A Teacher Episode 8 Spoilers 

It seems like Claire will finally be released from prison in the next episode. Since Sandy has already told Eric about this eventuality, we suspect that he will try to get in touch with her once again. After all, at the end of episode 7, he voices that he still misses her.  On the other hand, it is more than likely that Claire will be ostracised once she becomes a part of society again. Her future prospects are zero, as no school will hire a teacher with her past. Plus, even though Matt has agreed to support her through the ordeal, their marriage will be in shambles. Furthermore, she will not be looked at favorably by members of the community. It will be very difficult for her to cope with her reality.

A Teacher Episode 7 Recap

Eric is now in college and is rushing for Omega Kappa Beta. Nonetheless, he is known on campus as the guy that slept with his teacher. Everyone broaches the topic with him, even the girl that he hooks up with at a party. The next day, Cody and Eric talk about Claire over lunch.

The student states that Claire could have been spared from prison if he hadn’t convinced her to skip town with him that day. Cody feels as though everyone has made a really big deal out of the situation for no reason. Eric goes home for dinner, and Sandy tells him that Claire will be released from prison soon. She also asks him if he has started therapy yet, but he doesn’t want to talk about the whole ordeal and leaves. 

Then, Eric gets in touch with the same girl from the party. She apologizes to him for being insensitive before and states that she wants to take things slow since he is a victim. But he gets pissed off and tells her that she is simply his booty call. The student then goes on a drive with his fraternity bros and climbs onto the hood of the car for an adrenaline rush. He falls and sustains minor injuries.

Later, the pledges are finally initiated into the fraternity. Karen, a stripper, is called that night. She gives Eric a lap dance and brings up his past yet again. She dirty talks by saying that she will give him detention, but he gets triggered and leaves. Back at his dorm, he meets a boy named Micah who can’t get into his own room. The two get to talking and Micah offers Eric shrooms. He accepts, and they go outside. In the end, Eric states that he still misses Claire a lot.
