Leader of the pack. Now he's gone.
EPISODE ONE (2/15/14)
SUMMARY: At a high school sock hop in 1965, several
attempts are made to spike the punch - a task eventually
succeeded at by Emily, who drops a sheet of LSD into the bowl
unseen by chaperone Pops, who is busy talking to misunderstood
bad girl Sue; talk at the school is that they're having an
improper relationship. Brainy, nerdy Paul flirts with the
equally smart and far more mature Connie. And pretty,
popular mean girl Betty is upset with her boyfriend, Jimmy, the
school's bad boy. He used to be sweet with her, but now
he's just being mean. She confides in the shy Sherry...
who confesses she's in love with Betty. But after a
bust-up in which rebel Pete ends up decking Paul, Betty returns
to say that Jimmy's dead... "And it's all your fault!" But
who is she accusing? Was it an accident? And who
drank the spiked punch?
