OverviewEdit

PlotEdit

Emily, Lauren, and Payson, are all preparing to go to a gymnastics exhibition in Denver while Kaylie is living in a eating disorder rehab away from her teammates and family. While at rehab, Kaylie befriends Maeve, a pretty model who is also there to shed her eating disorder. Marcus, a rep from the NGO meets with Chloe, Emily and Cindy, Emily‘s parole officer to discuss Emily‘s status after she was arrested for stealing medicine for Brian from the pharmacy. Cindy informs Emily that since her probation restricts her to home and the gym only, she can attend the exhibition in Denver only if she wears an ankle monitoring bracelet. Emily is mortified that she will have to perform with a monitoring device everyone will be able to see. At the exhibition the girls find out that Kelly Parker is back and the Denver elite team will also be showcased at the exhibition. Austin introduces Lauren and Payson to an old friend of his named Max who seems to be immediately attracted to Payson, but she seems indifferent. The girls learn that Max is considering moving to Colorado but is trying to decide on Boulder or Denver. Lauren wanting to sink her chops into Max at first sight, suggest Boulder. Later at the exhibition party, the girls see Carter hanging out with Kelly Parker and he informs them that he has jumped ship and moved over to the Denver team. While everyone else is at the party, Max spends time sharing some of his photography work with Payson. She reveals that a "good friend" (meaning Sasha) showed her how beautiful she was, and he replies, "Lucky guy," interpreting from Payson's expression that she had feelings for this friend. Kim finds Sasha from a tip from Marty and tries to convince him not to go to Romania, but he says he failed the girls and will not return. Emily apologizes to the Exhibition crowd for disgracing the Rock club when her leg warmer falls and her monitoring bracelet is revealed.
