Wondering if Ricky (Daren Kagasoff) and Amy (Shailene Woodley) are getting back together? So is everyone else around The Secret Life of the American Teenager universe. Everyone is talking about it–except Amy and Ricky. How long will they be able to keep their secret?
Ben (Kenny Baumann) has been pushing his luck lately at his father’s butcher shop, and Leo’s idle threats of joblessness will finally become a reality on August 16th’s episode of The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Ben gets fired after partaking in a jealous rage that we all saw coming. Ben will finally lose his cool and attack Ricky while at work. Is he mad because of Ricky’s past relationship with his baby mama, Adrian (Francia Raisa)? Or is he struggling with coming to terms with Ricky’s possible future relationship with Amy? I suspect the latter, especially after learning that Ben and Adrian cook up one crazy plan to make their ex-significant-others jealous–they are going to (pretend to?) get engaged. I’ve got to say, I think this scheme has “backfire” written all over it.
Ricky might get jealous, but it’s not over Adrian (yet). Instead, he receives a text message featuring a picture of Amy partying it up in a New York City night club. Sources say she is wearing her pajamas (because that’s the theme of the night club. Really?), and one of her new friends from the music program sends the picture straight to Ricky. Apparently Amy just can’t find friends with the ability to keep their mouths (and phones) shut.
Although it is unclear about why this particular photo was so incriminating, it does inspire Ricky to find some new girl to shack up with for the night. Well, at least some things never change. Will Amy find out, and how will this affect their (possible) future relationship?
Meanwhile, it’s Amy’s birthday and there’s some concern about who is actually going to remember with Amy across the country. Out of sight, out of mind? George (Mark Derwin) and Anne (Molly Ringwald) do call Amy up to tell her about their wedding plans, but are they so wrapped up in their own renewed romance they’ve forgotten about their own daughter’s birthday? Of course, her main concern will be if Ricky will remember–and what he might do about it. We at least know that her New York buddies will try to make it a special occasion, with a cake and everything.
