When Jay's acne goes from bad to worse, he is prescribed a powerful medication that comes with some serious side effects. Regardless, he's convinced it'll all be worth it if clear skin is on the horizon. Meanwhile, eighth grade isn't going exactly as planned.

Don't worry, though... everything is going to be a-okay. Right?
