Paige forms a friendship with Lily to try to get information on how to bring Miss Angela down. Most of A-Troupe bond together.


Kingston and Amy are in Studio A taking about how to bring Miss Angela down when Kingston says he knows who can fight Miss Angela but she will need some convincing to do so. Amy says she is in and all the other dancers except for Lily of course will be in.

Paige is serving customers in Shakes and Ladders when Kingston and Amy walk in Paige asks them what they would like. Amy says we would like to know if you would be willing to help us bring down Miss Angela. Paige immediately says yes and she knows the perfect way to do so.

Richelle walks into Studio A and says it is good to be back dancing again as she missed it it made her feel invincible. Summer comes in and fills Richelle in on Miss Angela and Richelle says she sounds fair and tough but she will be the judge of that at rehearsal.

The Theme is just the next step logo.

It is rehearsal in Studio A. Miss Angela is putting together the assignments for the regionals duet and announces Lily is the new dance captain, Noah says that it’s ridiculous. The duets are Lily and Ozzy, Amy and Jacquie, Richelle and Finn, Henry and Kenzie, Summer and Noah, Winnie and Kingston Noah says Miss Angela is obviously gonna pick Lily but knowing her she will mix them all up again. In Shakes and Ladders, Piper walks in and says her mum convinced her to come back to the studio, one last time before she quits dance. Michelle and Emily notice she is upset and ask her what’s wrong. She spills about how mean Miss Angela is and everything she has done to everyone. Michelle says she sounds like a scary women. Michelle suggest as they are so close to Studio 1, they could help Piper get her confidence back. Piper agrees.

It is time for duet auditions, they do it to the song Retwist. After all the trios have gone she says that Lily was the star dancers and no one is better than her. Richelle says in talking heads that Miss Angela is alright she brought in 3 amazing dancers and her daughter Lily seems alright. Miss Angela says Lily will be doing it with Richelle . Richelle says Miss Angela isn’t that bad she recognises great talent and thats all that matters also the other dancers are being immature because this is the only way we will get to the top, Like it or leave now. Richelle enters the locker room to spray her hip, when Noah, Summer and Amy walk in and try to put her off doing the duet with Lily and Richelle says Lily is really nice and the dancers should stop as Miss Angela is nice. Amy says Richelle is under Miss Angela’s spell. Richelle leaves. Noah, Summer and Amy say that Paige is their only hope now. Piper is in Studio 1 with Michelle and Emily dancing and she is really nervous, Paige walks in and gives Piper her confidence by telling her how good she is. Piper says it’s really nice that her sister cares this much about her.

The dancers are rehearsing their chees, horrible and robotic dance centred around Lily. Richelle is watching and says Noah can do more than 30 turns and right now he is barely doing two. Amy has the best jump and right now her feet are barely off the ground. The dancers said she way horrible, but they didn’t mention she was crushing their spirits. If the dancers have no spirt then neither does TNS, Richelle says she feels completely responsible as it’s her fault Miss Angela is here in the first place, she needs to put it right. Richelle walks up to Lily and says she can’t inagine what pressure she is under right now as the Studio heads daughter, Lily says it’s really hard especially as she never has any friends anywhere in dance. Richelle says she could be her dance captain assistant, Lily says that that is a great idea and that will be really helpful. Lily aks Richelle to come with her to Studio A to pick the alternate for Regionals.

In Studio A, Lily the dance captain and Richelle the dance captains assistant tells the dancers they will be choosing the alternate for regionals. Lily asks Richelle to outline the dancers weaknesses. Richelle says she doesn’t want to but she has too to keep Lily on side. Richelle says Henry can’t to balle, have you seen his rock feet. She says Jacquie only dances with one expression tension and that never wows the judges at regionals. She says Amy has one weakness, she is just nice, Amy says thank you, but then Richelle says nice will never get you anywhere let alone regionals. She says Noah always puts relationships before dance, and she wonders if dance is even important to him anymore. She then says Kingston has just graduated from Baby Ballet, Lily says cute. Kingston says he is so embarrassed. Amy says Richelle has just turned to the dark side and there is no hope now, with Paige not being able to find any evidence the plan has gone bust.

Noah walks in to the locker room and has a go at Richelle saying that she is a traitor and she hasn’t changed one bit she is still the selfish little brat she has always been. Richelle tries to explain to Noah but he doesn’t listen, he just walks away. Lily walks in and asks Richelle to go and get Shakes with her she says yes. Richelle says keep your friends away but let the enemy stay. In Shakes and Ladders Richelle asks Lily about how much pressure she must be under being the studio heads daughter, Lily says it is but it will go away tomorrow. Richelle asks why tomorrow Lily says that tomorrow is when Miss Kate will sign the forms to make sure Miss Angela is an official partner of the next step. Liky also says she is planning so many changes to the studio and shows Richelle some pictures. Richelle says this is the amunit

Richelle meets up with Paige after Lily has gone to tell her the plan. Paige says this plan is brilliant and if everything goes to plan Miss Angela should be gone and she should get her spot back on the team.

Piper is dancing in Studio A and says it clear her mind and helps her to get through the pain of not being good enough.
