Kevin and Jemma’s relationship grew stronger one month before the events of the flashback, when he began having breakfast with her father. In front of Jake, he also told her he loved her, which made him disgusted.
Jake almost got into a confrontation with another teenager who was picking on Kevin when the two went to play basketball. Jake was then approached by a pair of police officers who asked him for identification before tossing him to the ground and assaulting him before arresting him.
