But is he ready to return?
After finding out that Lexi was trying to scare him away from returning to school, John Paul decides to give her a second chance. But she can’t be as forgiving and when he later bumps into Nancy, she offers him an olive branch. However, facing up to all he has done might prove too hard to bear.
The McQueens think the best way to help John Paul’s road to recovery is to get him back to teaching and Sally sets up an impromptu meeting between him and Freya.
But when Sally and Nancy test John Paul on his teaching skills with an impromptu practice lesson, is he ready to make a return after everything that’s happened?
