Lola and Richelle continue brainstorming. As Richelle does an illusion, she hears her hip crack and falls to the ground. Lola merely interprets this as a suggestion for floor work and Richelle departs under the guise of retrieving water. Meanwhile, Josh and Piper dance together with choreography that exemplifies both dance and sport as to showcase Josh's country routes and Piper's city ones. When they finish their dance, Josh proclaims that he feels like he has worked all day on the farm and lies on the floor. Piper accompanies him, her head beside his, as he discusses how much he misses the stars. He urges Piper to close her eyes and visualize stars and turns to look at Piper, asking her if the sight is beautiful. Piper quickly stands, unsure of what she is feeling, but knowing that she feels inclined to back away. Piper admits that she wishes that he was part of A-Troupe and she would enjoy dancing wit him at regionals.

Noah arrives in Studio A to hear all of his peers' ideas. When it becomes clear that Noah is disinterested in Lola's idea, Richelle immediately iterates Zara's idea of a dance that mixes Western with hip-hop, much to Zara, Jacquie, and Lola's disbelief. Ozzy suggests that the routine be focused on the studio's merge; two rival teams come out of the rain for a dance battle and realize that they are stronger together than apart. The team is receptive to the idea and it ultimately wins For the finals dance.

Richelle sits in the locker room after getting a bad diagnosis about her hip at the doctor. Lola enters the room and Richelle notably grimaces when greeting her. Richelle lies that she missed ballet practice to go dress shopping with her mom, but Lola doesn't buy it. Richelle ultimately tells Lola the truth; she has snapping hip syndrome. Lola is concerned about the diagnosis despite Richelle's persistence that she is in no real danger. Richelle forces Lola to promise not to tell anybody.

In Studio A, Michelle, kingston and Ben are coming up with the choreography. Then Emily says to Ben that he will be dancing in the final routine. Zara, Jacquie, Lola, and Richelle stretch in Studio 1 in complete silence. Zara confronts Richelle about stealing her idea just as Daniel and West enter the studio. They reveal that Zara's solo will be scrapped in favour of a pointe solo performed by Richelle. Richelle is the only person excited about the solo; Zara is disappointed that her solo was taken, Jacquie is fed up with Richelle's attitude, and Lola is worried for Richelle's health.

Lola contemplates in the locker room about whether or not she should reveal Richelle's injury. Heather enters and asks Lola if she has picked up her costumes, but immediately notes something wrong with Lola. Seeing Heather as the team's most level-headed person, Lola tells her about the predicament without using Richelle's name. Heather implores Lola to do the right thing, which is to tell Michelle and Emily. After Lola leaves to think it over some more, Heather wrongfully deduces that Lola is the one who is injured and runs off to tell Michelle. Later Michelle is sat in the office, Lola enters Studio A's office to see Michelle per her request. Michelle reveals to Lola that Heather told her that she is injured and pulls her from the finals routine. Lola tries to explain herself, cannot do so effectively, as she still refuses to rat out Richelle.
