Spoiler alert: This section contains spoilers for Heartbreak High Season 1 on Netflix.

Everyone knows a best-friend breakup hurts far worse than a romantic uncoupling. Amerie is genuinely perplexed when Harper arrives at the school assembly in Heartbreak High Season 1, Episode 1 with a shaved head and a hostile attitude.

After all, what's a better way to bond with your bestie than by setting an a---hole's car on fire?

You can stream Heartbreak High Season 1 now on Netflix.
