Shocked by her actions, she flees the scene, leaving Christian equally confused. However, Tara is not the only student getting herself into trouble Kat is caught missing classes to attend a music festival with new boyfriend Lucas, and as punishment is forced to "volunteer" at a local dance center for underprivileged children.
