The thirteenth episode of THE SECRET LIFE OF THE AMERICAN TEENAGER, “Up All Night” picked up where it left off, in the Juergens’ family kitchen with Ricky and Amy. They talk about Ricky having or not having sex with or without her and then they kiss.
Adrian asks Ben to chill out with her for the night, then talks about sex, then Ben leaves. Alice and Henry have sex without repercussions but that is because they are with each other For Life. They scare Ben, who eventually confesses that he gave Adrian a ring. Alice and Henry, being deductive, think perhaps Ben and Adrian-wait for it-may care for each other. Thank the lord and creator Brenda Hampton (via Jane Lynch’s Emmy acceptance speech) for making this clear.
Madison and Lauren talk. Neither of them chokes to death on their tongue, so I am pretty uninterested.
Grace is staying in the guest house with Tom, who delightfully tries to gouge twenty dollars out of her for information. I momentarily forget that this show is horrific.
Grant eavesdrops on Jack to listen to his whining about Grace and Madison. Grace calls Grant who calls her back and she promises to leave the guest house so she will not speak with Jack, easing his…dominance over her? Showcasing his lack of trust in her? Whoop whoop.
Ricky and Amy sleep in her bed. He mispronounces Michael Corleone. He tells Amy he did not have sex with her sister. Amy’s father is the worst parent in the world. When she comes home he doesn’t even see why she’s home early. Mrs Juergens confronts Ricky, who snaps at her. Amy confronts Ricky again and asks Ricky if he slept with Adrian. He gets really snippy but instead of slapping him, which I kept waiting for her to do since he full deserves it, she seduces him with her dreams. So Amy has replaced Ricky as the show’s resident Buddha. And Michael Corleone’s name was mispronounced.
Grant and Grace sleep in the same room with her mother’s permission. Ben goes over to Adrian’s and spends the night. Henry and Alice sleep on Ben’s floor. Everyone has lovely and perfect and tidy bedrooms. The episode ends in the morning, after a long night where nobody did anything but talk philosophically with Ricky asking Amy to go out with him,
