Fateful is the twelfth and last episode of the first season, which was first broadcast on September 27, 2011.


In the Season Finale, everything comes to a head at the Winter Formal. Jenna must finally decide between Jake and Matty, Tamara’s love life takes a surprising turn, Ming brings an unexpected date and the mystery behind the care-frontation letter is revealed.


Jenna agrees to go to the Formal with Jake. She convinces him to take Tamara as well, since they're just going as friends, and Ming tags along as well. Matty decides that he won't give up on Jenna and goes to her house, only to find that Jenna has already left for the Formal. Jake and Jenna have a good time at the Formal, and Jenna decides that maybe Jake is the one for her, but then Matty shows up.

Without either of them letting Jake know what has happened, they talk about whether they should be together. Jenna takes Jake's hand and realizes that that's what she wants, and tells Matty that she's very sorry, but she thinks it is too late. When Jake and Jenna get home, she asks him if he wants to come inside since her parents aren't home. He does, but she asks him if it's okay if they wait, and he says of course. She tells him that holding hands means a lot to her, since he's the first person other than her parents to hold her hand in public.

They manage to set off the alarm, and Jake goes home. Jenna, looking for the alarm code, goes into the junk drawer and finds a note pad that has the same paper the letter was written on, and realizes her mother is the one who wrote the letter.
