After class, Rayanne catches up to Jordan in the hall. After "hey"s are exchanged, she makes small talk about the gunshot. They pass a bank of lockers, where a student is protesting as a couple of cops search his locker.
Elsewhere, Angela comes around a corner and spots Rayanne talking to an impassive Jordan. At the muted sound of "Stop!" behind her, Angela turns to see a couple of guys hassling Rickie on the stairs. She and Rickie briefly make eye contact, and Rickie hurries up the stairs.
Rayanne flirtatiously asks Jordan, "So! Do you know what everyone's saying?" Jordan asks, "What?" Rayanne elaborates: "About you and Angela, how you guys had sex." "Who?" Jordan asks. "You and Angela," Rayanne repeats. Jordan clarifies, "No, who's saying that?" Rayanne replies, "I don't know -- people! She told me the truth, of course." "What truth?" Jordan smirks. Rayanne mumbles, "How far you guys went. You know." "Well, yeah, 'cause nothing happened," says Jordan. He starts to go, and Rayanne calls after him, "Right, so, like, how come it's all over school?" Jordan slowly turns back, and Rayanne continues, "I mean, you're not talking it up like some low-life derelict cretin telling everyone you did her, are you?" Jordan stares blankly for a moment, then shakes his head and books. "Just checking," Rayanne purrs.
Brian is at his locker when Sharon "Patty Simcox" Cherski appears, with some chick named Gina in tow. Sharon tells Gina that "Brian saw the entire thing," and Gina tells Brian, "I heard you, like, actually chased the gunman." Sharon smugly smirks at Brian, like what is that about? Is Sharon a pimp now, or what? "'Chased the gunman'?" Brian repeats, snickering incredulously. Gina is all wet panties, "I would have just screamed. I have to leave the room when my father uses the electric knife." Brian plainly has no idea what he's supposed to do with this information, and stares for a moment. Sharon is still standing about an inch away from Gina, like, take your cut and clear out, Sharon! Brian's extended gazing at Gina's admiring eyes seems to give him a clue as to how to proceed, and he drawls, "Well, I think 'chase' is a little bit strong, but I was going to check out the situation, because if there's a gun --" A hand comes down on Brian's shoulder, and he spins, stammering, "Mr. Foster!" This guy is obviously the principal (he's in a suit AND BOWTIE), and he dispassionately greets Brian: "My man Mr. Krakow. Still getting all those A's?" Brian smiles nervously and says he is. Mr. Foster says that's good, and, small talk dispatched, tells Brian to come to his office and talk to him. Brian demurs, saying he has a class, and Mr. Foster says, "You're excused from your next class, Mr. Krakow." Brian even more nervously says, "Oh, really? Great. I mean, of course." He closes his locker and follows Mr. Foster, with a quick backward glance at his fan club; Gina and Sharon seem to be losing interest rapidly. The camera does this weird cut to Angela, so that we can't tell, at first, whether she's in the same scene, but then she sees Brian over her right shoulder and...doesn't do much of anything, really, except continue on her way and into the eyeline of Sharon, who whispers to Gina, "There she is." Sharon and Gina walk past Angela, looking sad for her. Angela watches them go, still walking forward, and slams right into a cop.
