Billy Baker’s big decision about whether or not to accept the head coaching position at GAU loomed over the winter premiere, in a rather fitting episode that was centred around his big birthday celebration. It was never going to be an easy decision for Billy, and his struggle is justified. He accepted the Principalship at South Crenshaw, much to a lot of people’s dismay, including Grace, who didn’t want Crenshaw to be just a stepping stone on Billy’s path to obtaining a coaching position again. You could imagine the anxiety that Billy must have felt, as he gave Grace a tour of the Crenshaw campus at the beginning of the episode, showing her how much he had accomplished. He did act enthusiastic about his current role and seemed eager to continue to make a difference, which at the time made viewers feel as though he may turn GAU down, but feels disingenuous now that we know the outcome.
Asher and Jaymee appear to be the only couple with a healthy relationship at the moment, until Jaymee begins having chest pains tied to her Lupus and needs to be taken to the emergency room. Asher hasn’t had much of a storyline yet this season, apart from the conflict with J.J., so whatever is going on with Jaymee, will hopefully bring Asher a more important role aside from being a supportive boyfriend and roommate.
