In Studio 1, Jacquie is rehearsing alone. In talking heads, she says she is doing this because she needs to be the best dancer in the studio, as Noah doesn't believe she is. Richelle enters, and in talking heads, she says she knows exactly what Jacquie is doing; trying to get the top spot off Summer. After Jacquie finishes a tumbling sequence, Richelle comments on it being 'pedestrian'. This provokes Jacquie and they perform a dance battle which turns into a duet. Michelle and Emily enter and ask the girls to clear out. They ask why, and Emily tells them the studio is being rented out by a new team. Thalia enters and her, Emily and Michelle hug.

In the Studio A office, Emily and Michelle are preparing for Rita to call from Absolute Dance. They are trying to convince them to let The Next Step host the Wild Styles Convention. In panic, Emily lies that Dytto is attending and manages to convince them. After the call, they worry how they are going to get Dytto.
In the locker room, Richelle and Jacquie are sitting on the couch and Amy is at her locker. Summer enters and tells her how great the new team is as Richelle and Jacquie listen in. Richelle and Jacquie approach Summer and lie to her that they are going to the AcroNation workshop and wondering if she wanted to come. They also tell her that rehearsal is cancelled, and she agrees to come.
AcroNation are warming up and Summer enters asking Thalia about the workshop. She explains that there is no workshop but is free to stay with them. She agrees to stay and performes a split-stag then aerial as she is applauded.
Winnie and Heathcliff are in Shakes & Ladders and Heath is talking about his dog Snuggles. Ozzy enters and Winnie's attention is immediately drawn to him.
