Awkward “Resolutions” Review

"Resolutions," the first episode of the second season of Awkward, picks up only a couple of weeks after the big formal dance that prompted Jenna’s major decision. She chose Jake, and while she doesn’t regret her choice, she can’t seem to get Matty off her mind. But even more than that, she finds herself torn between confronting her mother about the "carefrontation" letter or keeping the fact that her mother did such a thing to herself.

On New Year’s Eve, Jenna and Jake take their relationship public at Matty’s party; it doesn’t seem to bother Jenna’s former guy to see her with his best friend…at first. The fact that he gets wasted and almost has sex with Sadie tells a different story, however. He’s definitely not as over Jenna as he wants to be. Of course, Jake still has no idea that Jenna lost her viriginity to Matty, although he is now aware that she’s not a virgin.

Speaking of Sadie, she’s started to lose some weight, but that hasn’t made her any nicer. Her former BFF and flunkie has pretty much defected to Jenna’s side, despite the fact that Jenna is now dating Jake. When Matty passes out just when Sadie is about to get the thing she’s wanted from the beginning, she is rightfully pissed. I’m sure she’ll find a way to make it Jenna’s fault. I kind of hope she doesn’t lose too much weight; I liked her just the way she was. It was nice to have a bigger girl be the villain instead of the dateless best friend or something cliche.
