Annie warns Lauren that if she sees 5 spikes she will blow her whistle and that she will have to stop her routine. OMG…SUMMER! I am so glad she made it to support Lauren…now to get her back with Steve in 20 minutes…Regina asks if Lauren has been able to complete her routine without hitting 5 spikes and Marcus tells her that she hasn’t. He explains that now there is added stress with the trials so there is no way she will be able to finish. Lauren starts off wobbly but then looks over at Jake who shows her how to slow down and breathe as her hand starts going numb as if she was about to black out. She completes her routine and dismounts perfectly.
What evil mastermind doesn’t password protect?
The next routine is performed by Wendy who is also on the beam. This sequence is shot with parts of her performance and Lauren searching Wendy’s room. She starts by looking through her things and then finds the shipping package for the drugs in her trash can. Sloppy…you couldn’t throw it away elsewhere on campus? Lauren then looks on Wendy’s laptop and finds the purchasing order on the website where the drugs were purchased. REALLY? So Wendy went through all of that to get sloppy and leave her laptop open without password protection, didn’t clear her computer’s history, left the packaging in the trash…AND tried to outsmart Lauren? What a waste of effort on her part. Kelly and Sheila wouldn’t have gotten caught.
Be more than a Keeler.
Payson is getting a pep talk from her dad and explaining how playing it safe guarantees her a spot on the team. She reminds him of how he told her she puts her emotions into boxes and how she now feels like she is trapped in a box. Mark stops her and tells her to stop talking like a Keeler and how they are safe unlike the Cruzes or Tanners. He tells her to transcend being safe and write her own history and to go for what she feels is right. I love how the dads basically put everything into the girl’s lives only to let them be reckless in the final moments when it really matters. Payson gives Mac her new music and tells him that he doesn’t know what she can really do. Sasha gives her a thumbs up and she begins her routine wearing the lowest cut sparkliest red leo ever. With her hair down and her boobs two seconds from popage, she performs her spicy latin floor routine flawlessly. Trials are over and the team will be announced shortly. Which of our girls will make it to the Olympics and which ones have fallen short?
WHO IS COLLEEN?
Coach Mac is banking on Jordan, Wendy, Payson, Kaylie and Colleen. You know Colleen right, she’s that random girl who does all the awesome flippies and stuff that we never see because we have NO IDEA WHO SHE IS! They should have at least introduced her as a side character or something. Marcus is being a hardass and tells him that Kaylie is out and they only let her compete to appease her friends because they all know what her test will come back as. Kaylie meanwhile is taking her blood test when Lauren walks in and says they should stop because she is going to test positive again. She walks into the meeting with the NGO and hands them the papers she found and explains that “little bitch Wendy” did it.
Make it work!
Summer and Sasha have found each other again and Summer tells Sasha how proud she is of him. He says there were regrets that he didn’t try hard enough to make things work with Summer and she says that they did try but it wasn’t possible. They kiss and he asks her if she has stopped believing in miracles. I wanted some Summer and Steve but I think these two were always meant for each other and I am glad they wrapped their story up nicely.
Someone’s got some splaining to do
