriend Gabby had slept with his best friend Jake, leading to an altercation between the two.

Worse, the IB Times reported, Matty finds out that Jenna knew about Gabby and Jake but neglected to tell him.

On the other hand, Jenna realized that there is no spark between her and Brian while on a double date with Tamara and Adam.

It seems that all hope is not lost for the two ex-lovers, as an article at Heavy hinted that Jenna and Matty will constantly be working to rekindle their lost relationship throughout season 5.

However, the article said, there will be a strange turn of events that will lead to a switch in popularity between the two.

This will apparently happen in the second episode, which will air next month, September 7.

The second episode, titled “Short Circuit Party,” will see Jenna gaining popularity with the students of Palos High Hills after she causes an accident that leads to all the students getting a full day off from school, Realty Today said.

There will also be a secret that could potentially destroy the already fragile friendship between Matty and Jake.

This was hinted by actor Beau Mirchoff, who plays Jake in the series, in an interview with E! News.

“Jake and Matty’s friendship is hinging on this secret,” Mirchoff teased.

“It [their friendship] could end forever,” the actor added.

Brett Davorn, the actor for Matty, told E! News that Jake still deals with his memories of watching his best friend and Jenna hooking up in season two, whether he realizes it or not.
