In Episode 6, Claire tells Eric: “My entire life gone… for you.” While Claire had Eric as her only option to add some spice in her life, Eric has his whole life in front of him. She didn’t even think about how he would deal with the trauma. Isn’t that a form of emotional and sexual abuse? The next episode may tell us how the consequences shape up for Claire but for now, many fans are worried she might end up being pregnant.
Episode 6 Recap: What happened in Eric and Claire’s life?
Episode 6 of ‘A Teacher’ begins with the unfathomable words: “Matt, I’m having an affair… I’m sleeping with my student.” Claire Wilson (Kate Mara) confesses what she did to her husband and all hell breaks loose.
As bizarre as it sounds, Matt offers his support to her instead of getting angry. His reason: “Because I love you… But this is 10 years. You f**ked up real bad. We’re gonna get a lawyer and therapy, we can get past this.” Does he really love her or is just scared of cutting a 10-year-long relationship that he built for so long? Despite all his support, Claire doesn’t seem to care about Matt Nicholas (Ashley Zukerman) and flees with Eric Walker (Nick Robinson) again.
More than two lovers eloping the scene – it seems like a classic case of kidnapping. The two land up in a motel and have sex. It seems quite bizarre that even after cops land up at Eric’s home, there is no surveillance on them and they can just get away like that. During their intercourse, Claire dominates him and asks him to look right into her eyes. The next morning, Eric is gone. While Eric returns to his mom, Claire steps foot into a police station. Will she turn herself in and be charged with a sex crime?
Episode 7 Predictions: What to expect from the next episode?
After Episode 6 ended on a cliffhanger, fans can’t wait to see what will happen in the new episode. Will Claire be arrested and plead guilty to the sex crime? How will that affect Eric’s life and will he forget her soon or still be stuck with her memories? The summary reads: “Eric tries to move on, but the fallout from the affair continues to resurface in unexpected ways.”
How will Eric cope up after Claire is gone?
It’s not easy for Eric to forget what happened in his life and he wouldn’t want to open up with anyone after the public spectacle. Will that scar his mind forever? Will he go for therapy or resort to drugs with his friends?
Eric may find a new love interest
After Claire is gone, will Eric find a rebound and quickly move on to get rid of Claire’s memories? After his relationship with the teacher, will he be emotionally and sexually available? Before Eric and Claire hooked up on Homecoming night, Eric was with Alison Miller (Camila Perez). There is a chance he could go back to her.
Will Claire be bailed out?
In the last episode, Claire parks her car outside a police station, presumably, to turn herself in. Of course, she will be taken behind the bars but will her husband, Matt Nicholas (Ashley Zukerman) – who has been extra supportive – bail her out? Moreover, he can also seek help from Claire’s brother, Nate Wilson (Adam David Thompson), an ex-military and police officer.
