The BEST Episodes of Awkward

Every episode ever - ranked by fan votes!

Last Updated: Feb 28, 2021

Network: MTV

"Awkward" takes an irreverent look at the conflict, chaos and humor that defines teenage life through the eyes of 15-year-old Jenna Hamilton (Ashley Rickards) whose life begins to change when a simple accident becomes an epic misunderstanding and is blown way out of proportion. Narrated in the first-person voice of Jenna's blog posts, "Awkward." captures the humor within the struggles and experiences everyone can relate to from their formative years. The series picks up in the aftermath of the accident as she must deal with a new not-so-fun stigma, while at the same time managing the other daily drama that comes with being a teenager. From a secret relationship with a popular guy, to being undermined by a mean girl, and parents who just don't get it-Jenna's misfortune will eventually serve as the catalyst for amazing change, but it's not without some missteps and mishaps along the way.

Later, Matty, Jenna, and Sadie watch as Eva is busted for breaking into someone else's house, which she originally claimed was hers. Finally, the trip is over, and when they get back home, Jenna decides to call Luke in order to make amends. However, Luke breaks up with her, believing she is not mature enough. Eva takes another pregnancy test in order to assure Matty that she really is with child. Sadie, Jenna, and Matty wait outside the restroom, and Sadie and Jenna are positive that Eva is lying about her pregnancy. However, her test reads positive, and Eva is, indeed, pregnant.
