Blanche starts dating a much older man named Fidel Santiago. Things go well at first. But then Fidel starts seeing Sophia. He says he cares about them and wants to see both women. This starts a feud between Sophia and Blanche. Meanwhile, Dorothy is teaching history for an adult education class for people who never got their high school diplomas. Rose seems interested. And we later find out it’s because she never graduated from high school. She was in the kissing booth and caught a severe case of mono and slept day-and-night right through her high school graduation. Rose said that she never had the courage to get her diploma but does now that Dorothy is teaching the class. Rose is doing well in every subject except history. She reveals the reason for this is that the Germans were behind a plot to teach misinformation to America’s youth so that America’s youth would be really stupid when the Germans invaded. St. Olaf was the first town chosen for their experiment.
In fact, Rose’s history teacher was none other than Adolf Hitler using a phony name. Rose lists his fake name as the leader of the Third Reich on a test. When Dorothy realizes that she actually got the question right, Rose will now pass her test and become a high school graduate. The fight between Sophia and Blanche is getting worse. Fidel dies, and they each feel they’re to blame by running him ragged. At his funeral, it’s reveal that Fidel had around a dozen girlfriends. Sophia calls him a bum. But also says that there was another side to him. He made her feel younger and desirable again. He may be a scoundrel, but she vows to smile whenever she thinks of him. The two make up and forgive each other. And Blanche says if she could do it again, she’d let Sophia have Fidel.
