She phones miss Kate and asks her if she can start a new team called TNS Tiff. Miss Kate says that it is fine. Tiffany walks into Studio a and goes start up to Riley and says that she is going to have hard time since she is starting her troupe.
Michelle is dancing to home and she says that this going to end the The Next Step for sure. Then Stephanie walks in and says to Michelle "A-Troupe has changed a lot since I was here".

Riley states that they need to prepare. She says that Richelle and Michelle have a duet together for Regionals.
Stephanie states in talking heads that she feels a little left out. She doesn't know where to turn because A-Troupe has changed exponentially and she hasn't been a part of it. Richelle sighs and in talking heads admits she doesn't know if being in a duet with Michelle will be too well for her. She doesn't know if Michelle can keep up with her amazing skill.
Richelle and Michelle are practicing in studio A and Michelle is doing actually better then Richelle and Richelle states in talking heads that she is intimidated, which is hard to do. Then Richelle changes the choreography of their duet and does a lot of acro and tumbling. Michelle looks on to Richelle's dancing and is confused. Richelle poses on the splits and Michelle gives a confused look and says it isn't a part of their choreography and does a double attitude turn and hits the ground after and does a log roll. Richelle says she is lying and she can get Riley to replace Michelle if they don't. Michelle says nie try Richelle and if she doesn't wanna do the choreography they did, then she can go. Richelle says I'm talking heads she won't go, Richelle scoffs and goes into Riley's office. Michelle just sighs and looks down. After a few moments Richelle walks off and says she is being replaced by Lola and Richelle will have a duet with Stephanie.
After that, Riley is teaching A-Troupe a dance to A-Side and everyone is getting it except Hunter and Stephanie. The two don't know what to do as they haven't been on A-Troupe is a while. Stephanie goes over to Michelle and asks for help. Michelle agrees. Michelle helps Stephanie.
