The Rock girls are preparing to leave for Calais, France and Chloe points out to Emily that she can't believe Emily is not going to make an effort to see Damon who is touring only an hour away in Paris. Emily explains she can't risk losing her scholarship. Lauren tries to apologize to Kaylie for the way she revealed her relationship with Carter, but Kaylie is determined not to let Lauren get under her skin. Upon arriving at the hotel, Kaylie notices Austin Tucker (Zane Holtz), the bad boy Gold Olympic male gymnast, flocked by a bunch of girls. Austin mistakes Kaylie for a fan and blows her off.
While at lunch the girls eat at the Subway CafÃ© where Nastia Liukin stops by to say hello. Lauren convinces Emily that she should go see Damon to get closure on their relationship and Kaylie agrees to let Emily go if it means helping her focus. Lauren buys Emily a train ticket to see Damon in Paris but unbeknownst to Emily, it is a one way ticket. Payson performs her routine to petition the National Committee but the NC denies her petition.
Back at home Steve Tanner has a viewing of the meet for all of the A List parents, which doesn't include Kim Keeler. After bumping into Emily at the train station, Austin helps Emily get back to Calais but Emily is caught by Beals returning after bed check. Lauren's plan worked and she takes Emily place in the meet.
