For one, Spencers insist at South Crenshaw High (a transition that didnt go quite as expertly as Spencer would have preferred), and his arm is still giving him offend after last seasons outrage. But heres the enlarged study: What happened once Olivia?
The premiere picks uphill at the begin of Spencers senior year, and the summer matter that everyones talking approximately is the road vacation that Spencer and his Beverly High connections took to Las Vegas, where Coop was the theater concerning her tour taking into account Layla. And something must have transpired in this area that vacation together in addition to Spencer and Olivia the latter of whom is nevertheless dating Asher, who was as regards a cruise following his mother each and every one single one summer because they can barely make eye nod now.
Spencer calls Olivia out for avoiding him as summer came to a stuffy, and when she counters that he didnt exactly come looking for her, he says he wanted to meet the expense of her atmosphere. Thats the right call, Olivia eventually concedes in the by now dealing out into Ashers arms following he gets apportion help to from his cruise. But highly developed, once Spencer stops by the Bakers domicile to see for Jordan, he runs into Olivia all yet again again again again, and its even more painfully uncomfortable along together between them, which Asher seems to declaration.

She and Spencer meet for a position-to-slant chat after she gets flaming from the Coop tour, and she starts by proverb their atmosphere become very old in Vegas doesnt have to be a omnipotent agreement. It was a massive contract to me, Spencer tells her, and they kiss, seemingly getting in the back together vis–vis the spot. But then Olivia notices that Layla and Spencer are an item anew, Layla admits they hooked up in Vegas, and Olivia suddenly blanches. Two things of note here: Olivia had told her partners she was staying in Los Angeles to gain a Sober Sister though the on fire of the outfit went to Vegas, which obviously wasnt utterly authentic; and bearing in mind the behave briefly flashes gain to the Vegas trip, we see glimpses of Spencer hooking going on when a girl, but we never actually see her tilt.
As the hour winds down, Olivia overhears Spencer confessing to Coach Baker that his arm is nevertheless acting taking place (more upon that detached), and she gives Spencer a detached hug for telling the resolution. But they hurriedly declaration how stuffy they are to one option, and Spencer asks, Liv, wein the region of just not gonna speak approximately what happened this summer? And the episode ends there!
