8 simple rules for dating my teenage daughter season 01
After Ritter's sudden death, Katey Sagal took over the show's starring position for the rest of the series' run. Bridget finds her popularity waning because of her exclusive, long distance relationship with Donny, while Kerry's social status skyrockets because of her relationship with Kyle.
But Bridget's eyes begin to stray when she meets Damien (Paul Wesley) – a sexy new boy at school.
Meanwhile, as she waits for the results of her pregnancy test, Cate is stunned and angry when Paul, Bridget, Kerry and Rory seem more concerned about how the baby could disrupt their lives than the blessed event itself.
In fact, the only support Cate seems to be getting is from her nosy neighbors, the Doyles, who share a well-kept secret about their own family – namely, all their children are adopted.
Nick Sharpe asks Cate to find the last article Paul wrote so the newspaper can publish it in his memory.
Upset, Donny hitchhikes all the way to the Hennessys in the back of a pig truck to win Bridget back; however, Bridget has still not broken up with her other boyfriend, Damien.
Cate teaches sex education at Bridget's school and gets suspicious when she reads a submission where a girl's older boyfriend was coming from Maryland and she felt pressured to have sex.
Bridget tries to cover it up by saying that this was a girl from Maryland, Lara O'Neal (which turned out to be made-up; Bridget herself was the one who wrote the question).
It's been two weeks since Paul died, and the kids are going back to school for the first time.
Bridget jumps right back into her social circle and begins planning the upcoming dance while Kerry refuses to allow herself to feel anything but sad, and feels worse when Kyle declares his love for her believing he's only saying it to try and make her feel better.
