Relationship History

After two unsuccessful attempts, the two decided to rekindle their relationship in Here Comes Your Man (1), before ending their relationship for the final time in Eyes Without a Face (2), due to the fact that Darcy refused to stop displaying racy images of herself online after Spinner requested her to. They have however, maintained a friendship, as shown in Pass the Dutchie.

Feeling betrayed by Darcy for telling his secret, Spinner walks off and calls Jay to pick him up. He tells Darcy that their relationship was a mistake, but his plans to leave are cancelled when Jay decides he wants to hit on some of the Christian girls. Spinner and Darcy make up, and Darcy reveals she bends the rules sometimes, proving this by drinking some of the beer from Jay's car. While Spinner is busy with
something, Jay gets the idea into Darcy's head that Darcy will lose Spinner to Manny if she doesn't have sex with him. Unaware of what Jay had told Darcy, Spinner is surprised and happy that Darcy would let him go this far. He continues kissing her neck until he realizes she is crying. After Darcy tells him everything, Spinner fights Jay, ending their friendship. After Jay has left, Spinner sits with Darcy, wondering how someone like Jesus or God could forgive him for everything he has done wrong in his life.

Spinner is talking about it with Darcy, who says that she doesn't agree with it but he has a right to freedom of speech.

Jimmy tells Spinner that there is no wrong answer, and Spinner finally decides to answer. He tells everyone his best kiss was with Terri MacGregor.
