Pilot[]

Hunter is a popular guy at school. When Ginny Miller moves to Wellsbury, Massachusetts and attends the same school, Hunter quickly shows interest in her. He makes his friend Maxine Baker ask Ginny if she's single. He later asks her if she can hang out. After she agrees, he tells her it's a date.

At the date, Ginny tells Hunter about where she's from. However, he tells her to skip over the "typical first-date stuff" and get to the "juicy bits" of their lives. He proves himself to be funny, and Ginny is surprisingly enjoying herself. When Hunter drops her off, Ginny gets super nervous and instead of kissing her, he hugs her.

It's a Face Not a Mask[]

Ginny drops a tampon in class, and it hits Hunter in the face, embarrassing her. Afterward, Hunter is understanding and offers Ginny some salty crisp as apparently, saying his sisters usually crave that on their periods. He also apologizes for being absent from the hangout the night before and suggests they hang out again soon. Ginny and her friends are impressed by this, especially because he didn't act grossed out by periods.

Lydia Bennet Is Hundo a Feminist[]

Ginny and her friends talk about sex when she becomes frustrated that Hunter hasn’t done anything sexual with her yet. Marcus listens in and hears Ginny say, “men prioritize their own pleasure and do not know what they are doing”. When Ginny gets home, she poses on her bed with her top off, and sends a risqué picture to Hunter, who begins to type, then stops. Disappointed, she sends the same picture to Marcus and they sext. The next morning, she gets a text from Hunter saying he’s sorry, but he was really busy with homework and ended up falling asleep.

Ginny and friends attend Battle of the Bands, where Hunter will be performing. Before Hunter goes on stage, Ginny tells him that she feels he doesn’t like her. Hunter gets on stage and dedicates a cringe worthy song to Ginny. Marcus looks on, and he seems jealous as Ginny looks happy and overwhelmed by the performance. Afterward, Hunter tells Ginny that he didn’t respond to the photo because he respects her. Ginny tells Hunter that she wants him to think she’s hot.

When Georgia returns home, she introduces herself to Hunter as Ginny and Hunter are sitting on the couch together. As Ginny lies in Hunter's arms, she gets a text from Marcus; leaving her quite troubled and conflicted.

Check One, Check Other[]

Ginny’s father Zion turns up at the school with his leather jacket and motorbike helmet on. Hunter introduces himself as Ginny's boyfriend. In class, Ginny reads out her "where I most belong" essay. The students love it, and Maxine rallies the applause. However, Ginny doesn’t win the round, Hunter does, which frustrates Ginny.

Hunter hooks up with Ginny in her room, and he’s nervous about taking it further. Ginny brings up the essay, where Hunter tells her that her essay was unconventional and the “rules were the rules”, further supporting the evidence that he does not understand her as much as Marcus. The pair argue about stereotypes and identity. It eventually turns to the two throwing insults at each other about “who is more white”. Hunter leaves as Ginny cries on her bed.

Feelings Are Hard[]

Hunter and Ginny continue to avoid each other after their recent argument.
