Max moves back to her childhood hometown to attend college as a photography major. One day she goes into the bathroom and hears a conversation turn violent as a woman, who she later learns is her childhood friend Chloe, and the resident trustfund baby get into an altercation culminating in him shooting Chloe to death. Max than discovers she has the ability to manipulate time, and uses this to prevent Chloe's death.
Chloe went off the deep end years ago after her father was killed in a car accident and her mother married an ex-vet boomer stereotype. Max reveals her time travelling capabilities which Chloe wastes no time in trying to exploit for her entertainment. Despite Max's inexplicably growing affection for her, Chloe gradually reveals herself to be jealous, manipulative, and argumentative. At one point Max receives a phone call from another friend who she knows was molested at a party and is in a suicidal depression from the subsequent bullying. The mere act of answering the call, which is received as you're hanging out with Chloe, royally pisses the latter off because you had to ignore her for a few minutes. Later examples of Chloe's character include: preaching gun safety, then stealing her father's gun, messing with it in a junkyard, and pleading with Max to use her time powers after she accidentally shoots herself; attempting to steal from the college's handicap fund to repay the $5,000 she owes to her drug dealer (if Max disagrees it lowers your standing with Chloe); killing that drug dealer and his (rescue) dog when he asks her where his money is; and getting her boot caught in a train track as a train approaches, needing Max to save her whilst never thinking of taking off her boot.
Victoria, the alpha bitch, is mostly just a callous, stuck-up asshole. She later reveals herself to be a closet geek, and deeply empathetic individual who feels immense guilt when she fully realizes how harmful her bullying is, and tries to make amends.
