Season 3[]

In That Girl Strikes Again Sadie explored the upstairs of the mansion, desperate to find her “stolen” golden horseshoe. As she sifted through shelves and drawers, she found herself face-to-face with another loner skulking in the shadows. “Dexter,” as Sadie referred to him, was actually named Austin, and he sat huffing something from a mask, appropriately freaking Saxton out. Still, his strange but warm reception of Sadie was better than that of Collin’s girlfriend, Angelique, who initiated a bitch-off between herself and our favorite queen bee. Back-handed compliments are the fuel of high school mean girl duels, and the Angelique’s rubbing in of her win years prior just fanned Sadie’s flames.

In Old Jenna Austin goes all business on Sadie and Sadie struggles to get him to make a move. They share their first kiss.

In Who I Want To Be Sadie finds herself falling in love with Austin. They go to prom together. He says he loves her to.
