“The Lexicon of Love (2)”
Season 5, Episode 12
December 5, 2005
April 7, 2006
Kevin Smith helps a confused Paige come to terms with her sexuality and her feelings for Alex. Alex and Paige become a couple. Emma feels compelled to tell her mom she saw Snake and Ms. Hatzilakos together, and gets him thrown out of the house. Paige tells Hazel the kiss with Alex was nothing, and that Alex is nothing, and Alex hears them and gets angry. Jay hangs out with Alex and apparently Emily and Chad are back together, despite the fight and Chad throwing Alex under a small table. Alex goes outside for air and then sees Paige. This episode ends with Alex and Paige holding hands.
Paige wakes Alex up in her bed - Paige spent the night on the floor - and as the two girls awkwardly prepare for school, they try to avoid what happened last night . As in, the fact that they kissed. What happened? That kiss... does it make them lesbians? Bisexuals? Alex shrugs it off. She doesn't know what they are or what that kiss meant. All she knows is that she's not freaked. Paige is. She is not supposed to be into women but Kevin reminds her—neither is Alex. He convinces Paige to be true to herself - and to her feelings. Are they lesbians? Are they bisexual? Who cares? They're together.
Emma feels compelled to spill the beans about Snake and Ms. Hatzilakos. Spike loses it. Not over one little kiss - because Snake asked Emma to keep a secret, and that is unforgivable. She kicks Snake out, disgusted that he would use Emma like that.
