Payson and Rigo are practicing her floor routine and he tells her he likes it but can’t articulate anything. In walks Sasha who critiques her entire routine while she watches him in shock. She asks him what he is doing there and he explains that Rigo called him in for help. He tells her that she is crazy and could risk her spot on the team for going against Mac. Payson tells him that she didn’t fight all these years for a free trip to London. Sasha tells her that he would actually like his medal back but knows he won’t get it until she wins her own so he agrees to help her start training the new routine.
Sasha is back and he wants his medal.
Kaylie’s parents arrive for a meeting with Marcus, Annie and Coach where they learn that she has tested positive for banned substances. Kaylie of course denies taking anything even for a cold and that there is a mistake but Marcus tells her that there was no mistakes. He suggests that the drug is even used as an appetite suppressant. Alex takes offense and accuses Marcus of having an agenda ever since Kaylie went against their wishes and came out with her eating disorder. He demands a retest but the NGO doesn’t allow for extra tests so he says that they need to change the rules. Kaylie asks what this all means and she learns that she cannot compete at trials and she is out of the running for the Olympics. Kaylie doesn’t even get as upset as her dad and walks away saying no…Josie is a terrible actress and I won’t miss seeing her every week to be honest.
She looks so sad right?
Mac sits down with the rest of the girls and tells them that it’s been quite the day with Kaylie getting disqualified and Keegan getting arrested but that this is not the time to ask questions. He tells them that physically they are prepared and now they need to prepare mentally for the trials. So you know how much I love Wendy and her scheming? She just upped it a notch by basically confessing to the girls that she had a part in Kaylie’s disqualification. She tells the girls that it sucks about Kaylie but she knew she was getting too thin and blames herself for not saying anything. She goes on to say that her thinness was the reason why she was making all those smoothies for her and then walks away smiling. Lauren is annoyed by her and says it is because she reminds her so much of herself which is totally true but I don’t think even Lauren hit cray cray level. Lauren has an idea to help Kaylie and enlists Jordan and Payson to help.
Lauren’s idea is to uncover Otis because she believes rubbing him helped her when she was in the hospital. She finds a spot with the same flowers that Jake gave her earlier and explains that it is the only spot on campus where they are located. Kaylie thinks the plan is stupid and it won’t help her get back on the team. She explains that she thinks they disguised him because Jake mentioned that Otis went deep undercover. She starts looking around and figures out that they didn’t bury Otis, the drowned him as he is hiding under some rocks behind a waterfall. She uncovers him with Payson’s help (and a slight fall backwards into the water) and tells Kaylie and Jordan to rub him for luck.
On any other show he would have a knife in his hand.
Kaylie, being the brat that she is, tells the girls that she is glad they found Otis but that this isn’t a game. She says that she knows Otis doesn’t bring luck and that they know it to before walking off. She’s packing in her room with her Farrah Fawcett hairdo when Austin walks in to apologize for being a dick to her and blaming her for all his shortcomings. Kaylie asks if she should feel bad for him and he tells her no but he is sorry for everything he said to her because he didn’t feel worthy of her and he was embarassed. He tells her good luck at trials and walks off but before he leaves she tells him how she is not going to trials because she failed the drug test.
We’ll give up our dream for Kaylie…logical thought process.
