Salsa Time!

The former bffs get off to a rocky and toe-stubbing start, so Zig offers to help Maya with her moves. What he’s not helping her with is ignoring her feelings for him. In addition to moving her hips, Zig also suggests Maya move her lips and try talking to Tristan.

Imogen thinks Jonah may be gay, but when Becky begins to raise some “what do you think about this” type scenarios, Jonah realizes what she’s really asking and assures her he’s straight. He’s even had sex with girls. Actually, it sounds like he’s had sex with many girls. Jonah explains to Becky that he’s straight edge and thinks that kissing leads to sex, so he’d rather not be tempted.

Later that night at the recording studio, Becky finally addresses the tension and tells Jonah that she wants to do more than kiss. He’s scared it will lead to sex, but Becky is firm that she wants to wait until marriage and won’t let it go that far.
