After the blackmailing incident, Daphne is ordered to do community service at a free clinic. She meets Campbell (RJ Mitte), a former boarder who had sustained serious injuries after an accident. Her relationship with John has also been severely strained. The deaf students at Carlton are less than thrilled about the new wave of students that were forced to relocate to the school due to district budget cuts. Daphne starts off on bad terms with a troubled girl named Sharee. Meanwhile, Bay is taking a college art class and is partnered up with a fraternity pledge, Tank (Max Adler). She shows up to a frat party at his house to work on their art assignment, but ends up getting wasted when her mind drifts back to Ty and his supposed cheating. Toby finds his life as a newlywed at a stand-still, as Nikki is off in Peru. When her boss decides to sell the business, Regina hopes to buy the place with Angelo's help. Also, Kathryn has started seeing a psychiatrist after going through a bout of depression and finds light in taking dance classes, which she is hiding from John.
