Sleezeballs and drama and crappy plot devices in a "reality show"...oh my! I can btw see this happening on a real show though.

7. Oh, why aren't Sara's parents suing, why why why why why? This is supposed to be a show that will get actors and directors work in something other than porn, so why the seduction angle?
8. ...And Sara's rep is ruined the minute this episode of the show airs (cameras and mics in the room, remember), #yeahbitches or no, because google exists and is a thing. There are more plot holes in this than Dinner For Six!
9. Again, this would fall apart, even as a scripted show.
10. Tune in next time on "The Taming of the Shrews" as we continue to gaslight a teenager and a nonneurotypical young woman! Why are we not in jail? We'll never know!

Because Sarah's parents are shitty. Seriously, her mom emotionally abuses her for years once she finds out she's a lesbian and her dad just goes with it. And yes, the passive aggressive shit Iseul pulls IS emotional abuse.

There are editors for reality shows, they don't show everything, certainly not things that might get the show in trouble for allowing. Hilary snapping and her response to Sarah likely got this conversation left on the cutting room floor. The big question is which roles the editors want to shove each cast member into, if they decide the horney lesbian thing won't work they may try to build Sarah up as a hero overcoming adversity.

And that would work, if it were an option, but as Sara intuits, and the text and images make explicit, in a later comic, Meighan, an adult woman, is actively trying to drive Sara, an underage girl, and Lucy, a woman with social difficulties, insane, purely for the titilation factor of the audience... and Meighan's. This wouldn't even make Pornhub, because porn actors and directors have higher standards than this. Why would her parents agree to this?! To keep with the theme, what is even the hell?!

It's really gross. Like why the shit isn't he defending her? I mean seriously. She's telling their daughter that she'd only matter to her if she was straight. I would scream at her for this! It's hideous. DX< That whole 'it's just a phase' shit she pulls and her gross cheating ways. Dear Lord. Her Dad is a tool.

7. Sex sells. Sure the producers have to be careful because of the age of the people involved, but as long as they play by the rules then they are clear of any wrong doing. Moreover, it is to keep this production from being dull because no one is going to take an interest in any of these people if this is forgettable.

8. It is probably an empty threat seeing as how people could look up the infamous video regardless of whether this scene makes the cut.

9. Unless each actor and the director were told something different by Meighan. Perhaps J'Cru was told to act like an affable bumbler, but really there to annoy his cast mates and Martin was told to act like a preachy fundamentalist Christian to annoy his cast mates. And as far as Sara knows this is supposed to be a reality show about putting together a play, but who knows about the rest. Maybe Hillary was told something the others weren't, but Lucy was most likely completely out of the loop since she could never maintain such a ruse for so long.

10. I seriously doubt there would be cameras in the bedroom recording at that time.
