In a clip from Thursday's Season 2 premiere, Jenna (Ashley Rickards) is caught up in the holiday spirit following the winter dance that saw her pick Jake(Brett Davern)over Matty(Beau Mirchoff) but still weighing how to handle the confirmation that her mother, Lacey (Nikki Deloach) penned the damaging letter that helped change her life.
