In Sex Education Season 4 Episode 1, Maeve (Emma Mackey) starts at her new American college and sends a nude picture to Otis (Asa Butterfield), who goes all out trying to take the perfect one, but he doesn’t reply. At the same time, Jean (Gillian Anderson) is dealing with baby Joy while preparing for a radio show interview.
Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) and Otis rode their bikes to Cavendish College. Eric had doubts, but Otis reassured him. Aimee (Aimee Lou Wood) sent gifts to Maeve, and Cal (Dua Saleh) was excited about their six-month testosterone use. On the way, Otis mentioned a nude photo request. Upon arriving at the college, it was surprisingly welcoming. Ruby (David Layde) nearly hit a girl named Abbi with her car, but Eric saved her. They also saw Aimee, who shared that Anwar (Chaneil Kular) and Olivia (Simone Ashley) had enrolled in Taylor’s Secondary in Northbury.
Abbi and her friends gave a tour of the school with cool stuff like a meditation room and a silent disco. They also handed out tablets, which excited Eric. Otis tried to promote his clinic with pamphlets, but no one noticed. Aimee got stuck in an elevator with Isaac (George Robinson) and made a mistake, but he wasn’t too bothered. Headmaster Groff (Samantha Spiro), the substitute math teacher, struggled with technology, and students laughed at him.
Maeve gets along with his fellow students, but their new English teacher is quite eccentric. She impressed him by reading his first book, but she reacts strongly when her phone rings, tossing it out the window. The other students help her search for it. During this, she confides in them about sending a risqué photo to someone who hasn’t responded, and they help her navigate the situation. Eventually, she asks Otis if he’s ghosting her, and in frustration, he sends her a nude photo.
In art class, Aimee draws very literally, and Cal feels uncomfortable because they’re getting aroused by the nude images. Meanwhile, Adam sulks at home, looking at pictures of Eric. His mother, Maureen, tries to cheer him up and suggests finding a job if he doesn’t want to continue school.
Jean calls Maureen to ask if she can look after Joy, but when Maureen mentions having class, Jean takes the baby with her. During a rushed and chaotic job interview, Jean ends up breastfeeding Joy. Surprisingly, the interviewer loves her pitch and hires her immediately.
During lunch, the Cavendish group steers clear of Aimee, Ruby, and Groff. Ruby and Groff resort to eating in the restroom stalls. However, Eric quickly becomes part of the group when Abbi, Aisha, and Roman welcome him to join them. They chat about star signs, and Eric discovers that Aisha uses a hearing aid. He also attempts to promote Otis’ clinic but finds out that someone else already uses the name “O.”
A student asks Otis about “O,” but leaves when Otis mentions orgasms. Later, Otis and Eric realize there’s another popular sex therapist named “O” on campus, who is a busy female therapist. Otis contacts her to ask her to shut down her clinic, claiming she copied his idea. She stays calm and counsels him when he talks about caring for Joy and struggling to reply to Maeve. But Otis becomes upset and tries to promote his clinic by making an announcement. Eric is concerned, and it’s justified because Otis starts off poorly, saying he thinks about sex and learned about it from his mother.
Finally, with some assistance from Eric, he clarifies that he’s a sex therapist and connects his phone to the projector to display his flyer. However, chaos erupts when he receives a notification that his nude message to Maeve was not sent, and he accidentally opens it. His phone connects via Bluetooth, displaying a collection of explicit images on the projector screen. After managing to shut it down, he hastily runs away.
He hides in his clinic, and Eric tries to comfort him. However, he ends up bringing up the topic of nudes. Cal suddenly asks Otis for a counseling session and shares their struggle with heightened sexual feelings. Otis empathizes with Cal and reassures them that it’s a natural part of growing up, much like a teenager experiencing puberty.
Cal feels better but becomes awkward when trying to greet Jackson, who walks away. Viv calls out to Jackson, who admits he’s still trying to get over Cal. She claims they don’t have time for relationships, but she blushes and flirts with Beau from Math class, making Jackson grin.
At home, Jean seems scatterbrained, barely listening to Otis and briefly misplacing Joy. Exhausted, Otis calls someone for help. Meanwhile, Eric’s mother wants him baptized and gives him a skeptical look when he asks about zodiac signs. He’s thrilled when Abbi adds him on Cavendish’s social media platform, Dolly. Groff visits Maureen to inquire about Adam missing school. She tells him Adam needs effort if he wants to talk to him. Groff mentions he’s going to therapy and waves sheepishly when he spots Adam.
Otis and Maeve finally talk on the phone, and he apologizes. He admits he’s not good with photos and recalls O’s advice about feeling vulnerable because she’s not coming back. Maeve reassures him and they attempt phone sex. They both enjoy it, but she suddenly leaves to hang out with classmates, including someone named Tyrone, which makes Otis jealous, leading him to look up Tyrone online.
