Storyline

With the story taking a chronological step back, Stanley's excitement toward asking Sydney to homecoming leads to the startling discovery of her telekinetic power. Though his father's return costs him in physical mistreatment, Stan's main concern becomes appointing himself Sydney's mentoring figure to help her understand how her power works. Meanwhile, Liam would like Syd and Maggie to try speaking to each other decently for a change. Written by statmanjeff

Stanley Barber: And you wanna know something that's even more...
