Recap For Rebel
Previously on Rebel, we saw Cruz planning to steal his wife’s heart valve while Benji came causing a ruckus at the hospital with Lana in. While he confesses he didn’t hire Angela, a call from Cruz’s residence comes to Rebel telling her about the plan. Rebel advises Cruz not to go for it, and the same to Misha. Benji offers to help, only for Cruz to refuse it. Ziggie hopes to track down Duncan. She also confesses to Rebel about facing suspension after a brawl. A suspension related to race. This leads Rebel to go ahead and confront the director at the school. Ziggie and Cassidy and most of the students join in too.
Rebel asks questions about only black and Latino students getting punishment and manages to reverse the director’s decision. Furthermore asking him for a favor to make him run on the race as long as she can track Duncan down. Lana, on the other hand, takes help from Benji to track down Angela. Cruz is hell-bent on getting that valve as he plans to sell the house. On the other hand, Luke, who was initially identified in the court, connects with Benji, who intends to keep him on the case.
At the race, the director manages to win for Rebel with Ziggie standing up and urging anyone to come ahead revolving around the Stonemore Medicals. While Rebel doesn’t get hands-on Duncan, a man comes ahead to confess his husband works there and is ready to help. This leads Rebel to go to Cruz to stop him from digging his wife and going through a mess again. Furthermore, Cruz’s daughter reveals she is pregnant, with everyone happy in the end.
