In the clip, Mr. Carpenter and Juliet have an (overly intimate) chat in an (improbably dark) corridor, where they appear to be discussing a classroom conflict in which Mr. Carpenter defends Juliet. (If we know Juliet, this probably occurs after Juliet shivs one of her classmates for trying to steal her drugs, but no matter.) "Everyone deserves a fresh start," he says. Aww — could Juliet really be turning over a new leaf?
Producers have said that the relationship between Mr. Carpenter and Juliet won't go down the traditional hot-young-teacher-meets-promiscuous-student road, but there still appears to be some chemistry between the two, which has us thoroughly intrigued by where the relationship is headed.
