You gotta be there for your friends on a deeper level. listen to them, find out what they need.

The Gift is a stand-alone holiday special that premiered in December. This episode was pretty much the "pilot" of the second season, but technically does not belong in the second season as a whole, only foreshadowing the new plot into the second season and introducing a new character and ThinkFest. After the episode ended, the promo for Season 2 was aired. This is the twenty-first episode overall.


Sun Hi, Jodi and Corki learn the true meaning of the holidays when a blizzard traps everyone inside the school; the teens meet a mysterious new student, Linc.[1]
