Heartstopper season 2 episode 2 recap

The episode starts with Charlie, Tao, Nick, Isaac, and Ben’s parents meeting their teachers. They want to talk about how they’re doing in school. But the focus shifts to Charlie. His teacher notices he’s been late to class and not finishing assignments.

It turns out Charlie’s been distracted because of his new boyfriend, Nick. Charlie’s mom isn’t happy about this and decides to ban Nick from their house until Charlie catches up on schoolwork.

At the same time, Elle is thinking about prom and what to do about Tao. Her friends encourage her to make a move, which makes her think about her feelings and what she wants.

During class, Nick gets a surprise visit from Charlie. Charlie pretends to give Nick his pen back, but it leads to a fight between Nick and Ben. Ben accuses Nick of not wanting to be open about their relationship, but Nick disagrees.

We also see an important moment with Nick’s brother, David. He sees messages on Nick’s phone from Charlie and realizes that they’re dating. David confronts Nick and they argue about it. This shows how families sometimes struggle to accept new things about their loved ones.

While Elle explores the Lambert School of Art, she makes friends with Feliz and Naomi. Even though she’s uncomfortable at first, she starts to enjoy herself. While Elle is having fun, Tao is back at home looking at her pictures on social media and feeling sad about the possibility of Elle moving far away.

Charlie gets into trouble when he goes to Nick’s house and comes back late. His parents are waiting for him and his mom finds out where he was. She grounds Charlie for the rest of the semester and warns him not to sneak out again, or he won’t get to go to Paris.
