ABC Family Just about every teenager at one time or another feels like an outsider, as if nobody in the world understands them, especially their parents. In the series finale, Amy graduates from high school and reminisces, pondering over her relationships with Ricky and Ben. The Secret Life of the American Teenager (often shortened to Secret Life) is a television series created by Brenda Hampton.
Daren Kagasoff as Ricky gave an award-winning performance as a teenager who finally is forced to come to terms with the sexual and physical abuse put on his shoulders by his father Bob who has been harassing Ricky for the last two episodes. Adrian (Francia Raisa) is the first to reach out to Ricky, and he does start to break down and explain why he acts the way he does from his horrible childhood.
George (Mark Derwin) and Anne (Molly Ringwald) also are concerned about Ricky’s father Bob with each handling the situation in their own way. As Ricky goes to see Adrian (not sure of why he was there to see her), she says she’s been trying to call him. Also on the show, Ashley (India Easley) tries to take a job as a cocktail waitress with her fake ID to make money for the family, but her father catches her. Meanwhile, Amy seems to be pushing an over-bearing Ben (Ken Baumann) away, wanting to do the baby stuff, such as finding out if the baby is a girl or boy, without him. On the previews for next week, it looks like Amy will be pushing Ben even further away as Ricky becomes more involved.
As the last day of school begins, Amy reveals to Lauren and Madison that she thinks that John has been saying "ring!" over and over.
Ricky runs back to Grant High School after forgetting something, it is a small velvet box for jewelry. Ben meets up with Adrian, and takes her to Poppi's Tacos for old time's sake before the ceremony. His speech is telling everyone about his years of child abuse at the hands of his father, and about how thankful he is to have his foster parents, Margaret and Shakur, and Nora, his birth mother, in his lives. This was the last appearance of Jesse and Peter as they never appear again after this episode. An ABC Family original series, The Secret Life of the American Teenager centers on the topic of teen pregnancy.
Anne's off to an interview again, except this time it's with that cute architect, David, she met at the hot dog stand.
We find the teen mom herself wandering the halls at Grant High, because George forgot to pick her up after school. Over at the butcher shop, sheltered Ben is getting a rude awakening from Bunny, the ruthless manager.


Meanwhile, at the Dairy Shack, Jack confronts Duncan about the fake mugging and theft of the candy money and Jack's truck. As for Amy, after months of stress, everything aligns just right and she finally realizes maybe she can keep the baby after all. Meanwhile, Grace thinks about what Jack means to her; and Adrian's spirits are lifted by a surprising visitor. Adrian begs her father Ruben (Philip-Anthony Rodriguez), the police officer, to help get Bob back off the streets. He tells them the truth about his sexual abuse, wishing he could be a Christian like them but instead feels cheated because when he was being abused, his prayers weren’t answered for his father to leave him alone.
He told her parents he loves her, but to her face, he can’t say the words when she tells him she loves him. Bowman says he does — telling Ricky the very sad story about how his brother was sexually abused by a neighbor and he didn’t find out about it until his brother committed suicide and told everyone in the note. Thanks to a tip from Jack (Greg Finley), the police caught Ricky’s father with drugs, meaning he violated his parole and will be going back to prison.
She is trying so hard to keep her family together — helping her sister and not wanting her parents to divorce.
I don’t tune in for the acting usually, but he was absolutely fantastic in this past episode.
Jack (preparing his introduction, as mentioned above), Ricky, memorizing his speech as valedictorian, and Adrian, plotting to get one last kiss from Ricky.
Jack, who's hanging out with Grant, gets the information and passes it on to Grace, who hears it from Grant as well. Then the principal announces Ricky, who also has won a special award in addition to valedictorian. He also thanks Amy, for finally allowing him to love a person, and then asks her to come up onstage. Amy and Ricky go together, Ben and Henry go together, Griffin and Peter (along with a new guy who wants to take Griffin away from Peter) are there together, Grace and Daniel are there, Jack is there alone, Alice is there alone, and Adrian is there with Omar.
Band geek Amy discovers that she's pregnant after a one-night stand with Ricky Underwood, the school's player. A jealous George decides to make up a little white lie and tell her he's learned that David is both gay and deaf in one ear from a figure-skating injury. She's wandering sadly in a baby shop, where the kind clerk gives her a pair of baby overalls -- which is hard, because Amy knows she's not keeping him. She apologizes for the first interview and figures out that George was lying about David being gay and deaf.


The series goes an additional layer deep by dealing with the issue of teen pregnancy and the fallout among the teens and their friends. The show was renewed for a second season consisting of 24 episodes on February 9, 2009, which are expected to begin airing on June 22, 2009. Lauren advises Amy not to be too hasty, and gives several possible things that John could've been talking about.
Adrian hears it somehow (probably from Grace), and tells Ricky not to propose to Amy, which Ricky refuses.
Ricky kisses Adrian one last time, and Adrian discovers that she's free, and that she doesn't love Ricky anymore.
As the camera pulls away, we get a clear look of the lake and of Jack kissing Grace and Ricky kissing Amy. Anne should know better than to believe him, except that she sees a pair of skates hanging on David's wall and makes a major fool out of herself, shouting at the (non-deaf, non-gay) guy about her personal life and her support for the gay community. The first season focuses on the relationships between families and friends and how they deal with the unexpected teenage pregnancy of character Amy Juergens, who is portrayed by Shailene Woodley.
Adrian, who is sitting by Jack, tries to stand up to stop him, but Jack reaches out and holds Adrian down.
Then Adrian and Grace offer her a lift, but Amy's feeling sorry for herself and doesn't want to hang with anyone. Grace and Jack tell her they've gotten her a job in the church's day care center, where she can keep her son during school hours.
In the second season, Amy Juergens must deal with juggling motherhood and high school, while her family and friends experience relationship challenges of their own. Bowman tells Ricky he believes in him and will ALWAYS be there for him if he needs to talk, without judgment. But he tells her that it was disrespectful to everyone involved, and leaves with Daniel, who is wary of his ex-girlfriend (who is at the party) named Raven. Adrian is about to get dressed, with Henry asking Jack if he can get a ride, but he refuses by saying there's no room before leaving.
When Amy finally gets Anne over to her side as well, it looks like this baby has just found a new home: with his mother.
Now that Ben has just as much (or as little) money as Ricky, looks like he's lost that upper hand he just invented.
