# 8 So Yesterday- Fashion trendsetter Hunter gets involved with a new girl and a possible kidnapping associated with his job.
# 9 What Happened to Cass Mcbride- In retaliation for the suicide of his brother David, Kyle kidnaps Cass and buries her alive because of her public humiliation of David when he asked her out.
