The Other Shoe is the twelfth and final episode of the second season of MTV's Awkward. It aired on September 13, 2012.


Jenna prepares for her trip to Europe while her decision about the boys goes public in the Season 2 finale. Jenna chooses Matty over Jake but has mixed feelings over whether she made the right choice or not. Jake and Tamara make out, possibly becoming a couple. The anonymous commenter on Jenna's blog is revealed and Ricky is seen making out with a mystery person.


Jenna and Matty are now in a relationship, and everyone knows it, including Jake, who is fine with it. With everyone deciding what they are going to do over the summer, Jenna and her friends are invited to go to Europe where Matty has decided to be a head councillor at camp again, much to Jenna's dislike. She tries to persuade Matty to come to Europe but decides to stay instead and be with Matty at camp. During the party, Jake is continuously stalked by a drunk Lissa, but after hiding with Tamara, they share a kiss, witnessed by a jealous Jenna. The season ends with every one happy at the party dancing, after witnessing a shocking kiss between Ricky and Clark.
