18 Of The Darkest Moments In Comedy TV Shows
And when Shawn tried to help out a girl who was being abused
Episode: “Dangerous Secret”
When we learned that Shawn had a girl staying with him in his trailer at the time, we totally assumed that they were more than friends. But when Shawn finally fessed up about Claire being constantly abused by her dad, our hearts dropped. It turned out that he was protecting her the entire time, and they felt they couldn’t go to the police because it was very unlikely that they’d be taken seriously.
In the episode, Cory insists that Shawn go to the police. However, it’s revealed that Claire is self-blaming and would rather lie to the police to protect her dad. What’s even worse is that we see her reappear once again with an awful black eye… It’s a lot to take in for a show that’s usually so lighthearted, but we can at least take comfort in the fact that Claire was able to safely travel to her aunt’s house while her dad got help.
