Summer is over and school is back in session! Continuing
right where Volume Five left off, "Secret Life of the American
Teenager: Volume Six" is made up of the final twelve episodes
of the third season of this ABC Family hit. This show just
keeps dishing it out. The six volume opens up with Adrian
(Francia Raisa) and Ben (Kenny Baumann), newly expectant
parents, trying to hammer out exactly what their relationship
is. At first, they agree to be friends, in the hopes that
one day it may lead to something more. Ben gives her a $50,000
friendship ring which he got from his stepmother. But as
Adrian's due date gets closer, the pair began to realize
their feelings for each other, prompting them to get engaged.
Instead of a big wedding, Ben's father buys the young couple
a condo to raise their daughter in. Meanwhile, Grant (Grant
Harvey) and Grace (Megan Park) contemplate taking their
relationship to a new level. Ashley(India Eisley) opts to
do home-schooling because of her anti-social behavior, and
meets a fellow anti-socialite to bond with. Amy and her
baby daddy, Ricky (Daren Kagasoff) are dating (finally!).
Amy, much more mature from her adventures in New York during
the beginning of the season, tells Ricky that if he refrains
from sleeping with other girls, then they could make their
To everyone's surprise (including his own), Ricky does.
But the never-ending competition between Amy and Adrian
throws tension into show, causing Amy to attempt to seduce
Ricky, unknowingly, in front of her father, and then spontaneously
propose to him when she learns of Ben and Adrian's wedding.
The competition climaxes as Amy and Grace organize a baby
show in Adrian's honor. Because Adrian doesn't have many
friends, they are unsure of who to invite. Adrian takes
offense and the fight snowballs from just between Amy and
Adrian to between Amy, Adrian, Grace, Ben, Ricky, their
boss, and Ben's and Amy's fathers. After an explosive secret-revealing
session in the hallway at school, Ben apologizes to Amy
and the girls apologize to eachother. The shower is a success
and the competition seems to be over. But, as this show
is so good at, just when you think it's over, you are smacked
in the face with a shocker -- and in this case, it's a heartbreaker..
