Guns And Gossip



Rumors are a funny thing. Regardless if they are true or not, it changes things. In the case of Angela, she is the victim of a rumor going around the school and beyond that she has had sex with Jordan, which she clearly wants to dispel as false. In the case of Rickie (Wilson Cruz), who is the victim of bullying due to his sexuality, he wants nothing more than to have people think he is carrying a gun so that bully's will leave him alone once and for all. Both of these incidents are connected to Brian, who happens to have started the rumor about Angela and he was also a witness in the hallway when the gun went off.

The school Principal wants nothing more than to make the school feel safe by getting to the truth about what Brian may or may not have seen regarding the gun. Over the course of the episode, the Principal becomes more invasive and threatening in trying to coerce a confession from Brian till evnetually he finally stands up to him with threats of a lawsuit for harassment. It's at this moment he realizes what Rickie is going through now that he himself is a victim of bullying, just as she saw the damage he had done to Angela about the rumor when she confronted him on it earlier.

The gun issue is never resolved since Brian keeps the truth to himself. The kids at school think nothing of it, that all is forgotten and it's going to just be another day at school. That is till they all arrive at school and now have to walk through a metal detector. Yup, rumors changes things.
