The only thing we have to fear…
In this episode the girls have a 7 day lock down to practice for China. During this time we learn that Lauren was iced out in China, none of the national team had anything to do with her, and came in last on the beam. Lauren and Kaylie pinky promise to never let boys come between them, yeah right. We see another intimate moment between Sasha and Summer but of course Summer gives Sasha the cold shoulder. During this time at the Pizza Shack Carter gives Damon some tips on dating a Rock girl.
Ellen Beals from the national committee threatens Emily with losing her scholarship if she competes. Through an IRS check they found out that she had a job and Sasha loses it. He went down to her job got crazy with the base-head manager and then became the sweetheart we know when he said I am not going to tell you to give up part of your families livelihood. Why couldn’t Emily trust him to help her and her family earlier!
Side note Chloe broke up with Steve.
MJ, Kaylie’s manager, advises Kaylie not to participate in the competition because it can hurt her career. Kaylie and Ronnie also are dealing with her dad filing for divorce. This leaves Kaylie feeling confused and when she seeks comfort from Lauren she finds Lauren and Carter in an embrace. Duh, duh, duh- What will happen next?
Emily breaks up with Damon after her Sasha, I have lost my scholarship moment. Poor Damon, he gets to open for Green Day and doesn’t even get to tell Emily. She acts in her typical manner of overreacting over the small stuff and not the big stuff. You have already been caught for breaking the rules Emily, what’s having a boyfriend at this point?
Another side note, Payson is back! On a smaller trick scale but she and Emily worked together to conquer their fear.
