As the celebration continues, Skylar traipses sadly through into Studio A and considers disbanding the team.

In an attempt to release his tension, LaTroy performs a solo in Studio A in which he is a musical composer who brings the music to life. Just as he is nearing the conclusion of the dance, J-Troupe enters and one member of the troupe rudely informs LaTroy that the space has been booked by Emily for their rehearsal and urges him out. As LaTroy collects his belongings, Sloane arrives and informs LaTroy that she is no longer Luther Brown's assistant, since she is now a dancer on the tour, and offers her former job to LaTroy. LaTroy's elation is cut short when he considers Skylar’s possible reaction to his decision.

Emily warns the dancers about the difficulty of Regionals and announces that, in order to win Regionals, they must work together as a team.. With that aside, Emily inquires about the box that is in the room and Elliot reveals it to be full of team jackets that he bought for each dancer. Ethan confesses that he must be on good terms with A-Troupe, as he cannot afford to get kicked off of another team. In Neutral Grounds, Ozzy, Noah, and Piper sulk about their loss at the dance battle. Jacquie approaches them, with Ozzy taking note of her new jacket from Elliot, and invites Noah to go out with her and other A-Troupers. Noah claims he is busy before departing, leaving Jacquie upset that the one person she wants to celebrate with doesn't want to.

In Studio A, Michelle is dancing a solo to home. Michelle says that she is happy to be going to regionals but it isn’t fair on the TNS West dancers. Then Emily enters and says that michelle has grown on this team and she says to her why is she is in Studio A. Michelle confesses that she isn’t happy to have two troupes but she is happy to be on TNS East. They leave. Skylar is in the office, packing up her things then LaTroy enters and says that he is leaving to work with Luther Brown. Skylar confesses that most of her dancers have left like Jordan, Danielle and Henry. She says that she needs to find a way to get her team to merge with Emily‘s.

Michelle is running the dancers through the choreography. As Michelle advises Zara to have less flourish in her movement, Elliot credits Zara and suggests that the dance is lacking flourish, much to the others' shock. Michelle consequently lectures Elliot about respecting the dance captain, but is impressed by his similar attitude and subsequent merited suggestions to the dance. Later Richelle enters and starts dancing to Showstoppa. Richelle confesses that she is looking forward to dancing at regionals with TNS East. Piper is in Neutral Grounds with Noah. Noah confesses that TNS West has only has 8 dancers left after they lost against TNS East.

Noah is in Studio A collecting his belongings when Jacquie enters and asks if he is okay. Noah angrily responds that the best day of her life was the worst day of his, but Jacquie reminds Noah that he willingly walked away from A-Troupe. Noah angrily tells Jacquie that she will be going to Regionals and Nationals and will have a professional dance career afterwards, whereas he will be a recreational dancer for the rest of his life. Noah claims that he can't celebrate with her, as he will just bring her down, and leaves to go to Neutral Grounds. In Neutral Grounds, Noah and Ozzy are predicting how Elliot got the vast amount of money to purchase all of the jackets. Elliot enters and is immediately approached and interrogated by Noah and Ozzy. Elliot reveals that he got the money from his parents and accidentally leaves behind his credit card when he leaves. Heather gives the credit card to Noah and Ozzy to return to Elliot. As the two examine the card, they notice something for which they immediately leave to consult the internet.

Sloane and LaTroy are preparing to leave when Henry approaches and asks LaTroy if he was going to leave without a formal goodbye. Subsequently, the three perform a final dance. Henry confesses his sadness about LaTroy leaving but he is also leaving. After the dance concludes, Henry hugs LaTroy and Sloane and leaves. LaTroy confesses that the things that he will miss most about the studio are the friendships he had with the dancers. In Neutral Grounds Noah sits, frustrated with what happened with Jacquie. Jacquie enters, symbolically removes her jacket, and tells Noah that she is there for him and is not going to leave. The two take one another's hand, Noah confessing that he is with the girl of his dreams. Then Jacquie leaves. Then Ozzy enters and says he looked up Elliot and he cannot believe what elliot has done.
