This episode opens with Nanako being intentionally tripped at lunch at school while surrounded by gossiping assholes. Fukiko and her posse appear and she helps Nanako up, telling her to pull through quietly enough that nobody else can hear it.
Nanako's dad catches on that something's wrong at school and asks Nanako about it, but she tries to cope on her own. Which I understand as someone who has tended to try to tackle things alone and consciously try to avoid that.
Nanako gets some gym clothes from Kaoru and we continue to see that Kaoru's more sick than she lets on in front of other people. This episode's title, "Lost and Alone", applies to her as much as Nanako.
After school, a trio of seniors/former Sorority candidates who think Nanako cheated into the Sorority show how much more honorable they are by ganging up on one freshman and slapping her around.
Nanako finds Fukiko doing the sport of choice for rich chicks whose schoolmates worship them in yuri.
And there's a too-long flashback to what happened just earlier this episode between Nanako and Tomoko and Nanako and the seniors. It's the one lazy part of an otherwise strong episode.
Then Nanako runs into Takehiko and he helps her cheer up as someone completely outside the fish bowl of high school.
And the next episode is Rei-heavy, yay!
