The pair have mostly seperate classes because Kenzie is in mostly AP ones but meet up at lunch and talk about their teachers and how there is always the one who doesn't see the first day as syllabus day but as a learning day and assigns homework and that is usually the math teacher.

Rory comes up to her and asks what's going on, Kenzie hands Rory her phone and lets her read it. Rory then reads the story and can understand why Kenzie is nervous, it's about Christian cheating on her in Princeton, the photo is of him hugging some girl. Rory tells Kenzie not to worry, he is simply hugging her, that could mean that she is just a friend. Evan probably has hugged Madi before. Kenzie tells her she is still nervous and tells her how Christian went from Charlotte, to Bree to her, all starting out simply as friends and then more. Rory tells her that Evan was with two girls before she and him got together and to try not to worry about it. Kenzie goes home that night and calls Christian.

Rory then shows her the story on her phone. It has a picture of Kenzie exiting Planned Parenthood and says that she had an abortion. Kenzie stares at it before looking to Rory. Rory tells her she doesn't judge but Kenzie tells her she went there to get an IUD and have a checkup, it's covered by her parents' insurance plan and she didn't have to pay much out of pocket. Rory acknowledges it and Kenzie explains it is the most effective birth control method, her mom was a teen mom and despite how much she loved Hope, she didn't get to follow her dreams, she wanted to make sure that didn't happen. Rory nods and tells her to just ignore it then. Kenzie returns home from school to see her parents waiting for her. Kenzie is confused and James asks why there is a story online about her getting an abortion and a charge to her credit card from Planned Parenthood. Kenzie tells them she didn't go there to get an abortion and that she isn't pregnant. Starr asks why she was at a Planned Parenthood and Kenzie hesitates, not wanting her dad to hear it but tells them she was getting an IUD. Both her parents are shocked and James accuses Christian of pressuring her because he is two years older. Kenzie explains that Christian has nothing to do with this. She decided to be smart. She then brings up how Starr got pregnant when she was a teenager with Hope and didn't get the opportunity to go to college. She was being responsible and wanted to make sure that won't happen to her since an IUD has a 99% effective rate and other methods can fail. James is still upset but Starr starts to see where she is coming from. Kenzie then tells them if they are so upset about it, she can go back and have it removed and she can go back to just being the perfect brainiac who doesn't feel emotions or have a boyfriend. Kenzie then goes to her room to do homework. Starr later goes to her room to talk to Kenzie. She tells her she is happy she is being responsible but also tells her that an IUD doesn't protect against STDs. Kenzie tells her she knows that, and condoms protect against that but since she and Christian were each other's firsts, it's not as big of an issue as it could be. Starr then asks if she's sure and Kenzie tells her she is. Starr then tells her while she is being smart, it would have been best if she talked to her about it first. Kenzie tells her she knew if she told her, she would tell James and it's not exactly something anyone wants their dad knowing. She is almost an adult and can make her own decisions while he still sees her as a five-year-old kid that needs to be protected from anything. Starr tells her while she can see that, please come to her in the future and Kenzie agrees
13.07 You, The Room & The Devil On Your Shoulder At school, Rory asks Kenzie what happened when her parents saw the post.

They were just happy she is straight. She then asks if she told Christian yet and Kenzie tells her she will the next time he comes to visit. That night Kenzie is doing homework when she gets a call from Christian asking why he just got emailed a link to Raw. Real. claiming that she had an abortion. Kenzie sighs and before she can say anything Christian asks her if she's pregnant and if she is they can handle it together. Kenzie then tells him that she isn't pregnant and explains that she went there to get an IUD. Christian is confused and Kenzie explains what an IUD is and tells him that for a genius, he can be pretty stupid. Christian tells her not to blame him, but the American public education system and it lacking comprehensive sex ed. The pair talk for a little longer before hanging up.
