"Homecoming Out" is the second episode of the MTV's comedy series Faking It. The episode aired on the MTV in the United States on April 29, 2014. The episode primarily focuses on Karma (Katie Stevens) and Amy (Rita Volk) carrying on their fake lesbian relationship, preparing for the Homecoming as they have been elected Homecoming Queens. They face some obstacles on the way, when Lauren (Bailey Buntain) blackmails Amy to switch rooms or she will tell her mum about Amy being a 'lesbian'. Whereas Karma continues her secret affair with Liam (Gregg Sulkin), and they both plan to take it to the next level.
The episode starts with Karma and Liam making out, he takes off his shirt and they continue to kiss until it cuts off to Karma being waken by her alarm in bed realising it was just a dream. She turns around and notices Amy's in bed with her, they make out only for Amy to wake up, and realises it was a dream. She throws her clock towards the door where Lauren is standing. Lauren says she is measuring and found out that her room is smaller than Amy's, she says unless they switch rooms she will tell Amy's mum that she is a Lesbian. At the dining table, everyone is talking, Lauren says she and Tommy were beaten for homecoming royalty by two Lesbians. Amy's mom and Lauren's father are not fascinated by it. Then, Lauren remarks she and Amy will be switching rooms to which Amy nods before giving Lauren a death look.
Amy is at Karma's house and is upset that Lauren is threatening to tell her mum she is a lesbian, therefore freaking out and tells Karma their fake relationship has to be put to an end to which Karma disagrees. Amy asks Karma whether pretending to be girlfriends doesn't feel weird, Karma jokes if she was 'that bad of a kisser' to which Amy responds as if it felt like kissing her sister. On the contrary, Karma complements Amy saying she was great. Karma's parents interrupt and come in, Amy finds out that Karma has told them about their 'relationship'.
Lauren is furious with Shane (Michael J. Willett) as he makes her pay $50 for Homecoming tickets because she's bringing opposite sex as her date, hence the Homecoming's theme is 'Homecoming Out' thus if you bring a same sex date you go in for free. Shane then asks whether Liam is going with him and Karma and Amy show up at school.
Karma then appears in Liam's art studio and he suggests they should end their affair so that he won't stand in the way of her and Amy but she disagrees and says they are in an open relationship. They make out, but are interrupted by the bell. Karma tells Amy if things go good between her and Liam, they might have sex soon which doesn't thrill Amy. They lay on Amy's bed, discussing this. Amy's mum barges into the room, asking what are they doing to which the girls respond they're talking about the Homecoming and their (boy) dates which excites Amy's mum, however now Amy needs to find herself a 'date' for her mum to see, to her dismay.
Amy asks Shane to pretend to be her date, so that she can introduce him to her mum and let her take a couple of pictures of Amy and Shane, to avoid Farrah finding out about her and Karma. She tells him to dress 'butch', to make it believable. Karma and Liam are once again in the art studio, making out, Liam wants to move forward by unbuckling her belt but she stops him, unsure. They discuss it and carry on with the intent of having sex. However, they are interrupted by other students entering the studio.
Shane arrives at Amy's house dressed like a cowboy, Amy's mum is enchanted by him, calling Shane 'cute'. When Farrah is about to take the photo, she tells Amy she got her first reporting assignment - on the 'lesbian homecoming Queens', dropping both Shane and Amy's jaws. Amy lets Karma know, while Karma tells Amy she's about to have sex with Liam in the back of his car. Amy doesn't seem thrilled at the thought. She plans to stop her mum by stabbing her mum van's tires but Farrah gets away with a second van much to Amy's dismay.
Meanwhile in Liam's car, Karma and Liam are about to have sex to which both show excitement until she asks him 'How long has he been wanting to do this' to which he responds with 'What? Have sex with a lesbian?'. Realizing he's only into her because of her (fake) sexuality, she refuses and goes back to the dance.
At the dance, Lauren tries to fool her step-mum (only for her own advantage, otherwise she won't get Amy's room) so that she won't find out about Amy and Karma's (fake) 'relationship'. Unluckily, Farrah sees a tiara on Karma she asks her where is her adorable girlfriend; forcing Amy to 'come out' to her mum leaving her speechless. Amy tells Lauren to enjoy her 'tiny bedroom' as she leaves to dance with Karma.
While the couples dance, Liam opens up to Shane about what happened with Karma without confessing who the girl is, feeling down about getting rejected by her. When Amy asks Karma how the sex was, Karma comes clean about not losing her virginity and admits Amy was right, Liam was only attracted to her because he believes she's a lesbian. Karma then decides to make Liam fall in love with her, leaving Amy upset.
