American Vandal Clean Up Recap Season 1 Episode 8
The link Peter Maldonado showed Dylan Maxwell at the end of episode seven was of Mack taking her top off for some guy on “Twitch,” an online gaming forum. As soon as she does so, Dylan walks in proving they were both at Mack’s house, thus confirming both their alibis.
Dylan gets reinstated after they show this video to the school board and he returns to school as a celebrity.
Dylan confronts Alex Trimboli for lying about DYlan “drawing the dicks” and threatens that Alex has something coming to him, then walks away. But, Dylan walks right back, throws his pizza on the ground and says that “that day is today.”
Dylan addresses that he’s a new student that brings not one, but an extra pencil to class, and answers questions on the board. Later, Dylan learns that he wasn’t accepted to Boulder and has to face Mrs. Shapiro without his acceptance letter, something he wanted to desperately throw in her face.
Mack then goes to Dylan’s house, says sorry for everything, but isn’t wanting to get back together.
To boost his moral, Dylan goes to the prom after party and is welcomed with tremendous love from the senior class, or so he thinks. The students put American Vandal on at the party and Dylan sees, for the first time, the documentary, and watches all the kids who are now praising him, saying that Dylan is the dumbest person they’ve ever met.
The tone of the documentary seems to be heading for an abrupt conclusion, but Ming blacks out after funneling a six-pack.
Christa yells for someone who knows CPR, Ming is saved, but Sam realizes something: Christa’s alibi is ruined because she claimed she had CPR certification during the time of the vandalism.
They call the place that keeps the record of her certification and they have one on record, but under the camp counselor known as Van Delorey, the man in season one Christa hooked up with at camp.
After graduation, Peter finally gets to sit down with Christa and present his theory that she and Van drew the dicks because Rafferty, one of the supposed targeted cars, was the subject to her complaint after Rafferty had one of his players tackle her for the pep rally protest that caused the team to forfeit.
When all this is said and done, Dylan just gets arrested for being filmed drawing a dick in Ms. Shapiro’s driveway and “who drew the dicks?” is not confirmed. Hopefully, this is a cliffhanger for season two.
