Plot Synopsis

This one-hour drama tells the story of high school teenager Amy Juergens, her friends and family, as they deal with her unexpected pregnancy. At the start of Season 5, Ricky and Amy decided to run off together to escape all the drama at home with Anne's recent announcement that she's gay and Ashley's return home. Meanwhile, Ben struggled with the knowledge that he may have contributed to burning down Dylan's school. And, Adrian graduated, looking forward to college, while Grace made some difficult decisions about her relationships. SECRET LIFE returned for its final episodes on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 8/9c, following an all-day marathon from 11am-8pm ET/PT. In that night's all-new episode, Amy and Ricky continued planning their wedding -- at a thrift store -- and Adrian thought the dress reflected her feelings about getting married. Kathy was conflicted about going back home after having the baby, and Ethan begged his parents to let him fly to Texas with her to ask Kathy's parents if she can stay. Plus, George told Anne about seeing David with biological children, which makes her question Robie's paternity.
