Despite Yola's warning, Sam and Rivers continue their secret affair. Yola advises Sam to end it or resign from school. Sam finds this very difficult because she's in love with her poetrywriting boyfriend, who is so besotted he can't even see any danger signs. Rose can't help noticing the lovers' behaviour and she secretly tells Sam she's supportive. Sam tries to end it with Rivers, but they can't control their feelings for each other. They make love again and are caught by Bonnie, Rivers' mother, who reports the relationship to Deloraine. Deloraine immediately asks for Sam's resignation and advises her, for Rivers' sake, to end it. Sam, to be cruel to be kind, tells the devastated Rivers that she never loved him and leaves, without him seeing how distraught she is.
