Jenna Confronts And Then Undresses Her Stalker on 'Awkward' (VIDEO)

'Awkward' - 'Jenna Lives'It was a quiet week on 'Awkward' (Tue., 11PM ET on MTV), at least as far as Jenna's situation with Matty goes. We don't mind a slow burn on that front, though, when we get fun diversions like Jenna's is-he-or-isn't-he stalker.

We have a feeling we haven't seen the last of the creepy guy who feigned innocence, and insisted Jenna Lives was the name of his band.

He was selling t-shirts with this emblazoned on the front of them, which Jenna was understandably upset by. She's still trying to live down the fact that everyone thinks she attempted suicide. High school's hard enough already.

After assaulting him in the halls, Jenna bonded with a girl she thought was dating Matty during detention, and ultimately apologized to the creepy guy with the t-shirt. That's when the audience found out she'd been right all along. His locker was filled with her image, so he's totally a stalker.

We did enjoy Jenna's awkward attempt to explain to Matty that she never tried to commit suicide and that she wasn't this weird girl ... all the while coming across like a total weirdo. It's just a shame her blinders are on to Jake, who seems to genuinely be into her and even looks willing to "go public" with her.

'Awkward' wears it's teenage awkwardness with so much more subtlety than 'The Hard Times of RJ Berger' did. Even though both are high school sitcoms about outsiders trying to find their way, 'Awkward' just feels leagues above what 'Berger' was doing. It's easy to see why MTV is backing the new kid with a season renewal for 'Awkward,' while axing 'Berger' after two seasons.
