Episode chronology
"Final Goodbyes"

"Everyone" is the first episode of Series 3 and the 20th episode overall.

This episode primarily focuses on the relationships between the "second generation": the friendship between JJ Jones, Freddie Mclair, and James Cook, the sisterly bond between Katie Fitch and Emily Fitch, the friendship between Effy Stonem and Pandora Moon, and the romantic tension between Emily and Naomi Campbell and the beginnings of a love square that includes Effy, JJ, Freddie, and none other than Cook.


The episode is based around the first day at Roundview College for eight characters. JJ, Cook, and Freddie all become smitten by the cool and mysterious Effy, who sets the trio a challenge: whoever breaks all the rules laid out by the headmistress first gets to "know her better." Meanwhile, dominant twin Katie arrives at college in style, walking all over her quiet sister Emily in the process. Naomi faces up to some old rumours about her sexuality, with homophobic Katie as the main offender, telling Effy that the supposed "lesbo bitch" apparently "jumped" her sister in middle school. Eccentric Pandora is dead set on losing her virginity, but has trouble settling in. At the end of the episode, Cook completes Effy's challenge and has sex with her in the nurse's office.
