In My Body Is A Cage (1), Eli is talking to Adam at his locker. Eli keeps referring to Clare coming down the hall, but Adam doesn't understand and he rants about cute girls in his ballroom dancing class. Clare finally comes up to them and criticizes Eli's work for English class (Eli had written about a prostitute named Clara Edwin). When she leaves, Adam says he is disgusted by the way they talk to each other but Eli says (with a smirk) that he finds it entertaining. Eli brings up ballroom class again, and asks Adam which girls he finds cute. When Adam says Bianca, Eli is quick to disagree, offering several negatives about her. He then walks away. Later, after an accident (Adam got his period, but when he went to get out tampons from his locker, he knocked into Clare and they spilled on the floor. Fitz and Owen begin to tease him, but then he hands them to Clare and pretends to think it's gross. She plays along but is clearly confused.), Adam walks up to Eli and Clare who are talking on a bench about the tampon incident. When Adam begins to explain, Eli says he doesn't have to, but Adam decides to tell them that he is a FTM transgender. They are clearly a little awkward about it (shown by Eli's comment after a long awkward silence, "Cooool.") but they accept him for it and Eli even makes a joke about it, saying "Hold the phone, does that mean I can't let one rip in front of you?" to which Adam replied "I would br insulted if you didn't."

In My Body Is A Cage (2), Adam is being walked down the hall by a teacher and being gawked at. The teacher allows him to sit down with Clare and Eli, who seem to not have a problem with Adam being transgendered. Adam informs Clare and Eli that his family has never really accepted him and that he's going to have to change back to "Gracie" during his grandmother's visit. After class, "Gracie" is sitting outside, lighting a hair clip with a lighter and burning himself when Clare walks by and sees what "Gracie" is doing. "Gracie" quickly throws the clip on the table and presses her hand against her newly acquired burn mark. "Gracie" says that if she's Gracie, everything's easier. Clare comforts her and says that she doesn't have to be Gracie if it doesn't make her happy and that everyone has to change, not him. Clare escorts Gracie, now deciding to go back to Adam, back inside. Later, Adam is lighting a bonfire with Eli and Clare when Drew, along with Mrs. and Mr. Torres, appear.

The next day, Clare is excited about the kiss, but Eli ignores her, so Clare talks to her teacher, who said that a lack of communication caused the star crossed lover's death. Eli ignores Clare and convinces her that he isn't interested in her and that he is sorry that he led her on when Clare confronts him When Clare walks away upset, Eli looks like he is sad which makes us believe he really didn't mean to tell Clare that and that there is a reason why he is deneing his love for her.

Clare is at the Grundy’s with her parents, who haven’t stopped fighting the entire time. They also don’t want Clare to go out with Eli after the banquet because they need to ‘talk’ do her. I assume this talk starts with a ‘d’ and ends in ‘vorce’. Clare wins the award she was nominated for, but her parents don’t even notice because they’re too busy being mad at each other.

Clare's mother then asks if Eli would like to thank the Lord for the wonderful meal they're about to eat, because he's the houseguest. Eli then proceeds to say something, but Clare cuts him off, yet again, and says he's an athiest. Things get awkward at the dinner table and Eli gives Clare a dirty look. The next day at school, Clare comes to school totally different. Her hair is straightened and part of her hair is dyed black. She's wearing a lot of makeup and is wearing clothing that is the complete opposite of what she usually wears. She greets Eli and tells him that he was cute last night, and after a few moments Eli turns his head and sees a transformed Clare, and in disgust, asks her "Who are you?"

He tells her he doesn't understand why she's doing what she's doing, and Clare confesses that she's scared. She's scared that her parents will tell her that they're getting a divorce and there's nothing she can do about it. Eli questions why she used him in order to stop the divorce, and Clare says that they'll both have something in common when they're mad at her instead of each other.

He tells her if she ever wants to talk, he'll be there for her. Later, Clare meets up with Eli. She expresses to him that her parents are getting a divorce, and he "suggests" that maybe she can stay in the house and her parents can go back and forth to stay with her, as his friend did. Clare takes this into consideration. At home, she proposes this idea to her parents, and her parents don't like the idea. This infuriates Clare, and she storms out and goes to Little Miss Steaks, where she meets Eli and someone she didn't expect to see, his parents. Clare tells them she couldn't handle being around her parents, and his parents make her the offer of staying at their house for awhile. She asks if there's a guest room, and Eli's father says no - she'd be staying in Eli's room. He says "We've been trying to get a girl in Eli's room for awhole now."

Eli confesses that him and Julia had sex when she stayed at their house, and Clare tells him she doesn't want to have sex with him. Eli tells her that he doesn't like it that she doesn't want to have sex with him, but it's something he'll have to deal with. Clare thinks their opposites, and that they'll end up like her parents, and Eli says "we're not your parents." Clare then leaves. The next day at school, Clare is with her religious group, and Clare tells them all that her parents are getting a divorce, and while saying this, Eli comes in the room and listens to their discussion. Clare is bedazzled as to why Jesus would do this to her, and her friend tells her that it's part of Jesus' plan, which Eli says sucks. Clare later runs out crying, saying she's losing everything she loves. Eli tells her that he'll be there for her. Afterwards, Clare comes home and her mother wants her to sort through some things, and while doing so they come across a picture of Clare, Darcy and their father at a skiing trip in Maine. Clare then goes to Eli's house, and tells her that she wants to spend the night with him. Eli knows this isn't who Clare is and he tries to talk her home, but she refuses, saying "I don't know who I am!" Clare tries to hold Eli's hands, but he jerks back. This confuses Clare. Saddened and hurt, she leaves, which leaves Eli and Clare's relationship in question.

In Umbrella Part 2, Clare is walking to her locker where she sees Eli. She is upset about what happened the day before and refuses to talk to him. She is mad that he rejected her after she threw herself at him, and Eli says he only did so because of her faith. After a heated arguement, Clare requests for her watch back. Eli says he left it at home which infuriates Clare. Clare is later seen talking with Adam about how she's going to go to Eli's house during lunch to try and get her Father's watch back, and she wants Adam to tag along. During lunch, she is at Eli's doorsteps and rings the doorbell, and a few seconds later, Adam shows up to help her out. After getting past Mr. Goldsworthy, Adam and Clare try to get into Eli's room, although they don't know his combination. After an unsuccessful try, Adam suggests Clare tries "22-04-09", which was the date of Julia's death. Unsure, Clare tries it, and is astonished that the combination worked. They both go into Eli's room and discover it's a complete mess. Clare then takes it upon herself to clean out Eli's locker. When Eli discovers his things have been thrown away, he panicks. He has trouble speaking, and is rummaging through all of his things wondering where they went. He runs to the garbage can and tries to retrieve his things, and at the same time, Clare is trying to calm him down. Eli then says, "I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS!" which frightens Clare. She walks away and leaves him alone. Later on, at Clare's house, Clare finds out that her parents won't be selling the house, and that she'll be able to stay there. Later on, there is a knock on Clare's door and she is surprised that it's Eli. They sit down and talk, and Eli explains that ever since Julia's death he feels as though that if he throws something away, he'll die, or someone close to him will. Clare asks him if he's ever heard of hoarding, and he tells her that his mother tried to take him to a therapist, and that he's trying to get help. He asks Clare to always be there for him, because she's the only one that makes him feel as if he'll get better. Clare says she will, and the two share a hug. Eli and Clare are later seen in Eli's room, where they are trying to get rid of the useless junk in Eli's room. Eli has a hard time with this, but Clare guides him through it. The two then share a kiss as the scene fades to black.

In Halo Part 1, Clare is not seen much in this episode. Her scenes started out with her and Eli holding hands in the hall and then Adam getting not as much as grossed out thanks to Fiona. Eli and Clare give him advice on his relationship with her, and then later, the couple takes Adam to their secret romantic hideout, to show him where he can be alone with Fiona if he'd like too. Eli says something remotley Eli-like and Clare slaps him and says he shouldn't be talking like that in a church. All three plan to throw a New York style party for Fiona to get her mood up.

InHalo (2) Adam, Clare and Eli are setting up the abandoned church grounds for the party. After a comment about their new "party pad" Eli jokes about Adam making him look bad in front of Clare. Eli then runs off to fetch an extention chord. Eli is next seen at the party with the others; they are amazed by the great turnout. Eli asks Adam when Fiona will arrive. Adam, says he's sure she will be there any minute but shows concern. Later that evening Clare and Eli are cuddled in a hammock. Looking up at the stars, Eli asks her if she made a wish yet. She states, if she told him it wouldn't come true. Eli then replies saying: "Would it be cheesy if I said mine already has?" They share a moment but both wonder if Adam's okay.
