Steve and Clare, also known as Mr. and Mrs. Bickerson, meet through Brandon at the Peach Pit in Spring 1994, but don't start dating until their junior year of college. Although hesitant at first, given their spiteful relationship, the icy banter quickly turns to lust and they start hooking up, with Clare as the primary instigator. Surprisingly for both of them, they develop feelings for each other and start a real relationship.
